Re: Bridle Foils??

I have heard you need to be careful mixing carbon fiber with fiberglass because they stretch differently under stress. That can lead to separation, especially when there is foam in between them. I had the same bulkhead separation issues with mine but as you can see from my restoration I cut holes fo...

Re: Bridle Foils??

You can always put an extra layer of fiberglass on the forward hull to beef it up a little.

Re: Steeplechase 2013

I don't know but from where I sit (Hawaii), most people don't even know Supercat turned into ARC or that they are still in business. Maybe if there was a little more advertising in Catamaran Sailor or something it might sell a few more. Is Tom interested in making the business bigger? Rich, What are...

Re: Outboard Motor Mount

Well I did paddle for 8 miles between Oahu and Molokai one night when the winds died. Would have been nice to have had a engine at the time.

I was looking at the Torqeedo website but couldn't find the engine that Matt shows in the picture. What ball park price do they go for?

Re: Outboard Motor Mount

Dang Matt…... you guys make the nicest looking things! Here are some pictures of what we have been supplying recently. These mounts are on the 22 and would work great on a 20 also. They are designed to be used with the Torqueedo electric motor, they do not raise and lower as it is not necessary with...

Re: Boat weight

Yeah, I have to weigh mine sometime too. Doubt it's close to the original either.

Re: Steeplechase 2013

Bill, I understand time is of essence when racing. However I would have thought that it would be quicker to pull out a sea anchor, attach it, right it and then retrieve the sea anchor rather than having to climb up, release the extender, throw the rope over, right it, then reconfiguring the stay ext...

Re: Steeplechase 2013

Bill,

I am wondering why they did n't use your technique(sea anchor, stepping on the mainsheet) of righting the boat?

Re: SC 20 restore part 2

Mac, It's not that hard. I wrote this in my post: "After getting that finished I put a 1/4" by 1/2" piece of aluminum bar inside of the rear beam and drilled holes to mount the solid traveler track. I used a transfer punch to locate the holes exactly, drilled through with the correct tap drill and p...
