    Seems like your boat coming from Lake Michigan would have a #3 & #2 with proper leads to adjus vs the j105 jib you used ?

    Three Year Plan

    6' 4" headroom ?, maybe a Columbia of some sort. You could play basketball down below in one of those.

    PVC conduit inside mast?

    When redoing my mast, I had the cable for the wind instruments, double wires for the fly light and the cable for the vhf. To lighten things up we removed the PVC conduit tube and we were going to use a halyard cover removing the core and use as a conduit for chafe protection. But, we ended using one of those roll up canvas garden hoses cutting off the ends and using as a conduit for chafe protection and tangle protection from the halyards...triple spreader rig and you can get the hose lengths in 50' length....lot easier than trying to feed the three wires/cables through a halyard cover. Figured we saved a couple pounds is all but as you know it translates to a lot at that height to down below.

    Quick connect bilge hose?

    You can buy the poly quick couplings with garden hose threads , but be careful when ordering, there more common with NPT threads. Check Banjo in IN..... to adapt from garden hose you would need a part "A" and part "D" for the male and female ends of the garden hose. I've got them on my garden hoses around my yard.. or you can just buy the hose shank ones ..part 'E" in picture is male and a part "C " is female and eliminate the threaded connections. All local hose an farm supply shops have them on the shelves.

    Lake Michigan waves

    Regarding the NM 40 stolen in the Caribbean, do you know what the story on that was? Seems like I'd be impossible to hide a boat of that design for very long, unless stripping of equipment & sinking.
