Re: Lead versus Iron Keel

Yam - I would not base the decision to buy a boat based upon the keel composition. As the thread has established, lead is easy to maintain, but iron isn't difficult. It's a keel - a huge hunk of...

Re: Lead versus Iron Keel

Yam - I agree with Mad. Maintenance is the issue. The lead keel requires less, while an iron keel requires more. I am not a fan of spending hours grinding the keel, to get to bare metal, then...

Re: Oxford, MD

Net - unless you need shore power, the Miles River outside of St. Mike's (off Parrott Point) is a good anchorage. You will need plenty of rode, as the water is 20ft deep, and a dinghy to get in.

Re: Yanmar still overheating

Frencha - check out this site - it is for the saildrive output, but it a great resource for you to help you get around. The heat exchanger is the bundle of brass tubes.

Re: Considering PSC for family of 4

Outbound - We looked at IP several years ago, the admiral disapproved.

Safety / security is a consideration, as brokesailor points out, and is one of my considerations as well. Not that I plan to...

Re: Considering PSC for family of 4

Outbound - thanks - I thought that I was just a lousy skipper. The catamaran is a nice idea, but I'd have trouble finding dockage. OceanGirl & Dog - your opinions and links are very informative. I...

Re: Considering PSC for family of 4

Re: Considering PSC for family of 4

Thanks guys - I appreciate the input. So the best solution is TWO boats! One for fun in the bay and one for offshore use.

Re: Considering PSC for family of 4

Brian -

The main features are the off wind performance, freeboard. It also appears that the overall construction is superior, although I don't have any structural problems with mine. Several gel...

Jeff sf1

Make sure that you change the lever at the mast from RATCHET to FREE to unfurl the sail.
Then open the rope clutches on both of the reefing lines and the outhaul. Pull the outhaul and...

Re: Yanmar still overheating

Make sure your prop is clear. To do this, place the transmission in neutral and increase engine speed, slowly to 3200RPM. If it does not overheat, you need to pull the boat and check for barnacles,...
