Hi Craig,

Welcome to SeaKnots. This is a great website for sailors but unfortunately participation is not what it once was but we can always change this part by inviting our friends. Take care and hope you meet some kewl people here.

Wanted to say hello and make new friends with hopes to sail the world :)

I'm new to the site and just finding myself around. Looking forward meeting others and finding my way back to sea.

Wow nobody has been here for awhile and a long while. I wanted to say hello and love to meet people. I love sailing and I am a sailor with a disability but no less capable smiles. I hope to see more activity here and fair winds and following seas

Knocking the cobwebs off of this page.  January is almost over and I'm dreaming of the upcoming sailing season.  My boat is in Curtice, Ohio (east of Toledo on Lake Erie) and I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time on the water.  Hope to see some of you out there!

Landlocked in eastern WA but working my way west as soon as I am able.  In the mean time I go out with the local yacht club when I don't have a photo shoot taking up my weekends.

"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."

"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…"

"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…"

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"
