Re: Puget Sound, San Juans sailing tips and warnings?

"SOME" boats have wells forward of the transom that the outboard sits in. Look up a T-bird among one of many along with I will assume the islander bahama 24 that newhaul has. This does help the prop trying from not going out of the water per say. A deep shaft helps a lot too. BUT, I personally would still prefer an inboard over an outboard of ANY sort, transom hung, or in a well.

Dodger....I must be that every other boat ALex is talking about. Still not sure what a dodger is...........

Five years ago, you experienced a lot of chop because of the wind and powerboats. Your Honda engine did not fit in the lazarette and spent more time with its propeller out of the water than in it. Now you have a Tohatsu engine that sits in a lazarette well, has a long shaft, and is positioned such that the propeller is about 3 feet forward of the transom.

How long is your boat? And how did you get the engine sitting 3 feet forward of the transom?
I have an islander Bahama 24 with an outboard well in the stern lazerete the hole is 13 inches square and the Honda would not fit so it was on a transom bracket

Re: Puget Sound, San Juans sailing tips and warnings?

Does this boat have a dodger? still not sure what a dodger is.......I do recall it is the name of a baseball team?!?!?!?!!

Or is it someone that ignores the question, and changes the subject?!?!?!?!

hmmmmmmmm......

Maybe smacky knows the answer, I hear he knows or attempts to know EVERYTHING! I'd bet on fuzzy before smacky.........

I was thinking more of these Dodgers



By the way, for you youngsters: The "B" on Jackie's cap stands for Brooklyn. the "B" on the other guy's cap strands for Boston.

Re: Puget Sound, San Juans sailing tips and warnings?

Have we all "dodged" the OP's topic enough!?!?!?!?!?

I have to admit, I am a bit biased with my boat, but reality is, any fin keeled boat out there, in good shape, taken care of etc, with an INBOARD, will do fine around the salish sea.

WIth this in mind tho, MANY folks cruise with smaller boats that have out boards, or engines in wells. I know of one couple who have owned a T-Bird for some 20 yrs, and have been from the seattle area up to desolation sound a few times. My boat has been up there with the original owner of 20 yrs, I have not made it as of yet.

27-30 is probably a minimum sized boat with general options most will want for weekending. This length should net you a 2 burner stove, possibly an oven, some kind of enclosed head, possibly a shower depending upon how old etc. Most of these should have an inboard, be it gas or diesel.

Extra amenities like dodgers, bimini's, spinnakers, etc should be based on the how you sail, where etc. Overall, I find not having a dodger is best for me, but at times I wish I had one. I use at dock, a custom cloth canopy that goes over the boom, behaving like a bimini when I am at the dock. Will not allow me to sail worth a dang....but that is another story. I find the dodger would be nice more motoring, especially into the wind and waves.

Good luck on choices and options.

Marty
