three blade prop

Ken
Does your boat have a full keel? If so, I don''t think the prop change is going to make much difference. From talking to full keel boat owners, common opinion is they all back down like a...

MaryBeth,
I am another "shallow" male and have been following the interesting banter on this subject. I''m sure the "homely" remark was quite tounge in cheek. The problem with this e-mail type of...

I have heard nothing but good from newer Tayana boats. Older versions of Taiwanese boats had black iron fuel tanks which with age can be problematic. Search the internet for Tayana owner website for...

three blade prop

Ken,
From my limited experience with a two blade prop they have less ability to provide thrust in both forward as well as reverse thus less manuvering ability. I would imagine that to fully realize...

Perkins 4-108

I agree with Dave,
I have 4-108 in my Morgan 382 1979, displacement of 17000 lbs, three blade prop. I burn .75 gallons per hour @ 2400rpm which pushes me along nicely at 6.5 knots in flat water....

Beginners rigging question...

Joe,
If you wish to run a topping lift I don''t see any reason why you can''t. The lift is controlled at the mast not the end of the boom. I used to own a 23''er and had that puppy rigged like a...

Joe,
The "other stay" you speak of is called a topping lift. This is a line that attaches to the end of the boom, goes to the top of the mast and passes through a small block then down to a cleat...

Size Does Matter

I agree with Don. Not to say that sailors are a poor lot, but seems to be more $1M+ poweryachts out there than $1M+ sailboats. So I would imagine, having seen these young buxom beauties on large...
