  1. wow that’s a lot of math. I guess if you have extended rudders on a boat I would love to know your experience. If you don’t I’ll ask for advise on the costs of boat ownership on another thread. Also 20 percent of $20000 isn’t $2000.
  2. Do it right is about $2000, 20 percent of the cost of my boat, for rudders, also it’s pretty fun building stuff.
  3. Can you be more specific on what the build looks like and material? These are fantastic! justin
  4. Has anyone tried to make their own rubber extensions by simply bolting a bigger price of metal to their current rudders?
  5. Follow up question, how do you connect the copper to the swivel?
  6. What do you guys use to connect your copper to flouro leader?
  7. My opinion- if it’s too rough in a 17 it’s too rough in a 23, and a pain in a 32. I’ve run everything in between and my general rule is don’t go out in rough weather and frankly the wave height that I don’t go out in didn’t change that much with the size of the boat. Another thing to consider is the age of the boat and how deep you want to go with just one engine. 12 miles put on a Sunday morning is different than 12 miles out on a Tuesday evening, if you use good judgment the size of the craft isn’t as important as the captain who pilots it.
  8. I have alway done #3, pull the plugs, drain the block and poor antifreeze into the hoses. I never had any issues. Frankly I think most of the people who have issues miss a plug somewhere.
  9. Does anyone know a company in the Rochester area that can haul a 30 flybridge and block it up?
  10. I have a flybridge with the autopilot on the lower helm. Needless to say my SportPilot I took off my old 21 CC isn’t doing the trick. Has anyone tried to rig a autohelm to troll with? It seem like a good fit for mechanical steering.
  11. I’ve used both pro rebuilder and golden alternator and both do great work!
