So after various mockups (Flat footprint of 30 - vs - 25) and a 3-d model with the sump and feet attached I have stepped down to a 25. The 30 was, for lack of better terms, going to be a bitch to install due to width mostly. I did not want to push the 30 out into the cabin and extend (replace) the shaft and rebuilt the engine compartment around all of that. SO Beta 25 it is. I go from 7.4 to 7.1 regarding speed....
I have been putting info in the below talk.

Now with that said the new sails are almost done and should be shipped here in a week or so.

New sails have arrived. It will be a few months till mother winter is gone before I can "raise them". Beta 25 is approximately 3 months out so I may have a functional boat this summer. Gives me time to do other projects - sort of. No Fiberglass work till it warms up.

Working on figuring out how-where the new motor will go. May have to cut out the original engine catch and make new mounting beds.

Still no motor. Rented the lift and worked on the main and mizzen tops, new rigging and started to get the new sails configured

45-ft lift was just tall enough.

Not sure. Those were all the old stuff I took down. It actually started to crumble as I removed it.

My addition was a Davis Wind Vane on the mizzen. Both main and mizzen got new blocks and a check. All new lines (rigging) was mostly installed. What is left I can get at deck level.
