Hylas Discussion / Re: Removing galley sink / replacement

Comtemplating sink issue here. We have the engine out....so I know exactly how much clearance between the engine and the sink/box is ....Real PITA with the deep sink. On top of that the existing sink is top set...another PITA due to the lip and cleaning issues. My plan (sink is out at the moment) find a single bowl sink (less depth) then router the existing sink hole flange down, so  new sink sits flush with existing counter top. Now, using new 3/8 Corian glue to existing counter without removing fiddles. Needless to say, I'm trying not to remove fiddles.

After completion, just raising the finish counter the 3/8 I will still have enough fiddle heigth to keep items within fiddles. I plan on replicating the other side of the Island.

Regarding the box... my plan is just remove the bottom ply, cut the sides down, construct a new bottom, & insulate.

At completion.... I'll have an under mount sink, one drain, (Yea) and more space in the engine bay.

If anyone has more options finding a new sink....sure would be appreciated!

Would there be any difference in a Bacon sail and a Quantum sail. We need new sails as well....and did get a proposal form Quantum last fall at the Richmond show. Pricey!

Hylas Discussion / Re: H49 Rudder Bushing Replacement
« Last post by jklarason on February 23, 2019, 03:34:27 AM »
Well Ripple I can state that the stuffing box on Hull#3 is some what like your drawing absent the Plastic Bushing. Since my posting I have heard from QL that there is no bronze bushing at the base of the post. The base is SS pin on SS post. As for the stuffing box it is three layers of flax packing in compression. So my remaining question is how to true the hole in the bottom of the post given the limited space....

If your rudder stuffing box looks like the attached drawing, I may have some helpful insight. JR

Hylas Discussion / H49 Rudder Bushing Replacement
« Last post by jklarason on February 21, 2019, 11:28:41 PM »
1993 H49 Hull #3 and the upper and lower bushings need replacement. Excessive lateral rudder post movement has caused excessive leaking from the rudder post stuffing box. I am aware of all that is involved in removing the rudder. I need information regarding the lower pivot pin and bushing. QL does not have specific records on Hull#3 and so there is a question as to whether or not there is a bronze bushing at the bottom of the rudder post. We know the post is 62.5mm diameter stainless and we also know the pivot pin which is bolted to the bronze skeg shoe is 30mm dia SS. What is not yet known is whether there is a bronze bushing inserted into the bottom of the rudder post. As my boat is still in the water on passage and I would like to have parts delivered in advance of hauling... So here is the question, can any H49 owner tell me if there is a bronze bushing visable at the base of their rudder post ??  A photo would be so wonderful as it would allow me to more directly communicate with Vincent at QL.

Kindred does have a single bowl model that will work, as do Elkay and Blanco.  Kindred seems to be sold only in Canada.

We are contemplating going with quartz for a different look.

Also, we can have a custom stainless sink built to the original specs for a couple hundred dollars more.

Thanks for the advice!

Our current double sink is a "Steel Queen" model manufactured by Kindred. Maybe they have some suitably deep options.

One option is to switch to undermount style where exact fit isn't critical. It could open you up to a bunch of options from various manufacturers. We selected a Hahn for a replacement (single basin), but they have 10" deep double basins.

Hylas provided me with info on the original sink.  It was a Polar 102-1.  It is no longer made.

I've looked on-line but can't find one, so I am looking at options.  There are single bowl sinks that are just as deep, but I have not found a double bowl sink that deep that fits.

Info is:
Brand: Polar
Model: 102-1
Length: 25"
Width: 17"
Individual bowl size: 10" x 14"
Depth: 9-3/4", Drain: 3-1/2" in center of bowls
Cutout size: 23-5/8" x 15-5/8"
Self-Rimming-Heavy Duty
Extra deep
