Two simple little stainless handles can make such a huge difference:)

Entry to and from the cabin is easier and safer and now skipper and navigator have something to hold onto while underway, especially when the water is not so kind....well I suppose I (skipper) have one hand on the wheel:D

Single hand hold on port side, double on stbd.

The s/s handles come with overlength bolts. A tip for others - the cabin roof is tapered (my eyes didn't pic this, as its only about 5mm), hence the bolts are trimmed to different lengths. I trimmed both bolts to the shortest through length and hence 'just' managed to get a nyloc on the short one (no washer though).

Measure twice.....cut once:hammer

you can never have too many grab rails... Looks good. Did you use 5200 to seal out fluid intrusion from spilled beer?

Sure did Doug. Any new hole made is sealed with sealant.

Very rare to spill a beer though;)

Your grab handles look nice.

Here is a pic of one of many I added. Getting the washers and nuts inside the arch on the upper bolts was difficult. I had many scars.

G'day Mitch

The diesel has been good so far. 230 hours and 2 y.o. in Feb. The only problem I have had was with the starter motor relay (hidden down under the rear of the starter). The power lead corroded up and lost contact, hence could not start up. This was caused by the poor design of the engine bay vents which allowed sea water the spray over the motor. I have since fixed this and also provided better air cooling as a result - see my post in completed projects.

Economy is just over 1nm per metric litre, in good conditions with load. Some more power would be nice when it is flat though.


JimMc - argh, but the scars are worth it:D

Cheers Pete
