Re: How many people do I need to fly my a-sail

Rig a tiller tamer (or similar) to keep you on a nice broad reach without risk of gybe, give yourself plenty of time and plenty of room. Do it on a light day when a complete FUBAR won't result in...

Re: New Sails arrived any tips?

Let it stretch out over a few sails before going mad on sheeting, leach line adjustment etc, it will take a bit of breeze to get the sail to settle its designed shape. Batten pocket tension (as...

Re: Mast track

I had a little plastic flap that came across the gap and stopped the slugs coming out, until I managed to snap it off climbing on the boom. Now have a stop instead, works fine, I can still drop the...

Re: drip drip

Tweak the bolts 1/4 to 1/2 a turn to reseal the butyl. Two person job, one with a screwdriver up top and one with a socket below. Did this all around on my 24 and stopped almost all of the leaks in...

Re: Need PNW experience with Wanda Fuca

The fog/mist is generally in the JDF straight itself, it's not often that thick at this time of year or that late in August, it'll look thicker since you're viewing "end on". The worst stuff is...

Re: Cruising chute...keep or sell?

1. Sounds like it to me
2. Easy to use in lighter air, do you have an autohelm to help with hoist/douse?
3. Yes, depending on age/condition, likely worth $500-700 or so I guess.

Re: Describe your tyical daysail if you would.

On the vary rare occasion I take anyone out that isn't there for the sailing, I get them to help out with the snacks if they want to. Anchoring and swimming isn't an option up here, so generally we...

Re: Yanmar 1GM issues

The noise is likely diesel knock, it'll be worse if the timing is also out but mine does something similar if you try and accelerate too quickly, it's not exactly the world's most responsive engine...

Re: Fuel in oil on Yanmar 3GM

Lift pump is a non-service item (even the screw together ones), Yanmar won't sell the diaphragm separately, you have to buy the whole pump. I went through this recently with my 1GM10, I replaced the...

Re: Just hooked up elite gold 5. speed discrepancies

Currents? The Ray is giving you speed from a paddle wheel (SoW) whereas the Lowrance is GPS speed (SoG). 2-3 kts or more difference between the two is quite common round here. Or if no currents,...

Re: Yanmar 2GM20F Oil pan leaks

Yanmars are quite easy to work on, I managed to replace a whole bunch on my 1GM10 with a set of wrenches/sockets, a shop manual and plenty of swearing.

Re: How tight dinghy inflation. Plus lights

"Drum tight" was the general advice given to me if I didn't have a pressure gauge to hand. And in these parts, a dinghy is required to have the same lights if operating under power at night as any...

Re: Yard sale

3/8 and 1/2 are always useful on my boat. 75lb plow might be a bit of overkill.

Re: Sailboat that can be beached???

We used to launch a Mirror dinghy from the beach all the time, sails lowered, centreboard in the slot ready to push down, rudder raised. Push out to about mid-thigh depth (if that), push off and...

I'm an Englishman in BC. The tub just has the Maple Leaf hanging off the back (although I do have a Red Ensign to pop up on the spreaders if so inclined).
