    Is 'All pink on the outside gear' cool?

    Sweet. The colour of my boat is telemagenta.

    Is wearing sunglasses cool?

    I wish I was as cool as this guy. Seriously. My current look is one step above homeless, I have just sort of given up caring.

    Composite strength is remarkable.

    Pulsing in rudder/tiller

    When you set the prop, with most gearboxes you can rotate it by hand when in gear, but only one way.

    Could you go for a deeper keel with a much lighter bulb? 1800kg seems like to much.

    Calling all Arduino geeks

    Same reason cars have turn signal lights instead of semaphores in the b pillars.

    Is 'All pink on the outside gear' cool?

    It was only a hundred years ago when pink was the colour for boys and blue was the colour for girls.

    Port Tacking the Feet.

    i find a couple of big primered patches on the side of the boat let the other boats know you are willing to defend your position.

    Corby 33 Rebuild

    i got a new keel designed for my boat but used an existing bulb design and mould, about 1300kg. The new fin is fabricated mild steel plate, designed to fit the existing floors in the boat. The Whole lot was done by Greg Elliott, and wasn't super expensive, and what a nice dude. There is another thread for chainplates. What an exiting project, good on you.
