Re: Astra 3 proffesional

Had a preprinted pad that walked you through the calculations. Think it was from celesaire. It was fun to see the reduction. Maybe good to use something similar to begin. I'm slow to pick up math and...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Think to some extent sailing polars are wishful thinking not taking into account sea state, loading, need for constant trimming ( wife- sit down already), effect of partially rolled head sails etc. ...

Re: Astra 3 proffesional

It's fun. Personally found big bright objects are best to start with and simplest. Use your filters and start with figuring local noon. Then maybe lower limb of the moon when there's a full or nearly...

Re: visit Cuba

Hear due to lack of industry and population density the reefs and coral remain in good health. Cuba underwater approaches the glories of the lesser Antilles of decades past. Personally as long as...

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

Bob I'm a bit confused about this. Clearly cf is stronger and allows greater opportunities in design. But I thought it is more inelastic. Metal having greater ability to absorb a shock load and...

Re: Raise the main sail while still at anchor

Have had opportunity to hang with professional captains. It's great fun to sail off the anchor or mooring. Still when doing this it maybe wise to turn the engine on and let it run for 15m. You'll...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Yup. Have learned the hard way. Now learning the 500mb. But even this and looking at both the European and U.S. models doesn't tell you what's going to happen right where you are. All this stuff...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Smack you're right but that has nothing to do with whether it's a production boat or not. Your basic premise seems to not acknowledge this fact.
It is true that the features and construction methods...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Jerry elegantly makes the point I've been trying to impress on you all along. He started with a good boat. Did a good restoration. Ends up with a good boat. You start out with poor design made poorly...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Problem is you should be talking about specific designs built by specific yards. Even with the V40 there are some were blisters where a real issue and some later boats not.

Re: Generator Etiquette

I'm with Z on this one. Number1 bitch is charter cats where the genset never goes off 24/7. But if a cruiser needs to make water or the batteries are down to 60% what choice is there? Run it in the...

Re: Navik Windvane Steering

Andrew
Is your hydrovane mounted off center? How does it do on various points of sail? How hard is it to mount and unmount? When unmounted where do you store it?
Would really like a vane for...

Re: Water shortage in the Carribean -- anyone seeing this?

Still it's human induced climate change. Global warming is a misnomer. N.E. USA wetter, S.W. USA drier. Fewer hurricanes but more violent. Hello Granada. Superimposed on this is expected cyclical...

Re: Water shortage in the Carribean -- anyone seeing this?

Re: The heart of the matter

Catch 22. If you have a vane you give up some things. Walking about the cockpit requires more attention with a servo pendulum. Sugar scoop is less usable. Using a servo as a emergency rudder would...
