Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

North, been thinking about your trip a little more. Maybe this should be in your original "Oregon" thread, but you seem to be watching this. I don't know how old you are, what kind of shape you are...

Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

Looks like you have it covered. "A better way"? Maybe a turnbuckle from the headstay fitting to the hole at the bottom end of the shank, something that will absolutely stay tight and not allow the...

Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

I see the shackle attached to the chain but can't see if it goes into or under the roller plate? In any event, just thought I would mention the critical issue of having the anchor secured, his call....

Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

I don't mean to be picky, but from the photo I can't see anything else securing the anchor but a Velcro strap? Suggest a really strong, secure restraint to prevent the anchor from breaking loose...

Re: Ah!quick help. Extender plate under furler?

North, just read this, Oh My!! I am not even close to being an expert on anything, especially rigging. However, I would suggest a good, hard, thorough trial run before heading down the coast. Best of...

Re: Really? Oregon, really?

North, haven't heard from you in about 4 weeks? From now to about mid September is about as good as it gets, weather & sea condition wise. Seems like we have had unusually rough conditions off of...

Re: Outboards: sailing with the motor down.

I have no experience with a transom bracket other than to watch many boats with them trying to beat back from Alcatraz with their props out of the water about half the time, & the engines screaming...

Re: Outboards: sailing with the motor down.

The well in the Coronado was basically a slot in the bottom which went back to an opening in the transom, unlike some I have seen as just a hole in the bottom of the boat. Under sail, there appeared...

Re: Outboards: sailing with the motor down.

We sailed a Coronado 25 in & out of San Francisco Bay for 10 years. It had a well that allowed the lower unit to be tipped up completely out of the water. When in close quarters and/or busy traffic...

Re: Tohatsu 25 Air intake issue.

IIRC, since about the early 60ís, the motors I had had fixed high speed jets with only the low speed circuit adjustable. If it will pull max revs under load with the cover off the high speed jet is...

Re: Tohatsu 25 Air intake issue.

Very good!!, I forgot that one. We had a well & it was imperative to keep the lid wide open. Any exhaust gas blowback into the well would make the motor run rough. Check for any dis-colorization in...

Re: Tohatsu 25 Air intake issue.

Maybe:

1. The cover is somehow pinching or crimping a fuel line

2. The cover is binding against the choke linkage

3. The cover is binding against a wire or electrical connection

If the...

Re: Yanmar 4JH2E - how to drain antifreeze?

Suggest when re-filling you let it run a bit with the expansion tank cap off until it won't take any more coolant. Some engines may have an air bleed screw high up on the block, don't know about...

Re: Best Outboard for 24 San Juan

We had a Coronado 25 in & out of San Francisco Bay, which can be really rough. 6HP was OK in dead flat conditions but marginal the rough stuff. Went to 15 HP which "got it done"

Re: Add Sta-bil to gas or not?
