My plan is to start from scratch on every aspect of this restoration project. That means, all of the plumbing had to go!
I started in the head area by removing all of the hoses that were attached to thru-hulls, the head, sink, and the holding tank.
When I have come across a stripped hose clamp, or a “stuck” hose, I use my Dremel tool to assist me with the hose’s removal. The Dremel’s chuck is tightened down on an arbor that has a metal cutting disc attached to the end of it. This setup makes removing troublesome hose clamps a breeze!
In the image below, I could not get the hose off of the deck fitting. I left my heatgun at work, so sliced through the hose, cutting the wire reinforcement, with my Dremel and cutting wheel.
