Hamptons come with a beautiful cockpit table and seating area. On all the builds I have seen, there is a small refrigerator located in the base of the table. Having had several of these small fridges in our last house, I'm generally not a fan of them. And we have plenty of refrigerator space in the galley.
Also, the boat I crew on regularly has a built in pressure washer, and it sure makes cleaning up the boat a lot easier. So naturally I wanted one too. Working with HYG, we sourced an appropriate pump that would be located in the engine room. For this application, you don't want pressure high enough to damage teak or force water where it shouldn't go. We aren't cleaning concrete driveways here. I forget the actual pressure, but it is something like 300psi.
You might be wondering what these two things have to do with each other.
That's right, we located a 100' hose reel in the base of the table! Also seen at the top is a quick connect for the air compressor. The hose feeds out of the port side, because that's where the stairs are going up to the flybridge deck. With 100 feet, I can reach every place on the boat.
I gotta say HYG sourced a great product. It's a Glendinning reel and hose. By default the switch to power the reel is mounted on the reel itself, which wasn't very convenient.
Lu disconnected the switch and we tried several locations, settling on mounting on this door. He's taking a picture to email to his tech to do the work. High-tech!
We are also adding a little shelf above the reel to take advantage of the storage space. I just have to get the wand and I'm ready for wash down time. Just another way Mahalo will be special.
