  1. The pics above are actually my old setup. I extended the arm on the tiller to accommodate a TP32, here in action for the first time VID-20210520-WA0009.mp4
  2. Make one yourself. It's not that difficult
  3. I like their filling boards and used these extensively when fairing my F85SR. For sanding I prefer rigid torture boards. Easy to make with some ply and a length of timber. Or you could use a 3M board. These are very light
  4. On my F-85SR I will install the CV-7RM with 180 degr honeywell sensor on an N2K with B&G instruments this winter. I'll know how the combination works next year :-)
  5. Indeed. I had a hard job of finding out how to do it as well. Couldn't find any info on the net either. In the end I doubled the edges back. I knotted the doubled back edge with dyneema lashing thread. That was quite a job, took me 160m of thread and a lot of time for the 6 nets. I then reefed a 10mm line through. I made sure I had some room for play , but I was still surprised by the amount of slack that has appeared after just a few days of sailing. Except for the outer edges of the main nets I knotted all attachments individualy.
  6. And ( trailerable) trimarans fill up that gap quite well
  7. How was the hobby-horsing on that boat? I've seen a video of one dancing around quite a bit and wondered if it was just a coincidence or a regular occurrence
  8. Well, pacice mentioned that he is building one. As the design emerged 10 Years ago and no plans have been sold since 2012, I doubt that there are many builders anymore. AFAIK 6 have been completed now, which is about 25% of plans sold.
  9. Thanks mundt. No kite yet. It's planned for next year. Not a masthead though, but a tad lower.
  10. The outboard is mounted on the starboard side. It's a 9.9 yamaha extra long tail, manual start. I did look at a lighter 6hp engine, but was afraid it would not have the power to head into strong winds and the short, steep wave pattern that can exist on the IJsselmeer.
  11. It's either been blowing 6-9 kts or 6-9 bft ( mostly the latter ) but yesterday I was able to have another sail in light conditions.
  12. You’re welcome. It’s always better to learn from someone else’s mistakes :-) Enjoy the build!
  13. Splashed the boat for the first time today and had a short sail with very light winds, but had to get back quickly as thunderstorms approached. Boat weight is 1000kgs. As I have the heavy curved floats installed I'm quite happy with this. Now the fun part starts, learning to know the boat. :-)
  14. Why the major difference between the F25A and the C? Or the 31 and the 31R. One reef and you have compatible SA./D. The F85SR is compatible with the F82R, with improved floats. Basically LWL helps when you need to battle wind and waves
