    Thanks AK. "That Hunter ended up selling for a terrifying $18,500." Yikes.

    Concerning. With that that vang not reattached might indicate she doesn't carry drills, taps and assortment of bolts. She's smart and cautious, that goes a long way.

    When good designers produce ugly boats.

    and Herreshoff's sailtrack changed that game.
  8. OH, me too. EB, Only takes minimal crush to add the friction required and have never found worn or long term damage to the cable. Sometimes when applicable you can take an extra loop or a slightly tighter radius to accomplish that same needed stick. As you say taking the spring out or throwing one in with less strength works too. I only use titanium bull dog clamps, is that better?
  9. Elegua, On the vented Groco loop - Can't see if it breathes from the loop, burbs/sticks like a hose to the bilge? The replacement rubber is stupid expensive but love the whole groco product line and use their stuff when i can. EB, Got that right re water in hose noise. Actually, that simple bulldog clamp on the throttle cable works great. Have you had an issue? You can gradually add some friction and the rpms stay where where you leave it. Learned a lesson - the jacket needs room for extract/ expansion and can yank itself out of the crimped end. Started installing them in the middle of the run , never another issue.

    Ish, they are well put together and so are the Selden spars that come stock with the Najad. Better custom spars just cost more $. While properly installed rivets should be sufficient for most, Jeanne has a few miles on Nereida and it would be easy to miss some loose rivets during inspection. Lucky the boat & rig isn't all busted up and it came off clean. She should have the tools to drill/ tap 8mm bolts, although a time consuming task on a nice day at the dock. Monday morning I see my client with an unused 35' that monitors Jeanne daily log with plans to go offshore. Most of these issues don't show up till you slam them around a little.
