Looks a bit less fragile in this installation.

The small ship is an 80 ft, 23.92m converted, Swedish, ice capable rescue boat.

With no personal experience I have to say the electrically powered, small drive units, flexible installation positioning, including single unit to dual pair, variable positioning based on speed ("adaptive rake"), zero speed capability of the rolling fins looks pretty darn good.

Here's a link to their commercial page which is more pulled together than the recreational site.

"Should I just call t he local rigger and say fix me up with everything, and is it really worth it? (staysail)"

If you are at a marina it should be easy to borrow a sail to try out from one of the sailboats there.

Just measure the hoist you can use and measure their sail is shorter before borrowing it.

Hello,
I would like to congratulate and thank you for all the videos you have posted concerning your refit. Here in Canary Island, Lanzarote where I am berthed with my North Sea Trawler 57 BALDER VIII,I obliged a local technician to watch it to help me explaining what I need as a back up to my hydraulic Keypower stabs. We plan to cross next year and I will not do the 2000 nm trip without paravanes and fish.
My boat is fully loaded more or less 60 metric tons in very strong steel. The guys here want to build my paravanes in stainless steel tube 90mm diameter, length 6meters. I am afraid about the weight.....

I'm confused by this thread, as to who is doing what, with what.

1st question, 2,000 nm to where?
2nd , what kind of paravanes do you have or are contemplating?

I am talking about the videos posted on youtube by Seaventures who did a very serious work on his trawler.( title 'myrefit is done") This an aluminium structure with an A frame and a crow nest.
Second question, 2000nm, is more or less the distance I will sail from Canary Islands to Caribean.
Iam confident with my KEYPOWER hydraulics stabs but I prefer have a plan B, basic system like paravanes and rig, like Robert Beebe discribed it in his book.
As I explained in my message, sorry with broken english, paravanes stabilizers are not very known in Europe and more oftenly considered as a bad idea or wrong concept, too much weight in the height, commercial look, ugly rig etc..
Considering my trawler, I am not afraid to add these paravanes if they are efficient, my only concern, find the right people to imagine the all the system and install it on my steel boat in the most solid location on the flybridge.

Ok
Thanks.

2,000 miles won't get you to the Caribbean, it's more like 2700 nm from Hiero, or whatever that western most island is called.

My paravane rig is neither top heavy nor bulky and is easy to modify.

Details are on one of my blog posts.

In GB the purpose of most bilge keels is so the vessel can be aground , frequently on a mooring, and stay upright.

With deep tides it makes sense.

Perhaps the addition of bilge keels would make more financial sense if upright was a useful task.

Distance between capo verde mindelo to barbados is around 2100 nm. I did this passage 30 yearscago with my beloved ketch Fisher Balder IV...

This Vid “How it’s made” on the machining and assembly of the Seakeeper Gyros recently came out. 10 mins long. Interesting to watch if you enjoy seeing stuff get made.

Oh, well you said, Canaries, but you meant Cape Verde Islands.
Watch out for pirates.
