1268Re: [privateer20] New owner. Old boat.
- Nov 12, 2016Hi TonyWelcome to the ownership of a Privateer, I went the other direction to you in that I went from owning one to now being a part owner of a Sadder 32. However I had 12 very happy years with my Privateer.On the two questions you asked. As regards raising and lowering the last I had an aluminium last and was a birthday rig with a pivot pin on the tabernacle so it was only a mater of releasing the forestays and bringing a line thru the bow roller in reverse and attaching it to the fore job halyard and playing out the line until I could take the weigh of the add. Raising it was the reverse. The rig wE surprisingly heavy all the same.On the outboard, My boat came with a 6hp engine which I felt was too big as I felt that there was no extra benefit in driving her at one than half throttle. if I had changed engine I would probably have bought a 4HP but I do know some feel that fully laden the power is needed. In the well there was a timber panel about1 inch thick to rest the aft portion of the engine bracket on. I had a small piece of 1 inch removable timber between the clamps and the fiberglass to protect it. I believe though some have used stainless on the outboard well.A word of caution. I wonder how your cockpit drains. in one it drained to the outboard well which required a bung as under engine or with more than 1 on board the drain was under water!On Sat, 12 Nov, 2016 at 19:21, Tony Glover tonytheskipper@...
