Thanks Jo and Rory - the other one was old and needed upgrading (just like me)!
What is the name of your boat in case I get to sail thru the south side before long??
Cheers
Paul

Aloha and welcome aboard,
Good to have you folks here on the forum and I'm interested in how your boat sails once she is in the water.
regards,

Hi Bewitched (I'd better watch what I say) and skipprjohn, thank you both for your welcome. Just off the slip and now have opp to reply. Loads still to do, but I reckon if I can change out a blakes seacock (), and a seawater impeller, then I can do ANYTHING!! Rene is impatient to get the sails up, but I have to admit, I'm quite enjoying being a grease monkey! I had no idea there were so many colours to choose from, all of which appear impossible to remove from under my fingernails!

We've done a quick tour of the bay and the engine seems ok, couple of adjustments needed but not major stuff - next job electrics? Reckon we'll need a bit of forum support for that - at present it looks like spaghetti junction!

Thanks again for your welcome

Cordialement
Lesley and Rene

Re: Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Hi guys,

Any place in Hong Kong to get some small stainless steel strips - Duplex or Monel- or similar ss that can be submerged in sea water - in length 10' x 3" x 0.5" ?

I checked Rorys excellent document but nothing was mentioned about it.

Re: Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Singleprop, There are some metal shops (as they are called here) in Bedford Road, Tai Kok Tsui, near Mongkok, where we have had some 316 SS fittings fabricated, though generally thinner material. They should be able to supply your needs.
Good luck
Paul
