Re: Boat Delivery Boston to Florida

Hogfish is a modified sharpie, designed to handle to open ocean. It's been as far north as Maine and as far south as the Virgins. It's a rather forgiving craft, hard to capsize. Doesn't have the...

Sailingdog -

Do you have experience using sail-to-wind while close-hauled on an open ocean passage? (Because that's what I am looking for.)

The sail plan is perfectly balanced. It's a...

Actually, on most points of sail (even dead downwind) and in most conditions it is quite possible to catch some shut-eye and let the autopilot do its job. If it's too lively, I reduce sail and slow...

Well, I suppose all I can do is try. So I'll drop the $750 or so for the wind instrument, run the wires down the mast and through the hull and, and just see if it works.

The biggest issue I see in...

I am looking for somebody who has actually used the Simrad sail-to-wind rig on an ocean passage. I couldn't find any reviews.

Simrad IS20 Wind+Tillerpilot: Sail-To-Windward?

I am a happy Simrad Tillerpilot (TP32) customer. I single-hand a lot, and don't like standing at the helm all that much. One thing that I lack is the ability to go close-hauled for long periods of...

Let's take these one at a time:

1. Bad weather. As I mentioned, my set-up dealt splendidly with very large quartering waves, too much wind, etc. The balanced rudder makes all the difference.

Given enough solar panels and a wind sensor, what would be the difference?

What I ended up doing

I thought I'd close out this thread with a description of the solution I eventually worked out.

Instead of making a trim tab and using a wind vane, I redesigned the rudder blade so that it pivoted...

The surface area of the trim tab will be 20% of the effective surface area of the rudder; both the upper and the lower sections of the trim tab will do work. Based on my research, this ratio is...

A design idea

I did a rough cardboard mock-up of an idea. None of the dimensions are exactly right; it's just to illustrate the principle.

The trim tab is made up of two sections. The lower section is connected...

I got three of the two books on order, but I bet there's nothing in any of them about linkages to trim tabs on kick-up rudder blades.

I think that I will make the trim tab integral to the rudder...

I am looking for a design that I can execute myself, out of stock components, in a week or two. Since I am redoing the rudder blade, it makes sense to make the trim tab part of the effort. Having a...

Well, the designer of the wind vane is me - I don't have the cash to shell out for a Monitor or an Aries. Plus, I am replacing the rudder blade (core rot) so why not add a trim tab while I am at it?...

The boat is a 1989 Chris Morejohn 32. It's a sharpie hull, cold-moulded, fiberglass over plywood. 2-foot draft, does 6-8 knots out on the ocean. Chris is currently pondering the same question.

Trim tab linkage for a kick-up rudder blade

I am hauled out in St. Augustine, and one of the things I have to replace is the rudder blade. It's a 32-foot cutter ketch with a transom-hung rudder. It has a rudder blade that kicks up if the boat...

Maximum mizzen height for canals

I own a shoal draft cutter ketch that has a tabernacle-stepped mainmast, which I am setting up for easy lowering when going up rivers and canals, but the mizzen does not go down so easily, plus I...
