Re: RACING A F-25

Thanks Yarrow for the advise. All of which is very helpful. Where did you get your carbon fibre rudder? I am pretty sure mine is water logged. I plan on moving the batteries to under the V-berth and fix my fuel guage so I don't have to keep as much fuel in the tank in the hopes of getting weight out...

RACING A F-25

Just finishing up my first season racing my 84 F-25 round mast inboard and have been very disappointed in her performance. I have seen a number of posts praising the performance of the F-25. Any suggestions on setup, sails, or tactics would be appreciated. At this point I am ready to sell and go bac...

Replacing Fuel guage sending unit on 84 Freedom 25

I would like to replace the sending unit but it does not look like there is enough clearance between the top of the tank and the bottom of the cockpit to get it out. I would rather not mess with it if I am not going to be able to get it out and replace it. Has anyone ever replaced theirs and if so d...

Re: looking for Freedom 25

If your still looking. I have a 1984 Freedom 25 with a 2007 Yanmar diesel and twin axil Triad trailer in Lorain Oh. It has a complete set of Nexus instruments. Newer main with jib and spinnaker. Just had the bottom soda blasted when it came out of the water in the fall. I WOULD WANT $12,000 FOR IT.

Re: Wondering about a F25 outboard to inboard conversion

I'll confirm what the other owners of Freedom 25 inboards have said. The inboard adds too much weight to the stern. I am thinking about converting my diesel to electric to try and solve the problem. If mine was an outboard I would leave it that way. The only two things I can think to do to try and g...

Re: F25 diesel cruising speed

My 84 25, round mast easily does 5.5 knots at 3,000 rpm. Could the problem be with the folding prop?
