    New to this forum and recently acquired an interest in an older (93) Luhrs 290 Sport. Just about done with engine workovers (harmonic balancer, raw water pumps, hoses, belts, alternators, pulleys, carburetors, heat exchanger etc).

    Won't be back on the boat for another week and am looking to replace the fresh water pump. Does anyone know the location/access area for the fresh water pump (I think it's accessible from the lazarette panel at the stern but haven't had time to look yet). TIA for any info on where this pump is located.

    Welcome to YF DRL. I'm not sure on your boat but it shouldn't be hard to find. just follow the line. I've seen them on the engine room wall, inside the head vanity and under the galley sink on boats your size. (On a quick glance searching water pumps I also see one under the cabin steps). All that's assuming the location wasn't moved by a previous owner. So the best advice is turn it on and listen or follow the line.

    Thar she blows...Back bulkhead in the engine compartment. Goes to show, I was spending all my time at the other end of the engine compartment. Thank you for the quick reply!
