Re: Bristol 30 up to 34

This is one of those situations where you can move, deal with it and/or tell him about it. I hope it's safe to assume that the guy was not doing anything on purpose, other than cooking some BBQ.

For what it's worth, I installed my radar scanner on the mast without unstepping. I installed with the stick up. It takes a few trips up and down the mast (must do in the water). The only...

Why not the mast? After lots of research, that's where we mounted ours on our Bristol 38.8. What it came down to after doing the research was that the added height on the mast gave better...

D=RT

Just about everyone has a handheld GPS to record speed these days. I imagine that your 16' sailboat goes at least 3 knots, which would take 1 hour if you are going just a few miles down the...

You have to take the lower unit off to access the impeller. It's a lot less scary than it seems. Remove the linkage, undo a few bolts and it slides right off. There maybe a bolt under the little...

I used to have a P26 and if I didn't adjust my standard shaft Honda 9.9 just right, the prop would hit the top of the rudder. I don't think that you can go with a long shaft.
