Re: So, I lost a propellor today.

I have 3YM30ís with SD20ís and had a folding prop fall off a few years ago.

Re: Anyone used wisker poles on catamarans

Re: Anyone used wisker poles on catamarans

Hi Dave.
We do this all the time when going close to dead down wind, with no poles. I bring the main halyard to the back of the boom and tighten the mainsheet as a Ďbackstayí.

Re: Seized Allen Bolt Removal - Your Method?

Re: Covering the sail-drives

I do this when we leave our boat for a while. Itís been effective so far in stopping fouling. Never seen any detrimental effect on the leg or prop. The maximum time itís been on for was 5 weeks

Re: advice on the Schionning 1750

I have a wilderness 1320. When I bought the plans and begun building, I didn't have 3 kids. We are now too heavy. By how much I couldn't say. I had to give up worrying about the weight of everything...

Re: Cruising Kimberleys Australia

Re: Jabsco 58500 Lite Flush

I had almost given up on this head after one worn pulley, one exploded pulley and a few snapped belts.

Re: Alternator Belt issue 3YM30

I got one electromaax serpentine kit to test out on our Portside 3YM30 a year or so ago. Beautiful gear.
