Hylas Discussion / Rudder skeg
« Last post by Ripple on February 19, 2018, 12:48:45 AM »
After three years of occasionally searching I found the source of a small trickle of water from what I consider a highly improbable area...the area where the front of the rudder skeg is attached to the hull. How could a leak be there? The rudder stock area is dry. Maybe a void in the fiberglass mound at the rudder stock is somehow allowing water to migrate to an area about 16 inches forward? Any theory is welcome.

I have H46 #38 how much you asking for this main?
Here are pictures of the V berth and cockpit cushions.  I have more pics which I could send by email.

For a H49 the cushions will fit size wise but the two aft side cushions will need to be trimmed in a bit to accommodate your cut out around the helm.

Captain Lou Orion,
We will be driving to Fort Lauderdale at the end of the month. Are you able to post pictures of the cushions you have? We have a Hylas 49.

Experienced Hylas Yachts / H47/H49/H46 set of sails in excellent conditions

I still have a main, furling staysail and genoa from Blue Planet cluttering up my place in Fort Lauderdale.  These were used only two seasons and were offshore grade and professionally maintained.

Now is the time to find a new owner for them and do a win win transaction, or else I will place them in consignment and we'll both pay the middle man.

I expect the sails will also work with minor adjustments for a H46, which has a mast height just a foot shorter than the H47.

Please contact me for details and specs.  Happy spring sailing or refitting.

Experienced Hylas Yachts / Hylas 47/49 bronze strut vailable, new
« Last post by Captain Lou Orion on February 14, 2018, 10:15:16 PM »

The shaft strut was pitted on my H47 Blue Planet and I had planned to replace it at the next haul out, so last year I acquired a new bronze casting from Queen Long who had one in stock, for $1200.  The same casting is used for both H47 and H49.

I have it from a very reliable source that the molds for H49 have been destroyed and the boat will no longer be made.  So I expect this replacement casting will be harder to get a hold of in future.

Irma took my boat but I have this casting in Ft Lauderdale along with all the nuts and bolts for it. The cutless bearing is already in it.  Of course it would make a nice anchor for a mooring ball, but I would rather find a new owner for it, as I am sure someone in the community will need this hard to find item at some point.

Price negotiable. Let me know if this is of interest, or please pass on to fellow owners, and thanks.

Salvaged from my Hylas 47 lost in Irma in St John VI were:

- A set of almost new V berth cushions, sunbrella navigation wheat color over 4" new foam

- A set of almost new cockpit cushions, sunbrella baycrest sky over 3" stay dry foam

I have these in Fort Lauderdale now and I need to pass them on to a new owner soon.

So if you are looking to refresh your cockpit and/or V berth, here is your chance.  Price negotiable. These will work for Stevens 47, H 47 and H49.

Happy sailing, refitting or whatever.

My Starboard Simpson Davit is toast.  Anyone by any chance have one they want to unload?  Or if you need a good condition Port one we can do a deal.  If not its getting a new series 10 pair from the UK for 7,000 USD.

Hylas Discussion / Re: Leaking stanchion bases
« Last post by joel on February 05, 2018, 08:49:11 PM »
Besides stanchions, I found two other sources of leaks -First, the bolts holding the hinge for  the boarding ladder were leaking.

Second, there is a hole drilled under the teak deck step for the toe rail that has no bolt.   I only found it by looking for leaks on a rainy day with a bright light.   I'm going to try to epoxy it from below.  I don't want to break the teak trying to remove it to fill the hole from above.

Thank you so much for all of the info. Although we did not have anything pre-plumbed, with your help I believe I can muddle through this now. Thank you again so much for all of your time in putting this info together for us 49 owners!

I will also be installing a scuba compressor (Brownies YP-25) in the lazerette and will let everyone know how that project goes in the future.

Fair Winds,
