Re: Double bunk for a Westerly 31 Saloon

That is just the info I was looking for. Thanks John.
I had a feeling it was done that way. All I need to do now is source some tube for shorter legs and make a new table, as mine has previously been modified.

Regards

Ian

Re: Double bunk for a Westerly 31 Saloon

I also ran a search Roger, with no real joy.
The Longbow had an option of a lowering table and that is my preference, if I can figure out how it was done.
Pictures of your method would be worth a look please.

Regards

Re: Double bunk for a Westerly 31 Saloon

Thanks Roger, the first option sounds better for me. Where did you see the pictures?
I was hoping that the table could be modified for dual purpose. Any ideas on that?

Re: diesel tank fuel return and alternator wiring problems

Hi Hillary, How lucky you are to have access to a 3D printer and the skills to use it. Following your comment on the "bodged" 3mm fuel return of the Sea Panther I took another look at my installation yesterday. On closer inspection it was indeed the same as you found. However I did notice ...

Re: diesel tank fuel return and alternator wiring problems

What a coincidence Hilary. I to have just fitted a Beta in place of a Sea Panther in my Berwick. Today I linked in the fuel return. As you said it is an 8mm from the Beta. I used a short run of copper tube then linked it to a short length of 8mm (5/16) hose. It took a little warming of the hose to m...

Re: watermota sea panther

You can call any time Mike. Best on the mobile as I am usually out. I can always call you back if required. I went for a 2 blade folding prop. Jolly Roger also recommended it to me and he is a perfectionist. I hope the extra cost is worth it!!!! Just waiting for a new cutlass bearing and carrier to ...

Re: watermota sea panther

Hello Mike, I am currently replacing the Sea Panther in my Berwick with a Beta 30. The prop and shaft are also being replaced. In doing the deals I spoke directly to Beta. They are very helpful and also give a very, very good price. As far as the prop and shaft go they put me onto Paul at Ist Marine...

Re: Westerly Berwick Skeg.

I have a Berwick that lost it's skeg some years ago. They were just screwed into the hull. I made one myself by fabricating a frame with some old bits of hardwood and covered that with hardboard before glassing over the lot. I then glassed it to the hull. It has been fine over the last 5 years and s...

Re: Berwick - where to store dinghy

I have a 2.6 inflatable on my Berwick. It lives at the aft end of the starboard quarter-berth. It is first put into a very large, strong plastic bag to stop any moisture from coming into contact with the upholstery and it also makes it slide in and out easily.

Re: Re-bedding Pageant Keels

Having re-sealed the keel on my Berwick last winter, I can highly recommend Nitoseal 600. http://www.fosroc.com/product/show/nitoseal-ms600 It is a single pack but does require a primer. Being an industrial product that is also used on reservoirs you can be sure of a first class and lasting result. ...

Re: Who is attending the Jubilee Celebrations in Portsmouth?

I went. :roll:

I have ordered a Beta 30 with 2.6:1 gearbox and a folding prop. All to be fitted to Purejoy over the winter lay up.
Obviously I am not selling her now.

Re: watermota sea panther

I too am replacing my ageing Sea Panther in my Berwick. My choice is the Beta 30. Has anybody on the Forum installed a Beta in the 31 series? If so are there any points to beware of?

Re: Across hull strengthener

Thanks for all your input into this. This is how it looked after stripping off the original glassing in which was NOT cracked?? Like you I am puzzled as to why there is a gap. I can assure you that it does contact by the keel stub and up the side of the hull. Very confusing. If it was not fixed at t...
