Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Mark,

Ment to do this earlier today......any who....

My house batter is under the nav seat, and the starting bat literally in front of the engine, behind the ingress egress steps. Heading down in a moment to the boat, if it is not too dark, I'll try to get a photo of the engine battery.

In the meantime, here is a photo of the house box area under the nav seat, sans a battery.

Hi Guy!

Back from the sail to St-Lucia. 20 hrs one way and 26 coming back (done over the long week-end). Unfortunately over half of that was motor sailing due to prevailing or sometimes no wind. But now am familiar with Rodney Bay and the excellent facilities at IGY Marina there. Also cleared Customs and Immigration etc with ease at both ends. We were lucky. A few low pressure systems were hanging around but we avoided the rain (for the most part). Coming across ships at night in particular is always a worry but we only saw one the entire passage and he was at least 10-15 miles away and cleared well ahead. (when they do 15-20 knots and you are doing 4-5 knots you really only have to worry about whats coming up behind...)
One question: I seem to take on water when on a starboard tack. Not sure why but it must come in through a thruhull above the waterline on the starboard side. Do you have this problem?

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Sounds really great.
On port tack?
Water coming in when the starboard is in the water may be the sink in the toilet - I had that problem and close the valve whenever going in bigger wind/waves.

Hi Jens,

Yes, sorry, I meant on a port tack. So you have that as well? I dont know where the water comes in from. You would think its through the sink but the sink appears dry.

Sailing at night is beautiful!

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

In my case I did not realize it until one of the crew went below in high wind and saw warter flowing up from the sink and sidewards to the side of the boat and then down, passing into the main cabin. When seeing water there before, I always believed it was due to heavy rain or wet crew members. My sink appeared dry/almost dry too. No water since I started to shut off the sink valve in heavy wind on port tack.
Best regards
Jens

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Here's an idea...I found a few "characters " here who modify boats. What if I were to put a plumb bow. Without extending the length of the boat, I could add two feet of waterline. What do you guys think?

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Last week-end we started practicing for the Round the Island Race. 60 miles clock wise around Barbados. What a 12.5 hr slog! We had moderate winds S, SE. This was fine for the West side of the Island where we had one tack all the way up. However, the Eastern side of the Island with the wind on the nose from the SE was a nightmare. The best we could do is head due East. That's the best we could point. I could not head up any closer. At one point we got a call from the Police (on land) asking us if we were OK (they thought we spent too much time in the same place).

Anyhow, I figured I need to point better. I took my main to the local Doyle sail loft and asked them to take a look. My mainsail had a concave leach which provided more sag in the sail. (not sure if I'm explaining this right). Anyhow, they recut it straight. (and fixed a few other things that needed doing on the sail. Have not tried it yet as winds this weekend were peaking at 1-5 knots... i.e. no sailing whatsoever but the seas were flat.

How are your sails cut and how high can you point? here are the recut sails:

Next stop, the Genoa..
