Re: Which ones have ship wheel/helm and no tiller?

They will have engine controls in the cockpit. I would suggest that before you look for a small ocean going boat, you actually go and look at a boat, any boat, and try to get an idea of what one...

Re: Need help, rolling furling get stuck after unwinding 5 feet of sail

If you look at the top swivel, can you see the halyard wrapping around the forestay? If that's all looking OK (i.e. not wrapping), then you could have an over-wrap on the furling line inside the...

Re: New Father...Advice needed on sailing with kids

I read a while back, can't remember where, that the best sort was from a place that did hockey net, you could buy it by the yard and a fraction of "marine" netting but it held up well.

Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

If they are powder ones, take them off the mount every 6 months, hold them upside down and give the bottom a sharp tap with a rubber mallet, ensures that the power isn't settling to form a block at...

Re: single-hand: best time raise/lower jib?

I always raised the main directly into wind (slugs get stuck otherwise), then turned off onto a very close haul on starboard tack. Tighten the port sheet up a bit (not too much) and hoist the jib. ...

Flew my symmetrical for the first time

Got fed up waiting for someone to come with me and lend a hand, so this evening I took the boat out and finally got the symmetrical spinnaker up. Not the smoothest hoist, still a few kinks to work...

Re: Help! 3GMD won't start.

Fuel system needs bleeding. Had the same thing, thought I had done a wonderful job, engine ran for a few minutes, coughed splutter, stop. No restart.

Re: C & S 27 - In hull transducer

CS or C&C? If the latter, what year? Up until the MkV they were solid, don't know about the MkV though.

Re: Yanmar 1GM issues

The noise is likely diesel knock, it'll be worse if the timing is also out but mine does something similar if you try and accelerate too quickly, it's not exactly the world's most responsive engine...

Re: Sailboat that can be beached???

We used to launch a Mirror dinghy from the beach all the time, sails lowered, centreboard in the slot ready to push down, rudder raised. Push out to about mid-thigh depth (if that), push off and...

Re: Yanmar 1GM issues

Could also be knocking caused by bad timing, if you don't have a shop manual for the engine, let me know and I can email you a link.

Re: One Motor mount or all ?

I'd probably replace them all while I was at it, the bulk of these jobs is usually labour costs and I can't imagine it is significantly more to change all four over one. You'll only have to do the...

Re: Threadbare Gelcoat

It's the gelcoat worn away, mine has several spots like that, some previous owner must have had a very abrasive rear end. Only fix really is to repaint the deck, and I'll get around to that at some...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

I think the main problem with catamarans is that they are, almost without exception, ugly.
My wife would probably love one, she doesn't like heeling. The space would be nice. Their ability to go...

Re: Am I my Brothers Keeper?

If the guy wants it, sell it. His choice, all you can do is voice your opinion. No different to letting a new driver buy a Ferrari. What is it with the constant nannying in society these days?
