Re: cheoy lee 52 motorsailer owners in Aus

Hi DKT

I see the OP wandered off after asking his question. I am also on the lookout for an owner of a cheoy lee 52 motorsailer. If you are still there I have plenty of Qs as Im viewing a 1980 model at the weekend.

How does it handle under sail, motor is it a 50/50 most days or will it really sail in a blow? (can it be solod or with 2?) and at anchor - is it rolly?

Have you tried folding props - do you alternate the twin engines?

Any serious issues to look for? Have you made any major mods? I know the later 53 has an upper helm, forcing a sloop rig. Ive also see a 52 converted for this but I like the benefits of ketch rig for my kind of plodding.

Also - whats all that glass make it like in the heat?

Many thanks
Paul
