    SOS Dan Buoy - Auto inflates while hanging on pushpit

    Guess it’s just part of regular maintenance.
  2. Just checking the community. Dan Buoy hanging on the pushpit and auto inflated without being submerged. It has been on the stern the whole season. Yes, it has rained this summer, but this just shouldn't happen. If I hadn't noticed it bulging in the bracket, I could have had an emergency situation and found it useless. Has anyone else had theirs auto inflate" (Never had a problem with my MOM 8)

    Thanks for posting. Wish I could read Chinese and make better use of the live TV.

    Jib up with assym on sportboat?

    Ok, be gentle - or not. We never keep our jib up with the kite, but see plenty of videos of boats that do. (seemed to be pretty effective for J-125 overtaking Timesaver on front page) So where is it most effective? Run? Reach? or Tight Reach

    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.
  10. I really appreciate the help all of you provided. That's plenty to digest.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
