I suspect the tube was cut by PO to feed snake in both directions when the old cable broke. Many Bristol k/cb have had this infamous tube modified or relocated. I cannot tell you if, on the 32, the...

Part of what I was thinking is that the hawse holes are really for docking lines, not mooring. The mooring line needs to feed as the anchors do - much further forward and higher. With a single...

It does sound like fun and the board is going to get some wear and tear. No way to avoid it. Sounds like you should wear a cup to protect the jewels during rapid deceleration. Enjoy it. I fish skinny...

I use the tricolor off and the deck lights near. Almost no one buzzing around a harbor in the dark in a PDV has a clue so I shine a light on the sails. I also found cruise ships indifferent to...

I second the recommend for McLube - great stuff. Stays in place and keeps working. Sounds like you haven't serviced in the past so it may be a simple fix.
