The type of motor you need depends on the conditions where you are sailing. Last season my outboard only ran on one out of two cylinders, I only had problem motoring against strong winds and waves. I am sailing in Norway and definetly needs a extra long shaft. I have a 9.9 johnson sailmaster. One pr...

The same happens when I am motoring at high power. When you reach the hull speed, the bow of the boat will be raised and the aft will be lowered. This is normal. I get some of the water into the cabin as well, but I am not worried about this, I know where it is leaking. If I am sailing fast, quite f...

Stern mount rudder..

Hi,

How does the stern mount rudder perform? Is there big differences from the original rudder? What about the outboard, I guess it has to be mounted not in the midle? Do you have any pictures?

This has happened to me a couple of times. I put a hook (home made from a wire) on the other halyard, and actually it is no that difficult to fasten the hook to the other halyard as the one that is on the top exists where the other enters :) Good luck!

In my previous boat I had propane stove and now I have pressurized alcohol. The propane is easier to light, it burns hotter and you can see the flame. Alcohol is more expensive (in Norway at least), more complicated lighting and does not burn so hot. But I chose alcohol from safety reasons. If you g...

I have now installed the cabin heater (wallas1300). I let the exhuast out in the cockpit (!), because the vent is there protected from wind and sea, and the wall is vertical.

I have replaced the through-hull rudder fittings. And at that point it seems that the hull and the floor is bonded. I guess the flot is bonded, but not the rest of the liner. Wood is used several places, I guess that is the most critical issue. Like in the keel case. But if there is no damages, it s...

Hi, I am considering installing an inboard diesel engine in my Chrysler C22. I wondered if any of you have any experience or knowledge about such a thing? I am considering a Yamnar or Volvo Penta 9-10 HP. My outboard works fine, but when the waves are to big it gets flooded. Best Regards, Haakon

I do not think filling her with water would prove anything. One idea might be to look for discoloring, the keel is made of iron, and any leaks would probably leave rusty traces (leaks are caused by iron dissapaering to rust). The seller might have cleaned this away, but then this might also be possi...
