Re: Light-light air!!! Exciting stuff?

I have often found that light air racing can be more exhausting than a breezy race. Mentally it takes far more concentration, and physically you can find yourself sitting in much less comfortable...

Re: Marine AC fan upgrade?

Is it your condenser or your evaporator that is freezing up?

Evaporator freeze up may be a symptom of low on refrigerant but not always. When a system is low on refrigerant the evaporator pressure...

Re: Two headsail Halyards?

It sounds like they are both Genoa Halyard a. You probably also have a twin groove foil on your forestay if it is an ex race boat. Multiple halyards on race boats is common on older masthead race...

Re: Mermaid A/C Issue

Don't ask me! We don't have that problem around here. The only time we have to backflush condensers is when the chemical treatment guys don't do their job on heat pump loops. I don't do domestic...

Re: Jib catches while tacking

Fair enough but you have to admit baggywrinkles and ratlines are going to look pretty goofy on an Oday 27, which is , after all, the boat the op owns. If the op would provide information and pics I...

Re: Mermaid A/C Issue

Re: Ho-hum... sorry, another fabulous (dry) summer in BC...

Re: Mermaid A/C Issue

That is probably what it was; insufficient water flow is by far the #1 cause of high pressure safety trips, as that is it's primary function...to protect the system in the event of lost flow.

Re: Scared of inboards and the Volvo md7a

Well, you certainly have a hate on for Volvo! Perhaps it is your local supplier that is gouging you! I bought all the parts to rebuild my Volvo, and although they weren't all dirt cheap, I don't...

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: Mermaid A/C Issue

The other problem that show up as companies transition to R410a is that it is not nearly as forgiving of poor piping practices. With the old refrigerants they could get away with brazing pipes...

Re: Mermaid A/C Issue

Yeah if it is a pressure switch that is tripping it is likely a high pressure safety . A picture of the unit and which switch is tripping would help. Feel the temperature difference between water in...

Re: Scared of inboards and the Volvo md7a

My boat has a '79 MD7a. When we originally looked at the boat the engine started easily but was a bit smokey. There is no hour meter on the boat, and no service records to speak of but I took the...

Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

Yes, buying a non refillable disposable extinguisher is an option. If you're ok with chucking them in the garbage and buying a new ones every few years. I prefer to buy better quality safety...

Re: Pimp my dinghy!

Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

I don't think there is any special connections because we have had different companies do it over the years. More likely it is a volume deal. One or two guys over the course of the weekend checking...

Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

Lol! Maybe so, but it takes the onus off the volunteers that do the safety inspections, and it satisfies the requirements of the insurance companies. The fact that one's boat gets an annual safety...

Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

Once in a while the fire company that does our safety inspections brings in a fire pan and lets everyone who wants to try putting the fire out. It is a great idea! I think everyone should try it so...

Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

Like almost all yacht clubs in our area, an annual safety inspection is mandatory and is a condition of mooring both at the home port and using club outstations. Part of those safety inspections is...

Re: Jeanneau SO 379

Yeah there was a SF35 on the market recently, but we are not ready to pull the trigger on a new boat yet. Haven't seen a 39iP, but I did like the 36iP that a local broker had. A bit out of our price...

Re: Jeanneau SO 379
