Re: Belt deflection gauge for Yanmar 3GM30F

You could use a fishing scale and a ruler, put 10kg of tension on the scale and measure the deflection with a ruler. Or just guess at what looks about right, I just make the belt "fairly tight" such...

Re: Gul Infra Drysuit (BUY OR DON'T BUY)

Gul are a well known brand outside of the US (they are an English company), they make a lot of wet (and dry) suits for divers, surfers etc. As above though, unless you are in a dingy, or a very wet...

Re: Replace Edson chain-wire setup

I didn't need messenger line, the wire rope is heavy and stiff enough to just drop down and through the holes in the base of the binnacle with little problem, YMMV though.

Re: Replace Edson chain-wire setup

I did this quite recently, there's a thread about it somewhere, pretty simple job and waaaaaay less than $700, for that much I would expect Edson to send someone up to fit it, bring champagne and...

Re: Auto vs manual inflate lifejackets

Interesting, particularly in our fairly chilly waters, I had read/watched/don't remember where, that the key advantage of the auto-inflate ones was that in getting suddenly very cold and wet, you...

Re: Pole end jamming

I find regularly exercising them, plus a good squirt of McLube (Sailkote) before each use seems to keep them pretty loose. You could also keep it on the cabin sole between races if she's primarily...

Re: Gill OS1 vs OS2 bibs

How much do you value a dry butt? Me, I'd get the best ones in my budget, and if going offshore, I'd extend the budget to get something designed for that environment.
