PBzeer Gil - I came in from the Inlet, to SeaPath YC, now at anchor there by the bridge to the beach. Yes, I'll be going back out by the Inlet to Beaufort.

Hawkeye25 The great thing about hearing these foibles is how it brings me back to when I did the same things. Did I ever tell you about one day when I was in a big rush to set a spinnaker and mixed up the halyard and the sheet and set the sail sideways? You just can't hide that kind of thing in the middle of a fleet rounding the first mark.

hellosailor Oh, John, that explains everything. You've simply been victimized by British Engineering. (They should have stopped at time machines and victorian steam engines, they did those very nicely.< G >)

Rig a large mirror in the cabin, so that it bathes the engine compartment in full sunlight whenever you are exposed to it. And wear cloves of garlic. Working with silver tools, or at least silver plated tools, also can help. < VBG >

John,
I used to live on S. Lumina Ave in Wrightsville Beach, so you are in my old stompin' grounds. Actually learned to sail in the sound behind the island. Did you come up the ICW from Southport? I presume you will be going outside via Masonboro Inlet. Best to do that at slack tide. The inlet could really stack the waves up if the wind and current were coming from opposite directions. We are all enjoying your trip reports.

brak Wait, so what WAS the O-ring for?

hellosailor John, I think SD nailed that one. Nah, it sounds more like you accidentally got into an Apprentice Redneck certification program. Except they don't drink tea, either.

Maybe you're a closet Englishman? Trying to convert your filter into a quality Lucas product? (There's a reason Jaguars had two separate fuel tanks.)

Boasun The best way to learn about sail boats and all of its components is to learn from OTHER People's mistakes.
Thank you for the info on that O ring. But the O ring goes in the grove of the top flange.
