  4. Hi John, I’m afraid I can’t help as I understand our steering has been replaced. Have you tried asking on the PBO forum or the Macwesters Owners Club?

  5. Many thanks for your prompt reply, may get up the courage to
    remove present one and tout it around possible suppliers.

  6. Hi
    Firstly thats for a great website, there doesn’t seem to be much out there for Macwesters but yours has a great bit of info. So thank you 🙂

    I purchased a 1974 Macwester 32 Wight mk2 a few months back “Roamer”, she’s moored ouy in Spain which is great for weekend breaks to go spend time on her, she’s a beautiful boat however there’s just one little thing I’d like to change is the canopy/spray hood, its canvas but very square which I’m not keen on, the one of Elder above is exactly what I’m looking for, would be possible to advise where you/they got it from if possible as I’d love to replace the current with a bit more up to date looking one like that?

    • Thanks for your kind words Mark.

      Well done for taking the plunge with ‘Roamer’. I can’t advise on where Eider’s owners sourced their sprayhood, however when we specced ours (see here: https://macwester.wordpress.com/macwester-malin-photos-pictures/), we considered local UK suppliers who were substantially cheaper, but we chose to pay two or three times the local offering to get what we perceived to be a better product in the Netherlands (where our yacht was at the time).

      Obviously we opted for a full cockpit tent, which might not be required as often in Spain as it is in Scotland. That said, we always consider the decision to spend more on the cockpit tent as one of the best upgrade decisions we have made. We rarely spend time in the main cabin; as the cockpit is a much better place to be. I think that the company we used has changed it’s name, but think that their website is here: http://www.zeilmakerijsailmasters.nl/

      For what it’s worth, my advice is to spend quite a bit of time asking questions and seeking examples of previous projects, as well as being very specific about what you want – for example, I provided a detailed diagram/drawing.

      Hope this helps!
