    Isn't the requirement for a fixe mount manual above and below deck? Might be other races I'm thinking of.

    Use them as Battery 1 & 2, not as a single battery. Same age, same capacity, same chemistry, same manufacturer then doing a single bank is OK but I still wouldn't. It's nice to know you have a...

    I've actually been in touch with the builder of the Reverso. About $12k landed in the SF Bay Area. Really neat bit of kit. I have the contact info. of a guy locally who bought one so hopefully...

    That doesn't mean the battery is good. You should put a similar load on it like you will when you race.... so at least 5A and let it run it's course. You don't want greatly diminished capacity...

    I do too..... but those boats should not be racing against boats that use manual power. Transpac has a first to finish (nearly always a power assist vessel) and the handicap Barn Door for manual...

    I agree, just not for the race track. How is it fair that someone gets to short-tack up the city front and be totally fresh for a spinnaker hoist at the weather mark while you can barely get the...

    That is exactly what I wanted to find out.

    Not a target at all as I totally forgot you even had them. This was brought to a head in my mind by the "fully" automated powered operation of a boat...
  12. Power-Assisted Sailing - the Slippery Slope

    This thread is to put out information to the SSS members about a slippery slope that in my opinion has now become an edge of a cliff.

    And drop the Overall Trophy for the RTR? Put no one on the trophy even though we are having a race? It's an easy fix.

    There is that..... and this races overall trophy. I also see Express SH & DH together.

    Hmmm. I thought all the Singlehanders would be on one course and Doublehanders on another. The way this is setup doesn't allow for an overall Singlehanded or Doublehanded Race Trophy or season...

    Deployment and cavitation seem to be the concern. Outboard running gas in an outboard well is VERY dangerous. A fan needs to be run to evacuate the fumes to prevent an explosion. The Hobie 33,...

    That hoist will be ready for you maybe in 2-3 years, if ever. You might max out the length at Brickyard Cove but that's the ONLY 4500lbs hoist left for public use in NorCal.
