    We’ll be out in Nova Scotia in September, if your return route takes you back to your home province we would like to meet up.

    Jim, how is your itinerary and timing looking? We are currently in the Bras d’Or Lakes and will be back on Nova Scotia’s south coast by the end of August. In September we will cross back to the US, but the exact departure time is TBD. Wonder if we will cross paths.

    Sorry about the multiple photos. When I was uploading them, it looked like the process failed several times, and I realized I was making a “user error.” Finally, I did it the correct way. Later, all the others showed up, but the editing function was not available.

    Here is another photo of the refit in progress.

    Hi Rich. Are you still looking for sails? I have a complete set. They seem to be in pretty good condition, but may need their reinforcements at the corners replaced.

    In case you can’t find the plate”

    Here is a link to the W60 manual, with detailed diagrams and measurements: https://www.westerbeke.com/advanced%20specs/w60.pdf.

    Here is the same for the W58. https://www.westerbeke.com/advanced%20specs/w58.pdf
    Its dimensions and form are slightly different from those of the W60.

    If you find out that your engine is a W60, hope you saw my earlier post about parting out our engine plus list of additional spare parts. Let me know if you are interested.

    Thanks for all this great information. Any other approaches or experiences out there? I would appreciate any photos anyone might be able to send to clarify the descriptions. I will also report on whatever we end up doing.

    Hi Herctor. In the photo, the guys are reinstalling the overhead I made last year.

    The boards are PVC, 8′ in length. However, I cut them into shorter sections so they would not flex uncontrollably in the installation. Cutting them to fit, using the original overhead panels as templates, was quite challenging, and there was a lot of wastage, so be sure to buy plenty. Part of the cutting challenge was that the original panels had spaces between them, but I had to make the new overhead continuous or I never would have been able to get the grooves to line up. So I butted up several strips to make a wide enough panel to lay 2 side by side overhead panels on them, trying to approximate the space that had been left. This was challenging because those spaces were not exact in the first place–they didn’t have to be–and my approximation introduced more errors.

    Here’s a photo of the cabin before it was disassembled to enable rebedding deck hardware. The dome nuts that you see were for through bolting mast pulpit bases. The real nuts are under the overhead. The bolts have now been cut back and we are covering the holes with new dome lights.

    No solar panels yet. However, we did radically increase our battery capacity. Panels and/or wind generator are in our future.

    Thanks. We are not native Nova Scotians, but do hope to be there in September. Let’s keep in touch.

    Would love to check in with you if our route takes us to the Chesapeake. Enjoy the sails.

    I have to check on the alternator I listed in the original email. I took that list from the one the PO gave me. But I am not sure I have seen the spare that’s listed. However, there is a 100 AMP alternator on the engine. If you are interested, in that one, let me know. I do have the spare manifold. The engine and equipment are currently in Nova Scotia. What’s the best way to contact you?

    Hi Adam,
