Re: De-powering to 10-25 hp ob motor?

Therefore, it may be more suitable for my next motor to have just enough power for full displacement mode + a little extra in reserve for super windy days and power through squalls. I ran a honda 50 for a few years, then suzuki 90 for a few and then suzuki 20 on my :macx: . The 90 was fun for after...

Re: advice on new sails for 26x

Take a look at the descriptions on this page, they are specific to :macx: sails and do a good job of describing the different features. http://shop.bwyachts.com/category-s/112.htm The standard jib is 110% and genoa 150%. There have been debates on which is preferred. My experience from having both i...

Re: Need replacement mast for a 26s

Not sure if the search still works, but I replaced my X mast which is the same as the S with one from a nacra5.2 beach catamaran, it was almost the same. A few have used beach cat masts since they seem to be the easiest to find and closest in size. Used they usually go for around $200.

Re: Mac 222

I would check ebay & craigslist for something used. Find something close in size and modify it as necessary. Would be quicker and probably less expensive than building.

Re: Garmin GPSMAP or ECHOMAP

Both have NMEA 2000 so should do what you want. I would email or live chat garmin to ask about the specific radar and wind transducer you want to hook up. Largest difference I see would be if you want touchscreen or buttons. I kinda like the buttons when bouncing around, others like touchscreen. If ...

Re: Outboard tachometer?

I have had a few, they all seem to work fine, even the cheapest $12 digital tiny tach. I like them for the hour meter. Even though they are supposed to be waterproof mine were not and ruined by rain, hence buying a few 8) I bought one with a temp probe/alarm last time. Has a little ring that goes un...

Re: Terminal Fuse Block

The blue seas terminal fuses are clean way to do things. These are a fairly cheap and easy way to protect a few runs coming out of a battery and work as a disconnect too. Come in a couple sizes/configurations. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71qyFGF1K4L._SL1500_.jpg https://www.amaz...

Re: Cockpit Cushions - Again

I has memory foam layers and boasts comfort. Probably won't drain as well as dryfast, but we rarely allow them to get wet. It's a bit spendy, however, I spend a lot of time sitting on these things. If you put them away when not in use I would consider just a standard open cell foam (lux or hd36) th...

Re: For those who like music while sailing

I'm scared to cut hole through the hull and I don't like any of those place for the risk of leakage. I had the same feelings so I mounted a set of waterproof inspection ports first with the speakers behind them. They stay sealed and covered out of the elements when not in use. https://ae01.alicdn.c...
