Re: Dinghy Mounts for F38

Nice boat and nice solution. I have often considered moving up to the F40/40. I sail my F38 solo a lot with an electric winch and auto helm as my back up crew. Is the F40/40 easy to single hand?

Dinghy Mounts for F38

Re: Freedom 40/40 for sale

Paul,
Lovely boat. Saw a similar model in Provincetown while we were cruising this year. Would love to upgrade from my F38...in case you want to downsize!

Ed,

Re: solar panel system setup - request for advise

I installed a Hamilton Ferris Solar kit of 4X50W flexible panels on top of the bimini.
