Ahoy! Happy Holidays, everyone!

This passage will run through Christmas. Hoping some intrepid Hylas sailor will join me on this passage which I have made many times.

Weather delays, crew member leaving.
Experienced professional captain needs to immediately replace a crew member who has to leave to be home for Christmas.

Sorry about the short notice:
Need to get to Norfolk this Friday 12/13...could depart Saturday 12/14 on fully equipped boat with three other experienced sailors.

No per diem but food and airfare are coveref, up to $700 maximum.

Please email me at jim0123r (dont forget the r) at gmail dot com.
Hylas Discussion / Hylas 54 dishwasher repair
« Last post by tulsag on December 09, 2019, 03:09:29 PM »
We have the originally installed Vesta dishwasher and I need a new drain pump in it.  Has anyone removed one of these before?  I can't figure out how to get it out!  The bottom wood piece that stops the unit from sliding out is BOLTED and inaccessible! The rubber feet on the dishwasher can't get over the bottom trim piece even after removing the top trim piece.

Hylas Discussion / Anyone done a transatlantic on a 44?
« Last post by joel on December 05, 2019, 06:56:10 PM »
Although it would not happen for 4-5 years, I'm considering planning a trans Atlantic crossing so we can cruise a portion of the Med. 

Has anyone done this in a 44?  Am I nuts?

Anything out of the ordinary that made the trip easier?  We have a staysail, raft, EPIRB, sat phone (which will be upgraded by then) etc.

Sorry to see you go but happy to help if I can, I repeatedly get asked where someone can get a boat like mine so I'll pass the word.  Please send specs to seaglub at gmail dot com
Experienced Hylas Yachts / 1996 Hylas 46, "Kokopelli"

We're putting our beloved Kokopelli up for sale.  A very sad day for us. 
She's heavily set up and equipment for long-distance, long-term cruising.  Ideal for a couple.  She has everything, plus a spare.  In-boom furling, added forestay and drifter, etc.  1000 watts of solar.  She's a shoal-draft 46, draws 5'-6".  Currently located in Hawaii, we'll be bringing her to the west coast in the spring to continue cruising there, if she doesn't sell first.  Complete list of specs, equipment, etc. available on request.  $295,000.

Thanks in advance.

I believe it is bolted on, not encapsulated.  It is an easy repair with Gflex or something similar.
