Re: Why Do We Need Foam

another idea: Our mattresses all takes full of water and will sink. How about using foam that does not take water? Is it not good to sleep on? If it would work you could fix the mattress with a line. If the boat would sind the mattress in the boat will sit on the highest point inside the boat. Maybe...

In light air, I think the bust hook is a good solution. T
Well I guess in heavy winds it makes no sense to help the genoa having good shape on a butter fly... So a handy very long boat hook seems good If you can get one that fits. Right?

Re: Where to buy Mac 26M in Europe or better import from US?

both. I have this CE Paper and on the Boat there is a CE label. And there ARE changes on the boat following different regulations in USA / Europe. As fare as I can remember: CE/EU wants an electrical bilge pump, and a manual one (not in USA). CE/EU wants stern rails, not necessaire in USA. So there ...

Re: Where to buy Mac 26M in Europe or better import from US?

I imported 2011 a new one, an 26m. Motor bought here. So no problem. The difficult was the trailer. But at the end I managed with the original trailer Alu with new EU tandem axles and lights. If you should get it from USA watch that you have the CE package. What will be very seldom I guess. Or get i...

Re: JIB OR GENOA?

Interestingly enough, I bought a set of the cam car cleats in early spring and never ended up installing them. Maybe I need to dig into my bag of goodies and drag them out. My concern with them was putting all the load of the Genoa on those units. Maybe I worry too much? In any case, I feel a new s...

Re: Advice on buying 26M/X

Well I'm quite impressed. I never thought about raising the Mast by hand on my 26M (having a furled Genoa).
Maybe I will give a try when a second person can control all with the MRS.

Re: 28 Newton Meters too much lower unit oil drain?

when I guess correctly, my merc 60hp says 7.5Nm.
I take the Nm-wrench becouse it is so less. By hand I woul put way too much Nm as I would be afraid of water coming in :evil:

Re: Loose footed main, pros? cons?

yes, I think this is easily doable.

Just put in a slider at the end in the boom, the attach the old sail at the slider. Then pull the sail as ever.

Re: Anchor Chain and Alcohol

My 2011 Merc 60hp is the same. So I put the helseat half an inch higher that I can close the seat properly. just I ask myself if the motor troubles the steering when it is a little in the water when sailing. Means when the motor is disconnected and leans close back the Helm Seat. So the Prop is not ...
