Seems like there’s a lot of stress on that. Don’t feel like screwing into deck is strong enough even though that’s how it was from factory. Boat is old and not sure of shape of core.
Question: since I don’t want to cut inspection port to back, can I use stainless toggle bolts? Bed down with...
My Google engineering degree comes up with this. At 40” span with supports, sched 40 1.5” is rated to hold 143# per table 3
Not sure I’d go the 1.5” pvc route as main supports. Lumber came way down...
As I’ve never raced yet, you bet I want to improve my results :)
Personal test to see if I can be competitive against people who have been sailing their entire lives if I focus on tactics and prep. Not trying to win but not trying to be last. Have good understanding of wind from surfing and...
Thank you! I have all the stuff to add outhaul and Cunningham. Will adjust everything else as well. Just wanted to get a feel for her. What’s the vibration when going fast? Felt like daggerboard in slot maybe.
On the hunt for frp boards. Don’t want to pay more than I did for the boat for blades.
It’s been either way too windy or raining since I got my boat. Finally got out yesterday before wind started cranking. Spent 2 hours sailing back and forth across bay and using buoys as marks. Sore and tired now. Sloppy tacks but I’ll get better as I get used to passing extension and main. Can’t...
Races cancelled, grrrrrr. Didn’t even start blowing hard until way later.
I like the idea of double halyard as I’m on the smaller side. Would be nice to be able to depower.
Our conditions are regularly over 15. They took optis out at bellport to 25+
My understanding is you untie top halyard so you can lower top spar to depower rig. If you’re using halyard for vang would you have to untie whole thing or just use bottom halyard for vang?
