    J/80 furler

    I just spoke with someone in tech support at Harken, and yes, the solution is the key under the cap, which I didn't know about.

    J/80 furler

    J/80 with a Harken unit 00 AL furler. Any tips on adjusting the forestay turnbuckle? We need to shorten it by about an inch to hit the forestay arc measurement recommended in the tuning guide. We can slide the foil up, but can only expose one-half of the turnbuckle. We could pull the cotter pin and take up the required number of turns on the threads that we can see, but I doubt we'd get the cotter pin back in, as that hole would slowly disappear up into the unit. I don't see any way to separate the drum from the torque tube. Any suggestions appreciated.

    That Shark is definitely about to round a mark. The driver was in the 2008 Olympics
  6. I remember an owner requesting a Wicked Wanda graphic. He left a copy of Penthouse for research. The loft owner said he would have to pass it by the women who ran the sewing machines. I don’t know if the request was fulfilled.

    Bolt in carbon mast

    Through bolting is not possible, nor is any sort of backing plate, washer and nut, etc. The location is more than 3m from the butt of the mast.

    Bolt in carbon mast

    A bolt securing a spinnaker track to the mast apparently has stripped. Should you fill, redrill and retap? (I am assuming the bolt was tapped into the carbon. ). Insert a threaded sleeve? Tap out to next largest bolt?

    Settle a tie

    The final published results are correct. See the attached. I posted here for third-party confirmation of what I already knew, so that if it came to it I could refer the thread to the scorer — who incidentally thought that ties are broken by ‘who-beat-who-more-often’. Thank you, Tax Man; you are a gentleman. Thanks also to JohnMB and TJSocal for the support. No thanks to those with some really bad attitudes. I’m looking at you, Surfer.

    Settle a tie

    What is worse is finishing overlapped with the first place boat in the last race. If you do the math, you will see what I mean...

    Settle a tie

    It’s not that straightforward. I’m tempted to see how difficult the Appendix A tie-break algorithm would be in Excel, but then I think, nah I got better things to do. For the record, I was on boat A. I wrote to the regatta organizer to have the final published results corrected.
