    Stackpack with dutchman?

    I think Lund Sails has come up with a clever idea, they use two zippers, thus the top half comes off while sailing, nothing flapping around, and relatively simple to put on the top when done. https://www.lundhsails.se/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/lazybag-sp.jpg

    BandG zeus2 updates

    But I was tied up to the dock. i.e. real speed = 0 the spedo also said speed =0 i.e no current /HW

    BandG zeus2 updates

    TWS Not equal AWS at dock! Hi when I just got the mast up this year, sitting at the dock, I noticed that AWS and TWS differed quite a bit, the logg showed 0 knots, e.g. no current, The only rationale I can think of is different damping for AWS and TWS, Is there a way to adjust the damping? I have not found it,... Any other explanation?

    See http://www.blur.se/2019/03/05/j-111-blur%C2%B3-bg-h5000-the-autopilot/ for some fairly comprehensive comments, Cred to Peter for disclosing that he has a commercial connection to the local distributor.

    Small boat jib furler - what's out there?

    http://rullfock.se/ this system is about the least inexpensive You can find, and it is quite popular here in Sweden, works with hanked sails, but you can not sail with a partially furled sail. /HW PS I have no affiliation with the company
  10. I have seen Simple Plastic funnels being used for this purpose.

    BandG zeus2 updates

    I must give credit to BandG for their SW updates, last year they updated the autopilot integration, so well that the standalone controller seems superfluous, Today I had the first sail of the year and tried the new windplot feature https://ww2.bandg.com/downloads/zeus2-software-update/ The only problem I have with it is that it shows that I must calibrate my system, since every tack shows a jump in the TWD, I wish I could claim to be smart enough to only tack on shifts, but unfortunately bad calibration is a much more plausible explanation. Now I just wish for a display which plots SOG and speed ( from log) in the same diagram, preferably as a percentage of one form the other to give direct calibration factor (assuming no current)

    required navigation tools

    Have a look at http://www.yrvind.com/bris-sextant-for-sale/ it is a very simple but still accurate sextant.
