Love my Vesper 8000 unit, especially because it gives me essentially a backup multifunction display when I pair it with my iPad.  Since the Vesper has its own GPS unit, my Raymarine Axiom MFD could go out and I still have a full back up with electronic charting on the iPad.  Lots of good uses for the unit.

Thanks Tony, I will definitely be messaging you for some input when I get ready to service the motor soon.  Right now I've got a nice brown goo oozing out from where the winch handle goes in so I suspect the seals have been compromised and water is mixing with the grease still in the case!  Oh joy!


Best,


Dan

Hylas Discussion / Re: Keel attachment H44, nuts on studs in the keel, or bolts ?
« Last post by Panama Red on October 30, 2020, 01:33:42 PM »
On my 44, forward and aft bolts have nuts that are not resin covered.  When doing a bottom paint job, I did not see any evidence of epoxy plugs on the keel.

Maybe the keel bolts need to be tightened.  Is there water in the bilge?

Hi Dan,

I did this early in the year. Happy to answer questions or supply photos. DM with request or if you want to call. Was pretty straight-forward, if a bit messy with the grease on the kitchen table (leading to spousal complaints).

I have been asked by another owner to provide details on our liquor redesign. Please see link below for design notes and pictures, including a short video showing movement in the cabinet during moderate sailing conditions.
