Mull F30 portlights - Free

I just got finished replacing the 4 large trapezoidal portlights on my Mull F30 with surface mount acrylic. I have the 3 original aluminum-framed fixed ones left in pretty good shape, but had to destroy the opening one over the stove to remove it. If anybody wants them and to keep them out of a land...

Re: Odd mainsail shape - advice?

I had the same issue when I purchased my F30. Played with it for a full summer before giving in and purchasing new sails from Doyle. Also went to a loose footed main for more control. It has tapered battens. That’s solved it completely, I get excellent sail shape now.

Re: My survey

The Mull and Hoyt designs are pretty distinctive. I found sailboatdata.com to be a great resource while I was searching for a boat, ultimately purchasing my F30.

F30 aft cabin bunk plywood mod

I have the aft cabin taken apart on my F30 right now. The large piece of plywood that serves as the base of the aft cabin bunk is a bear to remove and move around, so I'm contemplating how to improve it. IMG_0165.jpeg Here are the options I'm considering: 1. Cut the plywood lengthwise (fore/aft), ju...

Re: Freedom 30 Diesel Tank

I'm going with the Electric Yacht 10kw system as well with a 4 x 12v/200ah LiFePO4 battery pack. Got the Quiq 1500 battery charger for it. The batteries will be located under the port settee in my F30, which was the only reasonable place to put them. Batteries and motor just shipped this week, so I'...

Freedom 30 Diesel Tank

I'm converting my F30 to an electric motor and just pulled out the aluminum diesel tank. Rather than scrapping it, was wondering if anyone is interested in it? Looking for a nominal amount for the effort to clean up and ship it - $50 + shipping cost from Seattle to wherever you'd like. It looks like...
