Did a leak test today and realized I have some leaks on a couple of the rivets on the coaming and the autobailer. I know I have to replace my autobailer, but as far as the coaming goes, is there a recommended way to sealing it that doesn't involve taking the coaming off? Should I even worry...
So I rigged the boat to try it out and I’m a wee bit concerned about the grip it has when the sheet goes back out. I’m guessing it’s different when the wind does it vs me just pushing on the spar, just hoping it doesn’t catch and cause a capsize.
I’m sure it’s functionality will all become...
I don't really plan on using the auto mode, so as long as I don't use that, I shouldn't have to worry about it being tough on the sheet, right?
Debating whether I should install it or try to exchange it for the one I ordered. I'm guessing I should probably just install it and call it a day.
That's what I need?
I’ll mostly hold the sheet, it would just be nice to have the option in case I need a free hand for a few moments. It’s a risk, but if I need to grab something (like a bottle of water) I don’t want to have to fumble with it while holding the sheet.
Looking to replace this guy so I don’t have to hold the sheet the whole time I’m sailing. Thinking about getting this from intensity sails. Is that a good replacement? Hoping to be able to use the existing holes that the current cam cleat uses.
