    Saildrive care and feeding...

    Sand blasting seems to be the only to dig all the corroded Al out, just had my lower unit blasted 7 epoxy primed after i had re-surfaced it multiple times with very limited success. Mine is a Saildrive 280, a converted Honda 9.9, a very nice unit but terrible corrosion issues in very warm salt water.

    I've had it with Rhode Island - Where to go?

    Second that, July & August get too hot & humid to sail mid day, then we have Wed evening races, Charleston race week is the biggest regatta in the country in April. 4.5 people per day moving to the Charleston tricounty area, Boeing has large facility here building the Dreamliner and Volvo is building a new auto assembly factory here, MB expanding facility for Transit vans, lots of new working opportunity.

    Recoring foam core cockpit benches, what type of core?

    I used the pink 3/4" Formular (sp?) for many non-stressed interior panels and after 10 years have seen no problems. Top of motor box is 1/4 ply over 2 plys of E glass counter top is formica again over 2 plus of glass head enclosure forward on port Used Coosa for Extension provides top step entering cabin but has floor in head. Ver berth top also has thin ply skin over 2 glass plys. corbels for support

    Volvo MD2030 throttle lever replacement, with Spinlock?

    Here is spinlock shift/throttle control which uses winch handle socket and a stubby plastic handle, looks great and i'd bet can be adapted to your cables Push in to just have throttle control, out for shift & throttle

    Adding fractional halyard to carbon fiber mast

    Is it your intention to eliminate the masthead kite attachment ? If not, adding an exit sheave above the hounds will keep the masthead option open, Here's Mumm 30 sheave outlets just above forestay terminal:

    Wylie 25 interior redo

    If you're not removing anything structural and just adding more furniture, 3/4 Foam you can get at big box stores with a couple plays of glass on either side work well I did the entire interior of a carbon hull boat with this stuff, still going strong after 6 years.

    I gotta say... the decals and sponsors logos DO NOT add to the beauty of the hull. Not attractive, not at all. However, it doesn't get any better looking without those decals. One ugly set of topsides

    In all fairness, I have to admire lots of the detail that is incorporated after watching Cleans video. Saw the boat at the dock at CRW and thought the foredeck mounted solar panel looked very slick. I presume it's capable of foot traffic. However, the overall shape with the slab topsides doesn't conjure "yacht" in my mind. I know chines are all the rage lately, but I'm not buying in.

    This has got to be the most butt ugly boat I've ever seen. You've got to have ton of self confidence to be considering this ride. Photos from charleston race week just over. http://www.photoboatgallery.net/p189702596
