Re: I have legal/economic questions

I've used very similar rotomolded floats for floating scientific instrumentation platforms. After almost 10 years, they are holding up well. Not as cheap as floats used for floating docks, but...

Re: Convert from solid drive shaft to u-joint

Great info. To those wondering why you'd need something like this, in my case, I've got a 6'x1" shaft, almost all of which is inside the boat. At high RPMs, the shaft starts flexing in the middle,...

Re: Does such a boat exist?

Look at how Corsair folding trimarans do it. Specifically the ones with non-rotating masts (F27). The mast raising procedure on a Farrier design is well thought out and easy. No reason it wouldn't...

Re: F24 vs F27, Corsair 760 vs 880?

The 27/28 will have more room and amenities than the 24, which can be quite spartan in some versions. Some 24's have heads, mine does not. The flip side is weight, you will need a more capable...

Re: Damage at the boat yard. I feel bad for this boat.

Could be worse, I once saw a brand new, just off the ship, Tayana 37 get lifted out of the water with one of the travel lift straps under the prop shaft. The stern tube/cutlass bearing was displaced...

Re: Largest trailer sale boat with diesel

May not be in the budget, but a Presto 30 seems perfect.
Inboard Diesel, shallow draft, with trailer friendly beam and displacement. It has un-stayed carbon fiber masts which should be easy to put...

Re: Arduino and ST50

Most wind speed sensors output wind speed as pulses, where the frequency equates with wind speed. The relationship between wind speed and pulse frequency may not be linear.

Wind direction will...

Re: In production 27 ft sailboats.

Plenty of Corsairs have white sails and never use a spinnaker. They can still do 10 knots with no drama.

The rotating rig requires almost no tuning. much simpler than most monohulls. I can raise...

Re: In production 27 ft sailboats.

After sailing on monohulls for 43 years, I'd vote for a Corsair 880 (https://corsairmarine.com/corsair-880/).

I recently got an F24 and I love it. Fast when you want it to be, stable when you're...

Re: Is Alberg the best production designer ever?

If you are looking at old Albergs, you should probably look at Pearson Vanguards. Over 400 made, a bit bigger than an A-30 but with similar aesthetics.

My wife used to single-hand hers, and we...

Re: Best/Good/Interesting Places to Go/Stop At on US East Coast

It's tragic how many boats pass so close to Cape Lookout, yet don't make the quick detour. It's an amazing place.

Post Re: My wife needs reassurance

So I'm an EE too and had my ABYC electrical certification a long time ago. A few notes:

A good splice will be as good as and last as long as the rest of the cable.
I'd venture that over 95%...

Re: Sail boat engine choice - electric or diesel

If it was me, I'd rebuild that Volvo, fix your fuel leaks, get the injectors tested and serviced. It might be all you need is a better propeller and some gaskets.
Put in good filters, clean/replace...
