Re: freedom M28

Thanks for sharing what you found. I too have a M28 and am going to replace propane tank , lines, regulator and solenoid after she is on the hard. I have been using a Coleman cannister on my grill this season, and boiling water with a backpack stove.

Re: Replacement mast wedge

I left mine dry, but it took a serious beating with mallets in order to get it flush, so I think a little lube is probably a good idea provided that you wipe away the squeezeout, and get it fully seated, because addition Vaseline squeezeout would be bad if it interfered with the sealant. I used 3M M...

Re: Replacement mast wedge

I have a 28' Mull and stepped my mask this past May. I would not really call it two pieces because the plate which has the bolts is part of the boat. Though a previous poster said it would be impossible to unstep without removing the collar, that is what it sounds like happened, perhaps because the ...

Whale Bilge Pump

The gaiter on my bilge pump is turn up. The 28 M is new to me this year, and I have no reason to believe the pump was ever rebuilt. After looking at the price for the separate gaiter and diaphragm kits I thought it might be wise to just buy a new Gusher Urchin. Does anyone know if a new one, which c...

Re: Mainsail battens

My M 28 came with two sets of battens and two sails. I don't want to shot myself in the foot, by selling a set, but if you are in the New England area, and have a hard time sourcing them, we can talk about it.

I always learn a lot about my Freedom on this forum , and love the creative ideas. I just ordered a set of two Spreader Life Line Rollers from Amazon.

Re: Seeking Opinions-First Time Rigging my m28'

Thanks for the replies. I will change it back to what I thought looked wonky because we seem to have a consensus. I love this forums members. Myself and a friend sailed her home today, a nine hour journey, Wells Main to Little Bay Newington NH. I will make a post about her Maiden Voyage in the next ...

Seeking Opinions-First Time Rigging my m28'

Today I attached the boom and associated rigging. This is my first time doing this as it is a new boat to me and the mast was recently stepped. I tried what the diagram in the manual suggested for the main sheet but it would seem that would require a double block, because two individual blocks side ...

Re: Stepped My Mast Today

yes my neighbors boat was from Hawaii. I was hoping to ask him if he sailed it to Maine. From looking at it, I doubt very much that is the case. I do not plan on stepping the mast again anytime soon, if ever. I bought her thing way because the previous owner just assumed the buyer would be trailerin...
