    Replacing balls in Harken traveler

    Its a Melges 24 and the end of the track is very close to the sides of the cockpit. Not enough room there to remove a car...

    Replacing balls in Harken traveler

    Do I need to remove the track from the boat to remove the car?
  3. Hi Im trying to replace the balls in my mainsheet traveler on my Melges 24. But I cant figure out how to do it. There are two metal clips on each side but it makes more damage to remove them than not replacing the balls. Do I need to dismantle the whole track?

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    There is not going to be any parking spot at the finish this time. But they probably moved it not to get any VO65 blasting at +20 kts in the inner harbour...

    How to build large format display

    Originaly there where two KVH maxi displays on my boat (Compass and Log) First the compass got water in it so I back engineered how data was sent to the display and built a new one with 7- segment LEDs (Top) Then I added a LCD standard RS232 monochrome to see if the would work. (Middle) Not very good in direct sunlight Bottom is in photo a KVH display for speed but is replaced with a NASA yacht repeater. (Bottom) It displays only 1/10th of knot. I missing the 1/100th decimal though.
