Re: Almost did it again! LOL!

Scott, I walked away from a cabin cruiser project last month, just didn't feel comfy with the money exchange and the paperwork. Found out later that type boat has some real horror stories for deck and stringer rot. Cars will keep you busy ! Loading the Mini Cooper S on the car trailer tomorrow (like...

Great link and info.. At the cost of a Signet replacement tho, I would start fresh with more up to date equipment. But if you bought the Signet Depth Meter I'd think you'd want the transducer too. Knot meters being a mechanical device, a GPS is probably a better choice as well. The two of them are a...

I think it is the bolt and sleeve that I'm missing. No dimensions for the bolt or sleeve in the diagrams that I can see. Any one have those? I checked my C26 and I thinks its about the same as a C22. Bolts is a 1/4"x2". Space in between checks is 1 1/2". The sleeve over the bolt is whatever you com...

Looking at the diagram nothing seems to be missing. There is a bolt and sleeve around it inside the tube/cheeks where the tube meets the cheek - that's what the rudder up pull line goes around. Perhaps that's it. Or its that Rudder stop kit that's also not shown In case you haven't seen in there are...

What you see is Monte has cut out the sole right where the steps land. So the wall at the top is that little bulkhead under the companionway and behind the steps. The bump you see at the bottom of the pic is where the keel pocket ends after it disappears into the sole behind the winch stand. As you ...

I plumbed it to the galley sink drain. This puts the bilge pump intake at about the same level as the cabin sole, so it isn't terribly useful for draining the depths of the bilge. I just wanted something that might buy me a few minutes if I had an emergency with the keel cable tube. We had the same...

There is a bulkhead from sole to hull just behind the Keel winch stand. It contains the concrete ballast pour. (Actually on EE and Aislin Girl 1 there was about an inch of space between the sole and the bulkhead, which has a nasty consequence of water getting forward under the ply sole and rotting i...

Hello all... This is my second 26' and I "seem to recall" that there was an access plate under the companion way steps to get to the bilge. No real access plate there at the actual foot of the steps, unless one was added later - however by removing the panel under the stern berth you will see the r...

I'm inclined to agree. We had a day of buffeting high winds, and there are scratches on the mast. I probably missed something in rigging, the lower end got loose, and whipped around till it pinched and broke the retaining ring at the upper end and it's all in the water. :oops: Oh well 121.75 to Hutc...
