How does the added weight of you Dink effect sailing? I'll post pictures. It took some real modification of the receiver plates to make it work in the minimal space on the stern deck.
I think you have me and Jimgo mixed up. I don't have davits. My boat's name is "Traveler".

One thing I noticed on your post was the placement of the fuel tank. My diesel tank is under the tri cabin bed and its really big. In the engine room which is on the starboard side of the cockpit I have the hot water tank by the transom but the rest is batteries, plumbing, motor and electrics. Lariat under the Helmsman seat is for my Dan ford anchor and extra road.

My water tank is under the v birth.

For your sole; Jamestown marine has the replacement teak plywood t/g and holly strips.

They must have changed something... The brochure we have (original) said 50 gallon water tank. We have put in 40 for sure. Our 40 gallon fuel tank is in the stbd "engineering space" (as I call it) along with the hot water heater and the refrig unit, batteries are under the aft port cabin cushion. See my photo album also, welcome aboard.

Welcome to the family Dave.

I'm sailing from Washington also,,, North Carolina that is. I have an album of my 31 and tons of information. I have all the original manuals and have done a ton of work getting "ALOHA BANKS II" ready for the Caribbean next year.

My facebook is Bob Robertson, e mail is captbob@!earthlink.net, drop me a line if you need help.

Re: New Allmand 31 owner aboard

Hey Dave;

Welcome to the family. I'm also owner number 3 on my Allmand 31. Aloha Banks II in Washington, NC. My face book is Bob Robertson with lots of pictures of my boat. Mine is a 1984 hull number is 31198 which I believe is #98.

On your water, use your pump so all the lines are rinsed out after shocking the tank. I had to do this 4 times before the smell went away and we live on our boat year round. I'm about to add a fill tap to the cold water side of the hot water heater so I won't use the tank as much. I'll still back fill with the cold water side of the circuit to keep all fresh.

Captain Bob.

Re: New Allmand 31 owner aboard

I don't have many good pix yet but this one shows her pretty well. She's in excellent shape; just needs some cosmetic help. I'm currently working on sanding and re-varnishing the teak. Also fixing a bit of rotted floor in the galley under the hatch.

Dogonit Jim...

Got me thinking and I just looked them up, looks like the broker may have been dislecsic and I never researched it. My fuel tank is a big metal thing accessible throught the stbd side cockpit locker and is a tall thing that almost goes to the floor of the cockpit. My water is the integral tank under the V berth.

I drilled an access on top of the water tank and installed a large deck plate. Now I can clean and inspect the tank.

How big do you think the waste tank is? 10 gallons?

Re: New Allmand 31 owner aboard

Dave,
According to the spec sheets, the Allmand had a 40 gallon water tank and 25 gallon fuel tank. Did one of your PO's upgrade the fuel tank on yours?

My boat has the Universal M25; do you know what approx range I can expect from a full tank? I know it depends on a number of different variables but is there a general rule of thumb to use? I really want to eventually sail her over to and around the Bahamas.

Also, any thoughts on replacing the diesel with an electric motor? I plan on installing a wind generator and solar panels soon and I know an electric motor would require a bigger battery bank, maybe some wiring upgrades, etc.

I appreciate any advice you can give me.

Hi Brett,

I have a 31' with the 5424 (basically the same motor). I have a 40 gallon tank, I cruise (3/4 power or so) at 5.75-6.25k (depending on current) at the rate of 1 gph. Do the math for where you want to go and what you want to do.

Unless you want a total electrical refit of the boat, I'd drop the "electric" idea, but that's just me.

How about some pics?

Dave
