    Great 35-footers

    Congrats on the new boat. Raced against Doc Holiday on Aquarius lots growing up and they were always the boat to beat. Still a great looking boats.

    Autopilots

    We have only used it for deliveries, have not had any problems with it but have not used it in any heavy weather or in big seas. 1D35 has a solid rudder tube, I don't think you would want to cut it.

    Autopilots

    Have a Simrad TP-10 on a 1D35. Only used for deliveries but has been pretty good. Mounted in Cockpit. Not interfaced with instruments.

    The Refit - Andrews 43

    Hendo 30 about 1/3 the displacement of your boat. Sure this will be strong enough? Can you reinforce the Hendo blade?

    Our refreshed 1D35 comes out to play.

    Maybe in a straight windward leeward it helps but with the sprit the boat is much more fun to sail. Good luck with the project, great to see the boat getting refreshed. You'll have lots of fun with it.

    Why didn't you convert it to a sprit? Maybe the single best thing you can do to a 1D35.

    Winch drum losing a grip.

    Had some drums re-done by Harken last year. $100 each plus shipping. Looked and worked like new.

  10. I have a 1D35 trailer that I could be talked into parting with.

    Humidity on a Boat

    I have one of these, drilled and put a drain hose in the reservoir. Set it on the counter with the drain hose in the sink. Leave the power supply over the stove in case it gets hot (never has). Seems to keep the inside of the boat very dry, but we are in socal so not that cold or wet.
