    this is rockwool with a black, non woven, fire resistant- tissue fixed on one side.
    this product is standard available in Belgium, 15euro/m2.
    It came on the trailer with the platform.
    any "marine" acoustic product at a chandler in Italy was minimum 100euro/m2

Normally they are like this, 99% of time:



    But for port side to berthing (fe) they can be like this (not great pic sorry):

    J,
    do you know the oem supplier for these side rails
    or does Fairline make this in house ?

    or can you provide dimensions ?
    I know a VERY good SS specialist in Fiumicino

    Fairline use several OEM suppliers os these types of s/s components. Lots of firms can make them. Height above deck 775mm

    You need to create a "detent" to hold them in. If you just have plain simple sockets you will lose them. Google for s/s devices called "Spring Plunger" eg http://uk.rs-online.com/mobile/p/ind...ngers/0478911/and http://www.ondrives.com/mechanical-s...rs-m3-m20.html

    The deck sockets contain a lathe-turned component, to create an annular ring for the spring-ball to "click" into. The male spigot at bottom of the 30mm tube is also machined, and drilled to make a threaded hole for the spring plunger to screw into. See section sketch below.

    You must put the spring plungers in with loctite. Mine weren't, and then unscrewed with vibration and the "dead" end got into the annular groove, so I couldn't remove them (it got fixed under warranty!).

    Oi Rob! I could have done it in SolidWorks but fag packetery is much more friendly. That's not any old fag packet though. Note the fine detial: for example the cross hatching goes into the thread where the thread is empty, but not where there is a threaded component screwed into the thread. That is pure BS308 engineering drawing that is. And done here on the boat, and scanned in and 3G-ed from South of France :-)

    Off topic a bit but I particularly like your London pattern fag packet screwdriver.

    jfm,

    so what are you exactly, I'm confused!

    looks like you're trained engineer, work in legal/finance/whatever but not engineering and have a naval arch hobby

    nice sketch btw

    ah, and since we're in thread drift mode, if you get 10mins and the weather is right, could you please retake the pics of the Mystere in your marina?
    cheers

    V.

    Where is note you see on most engineering drawings, "if in doubt ask"?

    Naah, I never tried to convince anyone.
    I choose for myself when I was 40, but I understand that it can take longer for others people to see the light!
    Mind, jfm already began talking of CNB...

    Yep, very accurate indeed.
    In fact, it makes me wondering if I'm missing some good reason why the annular groove in the deck socket seems to interrupt the centerline...?
