Re: Flopper Stopper Solutions for F32 (Hoyt)?

Hi RDS-

Flopper stoppers work best when they are solidly coupled to the boat. If there is anything elastic holding the flopper stoppers, the boat will still roll.

Re: Flopper Stopper Solutions for F32 (Hoyt)?

Hi Marty- Just my $.02, but a boom crutch might not be a good idea. When the boom is pulling up on the flopper stopper the boom would act as a lever with the crutch acting as the fulcrum. This would act to pull your mast out of the boat. Granted, there is the L bracket thingy to hold the mast from r...

Re: refrigeration for F32

I'm very happy with the Sea Frost system I put in my F38 about 5 years ago. It's an energy sipper and the compressor unit is relatively small. It includes a vent hose to draw cooling air from the cabin. The company custom built an oversized freezer box to my specifications with minimal up-charge. C...

Re: new Freedom 32 owner in SF Bay

Welcome Dave! I wonder if that F32 was the same one I looked at a while back. The owner had done a ton of upgrades. I ended up with an F38 from San Diego. She's now berthed at Treasure Island. Have fun sailing the bay. Maybe see you out there :D Carliane s/v Kynntana Thanks so much. I'm in Fortman ...

refrigeration for F32

My new (to me) 1984 F32 "Freedomrider III" is about to get refrigeration. I'm thinking Alder barbour air- and water-cooled CU-200 SuperColdMachine. Thinking cold plate but might go with a regular evaporator. I aspire to cruise in Mexico, so I'm sizing it for the tropics. My question is where to put ...

F32 ground tackle

My new (to me) 1984 F32 "Freedomrider III" doesn't have a bow roller, and was wondering what others have. I don't have a windlass yet, but will have one in the future. My intended anchor is a 10Kg spade. Will probably use 1/4 or 5/16 chain and rode combination.

new Freedom 32 owner in SF Bay

Greetings freedom lovers! Thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Dave Calhoun, new proud owner of a 1984 F32 (Hoyt) named Freedom Rider III (ex Trillium). She's a beaut. The PO replaced the portlights, head liner, and upholstery. The interior shows almost like new. I've got a lot of questions, but I'll p...
