  1. See if a bluejay's sails will fit. About the same size and should be some in GA.

    Worth repairing C-lark 14?

    If you like the boat fix it, if it's just a boat scrap it. Lot's of cheap small boats out there, but most are pretty torn up.

    First boat at age 50

    Go down to Shilshole, they used at least have a group that raced sj24's. Might pick up some pointers. Make sure the brace under the mast is good, that's about the only weak spot.

    What's with the hate? He's having fun and experimenting, when he break's something your not paying for it. Is it a good idea no not really, but again HE is having fun.

    Dropping my Cal 20 keel

    Use the hoist at the club, lift the boat a few inches and stick some 2x6's between the pads and the boat.

    Is there ANY Antifoul that works? ( Bottom paint?)

    Don't know if you can get it in the UK, but Seahawk biocop plus, works well for me. Can't get it in the US anymore unfortunately, luckily I stocked up before the ban.
  7. You can sue anybody, would you ever win, no! Unless it fell on your boat from the ship or you saw it fall off, then hit it. How would you know which ship it fell off of? The company lease's the conx, plus their stolen all the time. So you will have to prove the ship and negligence.
  8. Get a piece of tape, put inch marks on it. Tape the tape to the hydraulic unit vertical. Run a wire rod down from the backstay make it loop around the body. This will show you how many inches of travel you have. At the dock put on pressure until you get the mast bend your looking for. Now you'll know your max adjustment. And it's easily repeated. Your psi gauge will change all the time based on load, the tape is constant.

    I say go for it, it's only money and time. Like was said once, money for nothing and chicks for free.

    Olson 30 vs. Soverel 33

    The O30 is a pain box, in comparison to the S33. The 30 is a bit faster in less than 6kts of wind.

    Yamaha 9.9 Timing Question

    Well if it's like any other engine, the should be a mark for tdc on the flywheel. It should point straight at a mark on the cam. I see you have two marks on the cam but can't read them. If nothing more pull the #1 spark plug and stick rubber hose in the hole, turn the crank till you find tdc. Should give you a 50/50 chance on getting it right the first time.
