Re: Wheel to tiller conversion - new throttle

Ahh, NOW I know what box you're talking about! And thanks for reading my blog - always catches me off-guard when I hear someone actually reads it! I know no manufacturers potted the decks back then...

Re: Wheel to tiller conversion - new throttle

Hooo-eeee! I had no idea these things were going to be that expensive. My Edson throttle controls weren't that much, and I thought everything Edson made was priced like diamonds. Definitely going...

Re: Wheel to tiller conversion - new throttle

I don't have a fiberglass box anywhere - not sure how to answer that one...:confused:

Wheel to tiller conversion - new throttle

I'm planning a conversion from wheel back to tiller on my 1977 CS27. The wheel and pedestal just take up too much space, and the conversion is relatively simple on my boat. The part I'm not yet...

Re: Tacking Asymmetric Spin

One of my light air problems is completely toasted sails... I believe they are original 1977, and generate all the lift of tissue paper. Budget constrains me to a new main this winter, and a new...

Re: Tacking Asymmetric Spin

I was under the impression that since my spin halyard is forward of the forestay I have no choice but to do an outside tack/jybe. If I go inside I think I'm creating a nasty chafe point...

Tacking Asymmetric Spin

Has anyone successfully come up with a strategy for tacking (NOT jibing) an asymmetric spinnaker forward of fore stay? I don't have a symmetric spinnaker, and this was the only sail in my inventory...

Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

Wow - I love the custom mini-sprit! With a trip to a welder and some woodworking I coudl definitely do something like that in the future. For now I think I need to keep it a bit simpler, but I...

Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

Yes, the yard crew that stepped my mast got a little creative on me. My bad for not being a more active supervisor in the process. That's #1 on my list toward resolving this issue.

Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

Faster, that's exactly what I wanted to do in the first place, but I couldn't quite find the right hardware - was hoping someone else knew of something that would work. I've seen the clamshell...

Re: Epoxy clean up

You don't want the heat on plexi - it will distort/bend. Only option there would be a very slow and careful scraping with a razor blade, and then perhaps one of those headlight polishing kits to...

Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

Sounds like a plan. I think I'm going to try putting a pin through the holes in the furler tangs so I can have an even distribution of load on both sides, and then run a pennant off of that with a...

Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

I definitely mean a tack strap to adjust the height of the tack - not really a downhaul. Sorry for the confusion. I was concerned that I might mess with the mast rake if I moved the furler back to...

Gennaker downhaul on CS27

I'm looking for creative ideas to attach the downhaul of a gennaker in front of my furler (see image below). I plan to use a ATN tacker above the pulpit and need a downhaul. My goal is to attach a...

Proper bolt type for mast step?

I have a 1977 CS27 with a deck-stepped mast. Somehow over the winter, the bolt which attaches the aluminum mast base casting to the aluminum mast step has vanished, as such, I need to order a new...

Compact water filtration recommendation?

I'm installing a new fresh-water system on my CS27, and would really like to put a in-line filter after the pump to improve the drinking water taste from the galley and head sinks. Primary use of...

Re: Elbow fittings below the waterline

I have a 90 degree fitting at the seacock end. I'm looking for a 90 or 45 degree hose barb to hose barb fitting for the cockpit drain side. Some of the nicer bronze cockpit drains have 45 degree...

Re: Elbow fittings below the waterline

I have a 90-degree tailpiece on the seacock end, so that part is ok. I'd only need one fitting per line at the cockpit drain end right under the drain itself.

The part I'm not sure about is what...

Elbow fittings below the waterline

I went to great pains to ensure that my boat's cockpit drains could absorb a direct nuclear strike and not result in sinking the boat... I used 1/2" G10 backing plates bedded nicely, through-bolted...

Re: Where to get Butyl tape?

Yet another vote for Mainesail's butyl. I used it (extensively) in refitting my CS27, and it was excellent to work with. You will NEVER go back to caulking tubes again. Buy MORE than you need so...

Certainly is a sailboat, and it certainly has wire rope standing rigging. Maybe one of the shrouds is close to a 1/4 wave multiple? The catch is, I have a deck-stepped mast and I really, really,...
