Re: Winches slipping

My money is still on the Ratchet gears (#13 and/or 20 on schematic) installed upside down. From what I can tell by looking at the file you posted it is possible. The pawls can only go into the pawl...

The Sloop John B

Re: Untwisting jib sheets?

Damn, that seems like a lot of work for a line that's just going to have the problem again.

Re: Untwisting jib sheets?

How about tying one end to the main halyard, and hoisting it up. Let it hang for a bit. Or tie a weight to the bottom to help it unwind.

Cigar - Romeo Y Julieta - Reserva Real

Diet Coke - (I know, should be Macallan)

Re: Pimp my dinghy!

While technically I think you're right there, I honestly don't think I've seen many dingy in my harbor use a 360* nav light. Most have none, a flashlight is all I've ever used. I've never heard of...

Re: Winches slipping

If you took the whole winch apart and reassembled it, you could have put the ratchet gear on backwards. (I think it's called that) The gear the pawls click into. It's easy to do and will seem ok...

I'm thinking of doing the underwater lights as well, think they would work on an inflatable bottom dingy?

Cool, thanks for the write up.

I mostly keep it out of the bag tho unless...

Mount it on the wall in your office/den, call it "Nautical Art".

My garage has more than a few art pieces in it :rolleyes:

Re: Sailboat Junkyard - Apple Valley
