  1. I always thought an outboard would be better for the size of the boat. Best would be to redo the transom so it is open, like the Moore 24 fleet does, then you could get to an outboard in a practical way.
  2. I used this one for the baja haha in 2017, still has my pencil marks on it. Waterproof!
  3. You probably know this but you and your parents can rent a Capri 22 in San Diego for a few hours for super cheap. I think we paid $90 for two hours on mission bay. Fun way to see if it's a workable solution.
  4. Twelve feet you say? https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/spo/d/san-bruno-windsurfer-12-combo/7247176813.html
  5. I thinks it's a cousin to the Victory 21, Aurora 21? https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/aurora-21
  6. Make sure you connect Tx-Rx and Rx-Tx. You probably did but it's a common mistake.
  7. So I was checking my youtube feed and it suggested a clip from the 70's country-music variety show Hee-Haw. I watched it for the novelty and youtube ran with it and now suggests lots of banjo-related videos. I just realized it's probably because I watched the banjo sandwich video (and gave it a thumb up). So Dylan be careful how you name the videos or you will lead us all into strange territory.
  8. Victory 21? I rented one on mission bay many years ago; my wife had run a marathon the day before and agreed to go sailing if there was no jumping around. Worked for us.
  9. Not 7 segment but e-ink or e-paper looks great in the sun.
  10. If you really want to geek out you can use a software defined radio dongle as your ais receiver. https://www.rtl-sdr.com/rtl-sdr-tutorial-cheap-ais-ship-tracking/ I agree with those who think a good screen will be the issue, if you buy a nice tablet why bother with the pi? Many years ago I had a nook displaying boat instruments on the epaper display that looked great in the sun but I don't think it would have worked for a chartplotter.
  11. The ardupilot firmware runs on many drone flight controllers and has a boat version (rover) with sail controls. It's an adaptation of an adaptation and it shows but you can set it up in a model boat without having to write code.
  12. I once had a business lunch on a motor yacht with a hot tub up high. It did have a pump and holding tank for passages. The owner was very pleased with the solution. This was 20 years ago and I haven't been on any other similar big boats to compare.
  13. Why make fun of someone trying to get into sailing? And the 26S isn't the 26X so you're mean and dumb.
