    Kim and I planning to start the Loop this October and I'd sure like to look Hi-D-Ho over again to see what I might like to emulate, something such as your davit. If you're available anytime soon we're good with almost any day since we are both retired now.

    Hi HiDho,

    We are finally out of the shipyard from hell and snug in Lamb's Marina across from Elizabeth City NC and trying to figure out whether the light at the end of the tunnel is a train. I've been so busy with what has turned out to be the most complex project of my life that I haven't had a chance to check in here.

    Our boat still has the S.S. flap. I can't recommend a retrofit rubber flap highly enough looking at this exhaust system. Same for the generator. I've seen them for sale many times.

    Get a loop in the exhaust hose as high as you can for both engines. I think it would be worth drilling a new hole in the hull to get the generator outlet above the water. If it is below the waterline, it needs a seacock and an anti-siphon vent in the loop.

    Hello Bill and Jayne,

    We just wanted to thank you both again for letting us tour your Manatee a few months ago and tell you that we have a contract on a 1984 Manatee. It's located in Melbourne and we are waiting on the current owner to complete some repairs, but we'll take possession sometime in July.

    David and Kim Witt
