    Beneteau 10R

    The 10R does not reward a lazy lead bottom crew. Shifting crew weight should be a religion and as Madohe said, stack everything you can at the mast, crew bags first and sails next. Use the inhauler as a fine tune element for your 130 or 140 and not with a 150 or 155 because it will badly distort the sail.
  2. I really appreciate the help all of you provided. That's plenty to digest.
  3. The unit I'm trying to power draws 1,5 to 2.0 amps with max power usage of 24watts @10VDC. Wish I knew what that meant in terms of what kind of battery capability I need -- I'm sure there are hundreds of you guys who can splain. Any help would be appreciated.
  4. Would love to find a power block where I could potentially plug in batteries from standard power tools for running a GPS with 7" screen. Would normally need to run only 4 or 5 hours, but could be as much as 16 hours. The GPS would be the only thing requiring power because instruments are solar, my nav lights are LED using AA's. Since weight is a big deal, I don't want to carry a full size marine battery. I plan to remove the battery after every race to recharge.

    Infuckers on the Fareast 28r

    Normally I would agree with Gbike on the amount of purchase associated with running only one line of the inhauler thru the ring, but it seems to me that you do get the benefit of more purchase by running both lines thru the ring. Not having an engineering degree, I’m certainly open to input from more knowledgeable folk.

    Infuckers on the Fareast 28r

    On my 28r, we run both lines thru the ring which I think improves the purchase. Nevertheless, that’s the way the class set up was rigged. It will undoubtedly be more effective when we recut the sail so the clew is higher. We have had no problem running the three lines thru the ring

    Bobstay for sportboat

    I have access to the inside of my bow section, but have no idea of thickness before I begin to drill.

    Sounds like a nice approach. Yes, would like to know the size. Thanks

    Bobstay for sportboat

    I want to put a code zero on my sportboat and need recommendations for the best way to install the thru hull portion of a bobstay. Any thoughts?
  13. Alex W. you are wrong about 10r headroom. I'm a former owner and 5'11" with no problem on headroom. I have also owned a Quest 30 which also meets the headroom requirement. Dopo- you can PM me if you would like to discuss those boats.

    FE28R Tuning Guide anyone?

    Inhauler installed. First sail last night seemed effective for shaping jib. Seemed to point higher, but no competitive boats nearby. All Harken parts.

    FE28R Tuning Guide anyone?

    I'm expecting to install inhaulers on Typhoon Harry this week. Will post when completed
