want to update my old vang to a 6:1 purchase.I need a swivel to do this.As I recall there was an expensive Super Vang Swivel but also know there is a more economical RWO version.Does anyone know where I can purchase the RWO version?
last couple of days out sailing have heard a loud pinging type noise.Sailing in big waves in cold water.Only occurred a couple of times in two days.Used two different top sections,so it is not that.
Almost sounded like the time I broke my vang tang.Checked every thing over and everything appears...
Any suggestions on what to do to tidy up mast step wear.I already use the mast wear strips on my mast,and I regularly wax the mast step and mast base.Also spray with Mclube.
Just looking for ideas on how to make it look a little nicer.
Quite often when going upwind in 10-14 knts of wind my lower leeward telltale will stall while my upper ones are still streaming nice.
What adjustment can I make so my upper and lower telltales are breaking at the same time?
I am not a big supporter of the new Mylar Radial cut sail and carbon mast.as someone who races there boat 2-3times a year I cannot justify spending extra dollars to upgrade in order to race.
Better solution for myself is just reduce the price of the dacron sail.
