  1. ...and have a compression test done. That may supply you with more clues to the problem. Is it running ok other than smoke? Hell, that could be bad diesel fuel. They chug like crazy so thats normal. Just the one cylinder.
  2. Beta might be a replacement option. Costly. Take a look, or ask around in the Lake Ontario Laser 28 FB page.
  3. You may want to look at what each cut in the sail cover is going to cost too.
  4. Are you considering current? Can you calibrate STW through the Garmin display menu? If so, I suggest detaching any gps units from the network before doing so. Run the calibration, then put gps back in the network.
  5. My experience in 104 was that the other students in the class were simply taking the course as a way to charter a boat in the BVI. The 104 sticker and a credit card and they were all set. I don't think they cared much about seamanship or safety. It's likely they never sail/motor anything accept a charter boat. Asshole plugged the head twice during 6 day onboard school. Second time, I looked at the instructor and said we're (wifey was with) taking the dinghy ashore for a drink, y'all have fun. I was already annoyed that I stuck my hand in the fridge for a beer and it came out with s
  6. The simple answer is yes. However, when I took 104, it was clear that there were other students aboard that would not achieve some, if not all of your list under duress. Just taking the course doesn't mean you will be experienced. Its the education followed by experience/repetition that makes your list become easy. Lots of folks take those classes too close together with lack of on water experience.
  7. I have the YDWG-02 as well. Works well, easy setup. nmea 2000 capable wifi with it's own customizable data readouts. So you can look at readouts on iPad as soon as you have it setup in the network.
  8. Yeah, I think the Karver's are probably overkill, but I did mention power concerns in a previous post so good to know. Also pretty pricey. I'm replacing Barbarossa 32.2st...I think they are from two different eras. I estimate my sheet loads to max out around 650lbs. Antal 30 seems to fit the load requirement and the winch pad base. Not sure if the race version is worth the extra $$$.
  9. Damn! Those are sweetspensive in a small package.
  10. Just had a tech chat with Mauri Pro...He thinks the Antal 30's will handle the job just fine, so I may just go that way. Thanks for the ideas and help.
  11. I was/am considering both those options. I have concerns about the drum size and power of those winches, but having said that, maybe I'm over thinking it. While racing, we are almost always close to final trim by hand. We almost exclusively race with a 108% jib.
  12. What materials are used for adapter plates? I think I get the idea, and I am all about making it easier.
