"We are probably going to go with Tohatsu 15h as they look to be the only one that will fit in the very tight space we have and they have a power tilt as well as a ultra long leg and remote control and we can source them locally.  I would have…"

"Gleda (Tiki 38) got 2 20HP Suzuki EFI (DF20A) now. Around 200 hours and no problems yet. Thanks for the hint with the fuel pump Makz. We got the long shaft. It is Ok but draws air in short steep  waves. The props were changed from 3 blade to 4…"

Anybody used a Suzuki Outboard?

We are thinking of replacing our Yamaha 9.9s with Suzuki 20s as the Suzuki has fuel injection rather than a carburetor.  We know people who have used the suzuki on their tenders and are very satisfied but were hoping that someone here would have had experience of using them on a cat.All comments gratefully received.ThanksRobertps our boat is a one off 38ft ply epoxy cat that is derived from Woods and Wharram designs.See More

"A yamaha 9.9 has a 9 amp charging coil ,so with two you 've got 18 amps charging power from your engines . If you connect them of course .I guess part of your refit will be  a full service of your engines so if you do not know how to check…"

Fitting an electric anchor winch

We currently have a manual Lofrans Royale and given our advancing years are thinking of upgrading to an electric winch; however, as we have outboards we are not sure if we would have enough power it and were wondering if anyone else has addressed this problem.  The solutions I have are a DC to DC charging circuit from the main battery bank to a dedicated 110 amp AGM battery or having a generator that we start up each time we want to operate the winch.All suggestions and experiences gratefully…See More

Tiki 30 centre section available

We have replaced our Tiki 30 open cockpit with a pod. We still have the old centre section, which is in good repair, and if anyone wants it and is willing to collect it from East Yorkshire UK please get in touch.

Old cockpit has now been recycled into a stern walkway and engine well cover. The foam sandwich is really light and stiff so ideal for this sort of application so we have salvaged as much as we can and will store it pending the next project.

I started sailing with the seasons along the US East Coast over 20 years ago and am very familiar with all of it from southern Maine to lower Florida. There are many inlest from ocean to protected Intra Coastal Waterway and most experienced cruisers with good sea boats enjoy a little of both as weather dictates. One can anchor the whole way so marina fees need not apply.
Look forward to seeing you, ann and Nev

In other words the shroud length of 8.85 m --is that the measurement  distance to the chain plate ,or is that measured allowing for a turnbuckle between the chain plate and the shroud eye?? II am making up my shrouds prior to standing the mast,

Hi Robert thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I thought I was way to !ate to the party but it was worth asking. Yes I know about the pdf versions and they are still online so I'll persue that avenue. Originals would have been nice!

Good luck with your moving aboard. The adventure awaits.

Neil
