    Sincere thanks to people on the forum and factory staff, but notably Judith Jacobsen who helped us achieve "higher order thinking" and a good outcome.

    Third pic shows the cut-outs - there were about twenty of 100 mm or 70 mm diameter, including for the four outlets. Installer could not believe it...

    Hi Hayden, I have requested joining the Fb group but suspect you won't be able to verify me! I use the name Thelma Lives (it's a family thing).

  • Bob and Lins created a new topic ' where to put tack of cruising chute' in the forum.
    22 hours 30 minutes ago

    hi everyone,

    We are looking for ideas where to attach the tack of our cruising chute. Is the pulpit strong enough? Is it far enough forward? We have built a prototype sprit which sits between the bow rollers but it will cost a fortune to have made properly, a price we will pay if there is no other option. Would love to know how others have solved this problem.

    Do you have a source for the gotext packing ? I assume it will be the same for my IP37

    An old thread, but for others down the road, I have had great luck with US Boat Haulers. usboathaulers.com/
    This is a one man operation and Ernst has a terrific rig and great attitude. He can arrange everything on either side or both and stays true to his word and knows sailboats as a sailor himself. He used to be local to Texas, but I believe he is now based out of Florida. Prices are good and he does not hit you with overages like others. We used him a couple years ago to move a Cape Dory from the coast to a lake and will use him again to move the Cape Dory back to the coast to sell it. Going into the lake required some creative thinking and he did it and for what he agreed to do it for, even though the job took a day longer and helped re-commission the boat a week later when the pieces of the rigging that the boat yard rigger broke came in.

    The prices through Island Packet direct on the website are pretty good. We are switching to the chromed ones and still trying to find a better deal than IP, but have not yet.

  • mark rodger created a new topic ' sink plugs' in the forum.
    4 days ago

    Hi guys as per usual I need info when I am not near the boat. All our sink plugs are starting to perish and are past their best. She who must be obeyed would like them all changed. My problem is twofold, I did not check the size before leaving the boat and as we are out here in Greece everything is metric. I have a work mate from the states who will pick some up for me but I need to know the sizes. Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance

    We have been using this dinghy ladder to make it easier to get back into the dinghy when snorkeling and when you are not standing on the botton. This is USA made, and really is a great design.

    Thanks for the offer and all of your help. I've put the order for the new version in now and hopefully will receive it in a few days - meaning we can finally get off for some cruising around menorca.

    Thanks again,
    Chris.

    I'm going to change to the newer version - I think there must be some sort of supply problem in Europe for the old version.

    What do you recommend as a reducer - it seems there are quite a few options - grp, brass, silicone, stainless ?

    Chris:
    The old version shaped like a U is usually available. This is the once that clogs up after a few years.
    Old Style Yanmar Mixing Elbow Part #7 Yanmar Part # 129198-13500 ELBOW, MIXING, about $200

    The newer on is SQUARE and usually never needs changed out:
