Re: 26D sink drain leak. Connect to daggerboard trunk?

Howdy. Yeah, as our boats age there are certain problems that usually show up, and that fitting getting loose is one of them. The through-hulls also sometimes begin to leak. As for draining properly, I've never seen a 26S, so I can't comment on that, but I've never heard of anyone sending it to the ...

Re: New lift for my 26x

We’re not up there yet, Guy, but I expect we will be in the next few weeks. Our cottage is on the tip of Point Au Fer, and overnight anchoring around the Point from us in King’s Bay is quite lovely.

My wife said that she liked the 26X better than the 26M, so we have the 26X. Therefore the 26X must be better.
Yeah, I'd stick to that story, Bill. Much safer.

Re: How Robust are the MacGregor Rudders?

Uncle Pennybags, aka The Monopoly Man, never had a monocle. At least not as drawn (ever) by the manufacturer since it first came out. Indeed. Me with a student, Oct 2015. She was a Hawaii snow globe. (Glasses were necessary for me to survive, however!) https://i.postimg.cc/zv549Z92/Halloween-2015.j...

What, the rest of the moderators are unfriendly? :wink:
