Re: J22 sailing

You must have an outboard. A long shaft, 2.5hp to 3.5hp, 2 or 4 stroke, on a retractable bracket. Don't leave home without it!

Re: What would cause this?

Re: Electric repower ideas

I did the conversion.

Re: Kiwiprops problem (with video)

Re: Thawing frozen engine

"you are not likely to have any damage." I would say the opposite. When water freezes, it expands the most in the first few degrees below the freezing point. So I suggest you start the next season...

Re: Canadian Maritimes, winter 2015

Mahone Bay is very large so choose a shipyard in either Chester or Lunenberg.

Re: Synthetic Motor Oil for my Diesel?

It used to be, not to use synthetic for two reasons. If you burn a lot of oil, it was expensive. But not now. The other reason is if the engine is shut down for long periods of time, like the winter,...
