Behind the area where the original radar would have sat? Yes alot of wires. Doesn't look like it would fit. It has two rubber dampening pads plus a threaded knob lock. Seems like it would sit horizontal. A true mystery.

Re: mildew / mold in cabinets on white fabric liner

Ours were kind of rough when we bought Adagio, and it took some experimenting before I found a good option.  I say 'good' but it's still a.fair amount of work.
Folex brand stain and mildew remover was the first assault.  Spray it on heavily, let it soak for several (10-15) minutes then scrub with a bristle brush.  
Next, I use a "Green Machine" miniature carpet cleaner with a mix of pet stain/odor removing carpet shampoo and hot water. Using this, I soak, scrub and wet-vac until it looks pretty good.
Finally, I again used the Green Machine with water and about 3%-5% bleach and it really made it look nice.  
I did only a couple of cabinets at a time so I could use portable fans to make sure they dried out nice and quickly.

I was worried that all this chemical attacking would possibly loosen the adhesive, but so far so good after about 5 years.

Generally, we leave cabinet doors open if it's reasonably do-able just to keep some airflow going.  

It's a tough scenario with such a tight boat.  Good problem to have, actually :).

The piece of wood is not finished for show (like cabinet doors). Utility piece I believe.

Re: mildew / mold in cabinets on white fabric liner

 


Jarek,

That fabric is made from a synthetic yarn named Draylon. Draylon is an acrylic fiber. These fibers will not attract mold, but when dust accumulates on the fibers, mold can adhere to the dust. The cabinets should be vacuumed on an annual basis.

I have successfully used a product called MicroBan (https://www.microban.com) to kill mold and mildew. It will take 2 applications and about 2 weeks. Once that is done, you should vigorously vacuum the fabric to remove any residue. Once that is complete, if you still see signs of staining, you may want to shampoo the fabric with water and mild liquid soap (a weak mixture). Rinse using a sponge...then use a wet vac to remove as much moisture as possible. Getting all of the moisture out as soon as possible is very important...use fans to dry the fabric completely and leave the doors open for a week to ensure the fabric is dry.

You will find that this fabric is very durable and the fiber used to make this fabric is the best in the world.

I hope this helps you.

Best,

Hi Jarek, 

Sorry to hear of your mould . We had some on our alcantara covers  and Judy scrubbed with a nail brush and a VERY weak solution of vinegar and bleach ( clorox ) . 
When clean again she treated with Scotchguard
When leaving the boat in humid places Judy wiped down the alcantara with a very weak solution of vinegar and bleach 
There are rarely more than two of us on board and the alcantara is in good condition after 19 years 

Hope that helps

Hi Paul , 
We had excellent service from those riggers 2 years ago . 
They rerigged us but I would look to Amel to service the furlers.

PS if Amel suggest for a moment that you use the Volvo agent TPS in Hyeres ( I don’t think they now would )  then contact me first

Re: Greek Cruising Tax

Good advice, Craig,
We carried a state boater safety license with us as well.  As you noted, they are easy to obtain and look nice and official--plastic with your name AND a number.  It was asked for, examined once in Greece, 3 times in Italy (when we obtained the silly "Constitutos") and in Tivat, Montenegro where the harbourmaster scrutinized it for a number which was duly recorded.  I think Tunisia also asked and accepted it as evidence that I was the skipper.   It was not requested at all in Croatia which has an online reputation for demanding a license (we entered in Cavtat) .

Related--in the US, we brought our passports into Staples and had them reduce and color copy the first 2 pages down to wallet size.  Then they laminated and we carried in our wallets.  It allowed us to frequently leave our passports in our safe.  Always worked for cell phone sims, hotels, rail passes, deposits for audio guides, etc.  What we did not expect was that many government officials accepted them as official IDs!  Insist on a thicker thermal lamination, not the thinner adhesive lamination plastic.
