    ePropulsion and Torqeedo experiences

    Anyway... we just bought a ePropulsion Spirit 1.0 but haven't used it in a cruising sense yet. The few times around the harbor has been pretty good in a 9' inflatable. Nice to have it so quiet. We had bought it to be able to roam around silently while looking at birds and other mammals. We would like to be able to get closer to wildlife, even bears foraging along the shore. We have a Yamaha 4, it will be interesting to compare the two if we ever get to go cruising again. This is in addition to our 13'er with a 50hp. Honda. I worry a little about the plastic build. It's all plastic, and you know how broken plastic is hard to fix. We will be handling it carefully. Fortunately it's light.

    SHAKA challenge ??

    Hawaii is reported to be extending their 14 day quarantine regulations until July 31st. So much for that.

    Better broaching for singlehanders

    Have you ever thought about arranging the jacklines in the center of the boat, at least forward of the cockpit, to lessen the chance of going over and being dragged along the side?

    US sailing couldn’t even get this right

    Looks better than most you see around the marina, especially the powerboaters.

    As usual, what was wrong with the old FP?

    That's not what I meant by "a little more twist in the leach".
