How can we remove the spa from the top of our houseboat? It is hardwired and we would like to remove it and open up the space on top of the boat.

Yes, it can be removed
by: Kevin G

I have a 1999 Stardust that had a Jacuzzi. I removed the breaker and wires form the panel, then, I cut the Jacuzzi up in place, then hauled it to the trash bins, Cut and capped the wires. Pushed it down into the ceiling and had a fiberglass guy come and patch the holes, new gelcoat in that area and no more Jacuzzi. I noted the exact location (in my logbook) of the hole on top so if I sell it one day, the wiring can be found again to install another one.

Remove hot tub

I cut mine up with a sawsall into carry size pieces. Then I cut the power short enough to stuff it down into the ceiling. Put wire caps and taped each wire. Disconnnected the wires from the breaker panel and put tape over the breaker to remind me to not turn on. Next I had my fiberglass guy come to patch the hole and re-gelcoat the area under the tub. Looks great. Also, noted in my log book the exact location of the wires should a future owner want one. Good luck.
