      Ron thanks so much. It appears your source has new gas tanks still.
      PS Any thoughts on a good boom canvas set up and vents to keep air circulating when the boat is stored and locked up (not a hatch).

      I am wondering if anyone has suggestions for a good set-up for a boom tarp. Also anyone know where to get the older 9-gal gas tanks used or new that will fit the Mac-19.

      First guess=some sort of Bimini or sun shade while docked.  The hook could hold up the center using a halyard or boom topping lift or hook to the boom, two poles through the "pockets" could be tied down to the deck to create shade.  A bit large to use during sailing but would provide shade for cockpit while docked having a meal or cocktails after a sail??

      OK, I have a mystery for y'all. I received this rather nice looking tarp-like item with the boat. The previous owner had gotten it from his predecessor, and did not know what it was. Neither do I.

      There are photos under Zimmer in the Photos section. It is about 8' on a side, and 2 sides have "slots" where the tarp material has been folded over, as if some sort of pole is supposed to pass through them. In the center is a very solid looking hook arrangement. The material seems to be of a much better quality than any tarp. It appears to be professionally made for some definite purpose.

      Anybody know what this thing is?
