DtM makes an interesting point that a common service stock of parts for a boat which is so popular makes a lot of sense.
The job really falls to those who sell them so please, as owners, advise your supplier, the factory and THIS SITE of the parts you have damaged. A Mahe36 Owners club could certainly help in reducing replacement costs by bulk buying.
Whats the cost of Copper Coating if six boats in one location all want it done at the same time? for example. This must apply to so many things, nav sets particularly, gen sets, etc
Power to the Sailor.

Hello DtM
the keels are sacrificials.They slide into a groove and are glued .So they can be removed to be rebuilt or replaced .

A few more pictures to help with the sacrificial keel, which is deeper by an inch or 2 in sailing trim and you can ground on a flat surface without both the keel and rudder touching at the same time. Plus this boat has the factory Max Props fitted, must be a speed junky

Starting my Sail Training on a Braodblue 385 with Btunton prop's (See P10 of Props and stuff thread) where we found we could not motor into 35knot wind witha twin screw and diesel cat. It may be the props were undersized, it may be the Brunton's self pitching was getting confused by a short confused sea on a shaloow bed.

I was worried about the props not being up to it but it seems the installed power may be a problem.
Mahe 36's please take note that two ten HP's may not /will not drag you off a lee shore. Put it on your shakedown list. We had sea room, thanks to chance and the lord Neptune (who has more control of things than we do).
My gut feeling is that Brunton and other self pitching props need to be checked out with care. Standard fixed blade props may not misbehave like that but power only into wind is still a worthwhile item on your check list.
Experiences with non-standard props would be appreciated for Mahe and PJ's here.
You lucky skippers who already have a Mahe / PJ please advise those who merely wait.

When the chance presents do take it out and check it out. Loved the style of the Mahe and the Tardis (Dr Who?) interior but finance points me Prout Event wards.
Many Mahe buyers would love to hear the Mahe proved to motor comfortably into a 30 knot wind. I still think it was the props that got confused, just raising a caution until proven otherwise.
Enjoy your lovely boat, and do feed back, I might win the lotto.

the upgrade from 20hp to 30hp volvos on the BB385 is about 5400 usd (as per the option list of BB)....blinds to windows are about 6600 usd so we decided to invest into safety and we ordered our BB385 with the 30hp engines....and we will fix the blinds ourselves....

Slight confusion in my previous, I thought the Mahe had 2 x ten Hp but they are, of course, 2 x 20HP which should be adequate and are comparable or better than other new builds. I become more convinced, without eveidence, that the props were indeed confused and not operating as intended. Fixed props should give a good performance and the main check would be to tie the boat down well and go full throttle. If you get towards or above 3000 revs they may be a bit too small. I'd expect 2200 to 2500 revs with no boat speed, more as speed picks up.
Please bear in mind I'm still an engineer and not yet a sailor.

It is good to see your post, I feel bad for Larry as well, the guy has had little luck since getting the boat. When your back in Florida give us a call. JC, are you planning a trip to the Keys soon? I think we will go in late January, would like to hook up with you.

Scott

To all
Delivered Lonnie's boat-IRIECAT-yesterday to Stuart ( MAHE 49)..great sail and some long motoring up the intracoastal..The more I use them the more I like them !
As of motoring off a leeshore,the twin 20hp will move you ...may be slowly if you have a big sea running but they will.
Propellers: standard fixed blades work well but lot's of drag
Feathering like Max Prop,Gori or Volvo will work as well with very little drag under sail ( and no running gear noise when you are sailing)
