    Bent Deck Plate - Why???

    It’s not about mainsheet length, mate, it’s about security line length. Do you set your mainsheet when you’re ashore? I don’t think so, but I’m sure that you set mast security rope, sometimes it’s too short and won’t let mast turn freely when weather shifts, and from the tension that appears...

    Bent Deck Plate - Why???

    Usual reason this plate bends is that mast with security rope on may turn around 1-2 times and due to tension on this rope this thing bends.

    Practic laser dolly

    Theoretically I should have screws in these 2 holes, but they’re missing. Of course I don’t want to take them apart, but I also don’t want them just to break. So, I guess the right solution is to find couple of aluminum rivets?

    Laser Kicker With New Allen Top Block

    I’ve tried 3 of them. The new Allen one, classic harken and the one that comes with Allen vang(kickers). From my experience I can tell u that the classic harken top block was the best one and the smoothest one and it resisted a lot of high loads (I’m sailing ILCA 6 or Radial, call it however you...

    Tiller separation

    Nice question how it happened. I don’t know how. Probably it was in ok position but somebody hit my boat from stern and tiller has gone from its position. As you can see ok the pictures tiller isn’t exactly in the center, it’s a bit left. edit Do I need any lubricant ex. WD-40? to decrease grip?

    Tiller separation

    Hi all. (Unfortunately) Due to this COVID19 all yacht clubs are closed, but sailing isn’t only offshore. And I wanted to separate my rudder from tiller/tiller ext to put everything in blade bag. But I found out my tiller stuck in a rudder (pictures below) How can I separate them?

    Laser Repairing

    This thread is alive again and I need your help. Is there any way to fix the mast step without drilling inspector port? Dinghy is kinda fresh and still costs money, don’t want to “kill”appearance of it and money on selling. I’ve got one picture of my step, I know from where leaks are coming, but...

    Buyer’s guide??

    When you’re buying a boat take a fast look on everything except 1 thing. The mast step. If you’ll buy a boat with a broken/leaking mast step it’s very hard to repair it without drilling an inspector port. Check general condition of gelcoat, see if there’s any repair and ask about it (the history...
