Default hot water heater on a 38 soinic ? I need help

.

were any 38 sonics sold without a hot water heater ?

how hard would it be to add one if it never had one ?

where does it mount and will it be a nightmare trying to run hoses to both sinks ???

I made an offer a 38 sonic , he sent me a text accepting the offer but he hit me with "it doesnt have a hot water heater"

at first I thought it needed to be replaced , we are communicating via text so its not easy to figure out whats going on but it seems like he is saying the boat never had one

thanks in advance for any feedback

My sonic came with a instant hot heater(tankless), its plumbed in under the helm where the water line runs in from engine hatch area, the heater is inline berfore the head sink and the T to the galley sink.

I have a 358 and the instant hot water heater is mounted in the cabinet next to the refrigerator under the sink, mounted right to the wall. should be a pretty easy install, I wouldn't be suprised is the wires are already run and just laying in that compartment somewhere.

The wiring is there, probably under the carpet in the cabinet under the galley sink. Some have them in the head under the sink. Just need to hook wires to the breaker and T in the water lines

They work pretty good sometimes depending on the source of power it may vary

Mine works pretty good. You need to let it warm up. Make sure if you have to do any wiring use heavy gauge. It draws more current than my A/C or microwave.
