    Ok I've looked all over for the water heater in this boat, but alas..... The owners documentation shows it should be under the floor of the back cabin. However, there seem to be no way to access it.... Help anyone?

    Engine room, follow water line from pump. I am pretty sure it was on port side forward toward bulkhead tucked behind the holding tank but it's been a long time.

    Are you a long time owner of the boat?

    Did the hot water work in the past?

    If it’s new to you and the hot water never worked, is it possible that a previous owner removed the water heater??

    Just had it about a year, but have used the water heater several times. Quit working about 3 weeks ago. I’ve scoured the engine room looking for it. The owners manual seems to show it under the back cabin floor, but there seems to be no where to access that space.

    Go into the salon. Open up the big panel on the floor, in the middle. There is a vertical panel forward that is removable. It's behind that. Or at least is was on my '92. There may be a clear hose that runs along the bottom of that storage area. That is the water heater drain.

    Let me know if that is where it is.

    Thanks, I'll check that. I did dive into the back big panel, in the salon. I thought it might be behind it, but it was not. I thought the front divider went all the way up to the compartment whose panel goes up to the front birth. But, there might be enough space in between for a water heater. I'll let you know:)
