Hello all!
I’m the proud new owner of a J30. Just bought it 2 days ago from someone who didn’t know a thing about the boat.
So here’s my stupid question: how do you fill the water tanks? I don’t see an opening on the deck.

Via the threaded plug directly on the top of the water tank(s) under the port settee. I usually run the dock hose down through the center hatch in the cabin. I also usually lose a hold on the hose and make a total mess.

Ok I suspected that was case but figured I’d check before I flooded my cabin. Thanks so much!

Jon - what hull number did you get? We want to make sure you get in the fleet database.
