Re: Raymarine I40 Depth Finder

I used the in-hull transducer for my uncored hull. It won't work through a core. I also somehow ordered a version of the transducer with the wrong connector. Easily resolved by splicing the...

Re: Converting a Catboat to a sloop

An example of a catboat sloop is Halsey Herreshoff's 1970s-era Eagle, which I own. It is based on the Herreshoff America catboat hull. The mast is moved aft to just in front of the daggerboard trunk....

Re: Butyl sealing

You want butyl tape, not the stuff in tubes. It is so much easier and very effective. You'll never go back to tube sealant hell.

Re: McGregor 36 Catamaran

The Mac 36 is a fast, fun boat. It's a thrill to sail. Great for daysailing, gunkholing, and light coastal cruising in favorable weather if you're okay with minimalist accommodations. The big open...

I own a Mac 36 in the Florida Keys and love the boat. Key points for me: sailing at 15+ knots is fun!; big, open deck; shallow draft; snug but long berths; taking large groups of friends out for day...
