Re: Swallow Coast 250

interesting concept, the swallow 250. It is a bigger boat, that has a with of 254cm. So it is legally trailerable in EU everywhere. But is to say in the small tracks in Italy you will have to drive very very careful. So the boat/trail will be heavier at least 200 to 300kg. So you need bigger cars to...

Re: EV-100 Auto Pilot Install

Just watch his homepage.
If you order you can ask him for programming do move with the fob the AP tiller on standby mode. The fobs are very cheap.

Re: Ideas for trailer bunks

@Tomfoolery
wow, this is way too smart... that there is no load when the boat sits on the trailer at land.

Hop that it will be like this in my configuration by chance :D

I will check out soon. So far I thought of taking out the roller after laoding.

Re: Ideas for trailer bunks

A Question to the bow roller on the trailer: I installed one on the alu factory :macm: trailer, did not tested yet. I hope to lounch the boat at the ramp will get easier. When you trailer long distances do you let the boat sit on that single roll? I wonder if the axle of the roll can get crooked and...

Re: EV-100 Auto Pilot Install

I agree with boat. Much "I am stupid troubles" at the beginning... That will repeat every season at the beginning :D Since I have the remote with special programming from madman I never dive under the cockpit. I can stay in the cabin an watch the tiller arm moving with this special remote. And even ...

Re: EV-100 Auto Pilot Install

Yes you need some extra cables, depending on your installation. You need a cable (normal stile 12V) to get from the unit to the tiller. For the rest you get a set with the raymarine connector cables. I could do the installation with all the came when I remember correct. BUT: Some cables were short s...

Re: Single-handed COB retrieval

Well maybe it's worth to try this: Stop the outboard motor. Bring the victim behind the OB. Bring the victim as much as you can onto the OB. Then tilt the OB in the up position.

Re: bow-boarding from the water possible?

So I had a try with this fender ladder. I used it at the side of an M. Can say it works, but not so happy. I tend now more to this: https://cdn.compass24.de/media/image/f2/a7/80/0199730_r1_FS11ix.jpg But I don't know if it fits the :macm: bow. And the local store does not have in stock at the moment...
