I found Luther’s welding via market place and am waiting for a quote now. It’s always something on a boat. Dan #409

Has anyone ever replaced the legs for the original table? The previous owner for my hull 395 had some wonky PVC shimmed with duct tape (real, real wonky). Any suggestions on size, material, and length for replacements?

After racing Encounter with the Broad Bay Sailing Association in the Tidewater area of Virginia for eight seasons, we have moved up to a bigger boat and must put her up for sale. She is currently moored at Norfolk Naval Station Marina; able to provide base access for interested parties.

Her maintenance and minor upgrades have kept her "class legal" to the best of my knowledge. Original engine still fires right up. Hauled for a new bottom annually. Recently completed USCGA safety inspection. Mast pulled and standing rigging, VHF antenna, windex, harken foil all replaced in January 2022. North mainsail raced weekly for three seasons, backup main still on hand. Laminate #1 and #3, Dacron #2. Two spinnakers. Two new Lewmar EVO 40ST self-tailers on hand - never installed; can be purchased separately.

Additional Equipment includes:
Lifesling 2
solar vent (2023)
Danforth anchor (2022) and lunch hook
Raymarine ST60 instruments
Raymarine 7" Chartplotter on swivel arm
Icom VHF
Ritchie and Danforth magnetic compasses
4 Winch handles
Salon table

Does anyone have any idea how many yards of fabric would be needed to recover the cushions?

Has anyone seen a shaft strut with this appearance? Looks to be galvanic corrosion, I plan to grind it for a better look, check the inside, and check bonding (I've had the boat 15 years and it appears to be bonded but never checked where this meets the hull from the inside). Any idea where to purchase a replacement?

My PHRF-MA data was all pre-loaded in metric when I signed into their website. I checked a few numbers and the conversion seemed correct. Paid the fee and awaiting my certificate...

I'm not getting power to my engine panel (type B). Battery is reading 12V, but at key switch (off), I'm only getting 0.16V, and zero with the switch on. No buzzer or warning lights. Could this be due to a bad fuse holder as described in prior posts? There appears to be power to my interior switch panel.
