I have limited internet until I connect to some plan in Italy. Will probably do a video on how I went about designing and making the Bimini, I have 6ft clearance under it.
I bent my 30kg Wasi stainless steel anchor pulling it from a rock, the windlass on the 54 is strong. Phoned the manufacturer in Germany then straightened it using oxy torches and a big vice. Put the video on YouTube, only one on YouTube showing how to straighten a bent boat anchor.
I have changed my A/C pump from the original. Amel Hyeres could not supply the original and are now very interested to see how it works. I got a Marsh magnetic pump from Florida, silent, half the size and half the price of the original - no drive shaft. Pumps a little more per hour than the original.
