The pic you posted that shows the head sink shows the oem switch for the shower sump. The switch is to the right of the head sink access. It may also state that. That switch on  the head / nav wall was  all owner installed for what-ever. Good luck

Interesting,  but with the exception of the first pic I don't think the rest are a 34.
Not a really big deal.



ATN TOPCLIMBER Sailboat mast climber.

I bought this to climb the mast of our sailboat without assistance.
I last used it summer of 2022. Recently sold our sailboat and don't
have a need for it. Easy to use and functions great.


Shipping $20.75 lower 48 states only


Prestolite Leece-Neville Alternator

Model 8MR2069TA

I purchased this a few years back through ASE Supply inc. in Portland OR.
I recently sold the boat and never installed it.


Includes shipping to lower 48 States and DC.[/size]

When I enlarge you pic I see the edges and the areas that are worn out. I believe that most canvas shops would agree that spending $500-1000 is not worth it based on stability of remaining material.

My two cents, good luck.

On our tall rig the 50' is from water line to mast head. 119' is correct length for main halyard.  Good luck

Assuming you have the space in your battery location the proper orientation for the battery cells are to have them running port to starboard, not bow to stern. This will help minimize the plates being uncovered.

Good luck,

Bob, makes our tanks. CD resells them. At the Ronco site it will have the dimensions for the B179 tank or for 400 others. Additionally they will make it for you with all inlet, outlet or vent ports where you want them.

Good luck,

The crack above the strut will show as as a half circle. When the strut is installed it is adjusted and aligned with the shaft. The bolts are completed and the area is then filled in. Ive seen this from pics  from the factory.

I had this crack when I purchased Clarity in 2007. I ground out a slight "V"  in the area and all is well. MY STRUT WAS NOT LOOSE.

The curved track should not be an issue, Garhauer has a number that should work. One example from their site.

Good luck,

My original seacock is/was 3/4" the macerator is one inch. I had a real short haul (boat in slings, but still in well, raised just enough to get thru hull out of water) and I took 10 minutes to replace.

As I understand Cliff's question it had to do with the head intake water line. That should be a direct line from the thru hull to the head, with no vented loop.
The vented loop should be between the pump and the bowl. This is based on my setup per the instructions in my Raritan and other head manuals.
