Re: Rudder Failures

Smack,

Assuming that an autopilot could impart more force to the rudder than hand stearing, which under normal circumstances I doubt, that's what the shear pin in the system is for. Long before...

Re: Electric repower ideas

Canuck,

You need to redo your consumption numbers. The correct comparison between a diesel burning .4gallons/hr is about 6.7kw, not 2 (the actual number is 18hp/gallon). This is why renewables for...

Re: Electric repower ideas

The major problem with electric conversions is the range. Make no mistake about it, there is no technology we have or is even in the pipeline that will make electric vessels capable of storing more...

Re: Wooden Turkish Gulet? Are they good charter sailboats?

I am not saying that wooden ships couldn't last longer, but that they weren't expected to. The British navy for example was replaced on average every 14 years (see The Arming and Fitting of English...

Re: Electric repower ideas

I don't see any glaring issues. You seem to be reasonable about expected range and capability which is normally the major problem with these threads.

I would suggest getting a small 2kw honda...

Re: Wooden Turkish Gulet? Are they good charter sailboats?

Keep in mind that traditional wooden vessels were assumed to have a useful life of less than 20 years. While a 20 year old fiberglass vessel is just getting ready for new electronics. Putting a...

Re: Cost of starting an Indo Surf/Dive Charter biz??

The Turkish Gullets I saw while there were not sailboats. They may have had a mast, but most of them couldn't have sailed for the life of them. Heck half didn't even have sails, just a lot of random...

Re: Queasy crewmember? The "old standards" still work...

Very very true. I always mention to people that Ellen MacArthur gets notoriously seasick when she first sets out. And there aren't many people in the world with as many sailing miles as she has.

Re: Queasy crewmember? The "old standards" still work...

I keep candied ginger on the boat. It will last almost forever if it's kept dry and studies show it really does work.

Same for those acupuncture bands that go on the wrist. As skeptical as I was...

re: I'm looking for an easy boat to sail in Hawaii

Bruce,

Honestly I can think of a lot of boats that may fit your needs, but living in Hawaii I think you are really stuck with what you can find locally. I just don't see any way to buy a boat and...

re: Onboard: Electric stove or other?

There really is no one right answer. Pretty much every option has some advantages and some drawbacks. On large boats with substantial battery banks an induction cook top can be a great addition since...

Re: Contract for voluteer crew

I would send the bill to the owner and demand reimbursement. He changed the terms of your contract and is responsible for the cost outlay you incurred as a result. Probably not worth using over, but...

Re: Contract for voluteer crew

I would never sign this. After seeing this I wouldn't even step on the boat in case it would be considered tacit agreement of this nonsense. Heck I may...

Re: Fastest Boats

Re: Spinnaker shackles

Faster,

When dealing with dyneema it isn't the strength loss from the knot so much as it is the knot undoing itself as the line slides past itself. Depending on size dyneema has shown a propensity...

Re: Spinnaker shackles

Tying knots for racing is pretty poor practice. Not only does it restrict your selection of line since many high tech lines shouldn't be knotted, a knot is always weaker than a splice. Combined with...

Re: Spinnaker shackles

I can't tell you how much I hate those piston shackles. As you experienced they are very prone to opening, and it's difficult to guarantee that the shackle is fully closed.

They are far from...

In that case just use strait dyneema. It works fine on horn cleats.

Re: Replacing Two Part Halyards with Spectra

For a Lido I would probably just go to strait dyneema and make sure your cam cleats are in good shape. Your halyards are pretty lightly loaded, so I wouldn't worry to much about adding tails. It just...
