Hylas Discussion / "Lamp" push button drawer latches...
« Last post by Windswept on February 26, 2022, 09:58:26 PM »
Hello Members....I'm looking for the Lamp push button drawer latches. If I'm not mistaken....about a year ago, I google searched those latches and did not find a problem finding them. Needless to say, sure can not find them now. Would anyone have a link to them or there where abouts? Thank you in advance.

Hi,  Our H44, Velella, is for sale in MX.

It's priced pretty high for an H44 due to the extensive upgrades/remodel - several hundred K of new stuff.  It's ready to sail around the world if that's your goal.  We were going to FP this year, but I was injured and my kids just got too big for a 44ft boat.  Non-renovated H44s have serious electrical issues.  Velella has a new panel and 80-90% new wiring (and still going).

Something to keep an eye out for as you get near to purchase is a boat owned by an LLC. We bought our 2009 46 in San Diego but it was the sole asset of an LLC. California doesn

Michelle, thanks for the kind welcome, and for the advice.

I'm excited to hear about your adventure! I absolutely love the sea of Cortez, truly an enchanted place. I made the passage from Cabo to Nuku Hiva when I was a youngster aboard my parents' boat in the 80s. Pulling the Marquesas out of the wide ocean was the most spectacular landfall I can imagine.

Amy and I are assuming we will need to do a substantial refit after purchasing our boat so any advice that adds $$ to that budget is welcome. In the past couple of years since we started looking at what's available, we have seen some boats come up for sale over the past few years in the Caribbean, Mexico and even in the S. Pacific. I wonder though, about the logistics of documenting a vessel purchased outside of the U.S.--something we'll have to research.

Welcome! I love that you've put this out there. We have a 2002 46' and she is a dream. We have been living aboard for 6 years and cruising since Nov 2020. We're currently in La Paz, Mexico and are looking forward to French Polynesia and onward this spring. (Dave Powers in California is an amazing broker.) We wish we would have purchased off-shore, instead of California-- you save a ton in taxes if you do. (Enough for new solar, full lithium battery packages, and a new generator!)

Gato,  I went through this last year on my 46.  Honestly it really does not matter.  The engine water loops directly through and out the heat exchanger, there are no check valves or traps to be concerned about flow direction.

If you want to align with general practice they typically put the engine output on the lowest port of the heat exchanger on the water tank.  This will come from the water pump flange on the top front of your engine be it the Yanmar 4JH2-TE as in Nirvana or most other engines.
