My Ford Lehman 120's have an issue like that, where the belt loops around a coolant line. I string a fresh belt around the same coolant line so it can be changed on the fly without cracking the coolant lines if necessary.Fuck that. If ever there was a use-case for a link belt, that's it.
I keep a couple metres of A and B section link belt about the place, it's very handy when you are pushed for time and don't have the correct size belt to hand.
It might be fun being a farmer with a good ol' girl like this helping you hold down the homestead...Oh, no doubt about that - knowing first hand just how much like hard work it is, and how you're subject to a lot of things totally outside your control, from weather to prices, I've the utmost respect for them.
I just don't want to be one. Or watch hobby farmers on YouTube either.
Come on Israel, if you are going to post links like that here then do us all a favor by using the YT 'copy video link at current moment' to simple cut to the chase for us busy viewers...
I was watching this Youtube video today. I was curious how he got dismasted. I have a feeling it was lack of maintenance, and possibly corrosion from all those steps up the mast. Boat didn't look very old and the winds and waves where not very big (30kts, 6-8ft swell). But, none the less, he lost the rig.
