Nice job mate.

Couple of questions ....

Do you know why Ruschcutter ?

You only use auto pilot ? No wind vane ?

Do you find the AP sucks up the juice ?

Nice work.

Just curious: How long had she been in the water to leave the bottom looking like this?

Hey hey

The guy who owned her in Sydney in 1985 ish named her after some bay down there. The AP does burn up the juice but it has not been an issue as of yet.


Hartley,

Its been 2 years and about 3500 miles and one of the photos shows the black left after the spray clean.

thanks for the comments guys. (I am a little biased)

Boring. Now here was me thinking there was an interesting story behind the name.

Previous owner complained about the power consumption and relied mainly on the wind vane. I'm not finding such a huge drain but that with running the donk an hour a day. At sea I doubt we'd want to run the engine but may have to for that extra charge. OTOH, I'm wondering if I sail her a bit looser than they did so there is not as much weather helm.

Have to say I do like the look of her mate. Peterson 44 right ? Handsome boat.

I'm not finding such a huge drain but that with running the donk an hour a day. i think you always find you use more or less power than you expected or worked out!!!at sea i doubt we'd want to run the engine but may have to for that extra charge. Otoh, i'm wondering if i sail her a bit looser than they did so there is not as much weather helm. there are things to look at to reduce weather helm - and this will reduce ap /wind vane work - but i am talking to the converted, i know..

have to say i do like the look of her mate. Peterson 44 right ? Kp46 thank you - we get somewhere 2' faster than the 44... Handsome boat.uh huh

As you say preaching to the converted. Getting that balance right is a goal worth pursuing.

Sorry for trying to steal those two feet .. not to mention disenfranchising Kelly ... mates of ours have a 44 ... other than 24" what are the differences ... something about the stern maybe ?
