My Y-Valve handle has broken and they don't manufacture it any more. Other then replacing the existing valve does anyone know where I can get a new handle for it?

Just to close that thread. Issue was only mine.
The main (NPC Nordac Radian 7.5) was perfect. Luff length was 37' 9 1/2" that is 2" 1/2 below max class length which is fine for me. (about 1" shorter than your 3Di Jim). 38" is exactly the max I get with my halyard topped out.
After spending more time on this, cleaning up a bit the mast groove, measuring with tack free. it at the ends boils down to this new main being really the first true class legal one I have on this boat.
My prior main was a bit shorter, shorter enough for me to deal with luff tension only with the halyard tension. Not something I can do anymore with this one.

all set. thanks fellows.

If it turns out you have to pull the plugs out of the inside rails, I have some ash laying around as well as plug cutters. Just let me know the size of the plugs and how many

Hi Kellen,
The PM didn't seem to work. If you need a sink drop me a note at ravenracingdoug@gmail.com. I have both the galley sink and the one in the head.

I still have the original Origo pressure alcohol stove. I'll pull it out and test it. As I said above if you'll send me an email I'll send you photos. I'm at: ravenracingdoug@gmail.com Are you after lifelines or the cabintop grabrails? I made up heavier teak cabintop rails...they should clean up fine.

Here's a photo that might match the factory setup for your boat. That is an Origo 4000. Notice the gimbal function takes place in a frame, not directly on the stove.
