Re: Cabin sliding hatch velcro mod

Might want to pull that hatch sooner than later, mine actually broke thru in 2 places and would leak a lot.

See post: http://www.macgregorsailors.com/forum/v ... 01#p242901

I have had the Velcro mod since 2012, still quiet and working.

Re: New tandem axles put under trailer

You might want to check your tongue weight. I added the second axle behind the existing axle, this however added more weight to the tongue (about 410lbs) and my hitch was rated at 350lbs.... so I had both axles moved forward to help reduce tongue weight. http://www.enctrader.com/hardtlefamily/KnotSh...

Here is a whole thread on the subject:

I have been using it for 8 years now. I do all the smooth surfaces, hull and sides. I don't do the cockpit. It is a replacement for wax.
