Re: Hoyt Jib Boom

The foot or base is a casting held to the deck by six bolts around a flange. The boom pivots in this foot on ball bearings. The boom only has freedom of movement to rotate on this bearings axis. Any...

Re: Hoyt Jib Boom

I used two layers of 9mm ply above the deck and one layer of 12 mm ply beneath. In area, (67 x 60 cm) they are both as big as I could make them, allowing for bolt placement and access from below. I...

Re: What do you think about a pilothouse sailboat

I am living aboard my CE38 in the Algarve. It is not normally so hot as in Greece. When not sailing, I keep a tarp over the boom and wheelhouse to keep most of the sunshine out. The boat is well...

Re: What do you think about a pilothouse sailboat

The Coronet Elvstrom 38 is a sailing boat with a centre cockpit and wheelhouse. It sails as well as any 1975 design of sailing boat with fin keel and skeg rudder. It sails to windward fine. Just...

One difference between a pilot house and a deck saloon, for conning a boat, is being able to keep watch over 360 without leaving the helm. The visibility aft on a lot of DS is poor, especially when...

Winches

Inside steering may be ok for the motoring bit but if you have to go outside to crank a winch, is it really a pilot house.

Thanks. I think my G4 lamps with side fitting would have difficulty accepting the size of the LED envelope.

I've got one of those on my boat. They still might be made, since other parts from the same manufacturer are. I'll have to go and look up the name. They have a seagull logo (no connection...

Look up the author Tristan Jones in Amazon.com. There's a whole series of them.

Or if he likes something more swashbuckling, the series by Patrick O'Brian makes a good read.

Even at 15 knots, they keep that up in a seaway for a long time. A small fast boat at 15 knots in the same seaway is an uncomfortable place and they can't chase for long. So maybe it was flat calm,...
