Re: eliminated engine...wheres my negative? jajaja

Actually, like many high-quality yacht designs, it's from New Zealand... :rolleyes:

They are mostly all at least partly home-built (the intent of the design is that they can be made by a...

Re: eliminated engine...wheres my negative? jajaja

Glad to hear you got it sorted out in the end.

If you are looking for a great trailer sailor, buy a Hartley TS18 or a TS21 if you can find one. (I'm not biased at all, really I'm not... ) :D

Re: Rounding Up - sail trim advice?

Explorer, you should always uncleat a fixed topping lift after the main is hoisted - especially in heavy weather - because (a) it's likely to flap around and catch on something when you least want it...

Re: Rounding Up - sail trim advice?

Vang tension is faster when beating in moderate (not heavy) shifting conditions like you get smallish lakes and in the shadow of buildings to maintain sail-shape either beyond the reach of the...

Re: Rounding Up - sail trim advice?

Actually, that's where the vang comes in. If it's nice and tight-ish on the beat, dumping the main in a gust by whatever means chosen shouldn't cause the boom to lift significantly..

Re: Rounding Up - sail trim advice?

First off, welcome to Sailnet, Explorer!.. :)



Secondly, IMHO with the mainsheet on hard, the vang doesn't do all that much on the beat and on most boats is somewhat slack.

Any level of...

Re: Paint for Cabin

To work properly, CPES needs a reasonably rubbish-free substrate to penetrate into. It isn't hard to guess what else may have penetrated into the timber down there already and what your nice clean...

I think you already know the answer to that. To find out what is really going on down there, you're going to have to get them out... and then use a hundred bucks worth of CPES to either (1) help fix...

Re: Paint for Cabin

Shisaisama, if that's what you're up against, I would suggest going with the two-pack undercoat option. If the colour is close (presumably "white" - whatever that is) you might get lucky and only...

Glad to help, shisaisama :)

Not being in your country I know nothing of Benjamin Moore but have heard good things about Valspar.

I doubt you'll find a flexible two-pack undercoat. You have two...

Re: Paint for Cabin

You may not need a primer, but you still need an undercoat.

HS is correct, but the other thing to keep in mind is that timber hulls expand and contract, so ideally you need a top-coat that's...

Re: Volvo Engines

Donna, if it helps, a handy rule-of-thumb is to ask questions if the engine is more than 20 years old. If the owners can show it's been rebuilt, that's probably quite okay - but if they can't, then...

Re: Volvo Penta MD6b Cold Start System

That might still be fixable in-situ, Scott. First thing to do in that case would be to pull the injectors, check them and do a full and accurate compression test on each cylinder - since it still...

Yes.. it becomes the guy. Confused yet?!?



That's because the diagram is looking from the mast-top. In real life, what it's doing is pulling in and down on the "guy" to help keep the windward...

Re: Spinnaker guys and sheets

Personal preference perhaps, but I like to use a line with a bit of stretch so I don't break anything (like the pole) when the spinnaker snap-fills after my absent-minded crew allows it to partially...

Re: Volvo Penta MD6b Cold Start System

Hmm... I'm a tad surprised to hear removing the injectors is such a big deal, but if the engine runs ok (doesn't blow copious amounts of smoke) once it IS running, then that is probably not the first...

Re: Starter or battery?

..What Stu says.. :)

It could also be burned-out contacts on the solenoid itself... but it does sound like an engine ground/battery connections issue to me.

Drop the dinghy (sand, grapnel) anchor over the bow just outside the shore-break.
