Thank you so much, that is really very helpful. Still waiting for the new hose to arrive, before I start this project.

Hylas Discussion / Re: LPG hose replacement on Hylas 46

I was on my H46 last weekend and checked out our LPG hose installation with this post in mind.  The hose is routed from the propane locker (starboard, aft) and passes through the stbd side cabinet in the main cabin.  It's accessible if you remove the drawers.  From there, its passes through the galley bulkhead and is routed behind the galley cabinets, to exit below the counter near the stove.  I estimate the total length of mine to be between 6-8 feet.   It's copper, and excess is coiled in the aft cabin cabinet.  I believe you could use reinforced rubber LPG certified hose as well.  One caveat:  my stove is in a non-standard location at the aft end of the galley, right next to the trash bin.  In the standard stove location at the forward end, and forward of the reefer/freezer, you would have to adjust the length to accommodate the additional distance. 

Please let us know how it goes!

Interested to read how your project goes as I will need to do the same around my refrigerator doors when I get back to civilization. Post photos!

I will keep you all posted.  I ordered a router sled and plan to use it to route out the panel on the fridge doors, leaving the outside trim intact, then replacing only the inner panel.  If that fails, I will have to pull off the trim and replace it as well.

Not sure yet how to approach any non-removable vertical surfaces, including the area around reefer/freezer doors.

BTW, Queen Long kindly shipped the 4x8 ft sheet of veneer on one of their H70 deliveries to Port Everglades, Florida.  So I only had to pay shipping from there to Maine.

Thanks for all you do on the site. I do have one minor gripe...maybe it's just a setting I can change? I like reading forum threads where the newest post is at the bottom and the oldest is at the top. But in here, it's opposite, with the newest post on top. Of course this is just a personal preference thing, but I definitely prefer the "traditional" order of posts within a thread.

Hylas Discussion / Re: Dripless shaft seal for HYLAS 49

Update:

I am in Panama getting my PSS seal replaced. It was originally going to be a 2 - 4 hour job. It has turned into a major project where they have fabricated supports to hold the generator and removed the hot water heater to get access to replace the seal..

Hope it gets finished today.

Due to a water leak on the aft starboard fairlead, the 2 panels (one vertical and one horizontal) around the port light (aft cabin) were damaged. I did not personally do the work but using refinished veneer panels from QL, the panel with the port light was fully removed and replaced. The shelf was also completely removed and replaced. Without knowing, it would be difficult to see that it was nt factory work. Work was done in Antigua.

Hylas Discussion / Hylas 49 wanted
« Last post by jwilkins on January 30, 2024, 11:40:04 AM »
My wife and I are recently retired and looking to purchase a Hylas 49 to begin a 4 to 6 year adventure.  We are from Portland Oregon and currently crew on a Hylas 42 that finished a circumnavigation 12 years ago.  We are willing to travel for the right boat.

Best regards,

He just stuck it on top of the original.  But it was mainly the flat shelf section surrounded by the fiddles so creating extra thickness did not matter.  Not sure stick on top would work on your fridge faces.
