I have a Bav.Ocean 42 with saildrive and a lead shoal keel and I want to fit a rope cutter. Has anyone fitted a ropecutter on a similar boat, and what make did they use? was it as successful as you hoped?
Hi, I had a rope cutter by Ambassador Marine fitted three years ago to our Bav 40. It is made by a small company near Winchester. I think it is very good quality and found the company very helpfull. http://www.ropestripper.com.
I also fitted the Ambassador Marine rope cutter to a 38 Ocean, which, I think, has the same engine/saildrive as the 42 Ocean.
It is well made and straightforward to fit. You need a modified anode that Volvo supply. In fact, it is probably best to get the complete kit from Volvo – I don’t think it is any more expensive than buying it from Ambassador.
