I guess no one is on this site anymore.

Canadian Thanksgiving is next Monday. I was foolish in not checking my sources for accuracy. Shame on me.

On another note; IS ANYONE OUT THERE!

Re: Anyone purchased BWY rudders for an M somewhat recently?

Ix,

What you sent is a teaser. :D

Explain why you believe the one’s you described to be superior; who is this guy in Texas?

Anyone purchased BWY rudders for an M somewhat recently?

BWY has two different rudders on their site. Is there enough of a performance difference to prefer one over the other. After fifteen years, mine are beat up. Need to see response from someone who bought either from BWY, or, if Cheryl is watching.

Re: Advice needed

A time tested way for making a sail easier on spouses who don’t enjoy healing ( I’m just guessing that is the problem), is to just let out the main sheet. A smoother sail, and happier crew. It just takes time for skittish crew to feel comfortable. Of course, I could be totally wrong about your situa...

Re: Lightning????

The long and the short of it is that nothing has been proven to work on a boat against lightning. Each bolt of lightning contains up to 1,000,000,000 volts of electricity. That’s one BILLION :!: I believe years ago I would see Cape Dory’s at boat shows; their advertising let people know that they ha...

Re: New winch for 2007 Al trailer

I replaced my winch with a Fulton F2. Now I have a 2005 steel trailer, but I am sure you can find out if there is a different configuration of mounting screws.

Re: Where is my leak coming from?

Where it is dripping is not necessarily the source. As we all know, water will flow to the area of least resistance. Have you tried feeling, or blotting to find a trail? You say the boat is completely covered with a tarp. Are there any exposed areas? Are there any holes in the tarp? If you saw puddl...

Re: Love me my Honda BF50

I have a 2003 Honda 50 on my 2005 :macm: . The only challenge I have ever had was finding a repair source a few years ago when I noticed there was no pee stream when I started the motor. I was three hundred miles from home. There was only one place to check it out, and it was not close. Honda just d...

Re: Slip storage

Several years ago I read in a post on this site about running a line (outside of the life line Stanchons) from the bow to the stern. It does come in handy both when docking and leaving the dock. On extremely windy days, having that line to use as a handle, was what kept Nice Aft from being blown awa...

Advice needed from 50hp Honda M owners about prop

I needed to get a prop repaired (missing a chunk), but I was told that a new prop is a better idea. OK. I have no problem with that, but before I go ahead, what is the best prop for an :macm: with a 50HP Honda. I have read many post over the years, but I believe most, if not all, did not apply to a ...
