Re: Outboard oil mix specs

Re: Outboard oil mix specs

The problem of course is when something breaks even if it's the throttle linkage, and the oil mix is "not recommended" your warranty and oil companies will say "What did we tell you???" and then run...

Re: Our new place

Thanks very much for the invite but if you're planning on waiting for me, find a comfy place to sit. My sister has been waiting for a visit for 13 years and still nothing promising to report.:D

Re: Our new place

The island behind the other boat is Browns Island - it is small and not anchorage friendly. But that's my backyard.

My sister lives in Melbourne but we're very infrequent visitors so I know little...

Re: Outboard oil mix specs

How much older would these outboards be?

I recall in the 60's mixing 50:1 outboard oil for 2 hp Seagull outboards and doing the same mix for 250 hp racing outboards in the 1990's. I still use that...

Re: Our new place

Thanks Scott

Are you and Ellen going to be sailing New Zealand over this Xmas/New Year?

We're going to be doing the BOI and Great Barrier Island with a few other boats. I think you did BOI last...

Re: Our new place

Thanks for the good wishes guys - confirms I'm not silly pinching myself. I thought I may be over-reacting -it still feels too good to be true.



The fact that you have sailed with friends in...

Our new place

For a number of years as our ages head north, we have been looking for a property that would suit our life-long sailing lifestyle - a place to grow old and still enjoy our sailing passion.

Re: Universal M25 Knock?

Hey Paul, without wanting to pull the ring out of this, it's not about the connections to the engine, that's the easy part.

It's about where to put the gauge. It's not going to fit the original...

Re: Repower question

I don't know if it's that difficult - it's probably not a bell housing one would need but an adaptor plate to mate the existing bell housing with the engine bolt pattern. We used to do engine...

Re: Repower question

So help me understand this - "on the cheap" means go or stop? Or can you vary speed? Also do you have reverse?

And unless my rudimentary knowledge is wrong:

3hp (electric) = 2238 watts
2238...

Re: The trend in new cruising boats....

Thanks for the suggestion but nothing to check out. The scratches/gouges were there for the world to see and the new s/s plate already fitted covers, protects and looks just fine.

Re: The trend in new cruising boats....

It's even more unnerving when you inadvertently put your arm through the apparently stationary wheel to reach your glass of wine and the helmsman chooses that moment to turn into a lift. The spokes...

Re: Universal M25 Knock?

It's probably not as much of a mystery as you would think.

IMHO it is probably nothing more than a failing oil pressure sender unit. This is quite common - I have had it on my own boat and...

Re: This is getting ridiculous

Folks who are prone to seasickness know it. Folks who are not also know it.

So if you know that you are, going to sea in potentially poor weather without adequate seasickness remedies is just ever...

Re: Chain plate

Yes, looking at that it is almost exactly like ski rope so that makes it easy to replace "out there" (and easy to store spare line) which is a very good attribute. I'm not a fan of the tensioning...

Re: Chain plate

I suspect splicing the stuff is a little like the old ski rope - the line is hollow braid and you simply stuff the end into the standing part for 10 or 12 inches and it never comes loose.

How do...

Re: Chain plate

Maybe this is a thread hijack . . . . . . .

How does Dyneema compare to SS wire size for size, strength for strength, cost for cost?

In other words, what Dyneema would replace 10mm 1x19 SS...

Re: Anchoring

If the bow of your boat was a boat length from a wall, where were your anchors relative to your bow rollers? Must have been directly to port and starboard else one of them would...
