Raw water electric Head to fresh water source

We have an electric Head that uses raw water. Recently we have noticed that depending on the source of the raw water, ocean, river or creek, there is either no odor (open ocean) or a very strong odor (rivers or creeks). We are considering a conversion to fresh water for the Head. Has any other member encountered the same issue? If yes, what was done to solve the odor issue. Sent from my iPad Any comments / suggestions regarding the conversion are very much appreciated. Thanks Isi & LaMae S/V Windseeker II NJ

Moving the C380 Traveler Cleat Inside the Dodger

By: Tim Porter, C380 Tech Ed. The C380 came with two versions of Garhauer mainsheet travelers; the 1st generation has the control line coming through the upper part of the rail and thence through a cam-cleat mounted on a plate that is sandwiched between the rail and the sheave-box below the rail. The 2nd generation traveler, which came in 1999 sometime (likely around the mid-100 hull numbers), uses the same rail but employs a SS plate mounted atop the rail with a similar cam-cleat. Both systems require that the traveler lines pass through the isinglass of a dodger, and require the pass-through to be vertically slotted to accommodate releasing the line from the cam-cleat. This project will move the traveler cam-cleat inside the dodger for both generations of travelers. When it came time to replace the canvas on my boat, I wanted to get rid of the slot through the
