Sails and Canvas / Re: loose or fixed foot

Here it is from Precision Sails.  Changed the tack angle from 88.6 to 85.4.  It will rase the boom 7".  At 88.6 it was 1" off the dodger.  I know it will stretch over the years, the one I have now have to put dodger down to be able to sail.

Just to let you know, I found the oil leak.  Eight years ago I put on an remote oil filter on to better access the filter.  The oil lines to the remote was against the bulkhead and finally rubbed a hole in it.  Replaced hoses and all is good.  No new motor needed.

I am looking at a Bata 25 to put in the 323.  I have found a place in Indonesia.  Its name is   (Marine Power Engine).  He is selling the new motor for $3,200.00 shipping $435.00.  That is close to 7,000.00 less than the places in america.  Is this a scam or has any one purchased from this company?

I have replaced my lifelines with a gate.  I thought I saw somewhere on this site that someone needed some lifelines for a 323.  If you know who it was they can have the ones I took off cheep...  If you know who it was, let me know.

Looking for a 3 blade prop for my Pearson 323.  It has an 1 1/8" shaft and Volvo MD11 diesel I am not sure of the size or pitch it should be.  I believe it should be left hand.  Used good shape or new.
Thanks, Dick                              I am tired of not being able to back up...

The ball end is part of the throttle shaft on the motor it does not unscrew.  I will keep looking.  The threaded end to the plastic piece  is 5mm or 10-32, not sure of ball size will have to measure this weekend.  I had better hurry leaving for our annual race in Southport.NC Thursday the 28th.  If I have to use zip ties to hold it on I will...
