Re: Rudders up when motoring

I'm shure you can use your rudders down at speed up the mac will go to planning. And this is till 6kn. You also sail at these speeds.

Above that that mac goes towards planning. And then the rudders must go up. But with 30HP this will not happen I guess.

What is your speed you want to motor?

Re: Motor well scupper.

What is exactely your problem/concern with the factory stile?

As long as you don't come 3 inch higher obove water line it does not look as an improvement.

What do you want to be better after the mod?

Re: THE BIG SUPPORT ARCH ON THE AFT - DRILL HOLES?

remember the arch has 4 wholes where it is bolted to the boat. And even more there is the most stress... And the wholes go though both sides of the tube.

The whole that you will drill will just gon in 1 side of the tube.

I guess it will be no problem.

Re: daggerboard 26m

well looking forward to see your photos!

Don't make the new one too strong. Better the DB breaks than the :macm: trunk.

Best would be to get DB from an other owner to make the mold...
