We were looking for a H44 for our circumnavigation...when we ran across our H46 #028. I would have no hesitation sailing with a H44, none what so ever! ;)

Hylas Discussion / heart Interface 2000
« Last post by Knoxan on December 12, 2019, 05:47:39 PM »
I inherited with True Brew a Freedom 25 charger/inverter 1999 vintage with a link 2000 interface.
Like many people my link 2000 has failed and no replacement can be found. It is easy enough to get a suitable replacement battery monitor - there are numerous choices on the market- however I am more concerned with being able to 1. remotely switch charging and inverter functions on/off and 2. being able to set the charging parameters ie battery type and capacity. There are various xantrex remote control panels out there but I can't find out which may work with this vintage of Freedom 25. I have asked xantrex on several occasions but they just can't be bothered to give advice.
Does anyone have any experience of suitable remote control?

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.

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
