Hylas Discussion / Re: Refinishing the Saloon and Cockpit Tables

Ken,

That looks amazing. Great job! I love the room you built. You really did that the right way!

I'm in the process of stripping the wood and will have all the parts bare by the end of this weekend. I'm going to varnish the pieces in the garage with heaters on. We won't open the door except to go work on the parts, so effectively a dust free room. But I like your built in shelves a lot!

Thanks for the pics.

Just to close the loop, Mr. Wells made very nice davits; however, he passed away several years ago and the davit business with him.

I believe the rest of the thread is talking about the bigger fixed windows above deck. For the Manship fixed windows on the hull, one of ours started leaking. The leaks were not a defect of the window itself like yours, but I went through the process of removing and rebedding. You will need to pull it out from the outside. The window is installed with a lot of caulk and the screws coming in from outside are thru-bolted on the inside. The inside SS is just a trim plate installed with the screws directly into the wood with no caulk. It is purely decorative. How the window is installed will be obvious as soon as you remove it. Basically, first remove all screws on the inside holding on the the interior trim plate, then remove all screws on the outside. You'll need two people, one inside to unthread the nuts and one outside to man the screwdriver (same with installation). At this point, the window is held in only with caulk. Cut away old caulk and carefully pry it loose with the help of a putty knife. Definitely mask off the outside area so as to not damage the hull.

Ive had the slow start before running normal and high current draw problems on two of my Antal winches, both W52 secondaries.  In both cases it was bad brushes.  The first set of brushes were purchased as Antal spares for ridiculous price. The second set were Bosch 1 007 014 100 Carbon brush, starter which were purchased from Amazon for about $10.00.  Replacing the brushes fixed the problem on both winches immediately.  The Bosch brushes are exactly the same as the overpriced Antal spares.

Hylas Discussion / Replacement hot water tank for Hylas 54 #37?
« Last post by tday01 on January 20, 2023, 04:59:45 AM »
The hot water tank on my 2005 Hylas 54 (hull 37) has sprung a leak. Does anyone know if these are custom fabricated or off the shelf?

The relay for our port winch is accessed by removing the ceiling panel in the aft shower area.
