Re: Fabrication: Ranger 29 Rudder Post Flange

HDPE doesn't have the same non compression value as the phenolic. Phenolic is very hard and does not compress. Also HDPE is too soft. I know it is expensive but it was the right material to use in...

Re: Beneteau hull liner replacement.

Need to clarify this. That was just for the Layup of the new material. Took another 10 hours or so to strip the old stuff and remove the foam residue from the hull.

Re: Future Sailor?

Here is my advice. Get on boats! as early and often as you can sail do it. Find a boat to crew on for recreational races, offer to help with deliveries, offer to help people sand the bottom of their...

Re: Beneteau hull liner replacement.

You do have some working time, maybe about 10 minutes before it starts to become compromised. repositioning is doable. The glue sprays out like a spider web and stays on, whatever it hits it sticks...

Re: Beneteau hull liner replacement.

Not off the top of my head. I have done 3 of the jobs though. best way to do it is measure your areas and then add 10%.

Re: Beneteau hull liner replacement.

It is a lot like carpet but very lightweight and breathable. No moisture issues. Breathes much better than Vinyl.

The 80's Bene's used a foam backed vinyl for the...

Re: Trailer sailer

Are you thinking about a 26M or the older swing Keel model? Very different boats and I personally would not want to be midlake in an M (motor sailer). Water Ballasted and top-heavy. Ok for coastal...

Re: Sewing machine corner

The thicker the material the better it hold shape and feeds more evenly. Double sided or "basting tape" is a good practice for novice or learning sewers. I still use double sided tape when making...

Re: Sewing machine corner

Re: Sewing machine corner

Should work fine. The Machine you describe is the LS-1 (I think) and that motor pulls 1.7 amps at 6600RPM. Even at start up I don't think it would be enough to trip the breaker on the Honda by a good...

Re: Sewing machine corner

That is a tough order! There are a great deal of machines that you can get that will do what you want (used) but the portability is where you are going to suffer a bit. For that price you are likely...

Re: Cheap sewing machine that takes a binding feeder?

The 332 is a decent machine. Not quite the full size industrial with the longer arm but still a good machine. The design is older from the 40'2 or 50's but should work really well. If you make sure...
