Re: Freedom Mast Pros and cons

Re: Can We Bareboat Charter in BVI's?

Rather than ask on this forum whether you have the credentials to charter a boat, why not ask the charter company you would like to use? Most companies will have you fill out a simple resume and...

Re: Yanmar 2QM15 Cooling Maintenance

When was the last time you replaced the two zincs in the block? If they are very worn they can fall off the stud and pieces could migrate into your cooling system. I don't have a manual in front of...

Re: Bigger is better & faster?

Yes they could easily pass you at twice your speed with the same wind. Read about Steve Dashew's Deerfoot designs or the Maltese Falcon.

Re: High out put alternator

Re: Seldon In-mast furler

davidpm if you look at the slot in your mast and the mainsail you will see that it furls counterclockwise. If you put the wind slightly on the starboard side (maybe 5-10 degrees) with the traveler...
