Forum Fund Raiser Status

Hi All,
I appreciate that a number of folks have asked about contributing to a forum fundraiser to defer the licensing and operating costs. I will be posting something in a month or two with options for contributing. I took care of all the initial costs of out pocket for now to ensure we are covered in the transition. More to follow in the New Year.

  • 30" draft on 28

    Does this mean I need 30" from the center of the bottom of the hull or is it from my water line?

    30" from the waterline.

      Is that to the bottom of the hull or prop and rudder. I am just wondering what is the least amount of water I need to clear the bottom.


      • #4
        You'd require 30" of water to make headway without anything (rudders, wheels or hull) grounding.

          38 for older CC's's

          My 98 CC originally had 38" from waterline to bottom of the rudder; after reengining anc changing running gear I am now at 36".

          The bottom of the hull may be only 30", but unless the hull config. has changed recently; your running gear is still a few inches below the bottom of the keel.

          Also - remember, 4 guys, gear, bait, ice, water, etc. add's up to another 1000-1500 pounds; dropping the hull another inch or inch and a half in the water.

          My rule of thumb is I need 4' and want 6...
