Because its there !! no antifouling/no weed, no on/off the trailer all the time !!,and allready have the mooring !!! but thanks for the post
Selling the Melges after 5 years, lookes like its going to Norway, When i bought the hoist, the idea was to use for other things, all i have to do, is change the front bunk, to fit the hull Vee
Thanks all, that the info i was looking for, was working on around the ton and half mark, Barnet, recon you can go about 10 longer that the 6 meter for the 2.5 hoist, so will be looking around the 6.5-7 mt mark,
Not check engine weights, but presume outboards are lighter the inboard's?
