Re: Outboard Motor Mount

No apology needed, I appreciate any feedback.

I hope my boat will not add a couple pounds through the night. Sitting unburdened at the slip, it really shouldn't take on any water. If it dose...that is something I will address.

Re: Outboard Motor Mount

The only thing I want the motor for is getting a slip when I go to the coast. After doing a pretty good amount of research I cannot really find anywhere in Southern California where you can leave a beachcat on the beach overnight. I have a nice 4hp motor on my monohull and it would be really nice fo...

Re: Outboard Motor Mount

That "home made" mount looks ideal. I was thinking about something similar using the existing bolts.

The Aquarius version looks very nice but think that would work better with a solid beam. My Supercat 20 has the telescoping beams so it looks like the rivets would be an issue.

Re: Outboard Motor Mount

I am looking to build a motor mount for my SC20. I found this thread and figured it would be best to revive the old thread rather than start a new one on the same topic. Any ideas, feedback, or pictures would be great.

Thanks
Gene

Re: Foul Weather Gear

I am a big fan of drysuits. I have kayaked rivers with both banks frozen over and everything inside the suit was toasty (my hands and face were still very cold). You can wear anything you want under it. If its really cold I usually wear a one piece fleece suit. The best are made by Kokatat. They are...

Re: Anyone sail San Deigo CA?

I have little kids who love the parks/playgrounds at Mission bay so that is our first choice but I do find SD bay more interesting.

Re: Anyone sail San Deigo CA?

Was the storage on the beach, or mast up storage near a ramp? Was it on Mission bay or San Digeo Bay?

Re: Anyone sail San Deigo CA?

We are going over Christmas time. We rented a house for the week. That would have been great to meet up if we were both there at the same time.

Anyone sail San Deigo CA?

I would like to take my SuperCat 20 to San Diego for a few days and its a bit of operation to rig so I would love to keep it rigged overnight if possible. Anyone know of if there is anywhere that it is legal (or unenforced) to keep a cat overnight. I know the beach lock up bars on mission bay say th...

Re: SC 20 restore part 2

It sounds like this is one of the most common issues with the supercat 20s so its very helpful to see how to do the repair. How is the cover plate attached? How do you remove it?...can you just pry it off? At this point my 1980 SC20 seems to be good but I tend to be pretty hard on my toys so I can e...

Re: #2

My guess would be either H18 or P16. I am guessing the H14 was a bit behind those two. This is just from what I see on the water and in the classified ads.

Re: What one book?

I got my copy about a week ago. Its very impressive amount of information...not the easiest read but so far I have learned a ton. I feel like I will need to reread much of it a couple times to have a reasonable chance to retain...its just so full of information...that is mostly new to me.
