    Bud - I have removed a Perkins Perama M-30 from my 1974 Westsail 32 and plan to replace it with a Perkins 4-108 with a Borg Warner Velvet Drive transmission.  Can you supply me with the mounting configuration for this combination?  Also, I finally got the fuel tanks out of the boat.  I did not have time to take measurements before I had to leave for work, but will get back to that when I get home later this week.  The tanks appear to be stainless steel, and I am not certain that they are leaking.  However, I would like to get the quote on your aluminum replacement tanks so I will be ready to order if needed.  As an aside, what are your thoughts about supporting the tanks on the outboard side with a narrower wood shelf and on the inboard side with removable heavy gauge aluminum brackets extending from the cockpit side to the outboard shelf?  Also, have you had any quotes from your rudder contacts?  My email address is enniskay@gmail.com.  Thanks.  Ennis Kay
