There is a leather upholstery gentleman near vista mar in Panama. He does surprisingly good work at a very reasonable price. We got steering wheel and new seat etc for 200us. 

After that then dinghy cover, winch covers etc.

Hi Tom
We replaced ours with a kit from these guys

You just need to measure your wheel as they show and order whatever colour you want.
The kit comes with everything you need and instructions to sew it on.
It is a slow job believe me, but worth it in the end.
Good luck.

Spinnaker Pole Strut Support

Roger Wilson
 

On my Sharki 127 I have the usual stainless tubing support for the strut for the spinnaker pole. The support has a clamp assembly (6 fasteners) on the cap shroud and hides a 120mm length of wire.  The spport crimps onto the lowers with just one fastener.
I am curious if an owner has experienced a corrosion problem on the cap shroud where it it hidden within the support clamp assembly.  This is a place to collect dirt and must be disassembled for inspection.

After several years of appearing “fashionably distressed”, our original wheel leather now just looks distressed. Does anyone have any tips for replacing this? Where might I get leather that would fit, or be fitted? Any shared experiences would be much valued.

Hi,
Yesterday I saw SY Phantom in Jabin's  Yacht Yard in Annapolis. If the owner is on this forum or if someone knows him, I would like to get in touch and discuss his experience with the watt&sea generator that the boat has installed.

Re: Poor Anchor Chain Maintenance

Duane Siegfri
 

James,

The galvanizer I used said they would have to sandblast if there was paint on it, and they would have an extra charge.  I would regalvanize every time if I could, I think my cost was about $250 if my memory serves.  The last treatment lasted for 3 years (where we were anchored 75% of the time), but now needs attention.

Ok Hans, I understand now, I have just completed the bottom maintenance on my 55 and certainly didn’t see any such crack or signs of a such a thing

Best of luck and of course hope it’s only in the gel coat layer.

Re: Poor Anchor Chain Maintenance

James Sterling
 

I haven't heard anything on temp affecting strength but it's a conceivable issue.  I've also had mixed reviews on re-galvanizing. My chain as you can see was beyond help.  Some shops also balk if the chain has been paint marked for depth.

Hi Oliver,
I had a look at the Optibelt website  and it certainly looks very promising. I will buy a couple of pairs and we can put it to the test.

Some lawnmower belts do that.

No experiance for now, need to relaunch in few days after this refit.

I have a 175A 24v alternator on my 54. With twin pulley v belts.
It is the set up with the alternator to port and separate from the 12v alternator and raw water pump  belt. I know some 54’s are set up with the alternator to starboard and run off the same belt as the 12v and pump belt. Not my Amelia.
I am disappointed with the life I am getting from a matched pair, only about 100 hours. I tried to get the green stripe quality in the UK and was sold some blue belt.
The pulley grooves are for 15mm or maybe 16mm,  so that they do not bottom out. That is, so the sides of the belt grip the pulley. Which is what I used.
I have now put a pair of belts that the previous owner bought which are 13mm, but a matched pair (so it is bottoming out) as an experiment, to see how they perform.
Does anyone with my twin belt set up, recommend any particular brand and size/specs?
It would be nice to find a brand that does not shed dust and that lasts for 300 hours or more!
