Re: Crew dynamics

Thanks. The Wiki entry for cabin fever seems to tick the right boxes!

Re: Crew dynamics

Your comments are valid. I should never have started this thread. I would be grateful if you could delete the texts you quoted in case they may cause offence
Cheers

Re: plotting software

You're right, down to £15 and VAT up to 20%, but if the value of the package is marked as zero, no problem. Thanks.

Re: plotting software

Last time I bought something from the US I got stung for VAT and £8 for the Post Office to apply the charge, as the value of the item was more than £18 and it was not a gift. So much for the 'special...

Re: plotting software

Thanks. I have ordered it. Vector is my preferred format. Hope I don't get stung for VAT plus £8 to have it applied by the post office!

Re: plotting software

Ok, downloaded and installed, but I can't find any UK charts. Where do I find them? Chartworld has the one I want, but the format is s-63, an encrypted format not supported by open cpn.

More appropriate for an ocean voyage, but thanks

plotting software

We have a Simrad plotter which, in my opinion, is counter intuitive and since the installation of a 'german' mainsail control system, it is hard to access and peering over the mainsheet controlling...

Re: Crew dynamics

Clearly far too much said, mostly on my part. I'm inclined to agree with BubbleheadMD! I have noticed how some threads on bulletin boards generally seems to spark 'lively' chain reactions.

Re: Lewmar winch problem

Problem solved. Using a large vice and a ruler, I squeezed the locking arm in 3 mm. We tested it under load in a force 6 and it behaved perfectly, unlike a female crewmember, who overtly showed signs...

Re: Simple genoa question

I believe that the genoa is a 120%, having done some recalculations of the fore-triangle, which required re-routing some dormant brain cells. But the skipper has now invested in an asymmetric...

Re: Lewmar winch problem

Lewmar don't have a spare in stock and suggest we put the plate in a metal vice

Re: Lewmar winch problem

Turns out the locking arm is bent slightly upwarsd and outwards, less than 2 mm but just enough for the tailing sheet to get caught in it, forcing out the key of the self tailing mechanism, allowing...

Re: Lewmar winch problem

Hopefully all will be resolved at the weekend, but the skipper has a dodgy knee fom planting grapevines and my physiotherapist has advised against strenuous repetitive tasks for the time being. I...

Re: Lewmar winch problem

Thanks for the info on winches. As I said, all the other winches are at '8 o'clock' and work perfectly and are the same type. 5 is very close to 4 and there must have been a good reason why the...

Re: Lewmar winch problem

Thank you. It is brand new, Staring down into the hole where the handle goes, it all looks user unfriendly, all sealed. Skipper seems to think you can sort it with a screwdriver but clearly not the...

Lewmar winch problem

We recently had 2 new winches fitted for the jib sheets. One works perfectly but the other snags the sheet, more often than not. Looking at the other winches, the locking plate lug (sorry, no idea...

Re: Simple genoa question

Hence the term 'towable car', which I now understand. In 'either or' guesswork, I usually get it wrong, like weather or lee helm!

Re: Simple genoa question

It strikes me that as the genoa can be furled, we could dispense with the jib. There are 2 problems with that idea. Firstly, when reefed, the genoa tends to unfurl because the jamb is not up to the...

Re: Simple genoa question

On this occasion, genoa only was a good choice. The skipper had achieved his main objective, testing the new German mainsheet system, on the previous day and as it was cold and very wet with the...

Re: Simple genoa question

The boat has a self-tacking rig. It's very useful when close hauled and frequent tacks are required when cruising with a crew of 2. That's all, in my opinion.

Simple genoa question

Recently heading for home on a 43 ft Hanse on a cold, very wet and windy day, the skipper was all for simply motoring all the way, but I suggested it was easy enough to unfurl the genoa and save...
