Re: Running Rigging Installation

The boat is a 1978 so I am pretty sure we only have external halyards, but like I said the old line was cut off so I don't know for sure.

Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

I had a similar experience with a Macgregor 25. But it was well worth the time and money I put in just to learn all that I did. Plus I really loved working on her. I'm sure you will too. Best of luck

Re: what line?

Check Cajunropes.com. I recently had to replace all my running rigging and I used one of their rigging kits. It is quality line, with very reasonable prices.

Re: Outboard Issue

The engine is just unreliable. It doesn't start every time, but when it does it will idle for between 10 seconds to about 2 minutes. When I rev it up it runs longer.

I gapped the spark plugs, so...

Re: Keel winch woes. Is this one good?

Right, I guess I could have phrased that better. Does the winch come with the cable pre-loaded on it already? or did you have to buy that separately?
