    Why don't you try a counterweight on the bottom end of the mainmast. You could try strapping weights onto the forward side of the mast with hose clamps to make the experiment reversible. If it works, you could go with lead inside the mast.
  2. For drilling a prop shaft....

    Unless you have an unusually short (fore & aft) stern post/shaft log, No 1 is the only choice
  3. A "micro" tender for Carlita

    Graham,. Did you experiment with the smaller vane that Alan mentioned in the video?

    Graham. How did Carlita do to windward 'the hard way'? How did your self steering work? Any observations on the TX 200? Any photos or videos? Thanks

    Thrillsbe: "If I were to circumnavigate with my BRS15, the variation would change continuously, but the variation would remain constant." Dis you mean the declantion would change continuously?
  9. Motor Canoe project

    If you look at the other Youtube links in Thrillsbe's post, you will find 2 that use a roller on the rear of the roof This uses a PVC roller- it is in German, but a Ludwig should spreken, nein? This uses a kayak cart
  10. Randy- IMHO the mizzen only thing works for you because the bare main mast is up for balance. Why don't you try the mizzen in the middle mast step? it seems from Greendane's post that the mizzen sprit is higher.

    Chick, This may give you some ideas for loading the canoe, and maybe also Turtler too.

    Alan, How do you disconnect the mizzen or mizzen staysail halyard from the main masthead once the main mast is up?
  15. From Spot it looks like Waldo's home. How about report & Pics
