Question Bum Flaps

I learn something new everyday. Just learned about Butt Flaps on the internet.
Sounds like a good idea for the cockpit. Comments?

Re: Anybody tried SeaClear II free nav software?

Seaclear uses a serial port (com1,com2,com3 or com4) not USB port.

Re: Anybody tried SeaClear II free nav software?

If your GPS has a serial interface you can get an adapter for the computer that will give it a serial port. If your GPS has a USB interface you're out of luck.

Folding or Feathering Props on Honda 7.5

I have an older model Honda 7.5 outboard and was wondering if I can put a Folding or Feathering prop on it. How would I select the proper prop?

Re: Carb(fuel flow?) issues with Honda 7.5 outboard

Your problem sounds exactly like what I experienced with the exact same engine. I emptied my gas tank and let it dry out inside, filled it with fresh gasoline and it now runs like a top.

who needs a mast

I have a mast from a Cal 25 and one from a Columbia 26. I hate to sell them for scrap. How might I find someone who needs them.

I think that is a good choice. Cut the length carefully so that it will fill the holes but not too long or you won't be able to tighten the bolts enough to pull the brackets snug. Good luck
