Are the wooden slots in the stern/quarter berths for structure or for looks? Majority of my wooden slots are rotted around the screws and showing black rot. Wondering if I should remove them and just fiberglass or epoxy the holes?

Martec is still servicing props and from time to time may have a refurbished prop available. If your prop is not too bad contact them to have it refurbished.

www.martec-props.com, click on Eliptec propeller, and then click on refurbishing a prop.

That looks very similar to my spinnaker pole, let me take some measurements of the piston and hook diameters and I'll get back to you. Thanks!

Thanks B.
more pics can not hurt, but I am not sure it will give me more info than what Rob's photos showed.
The two open questions really are:
* is the engine setup similar on the v2 of the J/30 (~1984 coaming, bigger cockpit - and bigger 1" propeller shaft).
* how much drop-in is the replacement when you go with the full package (2YM15+KM2P-1).
And picture might not be as helpful (considering of the so many dimension fits involved) than knowing someone that actually did it. But I am already greatfull for the feedback so far... At some point I have to go for it and see how it goes... :-)

You might want to include a photo of your current setup so we could give you the simplest fix, if that's what you're looking for.

I moved the turning blocks and cleats for my traveler so that I can use the full width of the traveler, added more purchase and used a single line so that we can trip the low side cleat after a tack.

I've improved small aspects of the system since first install (these photos), but am happy with it overall.
