    Looks like that weather will move through for you in a couple more hours. Be safe....

    I haven't done that repair or seen the kit, someone here must be familiar with it. Odd place to
    fail, I'd expect it to fail on the cockpit side where there's no possibility for diagonal
    bracing for th...

    It's almost always the simple stuff. It wasn't missing the standpipe, the ball was in the wrong
    place.Is the pot marked in any way? The Christen version has a domed end and a concave end.....
