    Motor mount size question

    Oh dude, you have the fancy plastic mount...I am quite jealous, but no way am I paying $150 for a block of ...whatever that stuff is! :) On my 26, the transom cracked at bottom part of bracket after bounce around in slip for years with the weight of a modern 4 stroke 15 hp. I totally...

    Motor mount size question

    Great! The one in pics isn't square, it's like a triangle dropping into a rectangle. I think I'm going square or with a rectangle. I have 2 hp honda. You will be way good with a 2.5. I've used my 2 hp to push my 26 cruising boat when my 15 hp was in shop. You will def do hull speed. So...

    Jib Hank Installation

    I read it just fine and found it to be a silly comment and who says MPH when discussing wind speed anywho? If she had said these hanks didn't work well in Force 5 winds, I still would have disagreed, but we here in Annapolis are quite serious about two things, Monohulls and the proper usage of...

    Motor mount size question

    Ok, Ive found that this is the only motor mount setup that will work for the 140, so Im going to buy the mount for $100, but not buy the plastic block for another 150. So is there anyone who could give the measurements for the mount so I could make one please? Thanks!

    Motor mount size question

    Oh I did. They said it was two parts. 240 total. Plus tax. Far too much. It's cuter than the bigger one from west marine, but over a150 bucks less,!

    Genoa track for O'Day 25 or 26

    Great. I just got a new furling 150 and think I'd use the forward track for all genoa settings and just use aft tracks for cruising spinnaker. :) I could never get a good upwind trim angle for my previous sale ever!

    Genoa track for O'Day 25 or 26

    That is exactly what I was looking for! :). So you sometimes use aft track (spinnaker track) for Genoa too? I never get a good angle back there, that's why I so need a forward track. Thanks so very much and if you do get more pics, I'd love to see. I'm gonna lay mine down just like yours...

    Genoa track for O'Day 25 or 26

    The block up by the shrouds is set for working jib. The track back aft isnt useful except for when sailing a spinaker. Ive had ny 26 for 20 years and am tired of having such bad sail trim and am going to put down proper genoa tracks and would just love to see how anybody else has placed them...
