Re: Pilothouse Variations -- Boreal

Yeah but the last creature of Mr Perry is a performance boat, I guess there is something more apart from the beauty ...

IMHO, double enders are ugly but functional. The best eye candy were the old CCA designs. The plumb bow racing machines today also have their own beauty; but double enders? Nope. Had one for 30 years for safety and security, not because it was good to look at.

Re: Pilothouse Variations -- Boreal

[QUOTE=noelex 77;2145635

I have never owned a boat with hydraulic steering, but an autopilot system that drives a hydraulic pump would mean that a failure of the hydraulic system (leak etc) would disable all steering. Not ideal.

Perhaps I missing something, but I don't see a hydraulic system as a plus from the point of view of installing an autopilot.[/QUOTE]

My 3 fold steering system is quite bullet proof

1.... Mechanical chain and cable for outside steering on large wheel for good feedback

2 ..... Electric Hydraulic pump and ram to a Ball joint on steering quadrant for autopilot control at both steering stations.

3...... Pilothouse hand steering wheel drives a manual hydraulic pump. takeover switch for a bypass solenoid isolates the need for the Electric pump while autopilot remains on standby

Yes my boat has a scoop which was welded on by a previous owner. It's is quite flat, flatter than it would be if it faithfully followed the lines if the rest if the hull. It slaps horribly in light winds with following sea.

When I get back to the boat in September the angle grinder and cutting disks will be in action - it's coming off. The boat will look better, it'll save a lot of weight hanging off the back and give me space for a decent swim ladder alongside the Aries .
