  1. I tried ordering some of these this past weekend. Galleyware said that they are no longer going to carry these.. So, even though their warehouse showed 1 in stock, when I ordered, they sent a note and said that they are sorry but no more going to carry this line of dishes........
  2. So, I am in the middle of this project but here are the steps. Thanks to Kevin Temp for his counsel and advice remotely. I needed access to re-wire 2 switches and since ownership of my boat in the past 2 months, I found the helm switch panel plate loose. The switch plate is held in place to the dash with threaded studs on the back of the switch plate. There is a nut with star washer. To access the rear side, you have to go through the Vessel View Cut Out. Remove the upper and lower chrome plastic bezels on the Vessel View. I used a small plastic pry tool that you use to open a cell phone. Once the bezel rings are removed, you will find four (4) Philips screws holding the Vessel View to the dash. Remove the screws and carefully pull the Vessel View forward. Next, I used an endoscopic camera I have the wifi's to my cell phone to see what it looked like inside. Notice the stud with the nut in the 2nd photo, and you'll see how loose mine was. Both of the nuts on my switch plate were loose so I think maybe someone's been in there previously. If you carefully take the 8-32 threaded nut off (e.g. without dropping it into the abyss behind your dash), you can pull the switch plate forward. Now you know how to access your switches as well as how to secure the dash switch plate to the dash securely.
  3. Frank. Thanks for the reply. I think that in the next week or so, I am going to remove the dash panel with the hex head screws that holds the panel upon which the vessel view is mounted to. Will try to capture some photos or videos while I am doing it to post for others. But a few other projects first!
  4. So, during the sea trial of my new to me 2018 Monterey 355 SY, the surveyor noted that the ACR brand RCL 75 spotlight wasn't working. It does rotate and alsotraverses up and down using the dash mounted key pad. However, we don't get lights to illuminate. So, we chalked it up to the Halogen Bulbs being burned out. Well, upon further investigation and emails with customer support at ACR, they indicate that the RCL 75 is discontinued, they don't support it anymore, and that bulbs are even unavailable. I've called local dealers for ACR and none of they support it. I have tried to order the bulb on line from a few manufacturers but all say the replacement bulbs are backordered or not available. And there doesn't appear to be a set of LED's to swap into the RCL 75 to make it work. Thus my questions: A. Has anyone had luck finding the correct bulbs recently? B. Has anyone swapped out a RCL 75 with another spotlight, and if so, would you mind sharing details of your upgrade? Thanks in advance. The procedure for removing/replacing bulbs is quite complex so it's not a simple "just go open the spotlight and see if the bulbs are shot." Alec
  5. On my new to me 2018 Monterey 355 SY, I am going through my boat and cleaning everything. I noticed that the switch panel on the right side of the dash is loose. Since I have no Monterey dealers near me, has anyone had to reattach the panel in the past, and if so, what did you use?
  6. Found it! Seems like this website carries the same bowls and cups and plates. https://comstrom.com/products/j-1474-6-galleyware-flags-melamine-non-skid-20-ounce-soup-bowls-pack-of-6-j-1474-6
  7. Just purchased a 2018 Monterey 355 SY. Anyone ever replace their carpet or weave mat in the cockpit yet and have a stellar recommendation? Yes, I know that the responses above are 5 years old......
  8. Well, I just closed on a new to me 2018 Monterey 355 SY. And on day one I opened the cabinet and the stack of 4 of the melamine monterey bowls fell out and hit the floor. And one broke. Any idea where to buy new? No Monterey dealer near me..... Alec
