  1. Every phrf organization out there knows S2 7.9s have lifting centerboards. The boat also has almost 1000# of internal ballast. Lake Michigan phrf is the only organization I'm aware of that says board down all the time.
  2. If you have a low oil pressure light. The buzzer should be wired into this circuit.
  3. Looks like it is about 10 turns according to other forums.
  4. Here is a picture of mine in the open position. You can see the line on the shaft of the closed position.
  5. A good grounding system on a boat in saltwater should work (you never know with lightning) pretty well. In fresh water a good grounding system is nice, but it is more difficult to dissipate the lightning strike due to the low conductivity of the fresh water. With that said, I had a boat with a simple system, mast grounded to the keel. Took a strike and toasted some electronics. Had another boat with no grounding system and carbon rig and survived 20 years with no strikes. Now I have a boat fully grounded, mast, shrouds, stanchions ect. I'm in fresh water. What's your big urge to get rid of t
  6. Are you sailing in fresh or salt water? You might want to rethink that statement about carbon conducting electricity. It generally is a poor conductor and compared to metals.
  7. I hope I haven't gone to tame in my old age. My kids wanted me to buy a 111. Have to get you out for a sail sooner than later.
  8. I looked at three 115s in the last year. Ended up buying something else, but overall the boats seemed like a decent bang for the buck. One of the boats I looked at had a serious grounding incident. Not sure if I've ever seen so much carbon laid into a keel stub before. I was looking for the sprit version. Wasn't to many available.
  9. Thanks!! We do have a bit of work to do to figure out how to use the cushions and standing headroom.
  10. Bought a 35'boat 11.5 beam, 7' draft that was in the water back in November on the east coast. I was pretty involved in the derigging to save a few bucks and learn the boat. Had it trucked 600 miles to the great lakes and unloaded. A little over 6k$ spent on marina fees and trucking. Did have a little help from a friend in the industry to help me with logistics which saved $$.
