Even so, we will only fly the assym in mellow conditions (when the genny won't stay full) - and definitely not at night.
Have you looked at running with the main down, the genoa poled out and asym flying opposite the genoa? Probably wouldn't have to steer.

ps. I've only done this once when visiting in Sweeden. Felt like a freight train compared to WoW.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

In my mind flying a chute short handed with the main down is asking for a problem if/when the wind picks up.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Nice Smack.

After our rig was done we found all our nav lights were put back incorrectly. If we turned on the deck level Nav lights the anchor light would aldo come on. If we turned on the steamer then the deck level lights came on with the trilight etc etc. Easy to fix, but annoying none the less.

How much was the iMux if you don't mind me asking??? I am pretty keen to go that way as well.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Speaking of electrical use, I made this spreadsheet to calculate it, and find out what solar/batteries you need, and how long you'll need to run your engine.

You should be able "make a copy" to edit. Change values in the yellow boxes.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

nice write up!

BTW I have the same LEDs and had the same fit issue in some of my fixtures. You can take a dremmel to the bulbs and slice off that big plastic cover ... leave a bit of a plastic rim to give you enough leverage to insert the bulb, maybe 1/4 inch. as long as the fixture protects the now exposed guts they will be fine.

the only concern with the exposed guts would be moisture. Mine have been exposed for 3 yrs now and its pretty dang moist in NC.

What's maddening is that they charged a total of $1,200 for JUST recommissioning the mast and pulling the wire. THEN they screwed all that up!

The iMux is a wireless transmitter what pushes NMEA/AIS/Seatalk data to a device such as an iPad/iPhone. This way you can have multiple chartplotters on a boat using as many devices as you want. It might work with other non-Apple devices - I don't know. I just got it because we are going to use i-devices on our boat, with the iNavX charting application. It's really pretty incredible:

iMux - The Brookhouse NMEA 0183 Wifi multiplexer

There are other similar devices out there (for AIS, etc.) - but this one had the best all-round capability I could find. In my next write-up, I'll explain how I set everything up, including the AIS. It's a little complicated - but it's awesome.

Cool! Thanks brist! I'll give that a shot.

Wow VT!!!! Thanks!!!! The copy worked great and I now have it in Drive.

This will be very, very helpful. I understand the basics, but honestly, electrical and diesel work are still black-holes I'm feeling my way through.
