The big black hose with the green tape around it is the exhaust, which loops up to the underside of the seat in an attempt to get it as high above the waterline as possible to prevent flooding of the engine. The red hose next to it is, I think, the discharge from the electric bilge pump. The two dark hoses joined at a fitting are from the manual Whale Gusher bilge pumps: the modern plastic one on the port side (right of photo), and the older aluminum one out of view under the starboard cockpit seat. The cockpit drains are in there somewhere.

In the center you can see edge on the HF tuner. You can see the green copper strapping that grounds the unit to the Monitor paddle. That sounded like a great idea by the consultant at the time, except that even when the paddle is in the water it can be moving around disrupting its conductivity. I augmented this with double heavy wiring (red) to the keel bolts.
I got the large gas cylinder in Hawaii. The smaller cylinder is from Australia and out of date and in any event the Americans wouldn't touch it because it was non-US. Happily, the Mexicans, like the Tahitians, had no problem in refilling it.
