Re: Current Boat Location Photo.

Re: And it begins

Looks like sails will be going out for production soon.

Bow


Now to really bite the bullet. Really considering a new Beta 25 or 30. Has anyone repowered their F-33 and if so what size motor?

Re: Repower time - Freedom 32 Yanmar

Here is my quote. Does not show 15% off. I will work on size regarding existing prop, prop space available and the actual opening of the current engine space.

Re: Current Boat Location Photo.

Just love these photographs, especially the closeup of mountain and moon. It is certainly very beautiful where you are... if a little chilly! I have one kid at UAF - Fairbanks. Not uncommon to see -45 for a month. Needless to say we don't head north that often during those times. I enjoy the "Banan...

Re: Repower time - Freedom 32 Yanmar

I'm in the same boat :P . Working on a new quote from California for a Beta-30 plus shipping to Alaska. Pain in the butt getting Yanmar parts up here. It will be a summer project if it happens.

Re: Is this a G10 rig?

Yea - 5-degrees F and blowing 20. Boat is on the hard anway till May. Gives me time to do other projects. This was, and still is, one major expense. I have all new running rigging sitting in the garage. Need a few more block and a few rope clutches. Next MAJOR issue is the motor. Have been looking a...

Re: Is this a G10 rig?

Main sail 243 sqft. Mizzen 147 sqft. Reef #1 for both are 73% aloft Reef "2 for both are 53% aloft Reef "3 for the main is 33% aloft. I did see that reefing guide. I shall take a look and utilize it this summer. As for lacing. The only reason I was looking at dyneema is due to it's slippery characte...

Re: Is this a G10 rig?

Well it looks like the sail will fit. Had to double check the measurements.

What is the recommendations for lacing? Specifically material: Dynmeea vs webbing vs standard 10-mm yacht braid. My next challenge.
