Ahoy !
I could make Front Hutch Covers , Pop Top, or Sliding Hutches . I'm pattern maker by trade. Also ,I have 80 NA 23 .
I was thinking to reinforced front hutch with sub-frame and install there photo cells to maintain my batteries . There is few good places to place them , but front hutch have just right angles......

Let me know what you think . Petr

Let me know what it would cost me to have one made and is the 80 model the same as 76? I dont need any photo cells as I have shore power to keep the batteries.

I found the pic of the keel cable pulley adapter you made, I think, in an earlier thread/ page.

Is the part sticking out of the hull under the floor just threaded into the hull?

You mentioned welding the nut on the bracket to fit the cable guide and another nut welded on for the forward mount?

This is a complicated fix for a newbie like myself.

There are enough people having this problem to warrant a complete start to finish video or pics to link to in forum.

I am planning on working on this in the water. It looks like it could be done, but I still cant get the cable guide out of the hull. When I tried to turn it with vice grips it almost fell apart. I am pretty sure it will have to be drilled out. Any ideas for the replacement?

I think if you remove the cable housing from the trunk keel you will create a major hole/leak in the boat. You better be a fast worker or have good bilge pumps or both!

The cable housing sticking out under the floor is screwed into the nut welded on the back part of the bracket in the upper part of the keel,and another nut screwed (from the inside, under the floor) with washers and 3M sealant to captivate it. The forward nut is welded on the top inside of the bracket (it helps to captivate the cable from coming off the pulley) Then a bolt with washer & sealant screws into that from under the floor. The problem with a video or more pics is the job is done & the boat is finished. I'd have to take it all apart again. I'm not going to do that.

Well I finished the 12 gal tank installation whew what a job! It's a permanent tank so the filler is on the starboard side. 12 gal should make that 9.9 run for a long time! Cockpit cushions are coming and so is my summer off work. Georgia Strait here I come!!
