Re: Bottom paint

You wait till it dries, then move the hull enough to paint the missed areas. Can be a bit of a pain. 8)

Installing new rub rail :)

Re: 26 M/X overall length

Ok, the length is 25" 10" - you don't count the outboard. If you do, add another 18 inches. You need a long shaft outboard. 8) Interested in getting 26 power sailor, either m or x. I checked with my local marina, the overall length limit is 28ft, otherwise I'd have to go to a 30ft slip. Qu...

Yeterday I am noticed that the block of my MRS :macm: is completely not working anymore. It does not turn under load. The bearings are cracked.

What kind of block shall I buy? What loads? What kind of bearing?


Thanks all

In 25 knots and above, it's miller time :wink:

Re: Question on genoa usage

That particular time it was the only sail up . Had boat speed around 6.5 downwind. Really love that sail easy to drop and tie down whe...

Re: Changing trailer tire size

How about some 5 ft - 6 ft tires like you see at auto shows? Make it easy to get under the boat on land. :)

Re: Question on genoa usage

Heeling at 15 knots is more of a function of your main, not your genoa. 8) Howdy folks. I had my local sail shop make me a 125% hank on genoa to be used for light air cruising. My plan is to use this for winds <10 knots and switch to my stock jib at anything above that. I'm curious what it's like us...
