    Antrim 27 replacement winches

    I do. I never installed the Antals. The Antals are self trailers and will be great for shorthanded stuff but we've been sailing with a full crew. Still rocking the harkens that sound like shit, are not smooth, but get the job done.
  2. Well shit. I contacted the owner of Ripple a few times over the last three years. First time I got, "not selling," and then no response after that. I would have loved to be the one surveying and buying this boat. Maybe my chance will come up again someday. Hopefully the boat gets the love it needs and gets off the damn dock!

    Retrofit a spinnaker retrieval line?

    I've looked into this as well for an Antrim 27. We also go into the companion way hatch but it kinda fills up the boat even with a bag on sliders. Some of the J/88s have a system with roller(s) on the bow hatch with a sock. This system looks cool as sort of a scaled down TP52 system.

    yesterday, say hello to today

    Huge boner! That pic exaggerates the rocker. It's the standard A27 trailer dummy. Wicked boat. At stiffer boat is a faster boat.

    truth to power?

    Seems like an odd discussion. They hauled ass pretty much the whole way there. I don't think they spent much time wagging their keel to make forward progress. But a canting keel IS a non-human powered device that makes the boat faster when sailing... Hat's off to the Beaver crew. Awesome sailing!

    Thanks. PM me the details.
  7. Harken 16.2 two speeds are starting to sound like an ill diesel truck even after maintenance. Looks for suggestions for replacements. Light two speeds for a sport boat? Thanks!
