Interesting location as that space is normally left empty. You have a space under the starboard berth where my heater is that is larger but more useful for readily accessed storage but as you say each has advantages and disadvantages. I think I would prefer my heater where yours is as you dont often had to get to it but I am not going to change it as to much effort required. I will give your bulkhead solution a try on both sides.
Cheers,

I have attached a rather poor photo form my phone of the bulkhead I have inserted in the starboard lazarette to ensure nothing falls and jams the steering. Apologies for the fact that the woodwork is not up to the normal Hanse standard.  I hang my power meter on the inner side of it and you can just see it.

Thanks for posting the picture of the other side, which gives me guidence on where to fit things, as this will be the main focus of my installation. The woodwork looks fine to me and fully fit for purpose. True its not highly polished mahogany, as the interior cabin but it matches the off white finish within the lockers, so looks good.

I am planning on fixing a couple of wooden blocks, as you have to allow me to screw a section of angled aluminium to the starboard side like your bulkhead. The idea of the angled ally is to provide protection above the tiller arm to the Webasto duct from the heater unit which is fitted between the rudder stock and the front of the loacker.

Cheers,

Rob

Hi Thomas,
Great purchase with the boat! I also have a the same boat. If I over fill the fresh water tanki quickly find water in the bilge. Try running your tap for a few minutes and then empty bilge, it worked for me!!
Now just have to try not overfilling the tank!!

Hi all - thanks for your many good advice and ideas.
 
I tried everything and then found that the aft shower hose was broken and leaking.
 
Changed the hose and now hoping for a dry ship this summer.
 
Cheers, Thomas

Hi Thomas

Great that you found it. Had the same problem and it was the hardest leak to find (so far..). As I mentioned it might be worth putting a isolating ball valve before the hose. 

Has anyone changed brands on the aft shower head fitting? The push button on mine repeatedly break?

All best

Russ

I discovered a leak last year. Finally found it. It was the coupling under the sink in the bathroom.
