SeaKnots

Boat show yesterday, spent the day with the crew looking at goodies and talking to engineers, designers, builders, mnaufacturers and the inevitable sales people.  With the weather being so bad we are not accomplishing much right now.  I did receive the PHRF certificate for our boat (Performance Handicap Racing Fleet), our particular rating is 150, which means that we get a handicap of 150 seconds per nautical mile from here to Hawaii.  That's 2057 miles x 150 /   3600  gives us 85.71 hours handicap or 3.57 days.   So now to research sail numbers and get one assigned the have to be applied to some or all the sails as well as to a generic piece of material that can be attached to the gull in case of dismasting. 

 

The inspection process of this race is quite daunting, it seems to go on forever.

 

we continue to try and get people to contact our kickstarter accound so that we can use the fliers to support a sales pitch to the vendors for parts and suppies donations.

"My hose clamps also needed tightening last year after I overheated the engine after an impeller failure. I assumed it was because the hose expanded or the clamp was not tightened properly when the boat was built. Final-Lee Ben. 40, hull 182"

water in sump near shaft packing gland

I recently found water in the sump aft of the engine under the packing gland. Of course my first suspicion was the Volvo gland, but turns out that the water was coming from the entry to the water lift muffler. Tightening both hose clamps stopped the leak. I had never checked those clamps before as they were a bit out of the way, but I suggest that its worth the effort. I found that the aft wood partition on the engine compartment was easy to remove / replace and enhanced access. Took the…See More

Sailing on . . .

Metaphorically I am sailing on. My life has taken a turn down a new road.  To encompass all that is going on Sea Knots might be limiting. Then again, the transition to sassea.blogspot.com is like sailing upwind against a current. It is as confusing as learning to sail. You might remember those days. Learning the foibles of a foreign language. Multiple meaning words like tack and phrases like 'fall off' were a bit mind boggling.Perhaps there is a closer resemblance to transiting from Sea Knots…See More
