Re: 10 meter people load limit?

We had 16 on our 12m sedan for the boat parade. I don't take more than 10 offshore fishing. But those are both function and comfort items. The boat is so heavy I have never seen a handling difference either way.

Re: Air conditioning

On the 12 meter it is accessed through the closet in the Master. Not sure of the 10m layout.

Re: Vacu-flush system replacement??

Vacu-flush is the only way to go. Even if mine broke, I'd replace it with the same.

Mine was on real tight. I used PVC Slip-Joint Pliers from Home Depot.

Haha, yeah makes the boat seem longer. Just what the marina likes to see with their "stretchy" tape measures when they calculate the boats length for moorage rates. haha
In Florida, marinas are doing away with the tape, and charging based on the slip size, not the boat size.

I have heard of some live aboards who put a HTH pool chlorinating tablet in their strainer for the A/C to avoid growth. I have also heard of someone who grew up in a boatyard, who put a coil of copper wire in his A/C strainer and had good luck with that.
In saltwater, we use Bromine tablets.

Re: 12 Meter Express -Dart datamarine depth finder

Ours sit in the center bilge near the A/C and generator thru hulls. On the 1988 12m Sedan, that section of hull is solid glass.

Re: International 22" Forward Deck Hatch Replacement

We contacted Bomar (now owned by Pomapanette) and gave them our serial number from the hatch and they told us the original hatch on our 12 meter is a N2039-103. They do not sell that specific hatch anymore, but have replacements that fit the hole.
