Hi Ed - - as fyi - our ports are the 14-3/4" x 4-3/4" (fairly sure on that). Would be good to double check the size of your ports and the distance between hinges to make sure things match. Also, they have models without the lift arm (likely standard model) and for the complete assembly - various options on the spigots. I think ours are straight spigots (but good to check if you are buying a complete port light. Good luck.

Not really. Still open to confirming portlight manufacturer.

Thanks for the response. These look like the same ports. There are a couple things different but I dont think it will matter. I really only need the inside frame with the glass. Somebody went on one of our brokerage boats and "borrowed" one of the lenses and inside frame. They forgot to bring it back. (lol) The knobs are different and these have a support arm which the old ones did not. The knobs are not a big deal since the old ones are still on the existing port. I will call the company and see if they can tell me if this is a replacement. Thanks again

Hi Bratsdad - Not sure about the IP32, but later IP's including IP380 had port lights very similar to (or exactly the same as) rectangular lights from Marine Depot Direct. The link below is for IP380 ports. If not these, check out the other sizes.
www.marinedepotdirect.com/stainless-rect...-portlight-1423.html . Usual disclaimers - no interest in these folks. (but I had good experience buying from them)

Looking to replace a stainless steel port light on a 1990 Island Packet 32. Can anyone tell me who the manufacturer is? There are no markings on port light. The thumb screws are the ones with the triangle shaped knob.

Did you have any luck finding the manufacturer for these portlights? I need to replace the inside frame and glass on one.

DrewS created a new topic ' varnish for sole?' in the forum. yesterday

Hi Folks,

Does anyone know what type (incl brand) of varnish IP used for the sole (floors)?

We are redoing ours now, after 16+yrs. (actually yard is doing the work). My thought was that residential or commercial 1 part polyurethane satin, for hardwood floors would be fine. (3 coats or so) Any recommendations most welcome.

Thanks,
Drew

We did this run last year, inside from Miami to Marathon. We had strong east winds, 25+ and sailed all the way. I do not recall any worries with depths and we simply followed the markers. I know ip40 Island Bound, Trish and Bill ran it this year as well.

Go for it. I see no problem.

Plus there are many great anchorages, pubs and stops along the way. I could see taking 3 4 or 5 days for this cause it so protected.

One item I did notice Noth of channel 5 is when running in sea grass beds, your depth guage reads the grass and it may say 3 4 feet but it's not. That's the only odd thing I ever found.

Most IPS do not have an emergency tiller due to the use and install of the Edson Rack and Pinion gears under the helm seat. For newer is with the newer helms, the ones that do not have the steering wheel post to straddle at the helm, these could take an emergency that fits over the rudder post inside the seat. We made one for our IP35 when we installed the new Edson CDI helm. So, you do not need to worry about an ER tiller.

Not sure if I should post this here, but please advise if not and where I should post.

I have a 1987-#182 IP-31 with Raymarine Smart-5X ST 6002 auto pilot installed and original Edson Rack & Pinion steering. This is my first sailboat and I always thought there is supposed to be an emergency tiller on the boat, but apparently I don't have one and previous owner said I don't need one. This does not sound correct to me.

This is likely an ignorant question but I just don't have enough knowledge to work it out. What does an ER tiller look like and how does it operate? Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Jude

George Meinke created a new topic ' Miami to Marathon Inside????' in the forum. 5 days ago

I would like to go slowly from Miami to Marathon via the inside route. I am pretty sure I can get to Tarpon Bay at Key Largo inside - Is it possible to go all the way to Boot Key. The tide thru Feb 2016 seems to be 0 to +6" so not of much help. We a fairly lightly loaded - draft 4'10" I would guess.
Thanks for any help

Hi Richard, there is a dedicated breaker for my deck was pump also.
Can't recall seeing a thru hull fitting in the under the forward berth, where exactly is your's?
I had assumed that the wash water was fresh not salt, but that would explain things, maybe someone can confirm?
