Re: Compression post misalignment

Rich H-

The bottom tabbing definitely hasn't broken. I do feel that the softness has progressed beyond any wood wedge beneath the post, and the post will need repair or replacement within a year...

Re: Compression post misalignment

Valley-

I appreciate your help, but I'm afraid there's a miscommunication.

1. There is no dish depression at the top or on the deck.
2. The bulkhead/compression post isn't changing when I...

Re: Compression post misalignment

Rich H.-

I don't have the dish depression on deck. I've seen a P30 with that problem, so I'm familiar with it.

Later this morning, I found this blog:...

Re: Compression post misalignment

No problem, Barry.

Unfortunately, our boats have a different system.
There is no crossbeam, only the port/stbd bulkheads and an overhead cabin liner.
The compression post fits into sort of a...

Re: Compression post misalignment

Bulkhead tabbing doesn't *appear* to be broken.
Boat sails evenly on each tack. The entire boat isn't warped.

Jeff:

I agree that Pearson wasn't very precise, especially on the early boats.

Re: Compression post misalignment

I have properly tensioned the rigging with a Loos gauge.
While this did not bring the post back into alignment, it did stop it from moving further.

Yeah, I could plane the door and more the...

Compression post misalignment

Short story:

Over 42 years and being sailed in heavy weather with the standing rigging improperly tensioned, the top of my compression post has shifted one half inch to starboard. As a result, the...

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Too many obligations to go sailing this weekend, but I did manage to change the oil and de-winterize the engine. It fired right up, with no hesitation.

I can go sailing now, but I have 2-3 minor...

Re: Florida is at it again

At one point, you were poised to enter this lifestyle. I wonder what your tune would be, if you actually had, and were attempting to cruise down in this area. Since you're not cruising, it all seems...

Re: Florida is at it again

I think this issue will fester and eventually erupt at a federal court level where it will be solved, once and for all.

I won't even hazard a guess at what the outcome might be.

Re: Florida is at it again

CnC,

The 200' setback is being specifically chosen, precisely because it's impossible to comply with that setback in many places. Since you can't comply, no anchoring is allowed.

It has nothing...

Re: Florida is at it again

Dave,

I'm not very clever. Does the SSCA have a "pro-forma" letter that I can use, to write my Federal rep? I understand the problem, but I'm not sure I could articulate it in an effective manner.

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Sigh, 13 pages to this thread and I've only been out once, in January before the hard freeze. That wasn't even on my own boat.

I'll try to set a goal of getting out this weekend, if the wind isn't...

Re: Kent Narrows Draw Bridge closed for repairs

Also pay attention to the tides. At a draft of 5', I can't make it through at low tide.

Re: Is NSA a bad thing?

I've been boating/sailing in Florida and Maryland most of my life.
I've never been pulled over or inspected. Not once. Ever.

Maryland/Virginia have multiple law enforcement agencies patrolling...

Re: Can You Tell Us About the Chesapeake and Annapolis?

Yes, living IN Annapolis will be expensive. There are many smaller, nearby communities that are just as beautiful, that provide water access, that are less expensive.

I hate to break this to you,...

Re: What concerns do you have when a boat has been out of the water for a long time?

I think the hull deformation worry is overrated, as long as it was blocked properly. If it was stored indoors, it didn't have tons of snow piled onto it, overloading the jack stands.

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I recall going out after some named storm had passed through, and saw a propane tank the size of a Japanese midget submarine floating by.

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Yeah, it was pretty honky out there today. I restricted myself to maintenance.
Test-fit my new jacklines, and rebuilt the winches. It'd probably been a long, long time since it had been done.

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

It seems the safety zone is from the Bay Bridge, and northward.
Am I reading this correctly, that the time period for this zone is until April 15th????

Edit:

Hmmm...maybe your northward folks...

Re: spinnaker sheet in the prop

My buddy sucked his dinghy painter into the prop and nearly wrenched the strut out of the hull. He did have a vibration as an indicator.

I hope your damage is nil.
