Re: Mast Step Fabrication/machining

Mark, If you are still searching for a solution I have 1 suggestion and an alternate option. I had a similar need and was able to get an off-cut tube of raw material from a local plastics supplier. Within mm if the outer diameter of my carbon mast tube. I took it to a local woodworking retail store ...

Re: Non-Skid

Chris, I went with Seadek for the floor of the cockpit on my B3 three seasons ago. My cockpit had fairly worn non-skid so I was able to just lightly acetone the floor, peal off the paper and apply the foam. It has stayed completely adhered even on the edges. I haven't applied it to the round racks t...

If it doesn't sell there, I'll drive it to Minneapolis, MN the following weekend for you and try to sell it at that event. Worst case it would e...

Re: San Diego winter I-14 sailing 2013

Shu & Joe, Thanks for your comments. It sounds like I will have plenty of fast boats and people to learn from at San Diego NOODs! For any other "mid-fleeters" like me, don't feel like you have to have a B5 or B6 to compete. I'll be there with my B3, round top main, new crew and guarantee I will be h...

Re: My new boat

Shu and Ed, For what it's worth I used the same Harken part and just cut off the extra bits I didn't need for weight and simplicity. It works great, neither my jib sheet nor knee has gotten hung up on it and the strength is fine sans the extra cam arm. Here's a VERY ugly picture of it at NOODs two y...

What do you think the story is behind Brad Devine's winning boat having what looks like a GNAV setup AND a conventional vang setup?

Re: Trailer mounted gear box

Ed, I have a similar goal so I look forward to reading and seeing your results. I have snapped some pictures in my quest and will try and post them for you. My 2 cents: -Wood appears cheap, quick, easy to build but is heavier, hinges + doors can degrade, less secure, longevity is questionable & appe...

Re: Mast suggestions and availability

Ed and Dan, Sorry to go slightly sideways on your thread but to clarify, I've been told and reassured that the CST15 is stiffer than a CST14. In fact two people said CST15 was the stiffest before you go HM. The email I recieved was: "...The 16 is the flexy version on the 14. It's what Fred and I (we...
