    Wind instrument cable

    My cable is too short. Would you splice a NEMA 183 B&G Network Wind cable? A new cable is expensive!

    What's your favorite multitool and why?

    My brother got me a John Deere stainless steel multi tool for Christmas and I think it's pretty good. Nice fit in your hand.

    yanmar rebuild?

    The Hoye Tractor site used to have you put in the Yanmar part number and it would give their part. I just looked and now there is a marine engine page then choose your engine. Since it's Chinese products the prices maybe affected by the tariffs going on if you are in the USA.

    I got most of my Yanmar rebuild parts online from Hoye Tractor.

    Westerly Anarchy

    Not sure what Westerly used on their J24s...But on their own design they usually used odd shaped bits of scrap in lieu of washers for keel attachments. Mine look like old school can opener under each nut.

    Westerly Anarchy

    Brochures for almost every model Westerly ever made... The Westerly J24. Built with Loyd's certified material. It would be interesting to compare build quality of Westerly built and a USA built J24 from the same era.

    Great job Roger! Progress is a good feeling. How did you solve the wood vernier problem going around the curved bulkhead? Now you have to cover it up so it doesn't get paint or epoxy on it.

    Westerly Anarchy

    Imagine yourself in a time and place on the internet in the mind of Roger Ball. A place were a heirloom Westerly Centaur has sexy lines, a modern stylish interior and a sail plan featuring a square top main and bow sprit. Bravo Roger keep up the great work. Makes me want to sit back, drink another beer and work on Something Else!
