"For those who aspire for a big multi but don't have the where-with-all or if you want to sail a fast, inexpensive multi: Near St Pete the 12th of September sign up for a Windrider Demo ride at Sail Honeymoon on the Dunedin Causeway. The…"
"If you are near St Pete around the 12th of September sign up for a Windrider Demo ride at Sail Honeymoon on the Dunedin Causeway. The Windrider Company wants people to sign up at www.windrider.com/demofl I am not affiliated in any way with the…"
I rented a WR at Sail Honeymoon a couple of years ago and even in light air, 6kts or so, of wind it was a hoot to sail. They are having a Demo Day at SH on the Dunedin Causeway in Dunedin Fl the 12th of September. New owners etc., just sign up for a…
We now have a Hunter 23.5 and a pair of Hobie Adventure Islands besides miscellaneous kayaks. I do miss my Sea Pearl Tri.
We sold the Sea Pearl and bought a 93 Hunter 23.5 in September. It was a little odd going back to a monohull, but we seem to be getting there. Lots of sailing events planned, check my website at www.flwwp.com
I teach at ZHS so I've got the summer off and Hudson isn't too far away. I'm packing up right now for 5 days in the Keys on my buddy Dave's Mac 26X - he posts on this board too. I'm looking forward to trying the X out, it's on my shortlist for next boat. I like my Tri but something bigger - not as big as yours, our club, WCTSS, is centered on trailer sailing - for those 1 - 2 week opportunities. My Tri is flat out fun but it is like tent camping: after the 3rd day you are ready to go home. Keep an eye on our club board and join us on one of our Caladesi or Ft Desoto Cruises, we always have a good time.
"FYI I installed a ProSol isolator that prioritizes the start battery at start up. Once the start battery is at 13.3V it switches charging to the house bank. It has colored LEDs that indicate where the charge is going and works well. BTW Beneteau put…"
"Thank you Scott and Mike for your experiences. Exchanging with John Stevens I had the same good feeling.
What digital battery isolator did you use Scott ? Is it also a separator so you can charge the starting battery and the Exxide batteries for the…"
I am glad that you found my post informative. At this time of the year, I have the panels and the bimini top at home. I have just took 2 photos. As you can see, I have 4 "corner triangles" made in acrylic. That was the way I…"
"Denis I too installed an ElectroMaax but I went with the 140A model. Also installed the serpentine belt kit and Balmar regulator. Like Scott stated John and his people did a great job and is very supportive. I too changed out the battery isolator as…"
"Hi Dennis. I just did that upgrade 2 seasons ago and couldn't be happier with the results. I put in a 160 amp Eelectromax alternator with Serpentine pull-up kit, Balmar Smart regulator, up sized battery cables and a digital battery isolator.…"
"Thank you for this most informative post. Two questions, how did you attach the panels to the new acrylic fabric, and how is this working in real world cruising? I continue to be frustrated by the large draw down from the fridge/freezer…"
Hello,Has anyone upgraded the Hitachi OEM alternator to a high output one with a serpentine pulley kit ?We currently have a Mastervolt 90 A with an alphapro regulator driven with a single v belt, I think it slips a little and was looking for an upgrade to automotive type serpentine pulley system.Thank you.DenisSee More
