Re: Hoyt 32 Strut for Shaft

UPDATE - thanks for all that offered suggestions I had my local boatyard replace my prop shaft strut when I had the bottom redone a few weeks ago. Whew that was some work. The yard owner swore they didn't quote doing the work for me, left me at the dock for two hours, then came back and asked for th...

Re: Spinnaker - Yes!! the carbon fiber holder.

Re: Bay Area meet up

What a great afternoon sail Kim and I had with Doug & Marie & Frankie on Millenium Falcon. I had never sailed a twin-masted Freedom and Doug did a masterful job of having us sail wing-and-wing all the way back to the dock. It ghosted along brilliantly and then we caught a bit of a breeze.

It seems that the cables are so tight that a bus is such a great idea. Not sure what the yellow wires are, how it all hooks up. Any notes on cable replacement, suggestio...

Re: Prop Shaft Strut Question for Freedom 32 (Hoyt)

Has anyone replace the prop shaft strut on a Freedom 32? In my last haulout to do the bottom paint we saw that it is failing due to electrolysis. The yard suggested we fabricate a new one, and this time bond it to the system and zinc. The location of the nuts under the battery box was really helpful...

I have responded in some posts a few times but they never have shown up.
