  1. Perhaps Euro boat specifications are Imperial gallons? US gallons are smaller than Imperial gallons. US gallon = .83 Imperial gallon so the tanks could possibly be the same.
  2. I have the LunaSea light and it illuminates the windex very well. In my case no need for the windex light, which we did have before but deleted after seeing how well the masthead trilight worked. This probably has a lot to do with the physical location of the trilight with respect to the windex. The trilight is very bright.
  3. Highly recommend ShipModul products for multiplexing NMEA data, and they have WiFi models. They are super well built and programmed, great product support.
  4. Does your local PHRF body permit a bowsprit of minimal projection? PHRF Lake Ontario permits an no-penalty sprit with length of J+15% which is gets the luff of a sail tacked ahead of the forestay to just clear of the pulpit. On my 30' boot the sprit projects about 21" and does not trigger a penalty. The Code 0 works fine on this length of sprit.
  5. FYI: I had a bad experience with the white tape used for shrink wrapping. It was applied to the cabin top of my boat to cover some removed windows and other holes - and left on there for about 1 1/2 months, outdoors. It was effective at covering the holes but when the tape was removed the adhesive separated and stayed behind leaving a terrible mess on the gelcoat. The adhesive was remove-able with a lot of work, extremely aggressive. The only thing that took it off was Bestine - rubber cement thinner.
  6. I agree. There was a boat called ICHIBAN in SoCal that was beautifully sorted, but mostly stock. THE SOURCE was refit in an outstanding way, however modified so heavily it might not be an ideal example. Doing the feature on Pacific High might be good too, even though she's technically not an Olson 30 she is the prototype boat. I believe she is in Santa Cruz.
  7. Why would someone use track mode with this tiller pilot? I can answer that: 1 – deliveries with your motor 2 – sails up and you have no wind data available I have an ST2000+ on my boat and have it connected to NMEA0183 data from iNavX, via a multiplexer. I found a few things with this when making it work. The keystrokes needed to invoke Track Mode can be a bit counter intuitive. If you get the rapid beeping alarm after pressing -10/+10 make sure to press them together again to turn on Track Mode. The alarm is telling you the data is being received. Also the numbers on the bulkhe
  8. MIddayGun - good call on beam to skin connection - looks like plug welds at forward and aft edges of the vertical beams. It's a strong structure as designed and built. Now? Cutting a $$$ custom keel in half before you've figured out how to safely put it back together, if that's even possible, was ill advised. It's done now but can it be salvaged? You still have the righting moment to figure out, let alone how you will make the structure sound. 4,500 or so pounds is a lot of weight to manage on the end of the fin. I am torn between trying to conjecture how it could be done safely and just
  9. Is there a trick to connecting to the unit to download data? I use Mac computers if that matters (it shouldn't?). I have tried a few computers so far and when I plug the unit into the computer all the happens is the unit shows "USB" on the screen and charging icon, but I cannot locate the unit itself. I tired using Disc Utility as well to see if I could "see" the unit as a drive, no luck.
  10. That engine sounds fantastic! I'd be so happy if I were you.
  11. If I were doing this project I'd opt for the more modern "Foss" design rudder (with the spelling-challenged title on the drawing!). Make note of how this diagram has a significant error - later corrected in the production of the rudder itself. I think they've made ~ 5 of these for the Olson 30 in the last several years. Rudders with stainless shafts have an internal armature welded to the shaft. I'd like to know - out of curiosity - what sort of internal structure is in the original rudder with the pultruded fibreglass shaft. I manage olson30.org and I have some other images of
  12. The 0 332 019 150 seems to be rated 30/40a. There is another part 0 332 019 157 with 4-pins (has only 1x 87 terminal) that is 40a.
  13. Bosch 0 332 019 150 is an exact replacement. For example: https://germansupply.com/all-purpose-relay-12v-30a-genuine-bosch.html It's a widely available item.
