Re: Twist Grip Mechanism

Kris Henderson also makes a twist grip assembly, but without the Ovington clicker. It is simpler and smaller. Just a delrin cylinder machined to take a 3/8" shaft and bored out on the ends to take your choice of flexible universal material hydraulic hose, torque rope, etc. Mounted on top of your ti...

Re: Twist Grip Mechanism

Just use string Mark, even if it's just a case of placing it on the aft beam.
Never met a twist grip I liked!

Re: The new B6

Guys, Many thanks for the offer but I suspect it'd be far cheaper for me to spend a day modelling the two boats comparative structural arrangements (given respective laminate scheds hence panel stiffness) in FE than flying to the states. If I had a day at the mo I would do it! It's on the job list. ...

Re: The new B6

Did you do a structural load and response experiment on the global hull structure to verify that statement?

Re: GBR1524 TLC and control line changes

Ed, Had that problem before when putting a new tfoil on mounted further forward. As you wind it on the total force vector of the foil can act fwd if the pivot, meaning it jumps on to the limit - not great. You can only really move the foil further back into the rudder (massive ballache) or nice the ...

Re: GBR1524 TLC and control line changes

I'm no fountain but maybe ovington website? Most of those gooseneck parts are Australian Riley fittings - either check for stockists or see if Allen has ripped them off. Either that or just work out length etc and get down a stainless place.

Re: GBR1524 TLC and control line changes

Ed, I suspect you'll be fine unless you are asking big things of these padeyes and fair leads, but I notice that you are using spabond and sk78 dyneema. Problems with that might be that the spabond is very viscous so won't wet out the fibres of the string giving a good shear bond, also there is a sl...

Re: Building at 14 at home

You can use whatever design you like and wherever you like - as long as it measures as an i14 you can come and race. Class rules are just off the main page in .pdf You can build to other guys plans as long as you pay a royalty if required. I believe there is some freeware out there. What you got pla...

Worlds Predictions

The banter has been quiet for a while, as such I have started a sweepstake of sorts on the international 14 facebook page.
Guess the top 5 at the Toronto worlds correctly and win a prize (TBD)

Re: GBR1524 TLC and control line changes

Ed, Wax (meguizar generally) is ideal for most of these sorts of parts - polish on and off 5 x coats even on shiny glass for each part. Or use parcel tape if you're feeling stingy on flat stuff, or if you're feeling posh a culinary teflon adhesive sheet. If you were pulling a lot of parts off the sa...

Re: POW 2013 photos

Good stuff - any links or info from the other photographers on the ground last week - I see Ed Shelton credited on some of the other pics on the Y&Y site.
