Knothead

Chainplate toggle mismatch

First off, I would highly recommend against drilling out the chainplate. If a 1/4" pin was meant to go in there then I''d leave it at that. Putting a bushing in there could bring about more...

Boom

I''ll second that opinion. Don''t expect to be able to use the old end caps, and you''ll be lucky if you can re-use your gooseneck. Look at some sections at www.dwyermast.com. There''s lots of...

Rudder replacement/repair

a little bit of corrosion doesn''t mean the end for the rudder (I''m not there to judge but if it''s just on the surface, sand it off polish it up and keep on rolling). If it has definitely had it,...

Where to get tiller hardware?

or if it''s that similar to a sunfish, you could just get the hardware for a sunfish (rudder head and gudgeon). You can get all the parts seperately and keep your old blade. If that''s the route...

Sailrite sails

If you already have the proper equipment it''s fairly easy. Without the proper equipment it will be nearly impossible. Sewing is simple, mistakes are easy to fix, but I must stress that sail...

What should I budget for annual maintenance costs?

--gnorbury--
sorry for being off topic but.......

Harken Magic Box (help!)

Most bb blocks have a little bit of space where it looks like an extra bearing could fit.

The most important thing in regards to the well being of your bb blocks is that they be clean. Rinse your...

aluminium extrusions

Getting the blank extrusions could definitely be cheaper. Some of the hardest parts are: cutting the exits + ends so that everything looks good. Everything else is just a lot of pop riveting,...

Corroded lifeline stanchions

Don''t know about getting them apart but when you go to put the new ones on use lanacote(don''t be stingy with it either). Its another anti-corrosive that comes in a spray and a paste. Goop it all...

Vanguard 15 dinghy stuff

First of all, the V15 is nothing like a 470 so lets just not talk about that anymore.

As the last person said, while sailing wing and wing the skipper sits on the leeward side holding out the...

CDI Flexible Furlers

I wouldn''t reccomend a CDI furler over just about anything. From what I''ve seen they''re just not designed well. Schaeffer has one of the best systems on the market right now(in my opinion).

Right of Way at Mark

Tacking inside the two boatlength circle with other boats coming is a big no-no. For one you have no rights while tacking. Second, you can''t force the other boat above close hauled. I''d suggest...

Vanguard Club 420

Colleges don''t use Club 420''s. That is, the 420''s they use don''t have a trap or spinnaker. They make a conversion kit you can buy though. Also, in my experiences most colleges use the boats...

How do I repair Elvstrom Bailer

I''m not sure about where to get the gaskets but just about any silicon rubber would be good for seating it. Don''t use anything too strong (like 5200) as you may want to remove it again.
