    Prada cup on TV

    The next races are, US dates, Jan 16, 21, 22, & 23. Check your NBC Sports Network schedule. For me in the central time zone, 16th is at 11pm and is "tape delay". 21st is at 11:30pm and is delay, 22nd is at 8pm and is live, 23rd is at 10pm and is delay. The boats are very similar, there are...

    Wire Size to Bus Bar?

    How long is your run from the breaker/fuse? If the run to the bus bar is properly sized, I would continue with that size from the bus bar to the battery depending on the distance.

    So Many Projects, Where to Start?

    The big orange dial is a battery selector switch. It is for a two battery bank system. Rule of thumb is even days would be "2" and odd days would be "1". But yeah, that whole electrical situ looks like a candidate for replacement. Here is a thread on my electrical re-fit. You probably don't need...

    Rope Clutch or Spinlock PXR?

    I wouldn't use a PXR for this. On cabin top or not, they always seem to be popped open at the most inopportune time. For halyard, I would go for a clutch.

    New Owner O’Day 23

    Depending on where you are rebedding, check for wood core. O'Day usually has a balsa cored deck. You might have to over drill, fill with thickened epoxy, re-drill, and mount. I did that for the toe rails on my old 25, yes, it took a while. Had to replace core under the mast step. It may be a bit...

    New Owner O’Day 23

    Read this article Rebedding Deck Hardware With Bed-It Butyl Tape - Marine How To and then buy his product, https://shop.marinehowto.com/products/bed-it-tape. Nothing, I mean nothing will work better. Don't think about 4200 or the like. Never use 5200 as it will never come off again. Use Main...

    New Owner O’Day 23

    Depends on the furler to be honest. But, they all are basically integral with your forestay so you may be stuck with it for a while. Has it always been stored without a cover? Have you checked the deck for leaks? I owned an O' Day for a few years, they all leak. Check for water penetration...

    Wowza. these AC75 boats have become spaceships

    RRS as far as I know is it. Which, as these are professionals, is all they should need.

    Bulkheads

    If the chain plates are attached to shrouds that hold up your mast, then you have your answer. It should not be difficult to lower the mast on a Cat 22, people do it constantly. Bulkheads are structural, especially when chain plates are attached to them. As for replacing with Starboard, that I...

    Oh, one more thing.....

    A few weeks before haul out, Rachel got promoted to Admiral. And yes, we literally tied the knot, though I coached her wrong initially and it was a "granny" My best friend since high school was my Best Man and @Jackdaw was right next to him. Not everything in 2020 has been a sh*t show. lol

    End of the Season

    Well @Scott T-Bird, in all honesty not with the same trailer. If I had a tandem axel with pads, sure, I would consider taking the boat elsewhere for an extended period of time. With us being able to work remotely and what not, could be even more attractive. But, remember, a 235 is not that big...

    End of the Season

    LOL No worries, its all good info. Been thinking on affording a new trailer for quite some time. From brand new, to modifying the one I have (major PITA), to finding used, which is problematic in itself. And yes, the uprights that have the rollers are a friction connection so as they get used...
