Re: 8 plait dock lines

That is what came on our boat.

It did fine, but for a given diameter, I believe it is not as strong. It's not as compact, so not as much fiber there, per unit area.

Re: Impeller for 3GM30F

That is to say, impellers in the raw water pumps.

Re: Impeller for 3GM30F

I believe there is a difference between impellers for pumps on "European" and on "Japanese" motors.

Re: Keel encased sail drive

I think what you are proposing would be to immobilize the saildrive "lower unit". Which would also tend to immobilize the engine.

My engine(s) and sail drive(s) move around a good bit, together....

Re: Keel encased sail drive

I deal with the advantages and disadvantages of a SD, and am fine with them.

But mine are behind bulkheads that are virtually watertight, and well above the waterline, on an un-ballasted...

Re: Skipjack 14 foot Sailboat - Need Advice on How to Rig

The centerboard was indeed made of aluminum. I went to school with the guy that owned Skipjack #1.

Re: Clutches, jammers, and hi-tech lines

Re: Clutches, jammers, and hi-tech lines

We got some good deals on Warpspeed some years ago, and have used it for several lines: main halyard, jib furling line, topping lift/spare main halyard, and spinnaker halyard (IIRC). I really like...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Looks like the pump couldn't fit any lower than the height of the platform.

Re: Foot switches for an Anchor Windlass

I have foot switches, although we normally use hand pressure because of the location. And I have had a failure with at least one of the two switches. When it happens, it's never a good time.

Re: clevis pin, 18-8 or 316?

Since we are talking about clevis pins, I'd like to ask if a common ss bolt would be suitable used as a clevis pin? Of course I mean using the unthreaded of the bolt, only.

Re: Datamarine S-200DL Deph Sounder replacement

I'm quite confident that the datamarine hole is a good bit bigger than for an ST60. Maybe not an inch, but not far from it.
Had the Datamarine on previous boat, and ST60 now.

Re: Opening Up The Lazarette: Pictures of your new access?

Makes sense.

I know that with a lot of effort you could end up with a more integrated look doing it from scratch, but using a stock hatch would likely be more water tight.

Many more than these...

Re: Trust me! I'm an engineer!

I watched a cable crane on a barge that had been driving pilings on one side of the river near me, cross to the other side.

They got tired of waiting for a tug to push them across, so they set...

Re: Throttle won't hold position!

That looks like what I have.
I figure the idea is that the spring in/on the engine returns the engine to an idle should the throttle cable break. The friction or restriction needs to be close to the...

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

Even though there isn't likely (on that size boat) a separate "shower", most have a shower sprayer used inside the head. Makes it wet in there, but helps keeps it clean.

Re: Vented loop vent confusion/waste system sanity check

I think if the top of the bowl is less than than 6 inches (may be more than that) above the waterline --when heeled, if applicable-- you need vented loops on intake and discharge to the sea.

Re: Idea for safety, 120volt bildge pump

You go ahead and stand in water with 120v wires in it. I'll watch.

Re: Idea for safety, 120volt bildge pump

Well, if it's a 120 v submersible pump, your 120 v wiring will be in the bilge water.

In addition, total weight listed at 5 kg seems pretty light.
Now, if you could inspect one first, that could make a difference.

Re: Foam lining peeling off hull

A heat gun might allow a scraper or wide putty knife to remove it.

I have used a thick paint remover as well, but clean it off and water wash as quickly as possible.
