Re: overpropped vs underpropped

The Freedom 38 is a nice boat, the hull is balsa cored as is the deck, the surveyor should tap the entire hull and deck with his hammer and use a moisture meter to check for moisture. I have friends...

Re: How Hard To Push My Perkins

The Perkins Perama M-30 engine puts out 29 hp at 3,600 rpm, that is your maximum rpm. Usually you can run diesels at 75 - 80% of maximum rpm all day long. That would be 2,700 to 2900 rpm. You...

I've logged over 20,000 miles on a 1973 Swan 44, S&S design. Great sea boat, that I'd take anywhere almost anytime. Had it out in a storm we got caught in with 40'+? waves on the way from Bermuda...

As far as I know, the bridge at Sebastian inlet is fixed. I'm not sure what the clearance is but I don't think it is very high(not enough for your boat). You'll probably have to go out at Cape...
