Re: What size tender can a TS tow

I needed a hard yak to take dag to shore, but would preference a 200buck sup otherwise.

Anyway, this will hang from solar davit frame on stern. If it's up to it!

Re: keel depth indicator

Ive seen it on drop keels where they have a sight glass (tube) on front of keel case with a line and weight in it, line is attached to top of keel, through a block and into glass. Its then been marked at intervals indicating drop level. I suppose the same could be done with a swing keel and elastic ...

Re: Wanting a very small pilothouse T S need help

Id say best target is a Bottrill Explorer eg: https://yachthub.com/list/boats-for-sale/used/trailer-boats/botterill-explorer-16/247576 Cabin provides good protection, pushpit and a couple of uprights on cabin top could support a hardtop.

Re: Wanting a very small pilothouse T S need help

I dont think your wish list boat exists? - I would suggest finding the boat /hull you want and fitting a good bimini or making a foam core hardtop with some zip on clears / shadecloth to it. Off the rack bimini with zips added will get you a good % of what you want for least $: https://trailersailer...

Re: Dual batteries?

Its that whole thing of 'everything's running fine till its not'. More than a few times Ive been looking at 13v until the sun goes down and then its 12.3v - oops! Knowing whats gone out and in - for about $50, is money well spent to protect the $580 investment. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2946615902...

Re: Dual batteries?

+1 for the dc power meter, its something you can reset by disconnecting (at night) and over a few different weather scenarios will see what you actually get in. Other option is most decent regs have a head unit that will monitor all that. Certainly wack the power meter in fridge side to see what tha...

Re: NSW Conditions Update - Myall Lakes, Nelson Bay, Hawkesbury, etc.

We launched the S26 at Nerong .... but not recently! Its a pretty hardy ramp. It does have a drop off at the end of it, a thong of mine is still down in the mud! Depends on your trip plan and if Violet Hill road is in good nic, but I prefer Violet. We did a 2 week trip with Nerong launch, up to top ...

Re: First Trailer Sailer?

How are you pulling tension in, bottle screw? Not really, I mean you can get a loos gauge which measures it but for a beginner it's enough when all remains relatively static, a little loose on leeward in a blow is probably expected. I recall a rig tuning guide on rl site, but lots of other guides on...

Had the same thoughts re low spreaders on compass, but wasn't an issue. I just tied mine to spreaders with a turn, never moved. I like the idea of attachment just above and then just holding out at spreaders. Also give you something to run spectra fishing line through to stop gulls crapping from the...

Re: Noelex Mast Repairs Perth?

Seems to have been splayed rather than broken - can you take it to a shop to be heated / reshaped and welded?

At least its a round section, trick is getting 2 pieces, one to sleeve, one same as existing to fit step. If you go down this route I'd probably wack a couple of inches on for boom clearance.
