Re: Aries windvane maintenance

Thanks. I've checked out the site but it doesn't mention proper care / lube instructions. I suppose I'll e-mail them.

I have no intention of selling the vane, however, I'll keep you in mind...

Aries windvane maintenance

Hi All,

My Contessa 26 came with an installed Aries windvane; I have not used it in the past 2 years but got around to installing the rudder and vane/paddle yesterday. All the bits and parts...

Re: Lake Ontario - Canadian winter storage locations? (Near Toronto)

Oh, this thread is back from the dead.

Thanks for the tip. I ended up at Uli's Yard for the 2011-2012 winter so your suggestion is a good one for people that find this thread in the future.

Re: Bleached water tank, still stinks!

ooooh! Shock from the pool! Yes, I have that. I also have some other bio-killers for the pool too. Maybe I should do that now before end of season.

Re: Bleached water tank, still stinks!

Steve,
We've fought the same issue for the past 2 summers. Only our tank is fibreglass and most of it unreachable. We brought ours back to a non-potable, but usable state with many flushes, javex...

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

Hey Simon, I had to look that one up. Another great idea.

I'll have to see if that is even usable with my boat. The prop must spin through a cut-out between the keel and rudder so often other...

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

Yup, that's the plan as per post #27.
Will need to couple it with the idea above for an inspection hatch since I can't actually see it without ripping out the cockpit floor.

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

I think we've firmly answered the question about drag so I don't mind if the conversation swings toward recommended options.

I have a Hurth transmission (HBW-50 2R). I don't know anything about...

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

For what it's worth, your story the other day made me laugh out loud while I was sitting in a room by myself. :p I hope you took my comment above in good spirits as I intended.:o

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

Hmmm... Do you have a JJ Taylor or Jeremy Rogers Contessa? Mine is JJ Taylor #312 (1983). It has the cockpit divided into 2 sections, aft of the cockpit drains is solid/fixed. Forward of the...

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

After reading a number of aeroplane related threads, it looks like there is a dependency on the pitch of the prop as well as the drag of the shaft.

For example, with a hypothetical pitch of a...

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

Fair enough. I'm willing to be convinced by science and experimentation.

What about my case of 2-blade prop that can align with my full keel?

I think the folding-prop case is a no-brainer...

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

That is a valid point. Yanmar seems to think that locking the prop causes more damage. Yet, I figure, rotating a bunch of metal at uncontrolled RPM for long periods of time is likely to damage more...

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

I'm not convinced the wheel analogy is apropos since the 'drag' caused by a locked wheel is high because of friction.

Another point I read in a link was that if you have a folding prop (I don't)...

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

arf145, remember, when they are "pushed out of the way", they are actually displacing water horizontally. It's not like they are being moved into a vacuum.

One added wrinkle, is that I have a...

Re: Propeller Drag - Challenging my intuition

If you've ever fished with a spinning lure on the end of your line you'll notice the significant force that it takes to drag that lure through the water. You can feel the reduction in drag...

Re: Good Places to Dock around Toronto

I get it. You've got the drive to learn to sail and don't want to mess around on these weekend leisure cruises. Best way to learn and learn fast is through racing.

Re: cruising from Bayfield Ont to the Bahamas

Hi Sailboatlover,
I did the initial part of that trip, including from Bayfield, last summer. I also am sailing a Contessa 26.

I would be happy to talk Contessa's, the trip and other such things...

Re: OOPS! Diesel Tank Full (FULL) of Water

Last summer, the dockhand who filled my tank left the cap up about a thread or two. I didn't notice until washing the deck and saw water run into the tank! I, too, hoped it would be caught by fuel...

Re: Whats the reason for the huge differences in displacements in similar sized boats

They don't teach you the glass and gravel theory in Boat Design 101? ;-)

Re: Whats the reason for the huge differences in displacements in similar sized boats

Getting back to your original question, lets try that by analogy too.

Take two identical juice glasses, cylindrical in shape. You put a handful of gravel in one, and nothing in the other. One...

Re: Whats the reason for the huge differences in displacements in similar sized boats

I'll take a crack at it from a different angle.

The misunderstanding is that a sunk mass of weight can displace as little water as it can based on its density, but boats do not sink. They float....
