    Used Diesel?

    Ha! No!! I'm (casually) looking at an E32-200 and would remove the diesel to replace with EP. Just curious what I could get for the M25-XP. Sorry for the alarm Chris ;-)

    Origo 4100 pot hold

    Hi Gabriel, I like the Dometic Origo 4100. I used to have a pressurized alcohol stove and liked the excitement ;-). The non pressurized stove is simpler and seems plenty hot for my use.

    E27 Interior modifications?

    Thanks for the compliments. The v-birth step and galley extension were particularly useful additions. Turns out redoing the v-birth (ceilings?) was one of the best changes. I used to store stuff up there but after putting all the work into the refit i actually use it as a birth now and keep it...

    Marine Tide Sailtrack on an E27

    Hi Bob, Do you remember if the track stuck out past the mast? I did get a response from Tides Marine. They said the track might wobble a bit but should be fine. Tides is sending me a sample piece of track to check out.

    Marine Tide Sailtrack on an E27

    Thanks for the input. I have contacted Tides Marine about the mast profile but haven't heard back yet. The mast profile on my E27 has no flat area where the mainsail luff slides mount. Looking at the Tides Marine sail track shape it seems like it relies on a flat section on the back of the...
