  1. I have tried a few of the copper free paints on the rudder of my boat. Last year, I used ePaint ZO and there was so much grass by the end of the season that I think the active ingredient must be Rogaine. I had better luck with Petit Hydrocoat Eco but by the end of the summer it wasn't as effective as the copper ablative paint on the rest of the hull.
  2. what about multi-wall polycarbonate? https://www.interstateplastics.com/16mm-Polycarbonate-Hurricane-And-Storm-Panel-Full-Sheet-POLCECKSW.php?kitoptionpk=7245&src=adwordspla&thisisforcallrail=1&campaignid=225228743&adgroupid=37851262274&creative=153445283219&matchtype=&network=g&device=c&keyword=sheets-POLCECKSW-kits7245&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI14yGuqOm7wIVAZ2zCh2NEA2UEAQYAiABEgIstvD_BwE&
  3. If you played in a punk band and rode dirt bikes in high school then air cooled are not a problem but.... Has anyone seen attempts to muffle them?
  4. I think that it would be pretty straightforward to add coamings to a j22 for more back support and comfort sitting in the cockpit
  5. Wouldn't it just be easier to get the exact height/length right if you sleeved it. There has to be quite a bit of that mast section available to cut off a certain amount of the bottom and add back the same amount with an internal sleeve.
  6. Fish Reef is for sale!
  7. I don't have a windlass so I switched to a large Fortress. The other thing that I did was to make up a spectra strop with a chain hook on one end and a loop for the bow cleats. When I take up the anchor I can quickly drop the chain hook onto the chain when I am right over the anchor and power over the anchor to break it loose. If I still need to take up a bit more chain by hand I can pull the chain to me and the chain hook is right by my hands. I can just reach forward and drop it 3 or 4 feet farther up on the chain. I haven't tried a chain stopper but this is pretty easy to use if
  8. I did check on some plastic Igus ones and the strength is quite a bit lower. The problem that I am having is that the conductance of these joints isn't something that is specified

    But what about the osprey?
  10. I just measured for continuity from the body to the bearing that goes on the post and found that even when it was sitting flat on a table. The multi-tester indicated continuity.
  11. I have a boat with an aluminum rudder post and a whitlock steering system with a draglink. There are rod ends on each end of the draglink or rod connecting the pedestal to the rudder quadrant. I bought some stainless steel replacements that had ptfe races supposedly but the bearing is not electrically isolated from the body. I am not sure whether the whitlock replacements are isolated. I have been pretty careful with the electronics at the pedestal but would prefer to have things isolated as well as possible. The rod ends thread onto the rod. Would tefgel on the threads and a nylon w
  12. I had a spin pole that got a significant ding in the side. I cut about a foot of the same tubing and then slotted it lengthwise to make it a little smaller when closed. I slid it in and then riveted it in a couple of places. I don't know what your section looks like but if you could find a piece of the same section could you do the same thing?
  13. Just slap Espo's Charm School on the side and deduct the whole thing.
  14. Could it be rebuilt at a shop that does starters and alternators?
