Strange Knobs

Hi Everyone,

Proud owner of a 32' Halvorsen Gypsy 1986 model. Equipped with all the good bits and pieces and running a Dover Ford Lehmann SP135.

My question is:- There are two knobs in the main saloon. One near the helm station near the sliding door and another in the ceiling almost directly above the sink on the port side.

Does anyone know what they are? Their function?

Cheers

Welcome!
I'll take a stab at "knobs" (making many assumptions) I think the one over the sink could be a manual propane/cooking gas shutoff and the other one could be a fire pull or... I think some photos would help. Did I say welcome? Welcome!

Hi,

On my IG32, the knob above the stove is the shut-off valve for the propane tank. You can see the valve under the upper helm station, on the port side. I replaced this manual valve with an electric solenoid with the control panel in the galley.
The knob next to the sliding door below the helm is a windshield wash.
I hope this helps.
Harry

Welcome aboard Malcolm.
Harry Gordon`s post is right on both counts. LPG takes a while to reach the stove. Beware of water dripping off the valve, it indicates water running along the delivery pipe,if so reseal the wood block on the FB deck near the gas bottle(s) where the gas starts its journey to the stove.
Now if I could find where the washer water exits at the screen.... that valve seems just decorative on my boat.
From pic 2, you are getting some spray via the helm door, and something seems to be happening to the bottom of the ply panel, ? water entry.

the knob over the sink is indeed the shut of for the CNG tanks. The one by the helm has me stumped. I have one of them as well and just gave up wondering about it

Looks like a removable panel behind the wheel. Take it off and see what the knob hooks to.
