Re: Fuel fill idea

Ahh, ok, that makes more sense. Having recently repowered, I tend to run my new engine at its optimal output nearly all of the time, which I didn't always do before. I also replaced the soundproofing in the engine compartment at the time, so it's much quieter now, which may have something to do with...

Re: Fuel fill idea

Thanks! It's actually a gear pump. Yes, I'm still untying the cans and refilling them in the cockpit. This is partly because I need to put together a separate hose to swap in for filling the cans (with a shutoff valve near the end), and partly because I've been sailing alone this summer and I would ...

Re: Replacement rudder for Mull 28

Woah, that’s crazy, I’m so sorry to hear it! Where did it separate? Do you have any pictures of what’s left?

Goddamn. That might make me forget about the cost of shipping, at least for a little while.

Re: F21 with running backstays and bowsprit?

They are balsa cored. I know this because I have seen one that has been cut in half. The construction appeared excellent.

Re: Bilge line - vented loop?

Absolutely, yes. I’m a fan of the Forespar vented loops, and I use one for each of my bilge pump outlets. They’re not too pricy, and the peace of mind is well worth it.

Re: Fuel fill idea

Just wanted to give an update and show some progress shots. The fitting is in, the pump is in place and wired up, and the system works! It was a real bastard getting the PVC inserts into that 19-year-old hose, especially because I had to do it with the hose in place. The wind was so good on the way ...

Re: Dinghy Mounts for F38

I've had two, and I really like my current setup. On my first F38, the previous owner had installed St. Croix model 300 removable davits (since discontinued), which were just sturdy enough to handle my 9.5' RIB and 9.9hp outboard. When I bought my current F38, I decided to go with the larger model 5...
