at 0752, just minutes after it happend, that was theONLY word that was posted ANYWHERE.
snce then , there has been a bit more--like, was a production, not drilling rig. that it was not leaking or spewing. so far. tjhat5 it was vermillion 380, just miles west of the bp rig. but at 0752, merely minutes after the event, what i -posted was the ONLY word out there. i tuned in to wwl fm, NOLA for news. if you want GOOD info, go there. wwl, new orleans.

A sailboat crossing the Atlantic collided with a submerged object 600 nautical miles west of the Azores....This was one of my biggest fears last year when we did the crossing. I am so happy to see that everyone onboard is safe.

The Nantucket LightShip LV-112 , now owned by a museum group that will preserve her, has sucessfully sailed (under tow) to Boston From Aistoria.
She currently resides in East Boston , her New Permanent Home.
Hopefully Her Historical Group will be sucessful with Her Preservation, but
for right now She needs Volunteers and Of Course Money for Drydock.
As a former Coastie, I feel the Burning in me to help Her, and will travil to Boston on my Ship the "NOKOMIS" this summer to evaluate and help repair her Machinery.
This Vessel is the most Historic of all the Lightships and needs our HELP,
IF you can help in any way please do , as this is not only our Marine History, but our Herritage as Well , There fore if you consider yourself a SAILOR , please
find some way to help her that fits your capability. (SHE has aWebsite).

"There's no circling on the 40/43 winches. It's simply a screw off collar. WD40 and a heavier hammer should get the job done."

Bruce Bogdanoff replied to Wayne's discussion Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Mike is correct. The is a vertical pin in the middle of the winch handle hole that pushed down and disengages the electric motor on the winch. Also, on my Oceanis 45, there is a circlip that holds the top on. I don't remember if the 40 electric…"

Wayne replied to Wayne's discussion Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Thanks Mike. I did use a light hammer but I do have heavier ones at work and I did use WD40. As for a disengagement pin, I didn't see one when I looked down in the top of the winch. I did see a small circular pattern in the bottom that I…"

"Thanks Mike, however I have tightened both attachments and if you grab the track in the middle you can move it side to side making the noise. I took it apart, slid the track forward to add tape to both side of the boom, than careful slid the track…"

"I can't imagine anything in the winch top that would bend. Other than the electric drive and a disengagement pin that activates when the winch handle is inserted the winch is the same as the others. It sounds like the collar is jammed due to…"

Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch

Took care of the lint build up on the fridge condensers and the leaky shower sump this weekend. Then went to the electric cabin top winch to disassemble, clean and lube only to find the top cap wouldn't unscrew. It should have by light tapping with a screwdriver but to no avail.So I stepped it up a notch with a brass drift and screwdriver and again, no go. I then tried a steel drift and the cap never moved in the slightest. It is as if it was secured with permanent Lock Tite.Now when I say its…See More

"I'm having a knocking from the boom while sailing. The track on top of the boom is loose, but it can't be tightened any further. Has anyone else had this problem, if so has anyone found a solution"
