the concept of unsinkable yachts

Watertight bulkheads and compartments are probably the best way to guard against catastrophic collision damage. Amels and a few others have them. It would not be very difficult for even production...

Skookum 34

Without knowing the water line length it''s tough to say but that''s one heavy boat. Won''t do well in anything under 15 knots.

Separate thru-hull and line to stuffing box

The extra water hose is not for "cooling" it is for lubrication to prevent heat build up. A dripless shaft seal must have a bearing surface that adhears tightly enough to the shaft to prevent water...

Separate thru-hull and line to stuffing box

Some dripless stuffing boxes use a setup like you describe to lubricate the shaft. Since it is dripless the shaft gets no lubrication otherwise. If this is the case the stuffing box will quickly wear...

Nobeltec Software

Sulphated batteries

If batteries are only lasting two to three years they are being abused. I would guess they are being too deeply discharged or being improperly recharged or both.

Draft Issue

I am fully aware that Florida and the Bahamas are shallow draft sailing areas but exactly how limited would one be with a 6''9" draft. Where couldn''t you go? Where could you go?

There are no cons to a self tailing halyard winch. Don''t know if you could find a non self tailing winch if you tried.
