Re: Sault Ste. Marie and macs in north channel

Tigeddis the answer to your question is sometimes. With no rudders and a self added skeg on the back 42 inches of the boat the boat will track very well on autopilot when the ballast is empty. If we fill the ballast it will not track on autopilot. Our boat has about 1000 lbs of stuff since we are do...

Re: Mast and sails for sale.

The 26 X makes a great trawler. Physical limitations is the reason we do not sail. For a easily trailerable trawler the 26X is hard to beat. It is about perfect for 2 people. If you travel long distances a skeg on the rear and an autopilot are indispensable. We just rolled over 10,000 miles in our M...

Re: Trenton Ontario and Trent Severn Waterway

We always put in our logbook where we empty our composting toilet. So we have a record of when and where we put our waste. Also we know of no one who has had their potty habits checked.

Re: Canada rules & North Channel

We log when and where we dump our composting toilet. Then if asked we have a record in our log book. If you do this it may help with the portapotty. Not sure it would help but it might.
