I don't have the motor moount template, but I have templates for hiking strap, cleats and the spec sheet with some diagrams. Can you use any of this?rayos said:Would appreciate anyone with info on the boat especially where I might find a template they used to locate motor mount backing on the transom. Would pay good money for that. Thanks in advance, Ray
GregScuba will certainly enjoy sailing a DC. She was my first boat (built 1982) and learning companion during 4 years on Lac Champlain, Alburgh VT, where winds may change suddenly and surprise many sailors. The perfect choice, for me, at least! I am now looking for new challenge and have considered for a while upgrading to a faster 18 footer such as P185 but can't see myself without my DC ! At this point, I'll rather try to add a spinnaker in order to maintain the excitement and push her a bit further. The spi was an option. So if anyone has a spi (with all riggings) for a DC, I am interested.Just happened upon this thread...
I own a DC which I have had for a number of years. It is a 1979 vintage. I do not use her as often since acquiring my larger Hunter which I keep here on the Chesapeake Bay. Nonetheless, have included some photos on my Flickr site. If you wish to access them, send me a note back and will send you the link via email, as posting links in this message forum seems to be against policy. The DC is a great little boat. The photos include motor mount and rigging.
one problem will be that the last one was made in the 1980's so anything original that you can find, will be close to 30 years old.New to forum and sailing.
I realize this is an old post, but hopefully you might still have some info on the Designers Choice 15.
I just purchased my first sailboat... Any information you have regarding diagrams, manuals, locations to purchase parts, Motor mounts... would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
I am just the opposite. I assembled the boat so when I take it on the water no one knows that I DON'T know what I am doingI watched his video's. It is helpful to see someone assemble the boat.
I want to assemble the boat at home, before I take it to the water... just to verify I know what I am doing..
