Re: Thinking of removing my traveler. Thoughts?

Why don't you just try it? it looks like tying your main sheet block to the ring is a 30 second affair. Just check how that ring is mounted first. :)

Re: Wing sail - new and revolutionary, or is it?

I didn't bother to check the history either, until that guy came along claiming that the ice sailers were nazi propaganda, and that the Dutch had invented it all. :laugher

Re: Wing sail - new and revolutionary, or is it?

Angerburg was not in occupied Poland.

And the 'propaganda' part is nonsense as well:
There is not a single word in the film mentioning country, war, politics, or anything alike.

Interesting claims, both of them; any data to back them up?

Only phase, neutral, and ground.

Re: Power Outlet Sizzle - Help Please

So then we agree that there likely was a high resistance, or intermittent contact. At one spot, i.e. in the outlet box, right?

In that case, running everything at at 80% of rated power is not a...

I think overload is out as a cause:
He said he had a functioning circuit breaker.
Overload would have tripped that breaker.
If it does not trip, there is no overload.

Re: Power Outlet Sizzle - Help Please

Sizzle and burn, especially when there was an electric load, could have been an almost open contact. (Corroded away, shaken loose, whatever.)
These arc, and generate heat.

Definitely walk, or have that mess cleared:

Any of the four owners could make claims to the boat at any time, up to a repossession, if they still are holding (part of) the legal title.

Re: Multi-speed winch handle gadget

I think the folded-down handle might block the winch.

I also think this would be a 3-speed-winch on top of a winch.

I have a hard imagining how this 3-speed winch would be so much smaller than...

Re: Boat Cards: Pompous & Anal or A Good Idea?

One plus for "pompous", leaning to the "pathetic" side, IMO.

If I HAD to have a surrogate business card for cruising, I would go for just that: a plain business card.

Re: DIY - discussion on building a DIY hookah diving compressor

One breath is roughly one gallon of air.
You will want about 15 of these per minute. :)
In human breathing cycles, not continuous flow.
