Re: Bomar lens replacement 16 1/2 square

Just following my post I was able to remove the lens without removing the frame! Simple, the inside gasket gently pulls out of the frame. From outside using a razor knife without scratching the frame cut the caulking that held the lens in. The broken lens has been removed. Now to find a local source...

Bomar lens replacement 16 1/2 square

As happens I overreached and rolled head first into the port forward hold. Other than my pride the only damage is to the hatch lens which needs to be replaced. The two hinges consist of 8 screws on the hull side. The 4 nut and bolt have been removed with some patience. The remaining 4 screws are so ...

Deck cap WASTE

Well it had to happen, the pump out crew dropped the cap. The cap on the PDQ has a finished diameter of 1 7/8 which the local West Marine does not have, and the few inquiries I have made reflect the 1 7/8 is an odd size.
Any suggestions?
I can use the 1 1/2 cap but I would like the correct cap.

I installed a Lewmar V1 (vertical) on MIDORI and I am happy with that. However, the horizontal may be more flexible. I ran the wires to the forward port hold and mounted the electrical on the bulkhead. The wiring for the windlass is to the start battery on the basis that the engines will be running ...
