Re: Best 3-5 longshaft outboard

Thanks for the responses. They've given me some food for thought
I think I need to narrow my criteria a bit

Re: Danica 16 owners Unite!

I should've said the Nordica 16 yahoo site
I think you have to be a member to view it (easy to do, though it might take a day) Tonnes of photos or Nordicas and Danicas. It's about the third or 4th...

Re: Danica 16 owners Unite!

I think you're right about the molds . regardless either boat is just under 14' on deck not including the rudder so the 16' thing is a slight exaggeration. On the Nordica 16 site (which includes us...

Re: Danica 16 owners Unite!

Have you considered a Nordica 16 or a Nordica 20?
My Danica has been out in 20 knot winds max under reefed main and jib. It was managable, a little hairy maybe. The Danica heaves to nicely. I've had...

Re: Danica 16 owners Unite!

They all are, those double looking ports are quite unique!
I have seen a double port version . I suspect the wooden surrounds are an addition.
The round ports on Danica's are a result of the...

Re: Danica 16 owners Unite!

Hi I looked at the photos
I don't think splitting in half is a concern with most Danica/Nordicas
THe metal strip is just a keel protector. Some Nordicas have them running the entire length of the...

Re: Danica 16 owners Unite!
