Bilge filter box progress

Filter boxThe job of sorting out the bilge filter box is progressing quite nicely, though a bit slow due to the weather we've been having recently.

I'm going to make a start on painting the bilge line pipes next.

The box and pipes are painted green, to denote seawater.

When I bought the green paint, it looked a slightly more modest hue than it now appears.

I wonder how that blue paint I bought is going to turn out?


  1. Greens for sea water! I guess blue is for fresh water, red diesel?brown for oil? am I right ?

  2. Hi Rob

    Yellow for oil on LJ, otherwise you are bang on.

    Ooooh, color coding! I like that concept! If it's simple enough that even I understand it, that's a good thing...we're working on labeling all systems thoroughly. KJ is already pretty well labeled, but there's always room for improvement!

  5. Hi Greg & Jamie

    I've just bought myself a Dymo labeller, so will also be labelling up loads of stuff soon.
