Do I need a 25" Length?

I am forced to buy a new motor and am settled on a 40hp Merc. Do I need the 25" length or will the 20 inch do? I am confused about this :o :?

Cooler or Fooler??

My Wife found this and likes the idea as it can be used when away from the dock. I have not seen it reviewed here before and wonder if anyone has tried it? Also just interested in the opinions of "those that would know". http://www.redlinecooling.com/uploaded/images/z%20cooler%20red%204.JPG Here is ...

Bruce/Claw Anchor

First of all I have missed u guys....have been away for almost a year due to wife's medical condition. We both just lost interest in everything and our lives were consumed by "what if". Now got our heads back on track and realized we are wishing our lives away and missing out on the "now" good times...

I know I wanted a boat "ready to sail". I did have in mind many mods that I picked up here, but I wanted to sail her more than mod her :D

Re: Well hello...

Welcome aboard. The X is made to learn as u go. Easy to sail (or motor). This board has tons of information so use it (or us). I know I did and with limited sailing experience it sure helped :!: :wink: Planning on putting my X back in her slip next wk, now that the rain has finally stopped :? Allan

Re: Adding fresh water system?

MY advice is don't drill...fill :!: Bladders or water containers is the best choice as far as I am concerned.

Re: Meals on your mac !!

We (read that I) cook anything and everything that I cook at home, while on the boat. As long as it doesnt require a real oven (use the grill for that) or a microwave. Cabin cooking takes a little more planning and thoughtfulness but u can cook anything u can imagine, given the time and the will 8) ...

Re: Sailing Bucket List

We like to use the Marina Slip as a little get away at times. Every now and then for a couple of days/nights. We can stay down there on the boat on the Wkend and there is always a party somewhere. Or stay during the week and just visit with the hard core boaters (mostly retired). :) Eat/cook on the ...
