Re: 1984 Freedom 28 Cat Ketch for sale.

Hi Scott,

The specs you list for your boat are bigger than those of a F28 cat ketch, is this actually a F33?

Re: F25 diesel cruising speed

I used to run at ~ 2600 but now hang at ~ 2200 and 4.5 knots in flat water. I did have to power home in a heavy sea at one point coming back from a regatta that was canceled for too much wind, in waves I was often down to 1.5 knots.

Re: F25 Rudder Construction

Yarrow, is your rudder done yet? I just patched mine (again) and toting that thing around reminded me how much I'd like to get it lighter.

Re: NEW FREEDOM 25 OWNER

I might add that I race my boat more than anything else, and the breeze on Narragansett Bay is generally in the 15 knot range during the summer. I've got a few ideas on how to do a boomkin using the existing gunmount but that's a bit down the line. From comments of other owners, it seems like the ji...

Re: NEW FREEDOM 25 OWNER

If you're just looking to try it out, you might look for a used Etchells jib, it's about the right size and there are plenty of them around. If you find it's compatible you can have a real sail made that is close to the dimensions depending on how the geometry of your sheeting works.

Re: Narragansett Bay Get Together 2015

How about this? There are several races out to BI over the course of the summer. One is Memorial Day weekend, sponsored by Newport YC. One is the weekend of 8/8 sponsored by the 2000 Club, one is Columbus Day weekend also sponsored by Newport Yacht club. None of the races is super serious (except ma...
