Re: Where is everyone?

Candidly, I expect users, especially long-time users, are frustrated they have invested untold hours, 250,000 posts and hundreds of mods, only to have it all just abandoned. This board helped sustain the value of this boats themselves by sustaining interest in their unique qualities. The thing that...

Re: Forestay on the las 3 strands!

The crimped forestay is a temporary repair. Becouse of this I think about including a Toggle. Tomfoolery I don't see My Toggle. What do you mean?
I worry that a Toggle that is longer than 40mm will make it hard to mount the turnbuckle inside the drum down of the CDI furler.

Re: Forestay on the las 3 strands!

Thanks Jummy for your photo with the toggle. So fare I sitll have concerns to change to a toggle. When I look for a toggle they are long 45mm to be big enough for the 10mm shakle from the shrouds. The problem I see is that the free cable form the end of the crimps to the furler it becomes to short. ...

Triducer at stern with ev-100 raymarine display

Hello I can show you my new mod. I installed the airmar P39 Triducer at the stern. The data goes with nmea2000 to the raymarine p70 display, that was already installed at the helm becouse of the raymarine autopilot ev-100. So it works perfect for temperature and depth. The speed is to slow becouse o...

Re: New winch for 2007 Al trailer

Re: Rudders up when motoring

I don't see the differens in motoring in 6kn and sailing in 6kn. I don't think motoring is heavier for the rudders.

Re: Rudders up when motoring

I'm shure you can use your rudders down at speed up the mac will go to planning. And this is till 6kn. You also sail at these speeds.

Above that that mac goes towards planning. And then the rudders must go up. But with 30HP this will not happen I guess.

What is your speed you want to motor?
