    Mainsheet jam cleat question.

    That's the one, much appreciated.
  3. I'm trying to find a source for a mainsheet jammer. It has a normal jam cleat that you pull up to uncleat by removing the sheet from the jaws, but it also has a function wherby if you pull down on the sheet, the jaws also open with the sheet still in them. Anyone know the name or supplier for this?

    Pulsing in rudder/tiller

    Is it a 'pulse'? What time period? or is it a 'hum'? Latter can be solved easily. Grind a chamfer on one side of the trailing edge of the rudder.
  5. Replaced ours earlier this year with the one you are talking about. Worked fine. The NMEA also loops between the NX2, chart plotter and the VHF, I just added it in and it is happily communicating.

    PFD Upgrade Time

    A lady on the boat asked the pro we had on board a week or so ago (circumstantial, she could have asked the question of anyone) about his opinion on the difference between foam and inflatable. His answer was, and I agree with it, that with an inflatable the chances of surviving an unconscious forced ejection from the boat (i.e. head shot during a gybe) are better than with current foam jackets. Those of us long enough in the tooth will remember when foam jackets used to have an enormous collar at the back - this was to keep you from going face down in the water. None of the modern ones have this. Inflatables by design will keep you face up provided they inflate.

    Sun Fast 3600

    Boat is designed for 2 handed offshore work. Load it up with 9 crew and bags and accessories and it is slow and will not rate. Keep it light and it will.

    Death at Cowes week.

    My deepest sympathy and condolences to all, heard about this yesterday during sailing in Calves week. Perfect sailing weather there, hard to believe this happened so close.
