Re: Our New Boat

Mel,
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. Just one clarification, you said "I thought I wanted a asym on it's own roller but found out it doesn't work well."

Is the problem the cut of the sail or that the furler doesn't work well?

Re: Our New Boat

From my chat with some sailmakers, the non torque rope that is used to roll the sail is not fool proof yet and has some bugs to work out.

Re: Our New Boat

We are having great luck with a North Sails G0 (their marketing for code zero for cruisers) using a shaefer roller. To make it work well, we have a 7/8 rig, and we built the anchor roller a little longer than usual to get the whole thing in front of the jib. YMMV, but it's become my favorite sail. The roller has given me no problems. I typically set it up before sailing on a light wind day. If it pipes up, I just roll it, like a solent rig.

Man, building new is exciting!

Re: Our New Boat

The boat sounds great, and it's been interesting reading about your upgrades and working with Catalina on them. Hope the next 8 months go swiftly for you!

Re: Our New Boat

My current boat just passed survey with flying colors. So next we are leaving Sunday with 3 fellow Sailneters to help me delivery my boat to St Simons, GA. Now let us all give presents to the sea gods for T/S Doreen to keep turning west.
Of course my broker called me in the middle of the survey that he has a "HOT" buyer that wants to look at my boat this sunday when we are leaving. Not sure what to do here.

Have you checked that a 100 amp charger can run on the honda? I have a pair of 40 amp chargers and the honda 2k will just barely run with both. Only 13 amps continuous output. Perhaps add a second 40 to the one already installed? Good 3 stage smart chargers can run in tandem.
I added a Yandina combiner and now have a set and forget charging setup. No 1/2 switches to mess with. Been working fantastic for couple of years now. Yandina offers excellent support

Re: Our New Boat

I thought of a second 40 amp charger but I am not sure how it would work in tandem. I am not that smart. Maybe someone with electrical experience would chime up. I was told the Honda will barely run the 100 amp charger. I am looking at upgrading the Honda to a larger unit to mount where a normal generator goes. I will tackle that project this winter after I get the boat.
