  1. Thanks for that! He looks to be in some nasty stuff right now... what is his strategy for the really bad stuff? Does he have a drogue... go with it with just a scrap of headsail..? does he have a regular 3 blade prop..?
  2. Fantastic effort! Do you have any pictures of the prep on the hard or otherwise. Would love to know details of what went into getting the boat ready for this. Twin backstays and reinforced boomkin, any bottom fairing? Max prop?
  3. Heres a link to a better tracking map: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1DE75k52wx-5x30_qRjXY8f3t24k&ll=0.6151674277985724%2C-8.02293623950186&z=3 I think Jeff Hartjoy left from somewhere in South America?

    Right. I was trying to find out if rectangular tube was off the shelf. The picture I originally referenced showed teh rectangular section. Carry on.

    Of course I was referring to the sprit itself, not the whole thing. Square carbon tube is available.

    What material will the bow pulpit be made from? ....assuming it will have a bow pulpit. Is the Carbon sprit from a standard section...or custom made...? Interesting project, thanks

    Nothing elegant about a Valiant 40 cabin top. Wow GWB! Them's fighting words. Why would you say such a thing? Because its true?

    This gives you some idea. Obviously, both are not used at the same time. The hydraulic shown is version 1.0 It has evolved since then. Please explain the huge aperture.

    How to rig an autopilot to the tiller? Pin on tiller and socket on cap rail. Raymarine EV 100 tiller pack or custom hydraulic like I have.Why is the huge aperture more efficient/desirable than a small aperture?
