Newport Traveler pictures

Thanks for your help Werebeagle....

No, photos aren't hosted can't put a link in here...But I do have something posted on the Capital Yachts owner's page, so maybe I'll start documenting all my projects and putting them up there...that guy's very responsive to putting submissions up there quickly!

....see the little paperclip up in the toolbar when you're posting a reply...that's how to attach photos in this forum....

...but maybe that feature isn't really turned on or something?

I'll wait a day and see if it works tomorrow.

werebeagle Are the photos hosted on the web already. I'm not sure how to post photos directly to this site, but I do links to my photobucket account.

Boom/Traveler pictures for Newport 27

Let me try this again, now that my Post count is supposedly high enough (12).....Here's those pictures......

Nope,....still won't accept them !

Maybe there's some time-delay of the site checking my "quota" ? I'll try tomorrow.

werebeagle Don't know about that. I was well past ten posts when the post limit was added. But you're past ten posts now, so it should work for you now.

Pictures of Traveler Rigging blocked

I thought maybe that was it (10 post issue), but the little box down in the lower left of the screen, that tells me what I can do, says I "MAY post attachments." Wouldn't it say "MAY NOT" if that were the case?

It's not a malfunction, it's a spam blocker. You need to have 10 posts before you can post photos of links. Prior to that feature, there were numerous spam posts.

Newport Boom-Traveler Rigging

Sorry Freddie....some idiot malfunction on this site refuses to accept a single picture I try to attach....even after resizing them all the way down to a tiny 640x480 with a max file-size of 88k! If you want to send me your email address, and/or try a private message through this site to send the email address, I'll send you the full-size, hi-res pictures I took.

Traveler arrangements

Thanks Denise...I did manage to get it strung right just from reasoning it out, and from KeelHaulin's description.

Freddie, I'll take some pictures of my 27's setup tomorrow after work and send them tomorrow night or Saturday. I just tried sending you a private message, to trade email addresses, but this forum won't let me have private messages until I post I'll try attaching pictures here in the Public forum tomorrow.

I presume the 27 is set up the same as the 30. Mine's a 1983...what year is your 30?

When you say 4 winches, two in the "middle"...what do you mean "middle" ? Mine has one on each side of the hatch, on top of the cabin...the one on the port side of the hatch is for winching up the main and jib, obviously one at a time....the one on the starboard side is for handling the main boom sheet ...then there's one on each side of the cockpit, obviously for handling the jib on each side of the boat.

deniseO30 Stenn if you simply do a net search with the words harken mainsheet controls you will see quite a few Main sheet controls and traveler arrangements. good luck!
