Hi Bauer10, Did you find what you were looking for since last summer or is this still on your to-do list? I just picked up a '93 Bauer 10 and have rigged it up before, so I could take some photos and post when the weather's nice again.
Piggybacking off of hard-a-ground's original post, I have a couple things I need to do, as well.
Oars - Mine didn't come with oars, so I'm ordering a 7' pair from the original supplier, American Traders. The oar lock receivers are still on the boat
, but I need the rings as well.
Rigging/etc. - I'll need to replace some sheets
and lines, add the random screw, and a new thru-deck fairlead, so I'll be going through that, as well. I wish I had a manual, though I don't know how helpful it'd be.
Retractable centerboard - Mine wasn't working, so I've removed it to find the elastic cord is bad inside. The centerboard housing sits between a couple of Styrofoam boards, which I'll probably replace since they're disintegrating a bit. I'd like something other than Styrofoam, but since it'll likely be partially submerged, I'm not sure what I could use. Ideas anyone?
"step" - The biggest problem with mine is that the receiver for the mast
was broken out, so I'm going to do my first-ever fiberglass
work by repairing and re-glassing that section, also reinforcing it with a couple extra layers of 1708 most likely. Fortunately I still have the "Plug" or whatever it's called.
- Bauer says up to 2hp but I'm wondering if that's due to the weight of an average 2hp? Otherwise, if the weight is in tolerance, there are a few between 2-3hp that give a lot more options. The ones I'm considering are:
- New - Coleman 2.6, Honda
2.3, Suzuki 2.5-3.5, Tohatsu 2.5-3.5, Torqueedo 1103C, and ePropulsion Spirit 1.0 Plus (Evo).
- Used - Honda
n Carry 1.5, or whatever else comes up.
Am I correct to assume that as long as the motor
weight is good and I'm not overpowering it to where there are control issues, higher hp would just be unhelpful and not have any other negative affect? That's all I've seen reported is that additional hp just doesn't help some vessels, but I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who has powered a Bauer 8, 10, or 12. The Bauer website mentions custom electric
motors. Anyone use another other electric motor
