  1. By this you mean drilling larger holes than required in the deck and filling with epoxy + high density filler and then drilling the right size hole in that? If it's something else do you have any links for further reading?
  2. Hi @TomP, I'm glad you've found some of the information here useful. The plywood plug has held up well. It stabilized that whole area but I think the load parallel to the aka (pushing the aka in) is mostly taken by the taper of the aka and not by the end plate itself. In my case the laminate was in decent condition, it was more the core that needed reinforcement. It will probably be a month or two before I have access to the boat. I can send pictures then of how the plug has held up to now. I would preemptively replace the forestay =) I had mine pop and heard a similar story from another
  3. MYC's 2 part interview with Ryan: https://www.facebook.com/groups/126451200728906/permalink/5194100113963964/?sfnsn=mo https://www.facebook.com/groups/126451200728906/permalink/5194105000630142/?sfnsn=mo
  4. My tohatsu 6 died coming in after the wind died. Pulled and cleaned the carb and all that crap, ended up being the spark plugs even though i scrubbed them clean (and they didnt look bad to being with). Easy things first.
  5. Mundt: that sounds like a practical solution, I like it! Waloo: great diagrams! I'm assuming that the light red line in the last pic is a rod with bearings top and bottom? Is the banana shape cutout required because of the motion of the tiller/rudder arms?
  6. Does anyone have pictures or a sketch of how the rudder linkage is setup beneath deck? Katchka (ex. Sparky) has the tiller running above deck just short of the traveller which is awkward during tacks. I was thinking of either retuning the linkage like the original design or raising the traveller to have the tiller pass through it. It would need to be a pretty beefy track for that though.
  7. Thanks for the suggestions! I'll try some of these techniques out. I tried to be mindful of the temperature not increasing. I did not wipe the plywood down with a lint cloth after sanding (when I tried that before it lifted a lot of half attached grain up). It seemed to get worse after the second coat.
  8. What am I doing wrong? Two layers of west 207 on bare okoume plywood and basswood. Applied with a west style yellow foam roller. Second layer went on when the first layer was still tacky but wouldn't peel when pressed with a gloved finger. The finish comes out very rough and takes a lot of sanding to smooth out. Any ideas? Sorry for the flipped pics..
  9. Ahh, much better =) cool project! How tall is the mast? Your sails sit pretty high off the deck. I'm thinking it would be useful to get the clew of my jib higher off the deck to better control twist going upwind. The slope of the deck is pretty radical. Right now I can either (1) move the car up to reduce twist but run the clew into the car too soon or (2) move the car back and spill out the top.
  10. That's because the forums already fucked you and stripped the exif metadata without rotating the image data.
  11. @carlwasher I had a chance to measure some of the rigging yesterday. The forestay is 3/16" stainless. The side stays are 3/8" dyneema.
  12. The broken image rotation has nothing to do with Apple products or Apple users. I suggest we move the image rotation discussion to the FAQ forum (linked below) where you will also see an explanation of the issue and an example from a Google android phone.
  13. To fix image rotation use https://www.onlineimagetool.com/en/rotate-png-jpg-webp-gif and select "auto" for rotation then upload the saved image. Images can have additional information stored in what's called the "exif metadata". The exif metadata can store rotation (eg. 0°, 90°, etc) in addition to the unrotated image pixel data. Sailing anarchy forums don't apply the exif metadata rotation (a bug in the software if that's the case). Another useful thing would be for them to automatically resize images down to a smaller size. The attached image was take with a Google Pixel 3 with

Maybe sailing anarchy forums don't apply the exif metadata rotation (a bug in the software if that's the case). I just ran into the same problem elsewhere and found that you can fix the image before uploading using https://www.onlineimagetool.com/en/rotate-png-jpg-webp-gif just select "auto" for rotation.
  15. Dave has done a bunch of good work restoring his boat already which i think will be useful to take into account when improving our boats.
