Re: 26 m with a 90 hp?

All, I have a 26m with an 09' ETEC-60 on it. I typically do long trips (several days to 10 days average). I have extra water storage, fuel storage, a composting head (no pump out stops) and a refrig/freezer (no ice stops) and 200w of solar (with a generator backup). I love my 60 hp because it is ver...

Re: VA - Smith Mountain Lake

We've sailed on both lakes (more on Kerr Lake/more recently)...last time I was on SML was about ten years ago, but it was very nice! There are a lot of little coves to explore and you can get away from the crowds on both. Also, there are established sailing and racing clubs on both if you want to pa...

Re: Where to park the boat in the greater Miami area

Mike, I'd give Dinner Key Marina a call and see what they can work out with you. It's in south central Miami, good resources nearby, next to city hall (we've never had a security problem there), lots of slips and 2x mooring fields on approach. I think it would meet your needs if you could get a mont...

Re: Daggerboard trunk on a 26M

Another possibility on the leaks would be where the rudder lines come down thru the rear of the boat. Based on the location of the water...that would be my guess (which can be easily modified to fix...see mods page).

Good luck...agree with the previous post...check it all out before you buy.

Re: 26m C-head installation pictures?

The C-Head is one of 3 main composting heads made by a former special forces medic here in FL. It is about 1/2 the price of the other two major brands and field repairable using basic materials. Sandy Graves, the designer/manufacturer, made a modified version specifically for the 26m (and adaptable ...

Re: Aluminum Trailer

Ed,

I sold my "old" stock trailer for $1800...so my new, custom only cost $2700 net...maybe you could sell your trailer...and offset? Just an idea...made my new trailer (knowing I would be going long distance) a sure thing.

Re: Aluminum Trailer

I had an aluminum trailer custom built for my 26m. The manufacturer made many 26x trailers previously for a dealer previously listed on this site out of Texas I believe. My 26m caused them to have to develop new templates, but it is a quality trailer (aprx $4500) with submersible led's and nice goal...
