Re: New Puget Sound Sailor needs jib advice

Nope, actually my boat is in Vancouver. And ours is just plain white. Well, speckled gray. Okay I guess there's the occasional dull orange spot.



Agreed, that's the only way to do it. We...

Re: New Puget Sound Sailor needs jib advice

In light wind, unless the 150 is of lightweight cloth, it's just going to droop. Around here you really need a light-air sail (we have a hank-on drifter, 155% and nylon).

Re: Indian Arm Weekend Trip

We have anchored just off the shoreline on the Belcarra side, at the intersection between Indian Arm and Burrard Inlet, a few times. It was pretty much where we ended up getting to after leaving...

Re: Rigging question - What's this for?

The only odd thing about the double-ended mainsheet theory is that the sketch in the original post also shows a traditional mainsheet set up on a traveler.

Can we have a Google Maps link showing your slip and approach?

Or at least a diagram showing your slip and approach?

Re: Origo/CookMate gimbals

That's my best guess. In the first photo in my last post, the stove is showed in the low/nonmoving position. To get it there I lift the stove by the until the slider "disengages" and then push...

Re: Repair 4 hp two stroke ?

Re: Halyard Stretch

Size and friction. Is it possible to buy just a polyester cover, or do you have to buy some double-braid and pull out the core?

Anyway I just picked sta-set as an example. I'm sure you could use...

Re: Halyard Stretch

Agree.



Disagree. Sta-set has less than 4% elongation at 30% working load. That's less than half an inch of elongation for every foot of line above the belay point.

If you have a small...

Re: Halyard Stretch

Half-wire, low stretch? All-rope, cheap and easy? I thought?

In my case, I've got a not-quite-securely-closing shackle in the pressed eye on my main halyard wire, which unfortunately can't be...

Re: Halyard Stretch

The half-high-tech halyard solution is pretty intriguing. I currently have half-wire and have been wanting to go to all-rope. Do you think I could keep the same masthead sheaves (for the wire) and...

Re: Getting to enjoy the benefits of the South African healthcare system

I googled "degloving". Definitely not for the faint of heart.

To Killarney, best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery, and thanks so much for sharing the tale with us.

Re: Reefing a headsail???

529 ft² sounds big for a 100% jib on a 27-foot boat. Isn't P just for the mainsail?

I would think jib area is LP * Luff / 2. If Luff = forestay length, then for that boat it's

100% * 11.00 ft...
