Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

lift and pull draw catches! couldnt be cheaper! there is a raised wooden cross member across the drawer recess just behind the face- and the drawer has a widthwise corresponding slot/recess! when the drawer is closed- everything is snug and tight- to open the drawer, you lift the drawer so that the ...

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

Re: How would you design a trailerable power sailor?

. . . and an unstayed cat schooner rig. How does one step and unstep an unstayed cat rig on such a big trailer boat, unless it's done conventionally with a crane or derrick? i think it has its challenges, one may still need to use a MRS and tabernacles. but with carbon masts being a lot lighter, an...

Re: How would you design a trailerable power sailor?

my dream trailer sailer is 33' by 10'.
more traditional styling, pilothouse!
with our unique hull we are working on, better planing performance, better sailing performance.
set up with twin outboards for redundancy, and an unstayed cat schooner rig.
with asymmetrical bilge/ lee boards

As for traile...

Re: Sliding galley

one of the first mods i did, besides resolving the unequal steering, was to change the galley hose, to its own thru hull, stop cock and a smooth bore hose, so that it drained better and didnt plug up with food debris. so now the motor well has its own drain hose, with a thru- hull in the motor well,...

Re: Where is everyone?

i love this forum, and always felt that we could all be honest about our beloved boats attributes and their shortcomings, after all every single boat is a compromise to some degree or other. i was on a Fb page and got banned cos i dared disagree with the admin about some point or other, that i cant ...
