Oh, and I replace them with the boat in her slip. No problems with a wet install.
They may all be the same thinkness, I don't know. Mine are "R5's" as they are called by the chandlery. They are all the same though... maybe mine is a 1/4 sphere as well.

I see a wet install as doable too, so long as you have something that cures underwater and is proper for the below the waterline, like silicone isn't!

Watch those manatees and alligators when installing... very hazardous!! I don't know how you do that stuff without freaking out. I'd be running up on deck like a little girl. ha ha

The Manatee Bump

The Manatee 'bump' is a bit disconcerting, but it's when gators are lurking between my hulls that things get a bit frisky. I mean it takes so much time to first wrestle these cuddly little creatures and then still have the energy to do the repairs.

4200 cures underwater just fine
