Re: Ericson 30-2 (Transom-hung rudder)

That's too bad... it's a pretty good position for it, esp on a tiller-steered boat. One thing to consider is to put a snapshackle on the mainsheet tackle where it attaches to the traveller car - then...

Re: "Most common" boat - Lake Ontario

BPs recommendations are solid, but the expectation of 'flipping' any boat is, frankly, a long shot in today's market unless you buy cheap and sell cheap.. which generally means you're not starting...

Re: Volvo 2001B 9hp charging

If the engine is running during these checks you should be getting approx 14 volts or better.. so a 12V reading would then indicate that your alternator is not actually charging - the 'battery' light...

Re: is this a Hurley 27'? please help

Even a 'custom' H27 would be unlikely to significantly change underwater profile beyond perhaps a rudder.

Re: Raw water cooling - walk away?

An aside to your RWC/FWC issue..

I really like the CS line.. the tooling was first rate and their attention to detail was good too. Handsome boats - esp the 33 and 36T, the later Castro boats may...

Re: Retiring soon...

You've got 5 years to go... spend then next 5 months figuring out what you don't know, and start to 'fix' that.

Re: I don't think this mast step is correct

Don't think the integrity of the casting/weldment is at issue here.. it looks like a roughly cut-off/trimmed mast was drilled for a pin, and the entire compression loads supported on that pin. If the...

Re: Retiring soon...

Plenty of single engine trawlers that might fit your bill.. but sailing costs less if there's a breeze, and a sailboat generally gives you a better, kinder motion in a seaway, and the motor is really...

Re: Retiring soon...

Along those lines, perhaps a small bit of property in some desirable location and a decent daysailer to keep you occupied (Aileron 28 if there's some money available!)

Re: Should I replace the headstay?

Pretty clear that the stay has been 'unwound' and I think it does need to be changed. Looks like more broken bits on the furler attachment?

Good news is the mechanical terminal end. If those are...

Well... our OP has not checked in in nearly a day and has not responded to any of this. Perhaps their plans have changed??

Re: Anyone recognizes this boat?

Something Scandinavian, I'd guess, narrow beam. My first thought was "Maxi" but I can't find a match. Some of their older models used similar window treatment..

Re: Mainsail twist & traveller position

Re: backing into a slip with single screw

Something like this might work.. looks like the area behind the traveler is a bit of no-mans land anyway? Some ball end joints on the ends of the link could absorb a certain amount of 'tilt'.

Re: Cape Dory Intrepid 9M vs Santana 30 vs others 30 footers

Imagine my surprise when the Cape Dory turns out to be a finkeel/skeg-rudder design!!

IMO you'll enjoy the Cat 30 for the sheer volume, though the G30 and G28 (close relative to the CD 9M) may...
