Hello Bill, hello to all interested in the manifold for a 54
by coincidence we spent some weeks in La Rochelle. I decided to order the manifold in the Sofomarine shop directly. Taking this opportunity the people of Sofomarine asked for a visit aboard of Mago del Sur because they made the design of the manifold by photos only. After some measurements Nicolas designed a more compact version of the manifold. The left hand part with the three valves of this version now fits in between the cockpit drain and the plywood stringer portside to it. Photos of this version attached.
I should add that there is an option to fit one valve more at the portside end of the manifold. I think this is possible in Bills version too.
The straight nozzles instead of the angled nozzles are fitted according to my wish.
