Re: Any seaworthy swing keel, row-able boats, with cabin.

Do a search on Sculling oar sailboat, or yuloh sculling oar, it will make rowing easier.

Re: Gauges for Yanmar YSB-8?

The sending units from later model Yanmars will fit the YSM. It is a common upgrade. Check with Mack Boring or Torrensen or Hoye Tractor.

Re: Repowering with an electric engine?

Re: Sailing The Point Pleasant Canal

Dave, at all aboard (NJ boat hauler.com) is a great guy and does a great job. He moved my boat in 2010. If you decide to go that way, he's the man.

Re: Is a WW Potter 15 Good To Sail NYC Area?

Tripl,
Where in the NYC area are you? As mentioned, traffic is a bigger challange that currents. A 15' boat with a small outboard may not be the best thing to dodge super tankers in. That being...

Re: are these blisters

Agree with with both opinions. Still, a few seconds with a marlin spike or reasonably sharp nail will give you a more definite answer. Wear eye protection, just in case.
