I bought my new one from ATN Sailing Equipment | Sailboat Gear (https://atnsailingequipment.com/) in Florida, US.
for 714 USD, including shipping to Norway

Seem to be same quality as original.

Re: Hull

Anyone who have acces to a Mahe on land? I'm designing a wagon for my Mahe, and I need the CC measure between the keels, and the length and width of the keel footprint. Anyone who can help? :Thanx:

Re: Engines

The Volvo D1's have no internal engine zink, only on the propeller and drive.

The drive and the engine are electrically separated, and I've been told you should be able measure at least 600 ohms...

Correct. You would ruin the front wall of the shower.

I would definitely follow your own advise: Go for the 18" 2-blade. I would have done so myself, if I didn't already have the 3-blade hubs. The 50% extra for the 3-blade (is it really that much?) is...

Re: Sail Drives and Props

According to Volvo, the D1-30 should be propped to reach a max RPM between 2800 and 3200. The 3250-3300 reached with the props installed by FP are too high, and I think the 2950 I now get with the...

Re: Sail Drives and Props

Then you would have 3 positions:

2) -open from leg to...
