Re: Code zero sail

I had two different cut nylon drifter/gennakers on my :macx: as well as a factory spec doyle jib, genoa and asymmetric. The drifters stored compactly and allowed me to leave the 110 jib on the cdi furler all year since they were free flying from the spinnaker halyard. I used them instead of the geno...

Re: mainsail attachment to mast or boom?

Worth a try. Maybe just run a line or webbing around the mast and through the clew for a test.

Re: Just Rambling....

6. My aft, underneath the stern end cushions have never been on my boat but are stored. That place is only used for my storage of my kayak and plastic tubs of supplies, nets, tools, screen, and hatch.
Interesting, never thought of putting a kayak down there. Inflatable, or what kind?

Re: Anybody have the newer 90hp Yamaha on their boat?

Looks like a good motor, I don't think it would disappoint. I had a much larger and heavier 90 on my :macx: so it should fit fine. Yamaha makes good engines :!:

Re: Max Horsepower for '01 26 x

I ran a 2003 suzuki DF90 (older 1950cc 400lb 4 stroke) on my X for a few years. I also had a 2003 honda 50 and 2015 suzuki DF20a on it. I have a yamaha 70 on my skiff. The yamahas seem to be a little smoother to me. The 90 is a great match to the x. My experience is stay at 9.9 or jump to at least 7...

Re: De-powering to 10-25 hp ob motor?

Therefore, it may be more suitable for my next motor to have just enough power for full displacement mode + a little extra in reserve for super windy days and power through squalls. I ran a honda 50 for a few years, then suzuki 90 for a few and then suzuki 20 on my :macx: . The 90 was fun for after...

Re: advice on new sails for 26x

Take a look at the descriptions on this page, they are specific to :macx: sails and do a good job of describing the different features. http://shop.bwyachts.com/category-s/112.htm The standard jib is 110% and genoa 150%. There have been debates on which is preferred. My experience from having both i...

Re: Need replacement mast for a 26s

Not sure if the search still works, but I replaced my X mast which is the same as the S with one from a nacra5.2 beach catamaran, it was almost the same. A few have used beach cat masts since they seem to be the easiest to find and closest in size. Used they usually go for around $200.

Re: Mac 222

I would check ebay & craigslist for something used. Find something close in size and modify it as necessary. Would be quicker and probably less expensive than building.

Re: Garmin GPSMAP or ECHOMAP

Both have NMEA 2000 so should do what you want. I would email or live chat garmin to ask about the specific radar and wind transducer you want to hook up. Largest difference I see would be if you want touchscreen or buttons. I kinda like the buttons when bouncing around, others like touchscreen. If ...
