  1. There are good haulout facilities at PYBC. Worth joining for that alone. Plus Harrytom will be able to give you advise on Cav 26 do's and don'ts.

    Lotus 9.2

    As you can see this is a very functional option. The 9.2 is a very easy boat to sail as they are so well balanced and aren't family frighteners. Had this one 11 years now and still enjoy it as much as the day we bought it. Probably the biggest volume 30fter around excluding a Pogo 30 but that's a different animal all together.

    Have a sugar scoop on our 9.2 with built in step each side. Next best thing to a walk through. It also makes dinghy access easy. Will provide photo later.
  4. Frenchmans cap down the bottom end.
  5. What about Sail rock. One very big rock.
  6. Sounds about right. I run our D1-30 at about 2200 rpm and sit at about the same speed, maybe a tad more. Need those extra horses to get in and out of Whitianga harbour against big tides.

    Cruisair A/C

    Sounds a bit too fancy for my old clunker.
  8. That area has regular visits from large dolphin schools and pods of Orca.
  9. Yep,I have done it on the hard using a chain block. Just take your time and it is easy. And yes, don't rely just on the topping lift.
  10. I know of a Raven 26 who tried this manuover by dropping into a fiz boat. Bloody near went through the bottom of the fizzy. That was only an 8hp Yanmah.
