Re: Window Trim

The :macx: head also serves as an excellent wet locker when then need arises - fenders, cushions, raingear, extra lines, etc.

Re: New Furler Install Question

I have a CDI FF2 furler on my 2001 :macx: . My overall forestry length is 27 feet 1inch. Your actual wire length will need to be more to account for thimbles and swage clamps. Additionally, the turnbuckle inside the furler drum will adjust to vary the length. My luff extrusion length is 25 feet 10 i...

Re: Advice needed

So, Mike… It seems that you have the passion and desire to do something that will be out-of-season and away from home and your concern is losing limbs to the $795-$1300+ (x2) cost. You now have only 3 months to rephrase that challenge into the cost being an investment in your future! Having only spe...

Re: Using the main sheet as safety while raising mast

When I was getting to know the MRS on my :macx:, I followed the suggestion of this forum to secure the furler drum to a bow cleat with a bungee cord, which keeps the foresail from wandering while raising the mast. Eventually I modified a wooly carwash mitt to wrap the furler drum to prevent it from ...

I'm surprised that more Mac Sailors haven't contributed to this thread :o
Are you not passionate enough about your Mac to write something here :?:
Yup.
Life changes and have run out of Mac steam. But I do check the threads every day.

Re: cutting a vent hole in the fuel locker

My :macx: has plexiglass access panels on the ceiling of the aft bunk in the vicinity you are asking about. Remove the panel(s) to remove the foam blocks. The fiberglass thickness there to the fuel locker is no more than 1/4", if that. I utilized this access when mounting a fuel/water seperator in t...

Re: Another water ballasted trailer sailer

Don't get your hopes up - that information is four years old. The company has only produced the Malbec 18. Heraldo Norberto Ruesch, designer of the Malbec 18, recently said about the Ventura 2300: I do not know the development of the boat Due to lack of commercial loyalty from my partner, I separate...

Re: Bilge drain?

None of the Mac boats have bilge drains. If I were dealing with your issue, and I have in the past, I'd first do what you're doing now. I've been able to remove frozen water from the outer bilges by lifting the ice out. If you can help the melt process with light bulb, heat lamp, heat gun, maybe eve...

For several years, I've been using the Helio Pressure Shower by NEMO Equipment. I prefer it over the typical solar shower bags for it's durability and functionality.

Re: Glue for 26X head door edging

Mine was made of a 'durable' polyester fabric that I hung on the cabin side of the head door. A worthy...
