    Hi – is there any possible chance these are still available? Now that Covid is less of a thing…

    I’m interested – how much and where are they?

    Bryan, where, typically is the transition between the cored and non-cored areas? Is the cored area only above the waterline? Thanks – Chris

    Madsailor – any chance you have a drive shaft available? From the engine to the v-drive?

    Thanks – Chris

    These are great pictures, Dennis, thanks so much. A couple of questions for you-

    1) how did you attach the tangs to the mast for the back stays? Did you reinforce the mast in any way at that position?

    2) Do the running backstays attach directly to the toe rail?

    3) I’m having a hard time seeing in the pictures what you’re showing me in the anchor locker and the windlass.

    4) Just out of curiosity, what does that 1/2″ metal plate with the holes in it in the anchor locker do for you?

    Thanks again – this is a huge help.

    John – there’s a great discussion about all of this from about four years ago here:

    Solent Stay

    It looks as though a true stay sail would attach to a fitting directly aft of the anchor locker bulkhead, reinforced under the deck with a chainplate fitting that transfers the stress to the bulkhead itself. Pretty simple and ingenious.

    Lord, there’s a lot of great stuff in the forum archives of this site.

    Thanks, Ryan, but I’m looking for an actual inner stay, not a solent. They look to be placed further back, in the deck over the V-berth.

    I am curious, though – what’s the purpose of this particular solent, so close to the forestay? Will you run a drifter or something on it in light wind?

    And where do you store the stay to keep it out of the way when it’s not hooked onto the foredeck?

    Thanks – Chris

    I’d be interested in the drive shaft. Would you sell it by itself?

    Thanks – Chris

    Hi Evan – My name is Chris Hill. We’ve recently bought hull #200. She’s located in Washington NC, on the Pamlico River. We’ll be putting a Perkins 4154 in her, and hope to have her splashed this fall. It will be her first time in the water in more than 23 years!

    Out of curiosity, Kalinowski, what happened to the W58? Did you part it?

    Thanks, all, for the suggestions. I have a completely rebuilt 4-108 in my garage that I could also make work, but it would be a little underpowered for the 424. I’ve also had a 4-236 in a larger boat and just loved it. Older diesels have disadvantages, for sure, but rebuilt from the sleeves they are at least simple and straightforward. Not to mention a whole lot less expensive, as the cost difference could easily run to 15k. And Perkins parts are still pretty easy to come by.

    I’m just weighing the options.

    Would this work? Great company and ships very fast to the US.
