Thanks for the replies so far. No vibration noted and only slight movement. I wasn't sure how much movement was normal due to the rubber. Mine is mounted in a stern tube and not a strut so I was a...

boat damage

Were are (were) on Lake Thunderbird near Norman OK. Thanks for the suggestions and keep them coming. Most to the spruce I have found on the net so far has been small pieces for aircraft builders.

A really bad day!

Well the story is that we had a direct hit by an F4 tornado (200 mph winds) on our marina here in central Oklahoma. Our boat was still afloat but the masts were down when we got there a few minutes...

Asking for trouble?

We have just finished a 1 1/2 year total rebuild after our boat ended up on the bottom after the raw water intake froze and broke. We won't even go into that now, but we are thinking of changing the...

To set the stage, a 30ft 12,000lb boat on a 3 axle trailer parked at the top of a long steep boat ramp. Add a borrowed tongue extension and start down the ramp toward the water about 200 ft away....

I have to agree with sailboy21 about how rugged the Rawsons are. I have one of the rare ketch models. I managed to "bump" a sea wall at about 5 kts with the only damage being to the paint and a gouge...

A suggestion

Might I suggest a Rawson 30. They are well built and rugged. They have a capsize ratio of 1.57 and motion comfort rating of over 40. Compare that with the numbers that newer boats have and you will...
