Re: Ruddercraft / Idasailor Rudder problem - cant lift it ou

Make sure the sheets are outside the shrouds and you use the cockpit track for the lead, the wind will do the rest.

Re: HOW COME THEY DON'T TALKS TO US?

Totally agree with the above. I have my boat for 2 years now. This site is a goldmine, I did tens of mods on my boat inspired or just copied after what other people did. I am to damn sorry and lazy and I do not post. But, I have lot of respect and appreciation for those who did.

Re: Mac 22 - how to setup double berth?

Yes, It will support 2 people. The table comes down in a groove on each of the benches.
I discovered that the back support of both dining area benches and the one on the side bench fit just right to make the bed. Never used it though to sleep overnight.

You have about 2 days between the rides. About 50 hours available to put back the 150W. Soooo, you have to charge some 10 W p...
