Signaleer - 26x Transom Extension - Addition - Each side added about 1 foot

Hello Signaleer. I think this is the boat you were looking for. The contact information for the owner/seller, Currie, is in the ad.

Re: Boat Pole

It can be helpful if your boat hook floats, such as if you drop it in the water while trying to pick up a mooring ball. (ahem, been there) Also, I think a three part telescoping hook is great because it packs down small. I keep mine standing just inside the companionway, held in place by one of thes...

Re: Skegs, straight tracking, revisited.

Thanks, everyone. Interesting information. I always have the ballast in except when planing. I'm going to try the autopilot at 7-8 knts without ballast to see if there's an improvement.

Skegs, straight tracking, revisited.

Hello Ris, Ixneigh and anyone else who has an informed opinion about getting the boat to track straight under power at 5-10 knts. Ris said: "Putting a skeg on the aft 42 inches of the boat made it track like a dream with the auto pilot and no rudders." And also: "With no rudders and a self added ske...

Re: Hot water heater

I've had one of these for four years and we've used it for at least 200 hot showers. https://www.whalepumps.com/marine/product.aspx?Category_ID=10054&Product_ID=10427&FriendlyID=12V-Water-Heater-11-ltr-3-US-Gal-Electric-Only Yes, it's somewhat expensive.

As we all know, the Mods section continues to be broken. But ... there is a way to view the already posted mods (Can't help you with posting new mods, only Heath can do that ...)

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: Where to mount kicker on an X

Also, most people are right hand dominant. If you're right-handed, it's probably a lot easier to get to get the kicker motor on and off the mount if it's on the starboard side. I have not found that the backstay is in the way. And if you're using that swim ladder on a regular basis, you imay end up ...

Re: What's everyone doing about curtains?

The shades have taken some rough handling and are still doing fine. 3 x 1535 2 x 1510 1 x 1530 I didn't order a cover for the window in the head because that window has two vents installed (Nature's Head, etc.) One can not see through the two holes in each shade where the stoppers attach to the wind...

Re: Ballast leak

I had a problem with water accumulation in the bilge of my 2002 26x any time I would sail (heel), motor or when the boat was moored in even slightly rough water. This would happen whether the keel was up or down. There was no water accumulation when the boat was moored and the water was totally calm...

My keel line broke.

My keel line broke. From the photo, you can see the line is healthy, but all that clanging of the keel from the boat staying in the water year round just wore it away. http://i66.tinypic.com/w6y4jo.jpg I was going to replace it with Dyneema and I see that's what Blue Water Yachts is selling. http://...
