Re: Blue Green Algae warning continues Gippsland Lakes

Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning (DELWP) have posted on facebook aerial footage taken from a helicopter of algae in Bass Strait outside Lakes Entrance. I don't know how to extract a video from facebook or post it here, but you can see it here.

Re: Griffin 17

How's the luff length match your mast length? For $250 it would have to be worth considering a new boom. Since it's almost certainly a loose foot, you could go to plain circular aluminium tube to keep the price down, though the gooseneck fitting may be fiddly.

Re: Raymarine st1000

OK, that really does sound more promising than just a PID reading a flux gate compass. One of the key weaknesses of the Raymarine units is that it can only respond after deviations in yaw and cannot even predict them. It does not cope at all well with, for example, a following sea. If the Pelagic ca...

Re: Raymarine st1000

All tillerpilots are intended to control rotation of the boat in a single axis (yaw) with a single output to the boat (tiller position). The ST2000+ doesn't use a gyro, it uses a flux gate compass to give the current magnetic heading. I'd be interested from an engineering point of view how much they...

Re: Wanting a very small pilothouse T S need help

You might like to read Mal's description of the Hardy 18 motor sailer he bought a few years back. Apart from light weight, it's pretty close to what you sound like you think you want, but it turned out to be a disappointment for Mal: When he bought it: https://trailersailerplace.com.au/phpBB3/viewto...

Re: Raymarine st1000

Do you want a tillerpilot? If you're even just thinking about one then you can be pretty confident that the time has come and you will appreciate one! Power consumption is obviously dependent upon how hard it is working, but if it's averaging more than 1 Amp (eg: 1Ah per hour) then it's working pret...

You *might* come in under 2000kg on the trailer, but the three I've been involved with have been 2250kg, 2300kg (both on early Mackay trailers) and 2550kg (heavy Swiftco trailer).

Re: Ultimate 18 keel seal

The top opening of the keel case should be above water level (unless you're awash!!), so there's no "seal" as such but there may be rubber at the top of bottom of the keel case. Are you talking about a rubber surround around the bottom of the keel case to make the bottom of the boat smooth...

In the unlikely event that Karl doesn't have the right mast step, he will probably use your broken step to make a mould to cast replacements.

Peter Yates just had his Investigator done at Paynesville for rather less than $500.
The end fittings drive the cost; the wire and the labour aren't all that expensive.

Mordialloc Sailing Club has a crane used for Flying Fifteens. I don't think Mordialloc Motor Yacht Club has a crane? Neither club have their own ramp, and both ramps on Mordialloc Creek (Pompei's and the public ramp) are behind bridges. I wouldn't like to launch a TS down the beach at MSC. The Flyin...

Re: Blue Green Algae warning continues Gippsland Lakes

I've been out kayaking a couple of times, once between Newlands Arm Ramp - Montague Point - ferry, and a couple of days ago near the ramp at the Silt Jetties, but I looked at the water yesterday and decided to photograph it rather than paddle in it. https://www.loveourlakes.net.au/wp-content/uploads...
