Re: Albatross p-bracket

For what it's worth, I used stainless steel countersunk with hex socket heads (easier to get out later) with a good amount of sikaflex to seal and form an electrolytic barrier.

Re: Albatross Mark 3 fuel pump

Not difficult, it’s for an SU low pressure pump. It fits on that bracket pointing backwards. The outlet with a gravity non return valve inside sits at the top. Options? Buy a new one from Burlen or check eBay, but one and a rebuild kit from Burlen. Are they reliable? Well…. Known to be sticky at tim...

Re: Galvanic corrosion on Pearly Miss

I’ve done some checking and it seems that “Galvanic Isolators” place a block in the Earth lead which, from what I can tell is probably four diodes in bridge format, ie two pairs in series but back to back. This gives a 1.2 volt barrier so there is no galvanic current path. For all other purposes the...

Galvanic corrosion needs contact between two metals which are apart on the periodic table and moisture. The same materials can cope if it’s wet, different materials if it’s dry.

Re: can any one identify this boat

Strange - did the seller know any history?
