A few weeks ago I bought a 2.5 Nissan outboard from a guy in the mislands. I will use it on my rib, 12 ft 1964 Crestliner Super Fisherman and also my Howler 8 ft hard dinghy. It runs really nice so lets hope it keeps it up with maintenance.

Rib Repair

Posted on September 1, 2012 at 6:30pm 1 Comment

Well after cleaning the yard today I decided it was time to seal up my Seaworthy Rib, Been putting it off and have boat fever again.

Mus have been because I moved the Tartan to a mooring. Getting boat fever again. I want to sell the Tartan but it seems there are not many buyers for sailboats these days.

Oh well lets see if the sealant will repair the few leaks I have in the Rib.

 

Moving Boats

Posted on August 30, 2012 at 10:04pm 0 Comments

Well Friday it is time to move the Tartan 27 from the slip to a mooring. Tired of paying slip fees at a marina that is way to unfriendly. I have my Cal on mooring also but will be looking to put in a slip or dock as time and money allows.

Still need a tranny for the Cal. Oh well I believe I will be spending more time with Cal and less with Tartan till the Tartan is sold or traded.

"Thanks for all your comments my friends at Seaknots. The halyard has been rerun without passing through the small stainless steel eye, as seen easily in the pic provided by Chris on 17th August. All furling now takes place without any undue effort,…"

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible. I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning????? (Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"
