Re: Electric motor inboard

I am hardly an expert but thought I would put in my thoughts on the generator. I would consider getting an inverter generator. The reason is they use less fuel and have heard that they are quieter especially if not on full load. Best.

Re: Electric motor inboard

I have not done the electric motor conversion. I have a yanmar diesel. However, the idea seems sound and would love it if you would keep us posted. I am sure others would like to know your thoughts and obstacles. Thanks for posting.

Re: Anyone use online outboard shop?

I would probably recommend that you not deal with them. I read some where about some out of the country fellows selling outboards at ridiculous prices. The buyers got scammed.

Re: DIFFERENT MODELS OF 32

FWIW, my understanding of the F30 F32 is spot on by chip aka 'gulf coast sailor". I have the F32 sans sugar scoop, which is the Hoyt. Best,

Re: Mast collar clearance
