Not everyone has a great passage. You dont get strong winds, what you
do get is light to no wind with the normal trade wind swell. Makes
for very unconfortable conditions. We are in NZ. Will stay here for a
few years. Thanks for the info on the strap.
Where are you.

strap caused my manifold failure, I had one made in stainless in StMartin
for $300- US. I plan to install it next week. It looks like asimple job.
The only thing that was rotted in the manifold was the A/C pumptap. . It
looked like Swiss cheese when I cleaned it up. I would check it.A/c, no
watermaker, and no salt water flush on the heads. We used theshower.

of boat speed but it steadied the boat and virtually stopped theOa
