Re: Ranger 24?

That's great information, thanks! I'd love to find one of those plugs! But if the boat isn't over-loaded the water doesn't touch it anyway. As for taking the motor out to race: I was told that wouldn't comply with the rules... but I admit I'm not really an educated racer. My motor is a little big for that anyway (7.5 hp Honda) but I'd like to get a much smaller one... just for grins. New sails are on the horizon too. I don't have a chute yet, so that could happen too, though it's less of a priority since I don't race her... yet. I probably will in the future.

As for the "My boat is awesome and yours sucks!" mentality is concerned: I think they're all awesome - but in different ways.

As an aside: Here is a guy taking a bone stock SJ24 around the globe. No comm equipment, no mods and no autopilot of any kind. I hope he survives. You can follow him here...

And if you have a line on a motor well plug for my boat... I'd be very happy to have one!!
