Re: Beastly boat to manuever

NolaTom -

That's the boat - mine is a fiberglass sloop - not the ketch - but otherwise it's the same boat.

Beastly boat to manuever

I'm having a terrible time manuevering my full-keel offset prop H-28. She sails beautifully - but when going slow- under power or sail- she's a beast!

I figured out where the leak was coming from- the raw water intake goes from the...

Any input or recommendations would be appreciated.
