Re: New anchor needed

Just got off amazon:

13 lb, fluke anchor (the flukes are 2" longer than my current anchor).
100ft 3/8", 3 strand anchor rode.
8ft of chain. I will look for some longer chain.

This will get me started. :D
Thx

New anchor needed

I have decided to get a new anchor. I decided on a fluke type due to lots of sand in the area I'm at and ease of storing. What is the largest fluke anchor that will fit in the 26X anchor locker? I haven't done a bunch of anchoring but I think this will work for me right now. I just weighed my presen...

Re: My Title shows 26ft yet the brochure says 25ft 10inchs

Nothing yet. Its been right at 1 month since the last communication I figured it being government stuff it would take time. I tried to call the ranger early last week from the number she called from and I left a message, no reply. I plan to call the lady in corpus tomorrow morning and see if she wil...

Re: My Title shows 26ft yet the brochure says 25ft 10inchs

I finally made it by the Texas parks and wildlife office in Corpus Christi and they were more receptive to this problem. She wondered why I came to corpus and I explained about the soup nazi's in Rockport (She agreed with this, apparently they have had some issues :o ). She asked if I could get a ce...

Re: Mast rake, boom position/level/headroom ?

I changed my original 1/8" forestay to a BWY 5/32" and still have the same problem (5/32 is a good recommendation if you don't have one). Measure twice, use different type of measuring instead of the cardboard cutout? I purchased the BWY plate that allows up to 6 pulleys under the mast ste...

Re: Mast rake, boom position/level/headroom ?

I found out early that the Mast rake will control the amount af round-ups if it is set properly. Too far back and you will experience more round-ups. Too far forward it will push the boat leeward, which is undesirable. In the manual it say to have it raked back 4degrees, I used the diagram in the ma...

Re: My Title shows 26ft yet the brochure says 25ft 10inchs

I'm sure at some point I will proceed with a title change. The local office is like dealing with the Soup nazi from Seinfield. Looking at another office about 35 miles away. It gets a couple good reviews for ease to work with :o I need to see if I can do this on-line? I feel good about the info that...

Re: My Title shows 26ft yet the brochure says 25ft 10inchs

I went ahead and got the texas title, (be here in 4 to 6 weeks). Not sure what i have to or should do. So far I will pay an extra $60 a year just because 26 on the title, because of a 2" mistake on the title. Which was given to me by the PO. I have a copy of it. Now it is in a different class 2...
