Michael:

I think that looks like a Ronstan Series 40 Block - Double Block - Becket - 2 Axis Shackle Head RF41202
Google that up, and see if that matches.

hayden replied to the topic 'Head Intake hose replacement on IP35' in the forum. 9 hours 36 minutes ago

David and Peg:

The factory replaced our IP35-165 1994 head hose in 2013 during our refit there with them. They used "3/4" Marine Wet Exhaust Hose SAE J2006R2" They ran it the way the old hose ran which is from the sea strainer over the prop shaft under the battery box into the qtr berth floor to the port settee forward around the holding tank then into the head floor and up to the toilet.

Another way I would look at is to follow the shower drain hose directly up the bilge. This could run from the sea strainer to the bilge over the shower drain pan and into the saloon floor bilge area then forward to the mast and then up under the head.

I guess that they factory connected the old hose to the new hose and used the old hose to pull the new one. That is what I would try.

Hayden...just sailed into Puerto Rico from the DR!

I need to replace the 3/4" head intake hose. Hayden you asked a similar question a few year ago. Has anyone done this before? My main concern has to do with pulling the new line through the hull liner to the head. Also, what type of hose should I use. The existing is a Shieldflex premium water hose model 100-0340. The only hose I can find with this model number is from MPI.

I took all the Stainless Steel rub rail off my IP 35 this winter, and re finished / polished it at home in the basement.
The company "WALTER" is the pre eminent supplier of grinding discs , cut off wheels, Sanding and polishing wheels in North America. They have several you tube videos on polishing Stainless to a mirror like finish. I'd start with watching those videos.
Personally I used a " variable speed" mini grinder and the Walter polishing wheel # 07-U 451, and a polishing 'paste'. I was pleased with my results. WALTER also make a belt type polishing device that is more suited for round pipe. I did not use this.
Careful though,
1.you need the variable speed mini grinder, to get the recommended speed.
2. a mini grinder is a dangerous tool - don't underestimate it , and wear all the proper PPE -- long sleeves , heavy pants, thick gloves, eye protection , etc.

I lost the the double block that hangs from the end of the hoyt boom used for the staysail sheet (I'm assuming the cotter pin failed).

I've found this picture on the Forespar website, but haven't been able to find a part number.



Does anyone have a suggestion for a replacement part.

Thanks,
Mike

The IP 27 seems to use a simple, single layer foam.

After much searching, it seems that the closest replacement foam is closed cell IAFC05N distributed by Soundown Corp. It is Ensolite, made by Armacell, but I could not determine exactly which type. $40 included shipping.
www.armacell.us/categories/ensolite/

In my crude flame test, it self-extinguished just like an old sample of the existing foam. It seems to be stiffer (smaller cells) but I think it will do the jobs of sealing the rim of the hatch, and some noise suppression. They say to attach it using 3M Super 77 spray adhesive.

I plan to install it sometime in April and will let you know if there are any issues.

Oh, I got it now, maybe that's the way I should have gone. Let us know how it all,works out for you. I know I gotta drill holes in the boom and the mast. I already installed one of them on my previous Cat30

Thx for the reply. Just to clarify Mark at Garhauer built the tang for the boom track. I'm not using the factory tang just trying to figure out the best way to get it in the track. PANACEA already had a C bracket with a pin installed on the mast. They are saying 70 here this wkend I'm excited about that! Thx Jeff
