    Hi Pete,

    Thanks for your interest in the evaporator. The previous owner said it was working great when he removed it from his ice box because he installed an upright refrigerator. There are no kinks in the copper lines. As you probably know, the newer couplings alone sell for $100. I will go with a selling price of $160 plus shipping costs.

    Hello Bellinghamster,

    I came across one of your comments from last year regarding the Transpac 49 for sale in Seattle. I recently went to look at this boat and immediately noticed the deck issues. Being a handy person I figured I could take on this project on myself. I was about to put in an offer just before i came across the thread.

    Was hoping you could enlighten me further on the extent work that this boat needs before I put in an offer in.

    Good morning, The seacock is yours if you want it. I'm good with you picking it up in person but we are in the southern part of the state on the Columbia River.

    My sincere apologies for the long time to get back to you.
    The tankage was all steel including the black water, and as you mentioned easy access beneath the cabin sole which was teak and holly. We redid the teak deck, replaced the plywood sections which were rotted and never looked back! The center cockpit was roomy and safe. We cruised her to Mexico several times from San Diego Got the sh*t scared out of us north of Cedros Island when I waited too long to reef the main. We had a Mk1 which was a non-cored glass hull and very strong. I put in one through hull and the hull was over 2 thick at the turn of the bilge. I believe the difference between the Mk1 and later models was the aft window configuration but other than that much the same vessel. I would certainly recommend her for a family or couple to cruise aboard. We lived aboard her in San Diego then moved aboard a DeFever 54 after our last trip to Mexico. Hope this belated note helps you in your decision making.
