    Oh, I'll bet that was fun. I don't like that number though...35 years. Jacqueline was built in June 86 so I am coming up on that milestone before very long. She has her original 2GM20F. I may wind up...

    Isn't it sweet to ride that current? I am always amazed at how fast you can go at full flood or ebb. During the big rains two years ago heading downriver I got up to 10Kts over the ground at about...

    Yes, I watched part of the video but completed my treadmill walk before it finished. Going to watch the rest today.

    I do have a colleague in Seattle who owns a Freedom 30. He just completed an...

    Yes Rick, that really looks great. I didn't realize you had retrofitted. In my boat the stock is a bit further aft under the transom deck so I could avoid the additional glass work in the after...

    [QUOTE=pogen;26014]My old boat was a wheel to tiller conversion, the shaft tube top was barely above the waterline. The lower bearing is flooded. The solution was to make a sock out of neoprene...

    Sounds like folks think the tiller conversion is a good idea. I could probably do that for almost no dollars if I sold the steering gear for a few bucks.

    Rob, good points for me to think about. I will post a picture of the rudder stock. Freedoms have a really beefy rudder tube which rises about 18 inches within the boat. Well above the waterline....

    Berkley Marine Center's non stinky diesel? What's the deal with that? Sounds very interesting.

    Ha ha, the trick is to look like you are doing something when you are not. I got pretty good at that before I retired.

    I think I designed my entire electrical system for the 2016 SHTP while I was...

    Yea, I am too. My stuff is more fluff though. New cabin lights, new headliner, repairing diesel leaks, oil changes, coolant changes, etc. My AGM batteries are 13 year old now and they need to be...

    Peter Sellers trying to talk Chinese. God, that is funny! I wonder what that sounds like. Next time you hear it, turn on the voice recorder.

    I don't know about you all but I am finding covering in place to be rather luxurious compared to longer distance singlehanded sailing. Decent chow, shower every day, good sleep, no tedious chipmunk...
