Cape Dory 28 Sport experiences. Looking seriously at purchasing a 1989 280 Sport with 200hp volvo diesel. Any info and pros or cons would be helpful. Is exhaust an issue? How do they fair in head or following seas? Any good ideas for seating solutions, we have a fairly large family. Thanks
I saw your message about the 38 Wesmac hull. I currently have a 28 Albin and a real itch to step things up. I would prefer it made into an overnight/cruiser/fishing private boat. What is a ball park number all if worked on this together?
Hello, I am interested to see your engine space. I have a Cummins 420 and recently cut my floor to repower. I like the look of your brace (FRP brace?). Would you care to share more pics of the floor in the deckhouse? [email protected].
Hello Sir-My boat is in Huntington Harbor.Today someone forwarded me yet another set of rules regarding the waterfront.If you would not mind,where are you getting your info from and where can a Recreational boat load up with diesel? Can not wait to see your Custom 38' Flowers.Unbelievable achievement.Congratulations. Regards, Clay
Are you still using a stern mounted transducer? Can you give me some details on how u set your up please? I am thinking of pulling the trigger on a side scan unit(raymarine) and although nothing makes you feel alive like cutting a hole in your boat, especially below the waterline, i don’t really want to spend a ton of dough at the moment either. Thanks bud
I want to find out if that is accurate. I would like to target swords off the edge during the day. My other options would be the R109 at 2kw and the R509 at 3kw which would both do the job but get pricey.
You said that you went with the B275 LH-W and that you were happy with it. I think you said that you mostly fish up on the bank but occasionally go off the edge. Do you recall how deep you've used the low freq and how the performance was? Airmar's literature that you can expect coverage to 3000 feet with the B275.
