Re: Dyneema Rigging

Boat, crimping is actually quite simpel. I think its worth having the all you need. You can fix so fast anything inc. the reeling etc. Put 2 crimps on the wire you make the loop put in the thimble Close the loop by pulling the first crimp close to the loop. Put a grip plier under the crimp so the cr...

Re: Check your outboard internal anodes

do you think it does matter wheter the motor is tilted up or not? Concerning galvanic corrosion it could be transfered by the bolts the ob is connected to the boat. And also the frame of the ob is all time in the water. Ok, mostly there is the colour on the motor frame, but I would not count on this...

Re: Rope diameter rudder

Tanks guis. Go bigger, yes makes sense for the hands. But how you get it towed down through the pipe of the ss rudder cheeks? I did it ones, m boat in the water. So I was able to quize the line from the water up through this pipe. Inside the pie there it is very small to that the rope is not chafed....

Re: New Mac 26 Roller Furling for Main

Yes your right BOAT, this single reefing system I never started to love. In heavy winds you have to fiddle around at the end of the boom. Having the boom in front of your nose... I installed a block at the mast near where the boom is. So this block turns when mast is rotating. Then you can pull the ...

Rope diameter rudder

Hello
Have to order rope/lines for the rudder control with a :macm:

Am I right that is 5/16 inch / 8mm diameter?

Cannot go to measure right now and want to buy.

In my mind seems small. But maybe it is like that. In stock all are the same from rudder to sheets I guess.

Thanks!

Re: is this forum for "trailers & towing" only or can we talk about tow vehicles?

4WD I never had. First I startet with a 30 years old Mercedes w124... worked well. Never problems at ramps. Actually I have a 2016 VW Sharan (basically a small van). Just front wheel drive. Rides PERFECTELLY long distances. No probs on ramps either. When I have snow I put the snow chains on (ok last...

Re: Hot water heater

Well I think to make hot water with 12v does not work. You cannot squeze out 300W of a 60HP ob. So if you really wanted to do so you would have to invest in lithiuferrum additional batteries. All doable $$$$ If you install propane in a boat - as fare as I know - the bottles stay outside. Then you wi...

Re: M forestay

Interisting, BOAT. I dont think you can get a textil forestay ready made for installation. You had to first put it inside the furler. In a second step you had to make professionally the connection to the drum or to the top as far I could imagine. I think at the top where the furler ends you will hav...

Re: Would this work for a Mac

I do not see a big advantage. As long as you have not too much winds/courend from the side you can float on the trailer with a mac. If the winds are very strong it is impossible as the stands at the back of tr trailer are not strong enough... Whats it for?

Re: M forestay

Well, I dont know if the factory forestay is too fragile. When I had a broken one it hold perfectly with 3 strands... :evil: So the load does not seem to be great. BUT: The problem seems not to be the 3mm diameter but the upper connection to the mast. As the forestay flatters araound the strands beg...

Re: Interior ladder

your right all! Safety first. So best would be al ladder that swings up like the :macx: But the ladder of the :macm: is too long to just swing up. Why not take something that is ready to install, just buy it for 30.-- ? There is a foldable telescopic ladder. Just use the half. Then first snap it sho...

Hatch slide, velcro

hello I have to improve the hatch slide, the white gelcoat has already gone... So the velcro mod seems to be popular. Who has it made for some years? Does it works fine? Did it worked to be good to use the the fluffy side? My concern is: If you geht fine sand (like last year in Greace: a Storm from ...
