Re: Harken Winch Drum Resurfacing

Thank you! I see there is a difference between the Radial 40 and the Proforma 40, for 20% higher price. https://info.upffront.com/en-gb/blog/the-differences-between-harken-radial-and-performa-winches Looks like the Proforma is tougher on the lines with higher Abrasion but fewer wraps. Any regrets or...

Re: Class Rules Interpretation for Handrails and Rope Clutches

Halyard slipping has gotten rather worse in 2022. Three years back we upgraded to the smaller diameter ceramic version of the Spinlock teeth and a constrictor style clutch addition. For winter I am thinking what to do about it, any advice? 1) I don't remember why, but our second clutch on the halyar...

Re: Harken Winch Drum Resurfacing

1) I have the 40.2 harken winches and wondering if it would be a good investment rather than resurfacing the original drums.

I have the winch you can service from above, so that would not be a benefit of upgrading. Do the new winches match the hole pattern?

Thanks!

Re: Harken Winch Drum Resurfacing

When investigating this, I learned that Harken has stopped on these drum jobs through Harken. I can get a recommendation to an outside machinist to rough them up but they do not have a small anodizer to do the recoating.

Anyone know of other options?

Champlins Discount for Race Week through 12/31/22

Thinking of Block Island Race Week 2023 - If registration by 12/31 on yachstcoring, there is a process they send you via email to register at Champlins Marina at the discounted price of $6.5/foot instead of the $10.5/foot which will be their published rate.
Strider will be there.

Wouldn't it make sense to hang on to it, and race at Block Island Race Week in 2023?

Re: Lithium batteries for J/109 class

I read a review a year or two back on practical sailor magazine I think that compared Firefly, Odyseey, and I think one other advanced AGM battery. The author wrote that over a short period of time the Firefly and its competitors lose their fast charging capability and need some love to get it back,...

World Sailing Categorization Problems With Website

One of my crew is running into an issue, maybe someone is seeing this same problem?

The website is putting a blue bar on top of the categorization questionnaire form preventing the user from entering information.

Re: WANTED: Deep Keel J/109 for LI Sound racing

I don't know of a J/109. I do want to offer an incentive to keep it in Huntington and race it wednesday nights against us.

Are you considering it?
