Two questions


Germain Jean-Pierre
 

Hello Gang,

Our Eleuthera is powered by a Volvo TMD22. Our rotary start switch on the optional Engine start panel is not functioning correctly. Anybody know where I can procure a replacement?

Second question: the seals on the overhead hatches are beginning to leak. Is there a source for this seal?

Kind regards,

Jean-Pierre Germain, SY Eleuthera, SM007, Opua NZ

Can't help with Q1. Q2: The seals for the hatches are available from most
chandleries. I did ours while in Martinique. The square rubber fits best. It
is sold by the foot or meter from a big spool.



With best regards,

Mark

Hi Mark,

Thanks. I’ll pass by the local chandlery tomorrow.

Cheers

Marinepartseurope has several starter switches listed, I just wouldn't know which one is for your setup.  I did put in a new panel in Martinique (there's a Volvo store there) and I'll guess they could procure the switch as well.

As far as hatch foam is concerned, the replacement I used was actually trapezoidal a bit. I want to say 12mm on the glass side and 10mm where is contacts the ridge of the hatch. 

I too, found it in a roll at a chandlery, but it was about the 12th chandler I'd searched :)

I recently acquired a freezer gasket on Amazon (searched for 'old style refrigerator gasket) and I'm not sure you couldn't order the foam there as well.  We're on anchor at the moment so I don't have much signal and can't really research.

I know there's a company that supplies Goiot hatch parts; they've probably got the gasket material but at a premium.price.   (anyway, that's where I learned the measurements from:) )
