    S2 27

    V berth was quite long…. Btw I started that thread on sailnet link above back in 2008…lol.  I miss the boat, sold it due 1) time to maintain, 2) wanted smaller/easier/cheaper boat, 3) wanted trailer storage in case I needed to winter store at home…. Was a mistake in retrospect… should have kept...

    Mooring chain..

    Just checked the chain today...noticed wear on several links on the end connecting to the upper chain. Rest of chain to the mushroom eye looks good. I'm thinking or reversing chain ends. So I would connect the worn end to mushroom eye a few links down past the worn links. Would I need to...

    Yanmar 1GM10

    If all is well in neutral, what about the tranny? Or how about stuffing box or cutless bearing being wrong size or causing friction?? Only time this happened to my 1gm-10 was a heavily barnacled prop. Once cleaned she hit 3k plus rpm.

    Thick Aluminum or Stainles Plate

    I have had good luck getting stainless at, pricing is very good for small lots. They have a wide variety, and if you call them they'll work with you to source the most cost effective parts. Basically they're a franchise of machine shops amd metal distributors.

    Specific keel bolt question...

    i've been told to not use backing plates that are square (ie, not rounded) as they can create a more localized stress point. i'm not a structural engineer so not sure if they mean simple rounding the corners so they don't form a tight angle, or if the edges need to be rounded, etc..

    Mooring Rig

    Specific keel bolt question...

    Couple of thoughts, you mentioned bilge water - where did water come from? Its good that you're not seeing flexing of keel but still water could seep - also i have seen pictures of studs that seemed fine but when keel was pulled the stud under the bilge was worn away. Also when you fabricate...

    rig tuning

    What do you do with a MH rig with sweptback spreaders? My S2 27 has an offshore spars rig which has masthead shrouds and single swept back spreaders. Most resources on the web either talk to fractional rigs with swept back spreaders or MH rig with straight spreaders. I'm particularly...
