Re: Outboard well

Hello Skald I have an IF boat (1973) which I bought with a motor already in well (Mercury Sail Pro 6 HP 4 stroke with large Mickey Mouse propeller and remote control). I built a dual trap door to cover the opening. It can be opened from the motor compartment so I am able to remove the motor if I hav...

Old winsch

Hej! While refurbishing my old winch I discovered that some small rubber bumpers are missing (broken loose). Does anybody knows who was the manufacturer of this type of winch, and if the parts are still available? If not any idea of a way to fix it so that the metal to metal contact is avoided? Than...

Cable type

Hello Sailors

I would like to install an Anchor light (LED 1,5 watts) on the mast top of my IF. What kind of cable should I use in the mast to be sure it does not produce short cuts and how should I proceed to be sure it does not get entangled with the main halyard.

Any suggestion is welcome

Motor angle in well

Hello sailors Now my boot is out of water for the winter and looking at the motor (in well) it looks some kind of weird! The shaft has an angle of about 15 degrees against vertical (it looks as if the propeller wants to overhaul the motor). Is it normal? Should the shaft not be vertical in the water...

Re: IF boot motor in Winter

Thank you all for the tips

I think I will have to thake the boot out of the water this winter. All other solutions are more complicated and would mean a lot of work before and after sailing.

Anyway thank a lot for those useful answer.
