  1. That was an awesome vid. Thx!
  2. The wiring looms are much cleaner now, although I don't have that nice conduit to hide the wires and I'm just using regular bus bars not those fancy connectors. I need to move the NKE Junction box panel up from under the chart table to behind the electrical panel and further away from potential water in the boat. When I do this, it will be their final resting place (I sourced the base NKE system used out of a J/111 that had gone B&G) and I will be able to cut a lot of the loops of extra wire out, which I have been loathe to do until finalizing my plans. One problem is I went and
  3. This was my before, but I've come a long way since. All works though...
  4. What an awesome looking electrical install. Mine is DIY and not quite as good. One issue with NKE is you get tons of wires and junction boxes. Need to shorten and redo...
  5. Mustang Survival EP series XL fits tall and slim compared to Henri Lloyd and Gill.
  6. Here is an actual pic of Il Moro sitting in Mosquito Creek https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_Moro_Challenge Owned by a member of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club. Used to sail it around for fun and because he could. Always seemed to have a big smile and be enjoying himself when he took it out with his 25+ friends for Round Bowen or Easter Seals Charity Regattas. No one died, but I've heard it makes some scary noises.
  7. What does the Flying J1 rate in as for PHRF and ORC? Sweet looking ride.
  8. Works for re-anodizing your mast too...
  9. I didn't even know engine anodes were a thing until reading this thread. Will have to check on mine on my 3GM30 next time I'm down on the boat.
  10. Made me look... Chapter 12 is Weather. LOL!
  11. I have one of those Toto Toilets. They are boss! You'll never go back...
  12. Up in Vancouver we've been using ORC for Div 1 & 2 (PHRF 99 or lower) for VARC distance racing/regattas for many years and it seems to work pretty well. ORC Club measuring and scoring is much less of a drama than some on this thread are making it out to be. The ORC reps have worked hard at their own expense to get as many boats measured as possi ble. I also don't recall any arguments about the wind speed chosen by an RC for scoring. Div 3 (100-175) recently voted to continue using PHRF as there are a couple of boats that would have required hull files and they were concerned it
  13. I've got a clear plastic fuel tank in the middle of the boat under the cockpit. Someone jiffy'd 20L, 40L, 60L on the side of it. Can easily see the fuel level. Matches the fancy gauge a couple of feet away next to the engine control panel.
  14. I installed a "lightly used" Raritan PH II on my last boat (that I got for free). I think they are the best ones out there, but pricey new in store. Worked great! Current boat has a Plastimo head and the bowl is ABS plastic which is super light weight, but I am unable to find a rebuild kit for it.
  15. You can order specific Z Spar mast parts from France through ProTech. Might cost you your first born, but they'll get it shipped in for you.
