Re: Water Pump Rebuild Kit

if The bearings are good you can replace the rear pump seal with the pump installed on the engine. A piece of bend rod will help push the seal out from the back of the pump. I did mine a couple of weeks ago. Once the impeller is removed push the seal out from the back towards the front of the pump. ...

Re: Outhaul boom cleat replacement

BTW if you compare the old cleat to the new one you’ll see how the line just wears through the soft Al. The new one works perfectly.

Re: Outhaul boom cleat replacement

My outhaul cleat wore out last season too. Looking for the easiest way out I replaced it with the exact same part. It was cheap and took less than ten minutes to install. The line has not slipped once since. Probably the easiest boat repair ever. Guess you can put something better but been out in mi...

Re: Helm Friction Lock

I did this repair and picked up a 1" stainless shaft collar from McMaster Carr. They stock them in 303 SS for around $18 and in 316 SS for around $35. You might need to reseat the snap ring before installing the collar.

Re: LED lighting

Plus one for Marinebeam. They offer a RED GREEN replacement bulb for the Perko nav light mounted on the pulpit. I pulled the original bulb out and replaced it while comparing against the site. I did almost all of the interior lights and all the nav lights except the steaming light. Big savings in po...

Re: Winterize Head

I winterize the head once the boat is hauled out. I use a 1" ID clear plastic tube around 1 foot long. Cut the end of the tube square and flush using a new razor blade. Place a little superlube or silicone grease on the end with the clean cut, this will help the tube seal against the hull. Put the o...

Re: Ice Box lid .....

This is how our lid is supported. Works very well. The thumb latch will hold it open while sailing.

Re: Recommended Battery Replacement

Hi Dan, I was able to fit two Firefly batteries in the stock location. I am running one regular Lifeline AGM as a reserve and two Fireflys as the house bank. The Fireflys will fit if you put them in the aft two locations. Then I changed the positive wiring to retain the 1 BOTH 2 positions. The Firef...

Re: Cheap Whisker Pole Setup?

Our club does a lot of JAM racing. It is hard to be competitive against genoa boats with whisker poles. Sometimes I can sail off the wind at higher angles and jybe downwind. Sailing a much longer distance but faster. It helps but is not ideal. Try and petition the RC to make JAM racing triangle cour...

Re: Propane Tank wont fill

I ran into this two years ago. I believe the tank needs to be filled while on its side like when mounted in the locker.

Re: Class Jib (North Sails 3DL 105%) for sale

Couple of questions. Does this sail have a sun cover or will I need a sock? I ask because it looks like it has a taffita on one side. Second question was this a racing or cruising sail? Meaning was it cut low to the deck and with a roach like a racing sail or is it higher cut. When was the sail buil...

spin halyard

Hello All,
I need to replace on of my spin halyards this season. Was wondering if anyone had a good recommendation for a replacement. I'm not looking for grand prix level stuff but something at least as good as what was original or maybe one step better.

Thanks.
