OK, one of the items on the spring "dry dock" repair list for the Trade Wind is to gut the fresh water lines and re-plumb with PEX. So here is a list of my current nightmares.
1) Would it be best to use 1/2" or 3/8" tubing? I see several people here who I have high regard for have gone with 1/2". Against that, I have read several comments to the effect that 3/8" tubing will fit the fixtures with less problems, adaptors and what not. Thoughts from those of you who have done this refit would be appreciated.
2) Should I be adding extra cut-off valves or drains in the system? Do the benifits out weigh the leak potential?
3) What do you wish you had thought about before you started that became all to apparent later in the project?
4) Oh yeah, is it pronounced PEX or P-E-X?
