While we were here at Braunston Boats we also had another little job dealt with. The two holes you see below are in the side of the boat and they did have two 'skin fittings' that vented the waste water from the galley sink and the waste water from the dishwasher. The thing is that skin fittings can be vulnerable to being ripped off apparently and these two skin fittings were a bit close to the water line and we risked a flooded boat should the worst happen.

Solution, two bits of galvanised pipe...
These are pushed back into the boat, and welded into position. The pipe comes out in the under-sink cupboard where it is connected to the appropriate wastes

Welded, ground back and ready for a coat of bitumen
Joe then re-plumbed the sink and dishwasher wastes to the new pipes, using two jubilee clips for each waste/pipe and ensuring that are as safe from the risk of flooding.
That's another job jobbed as my old Grandma would say!
