Re: Sealord Owners

Hola Joe, I have no idea but will also be interested to find out more...it would be about the only bit I haven't had out of my sealord. I was asked just the other day how I would do it...only thing I could think of was a chainsaw. Why does it have to come out? Have you seen the sealord thread in 'Ge...

Foot outhaul, Kemp/Selden boom

Hola, I'm looking to change the foot outhaul on my Sealord boom which I think is a pre Selden Kemp. The wire end is fine but the 20 yo rope at the forward end is well past its prime......

One further thought...I have only ever been aboard one Oceanlord....built -I think - about 94/95

I have a copy of a full stability calc done on an Oceanlord in the Hamble..(its on the boat and not close to hand...) However as I recall the Oceanlord missed out on the highest rating ( 1?) by a whisker ...angle of vanishing stability about 1* shy of the required number. Surveyor noted that this co...

Excellent seaboat, good passagemaker and lots and lots of room downstairs. I don't think ...
