    Propeller Shaft Fore/Aft play

    Or you could tighten up the retaing bolts to see if the shaft still moves. If the shaft doesn't move fore and aft then put a "4 sale" on it. Get the boat you really want. Or sail it. Your choice...

    Farymann Charging

    I am thinking my old Harley Sportster used the same style voltage regulator. You may find a few of those for sale if look in the right places. The permanent magnets in the clutch basket put out 50 volts from the two wire plug, then the regulator took that down to 14 v dc. Just pointing out some options, hope it works out for you

    Peterson 35 Ganbare Identification and Revival

    Ghallager, a Peterson 35, is alive and well on Cowichan Bay. We still race around the Gulf Islands from time to time. Great for cruising, we sail with a furling number 2 head sail. The tiller is hands off for the most part. Great boat.

    Cost Of Custom Race Boats

    Mr. Sloop, I think the closest thing you are going to find in a modern setting would be the Left Coast Dart. Not sure how far north of 100 K the 5 boats produced are fetching right now. Having looked into Ogopogo from the wrong side of the bull rails, it looks like a comfortable compromise between racing , and being able to sleep aboard at a regatta. They are plenty quick on the water, too. It will be interesting what remains around in the next 2 decades. Hoping it's not all J70s in ten years...

    HOSE CLIP FAILURE

    If you have to use a screw clamp look for these

    HOSE CLIP FAILURE

    Engine hoses, yes. Bilge lines I might use https://images.app.goo.gl/bzdgVN3RUYtounqdA. Also consider the type of material being clamped. Silicone hoses versus the harder rubber types, in any case the clamp should exert even pressure all the way around the fitting .

    HOSE CLIP FAILURE

    Ok, I am currently working for a highway maintenance contractor. Road brine is normally around 24 % salt. The truck has a fair bit of plumbing, the best being held together with tee bolt stainless clamps, but the key is replacement, nothing lasts more than a season. Surprisingly, the spring clamps seem to last the longest. Your results may vary.

    Can you Dye (color) Rope?

    What about your boat deck. Did the sheets bleed Color onto your deck?

    HOSE CLIP FAILURE

    At the risk of assassination, the spring clamps used in the auto sector are far superior to tha screw clamps. Only 30 years of experience with engines.. Argue all you want, lol
