I ordered the DA107 13.25 inch damper plate. When we took it all apart it turned out I have the DA103 8 inch damper plate. I think maybe the flywheel has been changed at some point from the original.

Thanks for the input. In the end I went for the 15kg Rocna, 8 metres of chain, and 60 metres of 12 mm 3 strand nylon rope. Should be OK for local cruising.

Chung Hwa 42?

I think this is a Chung Hwa 42. Any idea when the hull may have been molded? It didn't go in the water till 2006 and I think it may have sat in the yard in Taiwan without engines for quite some time....
