Whale makes a good foot pump that can be installed below the sink, or to the side. My foot pump is for seawater, and my cooler is emptied with a hand pump at the sink that works just great.

All the best and welcome to the forum and sailing.

Hi Ed,

I took the plunge and bought an Isotherm 2501 from Defender Marine, with my membership it cost $912.00. It's good for 7cf.

I was looking at your photos and note that you put the FRP on top of metal insulation. Can you tell me what you brand of insulation you used, thickness is see is 2-3 inches and covered in aluminium tape, R-value and whether it is closed cell foam? It also looks like you came rather straight up and eliminated the recessed area, or is this a misconception?

I'll send photos when I am installing it later in the spring. Hoping the snow melts soon. lol.

Best regards,

Hi welcome,

It's a good boat. I have a 323, and love it.

If you have the universal Atomic 4. Moyer Marine is the place for parts, advice and other such things.

All the best.

Hi Rob,

I have owned 2 323's but have raced on the P-26 several times as crew. It's a sturdy pocket cruiser. If you are new to sailing, put some experience in your pocket before venturing out into the Atlantic.

All the best,

New Member Introductions / Dyneema or other synthetic standing rigging
« Last post by grzano on Today at 03:37:48 PM »

I have a 1978 P-323, and the standing rigging looks, well original. I am thinking of replacing it but am in between wire and synthetic. I was wondering if anyone in the forum has any recent experience in this area?

Best regards,

Deck Mounted Hardware / Running lines aft on 323
« Last post by jmcmonagle on Today at 09:51:53 AM »
Thinking  of running some lines aft on 323.

Think I have most of it figured out but am stumped on how to mount winch and clutches on the aft part of the cabin top.
The inner liner does not appear to be removable.
How have others mounted hardware in that area?
