    J105 Sprit Pole Bearing/Seal

    I'm trying to get more info on how/where the seals/bearings for the Sprit pole all go together. Currently when we extend the pole, a piece of what looks like a bearing (teflon/nylon ring) extends with the pole. Assuming it is supposed to be seated in the opening I don't see what is supposed to hold it in. In heavy air we also get a fair amount of water ingressing around the pole. The plate where the pole enters the forepeak is cracked in several places and I don't see a seal, assuming that is where it is supposed to go. Anyone know if there any diagrams of how the pole is supposed to be put together. Thanks - All help appreciated

    Just loaded the game and all my programmation settings have had 12 hours added to them. All was fine when I check 15min ago.

    Tuomotu Islands - Tide Data

    I'm looking for a Tidal app that covers the Tuomotu Islands. Online resources are not low bandwidth friendly. So I was hoping to find an app for an iPad. There would appear to be 30+ tide apps in I store. Hoping someone has experience with which one(s) might work in that area. Closest Tidal Stations are managed by the French.

    Noticed an interesting tibit. Viewing my boat from Magool 3D view. Speed of my boat matches his boat, so I show I am moving 0. And vice versa. When viewing him from my boat, he still shows sailing 20kts.

    it works for me on a PC if I leave it open for several hours in the background it will eventually crash with a webGL memory issue.

    well I didn't see that coming. A slew of boats diving way south. Maybe no choice as they are on the backside of the front. will be interesting to see how that move plays out. Routing program says NFW, but we shall see

    13nm separates the top 1000 boats. crazy - not much room to change that either in the next few days. not many passing lanes. says the boat slowly dropping back. need to bite the bullet and back down and clear the keel
