Hylas Discussion / Re: Water Leak - Swim Platform - 46
« Last post by bjhsail on March 12, 2018, 12:37:27 AM »
Hi All -
We have Helios (2000 H46 #27), and we're noticing a similar small leak on the inside of the aft bulkhead to the port of the rudder quadrant, where a bolt/screw supporting a bracket for the rudder angle sensor penetrates the bulkhead. Just a slight weeping of water, but clearly coming from below the floor of the aft step compartment.  Merrill or Jim, Were you able to resolve your leak, or determine how to access the area below the floor of the aft step compartment (if possible)? Or have you received any insight from Queen Long?

Hylas Discussion / Domain '' is available
« Last post by Captain Lou Orion on March 11, 2018, 05:13:39 PM »
I was planning to sell Blue Planet eventually before Irma took care of that for me, so I had acquired the domain '' and even built a word press site for it with lots of info on the S&S history, the Queen Long yard and the design of the model.  Just add pics of your own boat when you are ready to sell.  If selling your 47 is in the cards in the future, we can discuss making the domain available to you.  I'd love to pass it on to a 47 owner in this community rather than having some domain hoarder get a hold of it - one of these types tried to sell me for a ransom. Or maybe the Hylas Owners' Association would like to become the gatekeeper for the domain and pass it on from owner to owner as the years go by? I am open to all possibilities.
Hylas Discussion / Non skid
« Last post by SeaGlub on March 09, 2018, 08:58:14 PM »
Ok so for all the things on the boat I can do and help others, one thing I have no experience with, yet, is re-painting or surfacing the decks. We have the diamond pattern non skid and we're beginning to develop raw areas where the under side is showing (fiberglass).  Seems like it's time to consider re-surfacing the decks. How does this work, what do we use, how does the diamond pattern affect the process, I assume we fill in any spider cracks first, do we do the entire deck or just the non skid areas????

Any help appreciated

Hylas Discussion / Spinnaker Pole on a 44?
« Last post by joel on March 05, 2018, 04:57:36 PM »
Does anyone have a spinnaker pole on their boat?  Where is the block for the downhaul?

Our mast is set up for a topping lift, but there is no downhaul setup.

Sorry, no deck plate and no extension.  I hope we never need to use the extension to steer!  It would be like the Mayflower!

Hylas Discussion / Emergency tiller Hylas 44
« Last post by NordicSunII on March 03, 2018, 03:35:47 PM »
does anyone have a picture of the 5 foot extension for the emergency tiller on a hylas 44.  I have the emergency tiller which could be fitted to the top of the rudder shaft.  What I'm missing is the 5 foot extension that goes up through the deck plate.  I'd like to have a new 5 foot extension build but I would like to see one that someone else already has.  I'm also interested how the deck plate hole might be sealed up when the 5 foot extension is used.  Pictures would be really good.
Hylas Discussion / Replacing Cutless bearing on Hylas 44
« Last post by NordicSunII on March 03, 2018, 03:23:47 PM »
Any one have any advice about replacing cutless bearing on Hylas 44.  I know the diameter of my shaft, but how long is the cutless bearing?  Any issues with pulling the shaft out?  Have original westerbeke W70 engine.

I am looking for a later model H49 or shoal-draft 54 located somewhere in the eastern US, gulf coast, or Caribbean.  If anyone is willing to part with their boat, please let me know.
