Ron,  Enjoy the technical column in mainsheet. We have a C34 hull number 287 (Confetti) that we sail on Lake Michigan out of White Lake.
In the recent copy of mainsheet, you mentioned upgrading the alternator bracket. I'm not sure mine was ever done, although it hasn't presented any problems yet. I ordered the past tech notes collection, and read the article on the bracket. Unfortunately, the copy quality of the pictures that show the old and new bracket are not good. I wondered if you had a better copy  that you could send, or a description that would help me determine if I have the old or new?

Dave : Universal (now Westerbeke) came out with the modification to the M25 that moved the bracket from over the top of the alternator to underneath - the same as the M25XP. They have the mod. kits. (SEE ABOVE)
