My IP family, I would love to hear from anyone that knows of reasonable priced 420 or 440, thank you very much.
yes, I could not confirm.
Please go to the facebook group and request again. I will add you.
Thanks for confirming.
Hi Hayden, I have requested joining the Fb group but suspect you won't be able to verify me! I use the name Thelma Lives (it's a family thing).
We are looking for ideas where to attach the tack of our cruising chute. Is the pulpit strong enough? Is it far enough forward? We have built a prototype sprit which sits between the bow rollers but it will cost a fortune to have made properly, a price we will pay if there is no other option. Would love to know how others have solved this problem.
Do you have a source for the gotext packing ? I assume it will be the same for my IP37
An old thread, but for others down the road, I have had great luck with US Boat Haulers. usboathaulers.com/
This is a one man operation and Ernst has a terrific rig and great attitude. He can arrange everything on either side or both and stays true to his word and knows sailboats as a sailor himself. He used to be local to Texas, but I believe he is now based out of Florida. Prices are good and he does not hit you with overages like others. We used him a couple years ago to move a Cape Dory from the coast to a lake and will use him again to move the Cape Dory back to the coast to sell it. Going into the lake required some creative thinking and he did it and for what he agreed to do it for, even though the job took a day longer and helped re-commission the boat a week later when the pieces of the rigging that the boat yard rigger broke came in.
The prices through Island Packet direct on the website are pretty good. We are switching to the chromed ones and still trying to find a better deal than IP, but have not yet.
Remember, if you are on Facebook, you can request to join our Island Packet Yacht Owners group. This Facebook group is a closed group meaning it is not viewable to the public.
You click join, and then Radeen or I will look at your request and if we can determine you are an IP sailor, or friend, then we will add you to the group.
We have 337 members at this time and the group is active with sharing and posting topics aND photos. Join in.

Hi guys as per usual I need info when I am not near the boat. All our sink plugs are starting to perish and are past their best. She who must be obeyed would like them all changed. My problem is twofold, I did not check the size before leaving the boat and as we are out here in Greece everything is metric. I have a work mate from the states who will pick some up for me but I need to know the sizes. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance
Thanks for the offer and all of your help. I've put the order for the new version in now and hopefully will receive it in a few days - meaning we can finally get off for some cruising around menorca.
I'm going to change to the newer version - I think there must be some sort of supply problem in Europe for the old version.
What do you recommend as a reducer - it seems there are quite a few options - grp, brass, silicone, stainless ?
The old version shaped like a U is usually available. This is the once that clogs up after a few years.
Old Style Yanmar Mixing Elbow Part #7 Yanmar Part # 129198-13500 ELBOW, MIXING, about $200
The newer on is SQUARE and usually never needs changed out:
New Style Yanmar Mixing Elbow Parth #15 Yanmar Part #129470-13541 ELBOW, WATER MIXING, about $900
