I went with the same Harken as well. Ready to install!
The bottom line is whether it made a big difference to you

i have decided to replace my harken with a new one when  I do new standing rigging this winter.
trying to decide between Mark IV vs Esp...both unit #1
I wonder what others have done?
I have the tall rig and I said with a 150-155 head sail
Also where folks have purchased the units.

lots of interesting approaches
yes I had this before and put some flex sealer
Its a hairline crack about 8 inches back on front and both sides
I do have a fin keel.

I talked to Warren Pandy about it and he simply suggested that I create a v-shaped channel and fill it with West epoxy flex and check tightness of keel bolts.

The Catalina Smile is back  :D . I have seen some discussion about this over the years.  What is the best way to handle?  I am reluctant to start grinding out any part of the keep and perhaps this is just a surface impurity.  What is your thinking on this.  (Video available but too large to post in the forum).

i am replacing my old Isotherm holding plate system which was never very reliable anyway; the condenser is shot. What is the size  in cubic feet of box? Mine is a 1990 boat. what system do people like and find reliable. I would love not to have to replumb the copper lines...and just replace the condenser

i installed a maxwell unit in the anchor locker, horozontal to the cut out in the box. Looks beautiful and no deck fuss. in the foward berth, its all in front of the teak. Will at Maxwell is amazingly helpful; the best i have ever dealt with in this industry. I got a VW 10.

I got the VW 10 not sure if the 10-10 or the 10-8 but I will check.
anyway I installed it horizontally in the anchor locker with the gears and motor in the area between the exterior of the locker and the veneer...plenty of room there. I have pics is anyone wishes.

i installed a new Maxwell Windlass in the anchor locker and now I am ready to wire it; would the 2 big AWG 1 cables run under the sole or is their an easier way to get them to the battery box ?
