Yes, we're still reading these posts but it's not the highest priority. I'd like to see pictures of your 33' sloop; ours is a '64, hull number 28 (we think). We just put a new Yanmar 3YM20 in (it had a 3GM30) which clearly can overpower the max prop size. This weekend we will install the Harken boom traveler and hopefully raise the mainsail for the first time since she went back in the water. Check our blog at ustoo.leeward.vi. Stay in touch.
