And a majority of the new running rigging showed up. Eye splices to follow. Still have some dyneema enroute.

Well I have to say my rope splicing skills for double braid sucks. Will keep working on it. Ordering more dynmeea to replace the wishbone stays. SO much eaiser to splice via brummel lock and whipping. Slowly going thru each line and associated blocks. Every 4th or 5th block i am having to replace.

Break in the action. Winter has arrived and I have been focusing on getting the sails figured out.

Looks like sails will be going out for production soon.

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?

Hello, I reengined F33/35 CK with Beta 30. Many details should be in the forum history, otherwise come back to me. 25 has just enough power but (in 2011) had a very sharp torque curve which means that either it will not reach full revs or you need to under-prop. 30 is better. 25 has a very appealing small size. Main thing is to take plenty of time over the project. Beta is a very good company.

Thanks Mike. Pretty much what Beta is recommending. I will need to change my prop also since my current one is too big. Guess I could sale it for cheap. I have to give them a call tomorrow to start working out the details. Everything has been email up to this point. Shipping from California to Alaska will be interesting.

I like the "C" panel, high rise exhaust?, separate header tank due to hot water loops, etc etc. Basically a lot of measurements to be taken.

Just got my offical quote. New beta 30 with various upgrades, new 15" prop and shipped CA to AK (my front door). $14,800. I know I could rebuild for cheaper but I like the idea of new... I basically told him we will be a go. Have to run down and do some engine bed measurements this weekend.

I will be installing myself with some help.

Hey Mike did you happen to create a detailed drawing of the engine bed for the 33 ck? I was down there today measuring the front ones and the back section. Beta is inquiring.

Well it warmed up to 21-f (- something c) so time to start pulling the motor. Piece by piece but for now just enough to get more measurements.
