The only advice I have on the name is that it's useful to have something that is easy to say and receive over the radio, and also easy to remember. Two syllables work well on the radio.
I vote "Klptzyxm".

Re: BWY Pedestal Guard + Table for 26X

I can't give you an answer as I don't have one. However, the folks at BWY are very knowledgeable and honest, so you could simply ring them and ask their thoughts on your questions - I'm certain they can tell you, and may even offer tips to make it easier.

Re: Vee Berth Extension

Lol Have you MET a Canadian mosquito? I quote from David Thompson's Narrative about our geography: "not fit for the plough, but admirably adapted to produce Musketoes" I don't think I'd have any blood left slept in the cockpit. “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with...

Re: No mast, I've gone solar...(With gas engine backup)

...and this is a screen shot of his FB entry regarding the boat. Still think it's an X?

Interesting. His post here indicated he’d modified a 26X. Strange that he’d swap to a Mac 25...
Well, did you look at the photos on his FB page? Looks like a 25 to me.

Re: No mast, I've gone solar...(With gas engine backup)

I feel a little odd contacting him for a third party, but you could quite easily make a fairly blank FB account and then delete it when finished with it.

Re: No mast, I've gone solar...(With gas engine backup)

Ken Cooke is still around. He still lives in Lexington, KY and is involved in an environmental group there and has a current LinkedIn as well. He also has an active Facebook page - indeed, he just posted today. On his Facebook page he has an entry from May 11, 2015 showing photos of his solar instal...

Is there any way to re-claim the pictures that were once on his post?
Nope. I checked his code - he used a no longer accessible posting location. Sorry.

Thanks Michael,
I pmed you but it is sitting in my "outbox" though so I'm not sure it has actually sent to you.
Cheers,
Paul.
PM's sit in the 'outbox' until the recipient opens the PM. Once opened it moves to the 'Sent' box.

Cheers,

Re: Anybody recognize this interior mod (26M)?

No pictures from this mod appear in our Mods section. I traced it back through Pintrest, where you found those photos, and it goes to two boat sales places in Australia. Unfortunately the boat is no longer listed, so the photos are gone from those sites. Perhaps you might post on the Australia forum...

Re: Why Do We Need Foam

What an amazingly scary video, Jimmy. Thanks for posting that.

Yes, the Mac has foam for basically one reason - to save your *ss. NEVER REMOVE IT.
