Lots of good ideas for the companionway. Thank you very much.
Now, how about getting the beasts on and off the boat into the dinghy to row them ashore to do their business/go for a "walk"?
Appreciate any wisdom the group may have.

I have the tall extractor and would definitely go for the shorter more stable one (like the topsider) if given a second chance. The tall one is ok for cars but is a bit tricky to transport back and forth to the boat - you need to wedge an oily tall cylinder somewhere in your car - and I have...
Is it possible you had your A's and B's mixed up?
A polar diagram is boat speed plotted versus course off the wind. So the distance from the origin at any given angle is the boat speed at that angle. Another way to think of it is if you plotted the velocity vector with its tail at the origin...
One issue that has been experienced with electronic ignition (EI) is burned out coils. The dwell angle for EI is quite different than that for points so the coil is energized for longer.

fuel pressure gauge
A fuel pressure gauge is an invaluable diagnostic tool. I installed one between the fuel pump and the carburetor on my A4. Get a marine rated gauge if you plan on leaving it installed. Very cheap and easy to install. It has saved me on several occasions.
If you have...
A note of caution. A fellow in my area had a boat on the hard and he put a space heater in it as he had not winterized the engine.
This caused a fire which led to him losing that boat, the adjacent barn and another boat that was by the barn.
Heaters draw a lot of current and you need to be...
Thank you all very much for the prompt responses.
Installation is not gimballed - I am a "sit on the hook every night" sailor so far and lunches are sandwiches. No pot holders either - I got the stove for $75 and it will drop into the existing hole in the galley counter.
