Guys,

  What are the basic bell dimensions?  The Drum's bell looks like it's in the ball park of 12" in diameter.  Thanks.

No one from the Foundation has stepped up to the plate?  This should be an easy one to write, since it's procuring a single object.  Is this something that you would want to mount to the 310 boat?
