Re: 26X Rudder Aluminum Bracket

Hi

I did, and I have 2 new ones and 2 use,d but I am in Europe :(

IDA rudders don't fit on the aluminum brackets.

If you change to SST you must change everything...

It is expensive...

If you can't find in the US I can send you one, but I need to check shipping cost and a fair price.

They do exactly what you described... I would remove the centerboard to check the bracket, the pin and the hole in the...

Re: Is version C, S or D better sail than ver M or X

Hi

Just one personal opinion...

Downwind a :macx: is an incredibly fast SAIL boat.

It can plane almost above the water ...

But it needs an experienced crew to do it...

Re: 26X Trimaran Idea

Hi I tried something like that with my sit on top ocean kayak.

Most chartploters have sound out contacts...

"Beep beep" "lights on" and we see what happens on the chart.
