Re: Buying Outside Continental US?

Check the internet listings of boats for sale and already in the islands. Many vendors are desperate to sell, while there boat turns at anchor. The marina and you can inspect them for sea worthiness,...

Re: Sail Drives?

I knew the Kalinas from Lachine! You still haven't bought a boat yet! Look for a free one with a trailer.

Re: Propeller shaft, coupler and struts

The coupling is finished. The stuffing box and shaft maybe salvageable. Then change the cutlass bearing, and stuffing. Now if your lucky, and the strut survives the removals, add some fiberglass to...

Re: 1 inch prop on 25mm prop shaft?

Yes anyone running a loose prop would be out of their mind.
Buy a used one. You could be 11X7 RH X 25mm.

Re: 1 inch prop on 25mm prop shaft?

The difference is .4mm. Not too much of a difference. The taper has a greater significance, but the keyway takes a lot of the force. The nut should be metric though. I would use a readily available...

There must be 7 to 9...

Re: Maintenance on a swing keel

DS22 I suggest you consult a shipwright before you start. A 5/8 bolt and a hammer shouldn't have the power necessary. The best shipwright in the West Island is available on a consultation basis.

Re: Prop Dilemma

I think a 17X10 pitch would be a good size for you. Shops can repitch to 9'' and maybe a bit more to 10". So anything over 9" should come with an improvement in key life, and get you to hull speed....

Re: Starting engine with charger on

A charger is supplying up to 1.7 volts over the batteries 12 volts. That's why your starter springs to life, and may have negative consequences. Shorter starter life.
Since you start in the cold...
