Drip Pan material

I think it's high time I installed a drip pan under this stubborn engine of mine - not so much to catch anything leaking out of it, but to catch the stuff I spill all over it when checking levels and...

Re: engine size?....

FWIW, my 6-ton classic was originally fitted with a Henry Meadows 25hp donk. 20 years later the owner upgraded that to a 35hp Peugeot. Fast forward another 20 years and it's fitted with a 40hp...

Re: Copper sheeting & CopperCoat anti-fouling

No, Fstbttms - it's based on the personal experience of a kid messing around on other people's wooden yachts..

Re: Copper sheeting & CopperCoat anti-fouling

Re: Centerboard raising options?

Understand completely. I felt exactly the same way when I replaced the rusty steel winch on the Hartley - although a 25-buck trailer winch most probably has a fixed handle which will be a PITA to get...

Re: Copper sheeting & CopperCoat anti-fouling

True enough.. however, unlike the alternatives of the time, it did provide a surface that fouling organisms could be fairly easily removed from without too much hard scrubbing.

Re: Centerboard raising options?

On our small Hartley (in fact a lot of Hartleys) the winch was mounted on top of the centerplate case near the mast to keep it out of the way, but the aft end of the centercase is a better spot on...

Re: Centerboard raising options?

I'd suggest (1) mounting the cheapest stainless-steel trailer winch you can buy at the cockpit end of the centreboard case and (2) tying your rope around the centreboard block itself. That way you...

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

They look like a nice little boat... though at over two tonnes on trailer and lots of windage it wouldn't be a pleasant experience towing one. Anyways, a Hartley TS21 would sail rings around it. :)
