Re: Top Speed?

What is your RPM at full throttle? Is your throttle linkage properly adjusted to give full throttle? What prop are you runnng? Where is your trim set? It should plane with a 50, lightly loaded and no ballast. At least Roger said it would :wink:

Woo hoo!! :!: :!:
And you didn't even have to slather it with mayonnaise to send it thru the companionway! :D
There was a moment, before we figured out to put the throttle at full reverse and move the mast over, when we probably would have slathered it with mayo if it was nearby! :D

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

Then it was just a matter of setting it in place, and getting it on the slides. I was glad I had help during the slide alignment as it didn't go easily. Top pic is in the forward position. https://i.postimg.cc/KKG5Vrts/IMG-3494.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/dDp41CKL/IMG-3497.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/0zqn...

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

Two of my buddies came over this evening and we coaxed the galley in. We lifted it to the side of the cockpit and began moving personnel into the boat. https://i.postimg.cc/vxFb8BYk/IMG-3501.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/DWN7D6t2/IMG-3502.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/YL6kvHj9/IMG-3503.jpg The test fit did no...

Re: Transom Plate

As I understand it, single hull boats, less than 20 ft are required to have the plate you describe. Personal watercraft and sailboats are exempt.

As this seems to defy all logic, I can only assume lobbyists have done their thing for PWC and sailboats. :wink:

Re: Handing over the helm

Do you know what that stain is from? I can't see good detail of it from the pic, but it looks familiar to me. Is it an external stain like spaghetti sauce? Or is ita golden / orange/mustard- /rust-colored and tiny specs aside from the big blotches? I've come across that issue before in both boats a...

Re: Handing over the helm

I've been checking in hourly, Jimmyt, for weeks now to see the video of your galley masterpiece being shimmied thru the companionway!! :D :D Hope your chefing skills are as good as your woodworking! Sorry about that. Few issues slowing me down. First, had to clear a wide path to the boat; done. Mov...

Re: Group buy Mac X or M trailer

Welcome to the Forum! I'm sure one of the X owners can help you out. It might be helpful to post a pic of your trailer since the setup may be different than stock; and the responses are generally better with more info up front.

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod

When your are finished could you weight it without the stove? Would be interesting! Didn't weigh it without the stove, but the stove and gimbal just weigh a few pounds. The complete galley is 173.2 lbs. Maybe BOAT was right. Capsize may be imminent. :D Stock sliding galley is 28 lbs. I'll be intere...

Re: Fiberglass and rub rail repair advice

This is what I used to repair the area around my centerboard trunk where the previous owner had a close encounter of the wrong kind. West marine had the smallest quantity and the color was close enough. You'll probably be able to see it on topside, but it will be better than what's there now. https:...

Re: Yet Another Galley Mod
