Re: Bilge pump location

Hello Darmah. On my 77 c26 witch I believe is in the stock configuration the bilge pump is located below the access hatch in the aft cabin, and the through hull is right by the sink drain on the port side. Rember to put a big arch in the line on the bulkhead behind the sink so water cannot come in ...

Clip On Towing Mirrors

Having tried several of the $30 clip/bungee strap types, and being completely disappointed, I went up in price and bought a pair of these for around $120. They clip over the window slot, and under the door, then there's a strap you tighten up http://products.cipausa.com/product/cipa-11650-door-mount...

I'd find a heated garage to put it in for a few days and see what happens and with the weight off the bunks too.. I had this issue with the Cal 21 due to the bunks being too narrow and for that reason all the load was on a narrow bunk edge depressing the hull. On that boat the oil canning never wen...

I'm not sure what he's including and what the price was. Boat is on a trailer without keel and keel pin in one pic; you can't remove the keel with the boat on the trailer, so why was it put back on the trailer without the keel re-installed ? Also no mention of mast, sails, rudder, etc. A nice set of...

great work. I hope I'm wrong, but you may have a problem with your sonar transducer. I thought I'd read the hulls are a honeycomb rather than solid? Shoot through transducers have problems if it's not solid fiberglass. good luck Having once dropped a spinning at warp speed and throttle locked drill...

Considering the trailer, the outboard, and the furler - I would go for it myself, assuming the boat has no other major issues you've found. Of course when it comes to boats, I get a bit unsound judgement-wise, lol.

Hard to verbally describe how the keel fits in that pocket, but I'll try... Shouldn't be much effort at all to crank up - my first impression is that the keel head is jammed in the trunk by all the growth. That head part is designed to wedge in there a bit anyway - when the keel is all the way down ...

AS EE said, you might do better just measuring what you have for standing rigging and get a sail that is close to fit! As an example I purchased a brand new mizzen sail off a large ketch. Used it as a main for a C22! Worked perfectly as the sizes were almost a perfect match! Saved a ton of money ov...
