Re: Any one heading for the Seattle Boat Show?

@Russ: Did you ask the seller in Europa if he has an idea? Firs I had the 11kg. Later I got the 8kg. If I new that it is SO MUCH EASIER to handle an 8kg I bought both the first day. And like sayd both go in the anchor locker without taking them apart. And on top the anchor line is there also. For me...

Re: Any one heading for the Seattle Boat Show?

interesting. Well, concerning achors, the Rocna might be good. But the Jambo is far way better. Wins all tests. Good holding power is for years standard. But the grabbing quality makes the deal. How easily the anchor holds. Comfort if it works the first time. Life saving if it digs in in strongs win...

Re: reinforcerd rudder posts

Roger asked me what year my :macm: is. Becouse stock delivery had the heavy ones and the thin ones. So I went to the boat to check. I was happy I had the 3mm ones. So I can improve. I guess I will order new ones when I will order the mainsail also. By the way I have the impression the rudders are tw...

Re: Mast Raising Alterations 26M

I think Jimmy is right. The more the mast goes down the more the rising lines gets longer.

Just an idea: Maybe you could put the mast raising lines in a ring and give a line to this ring. The more the mast goes down you pull the ring. And this ring takes the lines together and makes them shorter.

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!
