Why don't you try electric. If you need something light for racing you could use small inexpensive 30lbs thrust trolling motor. I want to have a little bit more power but I will go electric as well. My goal is to convert old 2 stroke to electric.
Thanks for the info. I will defiantly go electric. As far as trolling motors, I have seen them in action and they do not give me a good feeling of being able to master some swells and winds decently. 50lbs of thrust as a measurement is something that's hard to compare with HP or Watts. I think...
I was in dilemma should I buy electric or honda 2HP. Not a big fan of the internal combustion engines but not sure how electric motor would perform and what range would give me. So, I started doing research on trolling motors, but did not find anything that would satisfy me. So I made decision...
I like electric motor and currently I am in dilemma should I buy electric or honda 2HP. I have old capri omega and my bunk is small, but I could squeeze two 12V batteries in, I guess. Do not like to run all that cabling through the whole boat. I just want to be able to sail under power for a...
no have not. Never came to it. I actually decided not to do it, as I have many repairs to perform on my trailer. I also had to re fabricated ruder and centerboard, so there is still a lot of work in front of me before I even start doing repaint.
Let me know how yours goes.
My boat is older Capri Omega and it has been repainted ones already. I wanted to repaint it again, as old paint faded and started to chip on couple of places. However, I was wondering what paint should I use, and does it make sense to apply primer/base coat if boat has been already painted ones...
since you have a same boat as my, could you please take a look at my post about mast hosting, just to check if I have all parts necessary for hosting?
Here is my post:
Thank you in advance
I just bought Capri Omega built in 1978. It is a nice boat. However, my rudder was split in half and previous owner repaired it, and my centerboard is all bent and does not maintain a straight line when you look at it. On top of that, previous owner painted it and now all wood is...
Thanks Jim. That is what I thought. It is very hard to find any info on Capri Omega. I really like this boat and I am looking forward to some fun sailing.
I hope some other Omega owners will drop by to verify what you already said.
I just bought Capri Omega built in 1978. Great boat, and I really love it. However, before I hit a lake, I need to do some cleanup and repairs.
However, I am confused with the process how to host a mast. I attached pics of my foot of the mast and a plate that is screwed on the flor of...
