I find the problem with the eyebrows is the water running off tends to leave to streak marks on the side of the coachroof.
I have gone back to bare teak on the eyebrows and toerails.
I have a pair of these in my bodega in Isla Mujeres after replacing Andromeda's OEM jib cars with Garhaeur's EZ Glide 3 system. I would be happy to send you a replacement, you pay shipping, but you will have to wait until my next trip, probably first week in August.

Could someone tell me where I can get a Ronstan RF 874 T track car, Or at least what is available that can replace it? [
Thanks for the Kanberra gel recomendation . Great product.
after unsuccessful search I gave up and in desperation bought a regular, flat bottom block with an intention to sand the post to flat. And a surprise - of course I tried to mount it first, the base is stainless, but so soft that if conforms to the shape of the post when I tightened the screws!
Sorry about your misfortune. Talk to Gareth at Dura-Weld. They have tank dimensions for the IP 29 and all others. He will tell you about 3 weeks but he easily yielded to expediting construction when I informed him that my boat mechanic had a small window of time upcoming to do the replacement and we had the tank in about 9 days. The work was done and the tank is functioning great. I had all hoses replaced also.
I highly recommend the Kanberra odor control that Hayden recommended . It's great. The guys did a great job cleaning up the disaster and the odor wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. After sailing a few days the boat is fresh with no lingering smell.

Hi Captain Krusty,
Unfortunately, our experience is almost exactly like yours. We settled on a 1994 IP 29 on July 3 and immediately discovered a leak in the holding tank. If you have any particular person that you dealt with to get a new holding tank, we'd be grateful for contact info.

Please do send the pictures when convenient. Or just describe how the cables are run from the thruster to the port side hull. Thanks so much...
When you had the stainless steel off the edge of the Teak Cap Rail did you happen to take any photographs of what the teak looked like? If so, if you could share those I would greatly appreciate that. I'm interested in how the teak wood strip underneath the edge of the Cap Rail looks. Mine has a small gap in some areas back near the latter 1/4 of the hull.

Batteries added to bolster house bank. Am underway this week. Will send pics when we get to home marina later this afternoon.

Don't worry about the chain plates. They are a concern but not a deal breaker. Enjoy the boat. Deal with issues as they come up.
Thanks for the reply Hayden, I really want the boat, what scares me is all the talk about the chainplates, its worrying me to the point of walking away, the sea trial is in a few days, I will see how that goes at least.
