Re: How does the marine industry price?

Re: Just set sail


To some extent it depends on which Oday you guys have. However in general your husband is correct. Absent very high winds (in excess of 50kn) or wave action, it is almost impossible for a...

Re: What license should I pursue?

Unless you already have substantial amounts of sea time this is not going to be possible. At a minimum to operate in the US you would need a OUPV license, but this restricts you to no more than six...

Re: P26 Genoa track and cars

Re: ilc 40 conversion

There are a number of boats that have gone to a Farr 40 rig, square top main, split backstays, mast head kites, and turbo poles.

Re: Trolling motor to mooring

Very roughy numbers (and be warned electric conversions aren't my strong suit).

A 45lb thrust motor drawn up to 42amp.

Re: Trolling motor to mooring

How big of a battery does the dinghy have?

I used a 45lb trolling motor on my Olson 30' for a while to get in and out of the harbor. It would get the boat to about 3kn after a while. On a small...

Re: old/new - displacement/planning

They do. They actually flip them over in a marina with a crane and test them that way. With the keels canting to 40 degrees it isn't that hard to flip these things back over. For most of the boats...

Re: Outhaul repair/replacement

That is one seriously old school system. For what it's worth I would go to an internal cascade system with a clew strap. But there are a number of places to get those sheaves. Zephyrwerks - The...

Re: what type of fitting do I want at my outhaul car

A 1/8 or 3/16 amsteel line with an eye splice is what you need to replace the wire. You could splice it in place pretty easily or get a d shackle to attach it.
