Re: 7 star burgee / pennant?

It's probably someone's House Flag.

House flags were registered to individuals (not Clubs or Navys) and were flown on their yachts (both steam and sail) as recognition signals back when everyone...

Re: Hartley 12.2 - good boat for sailing school?

All I know of these boats is they are not in any way related to Richard Hartley's venerable old Hartley TS12 from years ago.

FWIW, if you're looking for an instructional class, most clubs over...

Re: Raw water cooling - walk away?

FWIW, engine manufacturers have been marinising general purpose (usually tractor/light truck) engines for several decades now.

It isn't quite as simple as you make out since they still need to...

Re: Something you don't see every day

'Avian' (96)
'Dingo' (200)
'Zea' (308)
'Snowgoose' (309)
'Zephyr' (318)
'Ettrick'...

You mean the tow boat? That's the Ted Kaufmann-designed Admiral's Cup contender "Mercedes III" (http://www.classic-yacht.asn.au/boat-register/mercedes-iii/)

Something you don't see every day

It was the first race of the Classic Yacht Association of Australia (CYAA) Winter Series yesterday and it turned out to be a real drifter too..

With so little wind, our small fleet of engine-less...

Re: Pole end jamming

That's SOP on my boat currently... and it's nice to know I'm not the only one. :)

It seems the design of spin pole ends hasn't really changed in decades. If the issue is so widespread, you'd...

Re: Raw water question

Well...since you asked:

Following one cruise many moons ago, one of my crew noticed water dripping from the back of the raw-water pump: the bearings were shot. This meant the pump had to come...

Thanks, HS. Saves me the trouble of making up something that already exists off-the-shelf. :)

Yep, that's right. Sunday to be precise. :D

Re: Pole end jamming

The shaft is currently held in by an end pin - a 'stopper' if you like. I can tell you from experience (on the Hartley) that if there's no end pin and the shackle comes off, the spring sends the...

Re: Raw water question

I must admit I'm the opposite of the OP.. no-one I know uses a below-waterline strainer; they're all above-waterline - and it makes sense it would be a bit more "rugged".

Two major disadvantages I...

Re: Pole end jamming

A reasonable suggestion.. The pin at one end is actually a bit bent (it kinda 'locks' home) possibly because of uneven strain, but it really does seem to be salt in the internals that jams them up.

Re: Pole end jamming

Removing the pin isn't that easy. Can't see it in any pics I took, but there's a piece of small-diameter stainless across the end of the fitting (the only thing that stops the pin flying right out)...

Re: Raw water question

Truth is, a raw-water system should prime in seconds... although, assuming the pump bearings still hold some grease, an impeller in good nick should manage being run dry for *minutes* without damage....

Re: Raw water question

Onto the impeller itself and between the blades. Don't need to be fussy about it and don't use too much (I could tell you a story about how I found that out, but it'd be getting off-topic).

Re: Raw water question

FWIW, my strainer is above the waterline, engine-mounted pump impeller below.

Re: Raw water question

Yep.

Worst case, one squirt of dish detergent is all it takes to get the system primed. It's not difficult at all... and a leaky strainer seal is usually the culprit. :)
