    Lewmar 30 st single speed. REPAIR

    Aluminum. Upper part of drum that rides on roller bearings, check. Have access to machine shop. Winches are rare old Lewmar single speed 30ST. I have four from my IOR winch farm. I am probably going to sell them and want an answer if someone get that deep upon examination. They don’t rattle or wobble. Drum wall seems to be about 3/16 to 1/4 thick.

    Can I mill out the corrosion and wear inside the drum ( bearing surface) and bush it out?

    dyneema loop with low friction ring construction

    I thought that looked a little familiar. The Saga is at our docks. Those cute little mini 6's.

    iRegatta - anyone use it, recommendations?

    nice sales pitch-This car might be too much for you, son. I almost fell for it but I don't even have a knot meter. I'm fine if my wife doesn't call during the start.

  9. Easter Sunday Our club has an egg hunt and Pot Luck followed by a balloon chase on the water. There should be some good photos coming. We shanghaied four V-15s and put a bunch of kids on each one. The easter Bunny (Mrs. Sockeye) spewed balloons from the Committee boat while we hopper skippers tried to intercept as many pastel orbs as possible. My team won with forty balloons because we popped 'em to keep 'em in the boat. Next post should be really about the first of the keel boat series. in the six.
  10. The JDPMR is not a typical 6mR race. It is a point to point race run by the PMYC from Pt Monroe to eagle harbor red nun to the west point buoy to Jefferson Head and finish at Pt Monroe. It was fore cast for under 5 knots and rain the day before so i stoked up on beer, sammies and rum to keep us more happy. However, the day dawed sunny and blowing 10 knots by 9am. At the start line We had only five minutes to run the line, pick a start point and we were about 20 seconds late at that. We did have clear air and good speed. The only prob....we deciced we wanted the right side after just a bit and most every one else was right of us and wanted the left. We finally got up enough on the j105 Dulcibad nea and could go over her and under the C&c 43. we made out well over by the beach with better wind and probably some + current. There were one or two odd moments: Great white came up from under us out pointing us by 15 to 20 degrees. I didn't see how she got going so high just below us but she soon fell down to our course. abit later we werer coming up on another 35'er and she was just pinching like a bad aunt. we didn't and couldn't live that high so we had to take a hitch to the right to get a clear lane. it was a bit wierd to run into such various tactics in the middle of the sound in teady wind. we held our time quite well to the windwrd mark at eagle harbor and on th3e dead down leg to west point but the better wind and a reaching leg found us settling back in the leaders. The 11 meter smoked by us on that leg. I blew the douse by forgetting i had to get the pole down for a windward takedown. I still not sure why that was called for because we were not going to set it again. We llost about a minute on that fiasco and we were in 5th place by 70 seconds. It doesn't sound too great but compared to the masthead and Assy kites ahead of us we felt entitled to drink Joyce's Rum. comgratulations to the winners. Steve Trunkey always makes a great showing in the old Egress and we love having the West sounders com out for our annual opener. Sockeye US119
