Re: Motor well scupper.

Stock drain is too small. A dead June bug will clog it. Anxious to see what he does on this. :)

Re: Forestay on the las 3 strands!

Kurtz, Glad you found it before it fell. I would measure the overall length, and build a new one to match the overall length out of your local parts. You will need to take it apart first and verify that your locally sourced parts will fit in the available space. Lay them out side by side and have fun!

Re: Catamaran from 2 ea 26s or d's?

Ok - no more beer for either of you. Actually, my three beer dream is a trimaran 26m with amas. Sort of a budget Corsair or Farrier. So, no more beer for me either. I don't know that a cat 26s or d has been done, but why not? Given enough money and desire anything can happen. Go for it! Now, about t...

Re: Rudders up when motoring

There is a "sweet?" Spot I've noticed where the M is like Mr Toad's wild ride. Slower and it's ok. Running on a plane is ok. It's definitely not just your boat. I've got a 60, so I either ease along or plane. You can definitely use the rudders at normal sailing speed, but not above. Some owners have...

Re: Things to do on Bimini by boat 8)

Agree. It's hot and humid here. Really rowdy thunderstorms every afternoon. That clear water and various sightseeing opportunities look really good.

Re: Etec fuelpump

If you're about to do an extended trip, waterpump, thermostat, check/change lower unit lube, and tune up; or at least do any of these that you haven't done recently. I would use new OEM replacement parts. I would consult the manual and do any recommended maintenance not listed above. While you're at...

Re: Upgrade already?

One cardinal rule of tubing. Don't get any closer to the shore, piers, or pilings than the length of your tow rope extended at a 90 deg angle to the side. A tube is not steerable, and can wind up literally anywhere the rope can reach, depending on how the boat is maneuvered, other boat wakes, etc. A...

Re: Upgrade already?

No one on the cabin roof. No sail area out. All lines, anchors, barbecue, etc secured. Dagger or centerboard and rudders fully retracted. Engine trimmed roughly where thrust is parallel to waterline. Everyone seated in cockpit or below per your manual. Push the throttle forward and run through the a...
