I have an 8.2 as well.  I don't have a full enclosure, but I have dodger and bimini.
Also have a piece of removable canvas that joins the two.  Great when it rains,
but because the traveller is in the cockpit just behind the companionway
I can't put up the extra bit of canvas unless I am not sailing (ie dock or motoring).

Its not clear to me that the boom clears the raised portion of the cover.  Not a problem if you don't plan on sailing.

Hello all! I was wondering if others in the Aloha 27/8.2 community had built full cockpit enclosures for their boats. I'm sailing out of Vancouver BC, and I would love to be able to extend my season into the rainy fall/winter. I have a dodger currently, so I'm looking for information on bimini setups.

I saw this image on Google. Belong to anyone on here?

Its haul out season.
Don't forget to ask your friendly crane/travel lift operator how much your 32 weighs.
I'm curious to compare.

I have a W21 as well.  The coolant in my overflow tank does go down a little over the summer, maybe an inch or so.  However, over the winter, it drops about 1/2 a litre.  If I remember correctly, the hose connects to the manifold just under the cap, although I will check the next time ( the last time) I am at the boat.  I have no explanation for why my coolant drops over the winter.     Bruce

I'm looking for a comparison to another W21 engine.
My coolant overflow tank doesn't seem to change level at all. The engine coolant is down an inch or so since I drained and filled the system this spring.
Can someone with this engine have a look under their filler cap on the manifold. Their is a small hole in the cap receiver that I believe is suppose to meet a tube to the small elbow further back. This connects to the clear hose in the pic to the overflow tank.

My question is: is your hole in line with this tube, which runs parallel to the edge of the manifold to the elbow.

Mine is offset and i'm pretty sure there is no path for the coolant to get to the underside of the cap, the pressure of hot coolant opens the the path to the tank. If this is true and your tank is above the cap coolant should trickle in wen the cap is open, I think.

Any thoughts? Trying to get this sytem working.

That is odd that your hose size is different.  Was the old elbow also 1.75"?   I did not replace my old hose and it just slipped on the new elbow.   Bruce

I just replaced my elbow a few weeks ago after it corroded out.  It is the aluminum cast elbow now as you stated above.  The problem I have now is that my muffler is 1.75" in and out and the elbow takes a 2" line.  I will be updating my muffler and using a reducer on the exhaust hose side.  A good source for westerbeke and universal engines is Anthony Keats marine.

Hi Mark,

I'm not sure what "book" you're referring to, on Lake Ontario the base rating for the A30 is 150 flying sails (assumes "normal" race configuration of 155% LP genoa, 180% symmetrical spinnaker, and folding prop) and 168 no flying sails.

PHRF districts then apply credits and debits to the base rating for oversized and undersized sails, prop types, and other unique features i.e. I get a credit of 4 seconds for using a 135% genoa but also a 9 second hit for an oversized 215% spinnaker.

Hope this helps...
