Re: The WTF challenge!

Med,

My symphaties!

You should use a knocking machine :) Not sure what the name is in english, but a machine that knocks at the same time as it turns the screw.
Such are sometimes used when...

Re: 2 vs 3 blade prop

Frog, you are just promoting PerfectPitch without any background knowledge of prop design.
How nice of them to decide for you! And to have some shaft extensions ...

And on top of this you...

Re: Jeanneau, the worst boat for the money?

Union, this you have misunderstood fundamentally.

Firstly, you claim that the fact that some few Vegas has been doin this or that is some kind of sign of quality. It is not, it just proves that...

Re: Jeanneau, the worst boat for the money?

Minne, I will not argue against you.

I do not agree with generalizations over a wide product range. Jen, as well as many other volume boat builders (bav, Bene, ...), have produced many different...

Re: Jeanneau, the worst boat for the money?

The Vega is a true coastal cruiser. Designed by Per Brohäll for harbour hopping, during the 60-ies. Not intended for longer trips, and of course not Drakes or any such. Per Brohäll designed a series...

Re: Prop and Shaft Barnacles

Well, we have been here before.

Zinc doesn't repel barnacles, on the contrary one could say. The best metal for repelling is copper (Cu), which usually is found in marine propellors.

Re: Rigging question….

Don't you have access to Monel rivets? If so, those are best, strong and no need for the exclusive Tuff-Gel.

Usually I go for bolts, with a locknut (+ washer) on the inside. That was what I use...

Re: We have fallen for the Cheoy Lee 40 Offshore

Hull looks nice. Is it somewhat narrow?

Issues to consider:

- main sheet traveler on the rooftop, ok...

Re: docking with no motor and 20 knots

With all due respect ... most of you are wrong here :)

Any method bringing the boat into the slip, which works without causing damages on things and people is good.

If you sail, tow, warp,...

Re: The right prop for my boat

Noted that, a nice prop on a nice boat :)

FoF are of course very good - came out first in the YM (I think it was) test couple of years ago. Gori is also good; strange that the danes are so good...

Re: We have fallen for the Cheoy Lee 40 Offshore

Alaska, Cats or Tris are not bad for living or for sailing, but it use to be difficult to combine, ie to get good both living and sailing.

When I see the other prospects you suggest, I...

Re: The right prop for my boat

Phil,

as stated by Tommays 6 knots is a lot for a 26 ft boat. As you know, each boat has a theoretical max speed based on the waterline length (vmax is about proportional to sqrt (lwl) ). Going...

Re: Overview of $220 100w Monocrystalline bendable Solar Panel on Bimini (Video)

100 W @ 14.3 V gives about 7 Amps (not Ah, that is the integrated Amps over some given time). Peak power! Cannot do any better.
OP says, and it shows, it was a cloudy day, 2.3 A is not bad.

Re: Boat almost sunk, not mine

1) Why 1985?
2) Quirky?
3) How do you know that this boat was not originally fitted with a seacock?

Clearly some assumptions here.

Do not see the relevance of these matters now. We all...

Re: Boat almost sunk, not mine

Sorry about the loss ...

Don't really see why engine & woodwork should be totalled. Uphostery is likely to be, fridge probably, wiring better to swap.

Where I live, most boats are put on land...

Re: Bent Mast Advice

Waterrat is correct, a new mast it is. It doesn't have to be brand new, just another undamaged mast in similar size. Look around, there use to be a lot of unused masts ... shouldn't be too expensive....

A boatowner have to fix a lot of things by himself, or have access to extensive funds :cool:

Re: Looking for 36-40', plus sized cockpit

I once had a 34 ft boat with a bridgedeck, excellent for napping, in particular during sailing.

On the subject of a large cockpit - many racers has that. A retired one, maybe?

Re: An Unusual Rig

A rig not uncommon on larger sailboats earlier on. Not sure about the winch issue, this kind of sail arrangement does mean more sail higher up, which gives more possibilities.
