Anyone know on the W50 is the model R30G or R30G-1? In the Bahamas, broke down, having one flown in, and don't want to order the wrong part. Thanks! Zach

For anyone else wondering. I called Tartan, and they said it is the R30G-1. I've got mine on order and hope to be up and running soon.

Lesson learned: raw water pump is a good spare to have on board if traveling far

I always carried a spare salt pump and fresh pump and had to install both while cruising in out of the way spots. A very good idea with the W50. Also, I think you can get a good machine shop to rebuild your old Sherwood for a lot less than buying a new one. Not sure how many "good" machine shops are around any more, but I did it once.

Where did you end up buying your raw water pump? I noticed this week mine is starting to leak quite heavily from the weep hole and want to find a rebuild kit and/or a replacement quickly.

Hey Kirk, sorry took me so long to respond. We were away all last week. We actually called Sailor Man in Ft Lauderdale, a big marine warehouse. They sourced it for us and were able to get it to the airplane that flies daily to Staniel Cay.

No worries. I couldn't find a direct replacement for my F85 pump but found out that the G65 is the same pump with different sized fittings (3/4NPT instead of 1/2NPT) which actually match the plumbing I have so I'm hoping it should be a direct bolt on swap.

For anyone else looking I purchased the pump for $425 here:
