Aloha Discussion / Aloha 34 information added to site

Vacation over and finally found some spare time lol.

I've taken the "Aloha 34 Reference Library", split it into separate (compressed) library and photo gallery documents which are integrated with the applicable menu entries on the site.
Aloha 34 owners should have no problem finding this information. I have also added a link to the unadulterated pdf in the "Documents" section.

Let me know if I missed or messed anything up. Suggestions to improve anything are also welcome.

Hope things are going well with the purchase. I'm a new owner of an A30 as of this spring. I think Jackrabbit pretty much summed up all the major points. If you have any specific questions I'd be happy to help out if I can.
Aloha Discussion / Aloha 26 w/ Sole diesel mini 17

Hello forum, my wife and I just recently purchased the Nepenthe, a 1979 Aloha 26, equipped with a Sole mini 17 sail drive. If anyone has knowledge of this set up, my questions are: do you put it in reverse to sail? Does the prop fold?
This is also my first time sailing a fract rig and I am open to any pointers on sail trim.
Thanks for your interest. Fair winds!

I need to replace the lens as well as the frame. I am in Nova Scotia. I have found a company here but the color will be different and I don't know if they can make the corners the same. I have to get to the boat  to check what size radius of the corner.

Sorry Bruce....yes the editor kind of sucks.  If you're using Google Chrome then you need to click on the legend and DESELECT all the boat types except the A32s. Then you can add Annie's Song.  I can't see a way to change it once it's in there except to delete it and start again.
But thanks for helping out.  We've got over 60 boats listed now.

Hi Jeff,

Where are you located? There are several plastics fabricators in Toronto that people have used for the Atkins and Hoyle ports.
They would also be able to fabricate a replacement lens but do you require the frame as well?

From reading other posts it does not appear to be a simple matter to replace just the lens. That's why many have had to use the original manufacturer in California to supply entire replacements.

I'm also wanting to replace the lens in our fixed ports. Can anyone provide insight as to how/if this is even possible? I haven't tried removing all the screws and inner frame yet.

In Ottawa there is Plastec fabricators and Canus plastics - they make plastic ports, can custom build plastic rims, etc..
