  1. Yea they look that way, but no. They were just flipped before this picture. The BBQ cooked them nice all the way through.
  2. Pork Chops and sausages, first BBQ of the season.
  3. Yea don't worry it's not going back on my boat. Yea I tried the rip test and it didn't rip.
  4. Episode 31 has a lady in it and has double the views of your average view amount. I think I know the issue.
  5. I will definitely buy this stuff when I install my light water fission reactor onboard.
  6. Yea thanks, a lot of guys on here seem to have a problem with money burning a hole in their pockets. I know it's not gonna win any beauty contests or races but I think it has some value still. We will see. Worst case I make a hammock out of the sail.
  7. Yea I agree, Gorilla tape is better but it was $3 CAD at the checkout at crappy tire.
  8. This is the elbow side which was harder to clean up. The threads are pretty beat but I'm gonna try it with some anti seize/sealant to make it work.
  9. I just had mine break on me. It actually busted at the joint between the manifold and the elbow. I had gone down below for a snack 1 hour into our cruise and I smelt smoke. Quickly looked in engine bay to see a little bit of water spurting out. Had my friend turn down the rpms and boom the thing blew out. We turned away from shore and got some distance with the sails up to shut down and access the situation. We hobbled back to port by duct taping it together and having my friend stand on the engine cover to apply pressure to the broken connection. The duct tape actually held out for a lot
  10. Luckily the boat came with a 1 year old 150 genoa that sails great and is still crisp. My last boat had shitty cloth sails that were smooth and old.
  11. Yea I like the duct tape Idea. I know this is not a nice sail but I though it would be good to at least try. Maybe I'll use the material for another project once I get another spare. Cheers
  12. The main damage is on the foot. The second tear is along the luff.
