    EMS Knotmeter manual needed

    Can anyone supply me with a copy of their manual for an EMS U25K or U25PL knotmeter? PDF would be great if you can scan it, if not a paper copy would be good. I would pay postage.

    Outboard capacity on a Mac 22

    I think my boat is a MAC 22, but I am not sure. I read or heard somewhere that the maximum capacity of outboard motor for these boats is 10HP. Can anyone confirm or refute that? I have a beefy motor mount that looks like it would hold a 10hp outboard w/o a problem. My concern is the motor I...

    I bought a Macgregor Venture 21 mid season last summer. It was set up with the mainsheet mid boom and a traveler at the forward end of the cockpit. It has no boom vang. With all the discussion about the importance of a boom vang in sail trim, I would like to add one. So if I add a boom van...

    odd mast configuration on my Venture 21

    When raising the sail for the first time this summer (I bought the boat this year) after attaching the boom to the mast, I attempted to thread the track slides of the mainsail into the mast track and found the spread in the track was actually BELOW the boom, rather than above it. I had to...
