Sea Swing Stove, and plans.

Hello Everyone.

A new update in the realm of parts hunting. Grabbed an ancient Bremer SeaSwing stove off ebay, with a 2 pint kerosene Hipolito burner.

One of the parts that I'm missing, is the bulkhead mount! Anyone out there in cyberspace have a picture of one? Hopefully in a few days the parts to complete the stove will arrive, and I'll be ready to put it all back together. Force 10 wouldn't even talk to me about parts for the gimble, so I'll need to find one used or fabricate one.

Heading down for the weekend to check on her. If the rain doesn't hold, I have hopes of of finishing up glass work and measuring the decks to figure out how many sheets of core will be required. Will also be installing the secondary manual bilge pump (Henderson Mark V) and reconfiguring the side deck drains. In a moment of "just get it done" thinking, I grabbed 1 1/8th hose, and through hulls... forgetting about the goal of using the decks as a water collector. Inch and an eighth Y valves are hard to find... but so is one inch clear hose. Grr. This is the third attempt at this job, but doing things right the "first" time sometimes means reworking until things are perfect.
