How were you able to raise it 11" and still use the slot to get the main on the mast.   A pic would be helpful.

Measured today can move the boom up  4-5".  Has anyone done this and a pic would be helpful.  The mainsail would have to be recut.
Thanks, Paul

I would like to raise the boom about 6" so that it would not rub on my bimini and flatten it out more.
Has anyone done this?
Would appreciate any thoughts or ideas.

PS:  Cool Change returned from the North Channel just before Labor Day.  My wife and I spend 2 1/2 months in this wonderful area.

I checked my golf cart batteries last week.  I have 4 golf cart batteries, disconnected all of them.  Checked each cell with a hydrometer and also a volt meter.
Hope this is helpful

Just changed the fuel filter(getting ready for the North Channel)opened the knurled knob and started the pump for a few minutes and waited for the pitch of the fuel pump to change, closed the knob and started the engine.  This was on the hard and sitting all winter.
Just as Stu has described.

Have you looked into having new ones made.  I replaced mine in 2009.  Bought a piece teak 1"x2" x14' 6" and had a milling shop make me new ones.  Used the old as pattern but made the new ones a little wider and thicker to make up for all the years of sanding.
Just a thought.

Thanks Ron.  It was straight forward.  Finished installation this morning.  I believe Ron that I read your post from a few years back.  No sure, because I read a lot of posts.
Appreciate your follow up.

Just a thank you to all of you that have put articles on this forum on how to take out the old and put in the new. There were many articles over the years on this forum.
Read most of them.  Replacing the old water heater(19yrs old) a seaward with a new seaward today.

If you succeed in the first step, make sure that you have a cradle to place the mast on top of the boat.  At least 3 supports.

Thanks, Ron
I spoke with the customer service people of 3 major companies that supply toggle switches, but they were not able to answer my question.  They all advertised it as a LED switch, but it only means it can turn on and off a LED light etc.  Amazon also has the same description.  Our local ACE hardware store carries this switch in the size that I was looking for. (GB Gardner Bender  GSW-48)  West Marine was no help.
Appreciate your expertise.
Note:  The amp hrs was not part of my thinking process.

I have no trouble finding the mini rocker switch with candescent bulb but was looking for one with LED light in the rocker.

Looking for a mini Led rocker switch with the light build in.  This is for my propane on/off switch.  The exterior measures 1/2" x 3/4".  Any help would be appreciated.

No problem finding a mini with a candescent bulb built into the rocker. 

Could you post a pic?
Thanks, Paul

Looked for you in the NC.  Sorry we missed each other.  North Channel is big.
