Paulo, I think we spent time in some of the same places this summer - the eastern Med is wonderful.

Re: Need help, rolling furling get stuck after unwinding 5 feet of sail

I had the same problem, and in my case as well, the top swivel was binding. It was a lousy furling system, and I replaced it with an Alado roller furling system and never had a problem since. The...

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Earlier in the year we were anchored off "Old Town" Ko Lanta in Thailand when we heard all kinds of racket outside the boat. Something was hitting the side of the boat and deck. Going outside we saw...

Re: Need help, rolling furling get stuck after unwinding 5 feet of sail

This is a common issue and there have been a lot of discussions about it in previous threads. The "halyard wrap" problem occurs when the top portion of your halyard, from top roller to the top...

Re: Need help, rolling furling get stuck after unwinding 5 feet of sail

Yeah is is most likely halyard wrap. I assume you have already made sure any spare halyards you might have aren't interfering. You can also try changing the halyard tension to see if it releases.too...

Re: Need help, rolling furling get stuck after unwinding 5 feet of sail

If you look at the top swivel, can you see the halyard wrapping around the forestay? If that's all looking OK (i.e. not wrapping), then you could have an over-wrap on the furling line inside the...

Re: Does anyone work on the Internet while sailing?

If that is $40 per month everyone would be using it. Thats what I pay for crap wifi.
I understand broadband like that on boats is $5,000 per month.

Ring them and find out what the catch is.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm going to be begging for some hints here.

I'd hazard a guess that we are in Uraguay and that is a river not a canal, but that is all I have got.

Re: Le Guen Hemidy 30

I think you could do better for $50,000. The boat looks quite crude in the construction details. It almost looks home built. I'd like to see a better overall view of the hull.
