I'll have 4 cycles to get it fixed before I will have to get off the grid or stay there for another month! Fun fun fun... BTW I had to get the darn thing Fedexed overnight because the big local marine store is shut down for inventory and no one else had a 1.25" freaking bronze ball valve. Gotta love Alaska. If I'm not too rushed I'll try to take some pictures so you can add a "What to do (or not to do) if you are a pathological procrastinator" section to your thruhull website..
Unfortunately 1.25" is a size that many don't stock. I'm lucky enough to be 10 minutes from Hamilton Marine, who does, but the local WM or Boaters World "fahghet about it"!!
