Re: Head Plumbing and Y-valve

Practical sailor magazine lead me to believe all these are equal. https://www.practical-sailor.com/systems-propulsion/joker-valves-for-marine-heads Other potential clues: * It only seems to siphon only when set to overboard, and not when set to holding tank. * The holding tank unexpectedly filled up...

Re: Head Plumbing and Y-valve

Waste is siphoning back into our head this season, half a bowls worth, from minutes to after an hour after every use, even though the holding tank is empty. The position of the Y valve doesn't matter, happens in both positions. New Joker valve and base gasket installed at start of the season success...

Re: Mainsheet - New for 2020 - 10mm Alpha Ropes SSR

What was your choice for a new mainsheet and fine tune?

Stern Light Overheating

When I purchased Strider the Sternlight was melted a bit, and going through bulbs quickly. I replaced the bulb with an LED bulb and didn't realize until now it is also overheating, compensating by turning half the elements off and blinking after it warms up. Seems like the enclosure is too small / t...

Re: Dual Genoa Cars Not Allowed

No deck penetration? Cool, I missed that! Do you do this 2nd car? Some questions if you do (1) Anything I should know about choosing/purchasing the car, as I see the ideal car (tangs on each end, no sheve) is not available. Do I add tangs to the harken car somehow? (2) When you set it up for a remov...

Re: Dual Genoa Cars Not Allowed

I can see the rationale for switching to 4:1 and did in fact do this a couple of weekends ago. Unfortunately, in response to the COVID pandemic, we need to make our boats easier to operate not more difficult in reduced crew size scenarios as we are encountering now as our clubs and others on long is...

Re: Fluxgate compass mounting location

Your welcome. If you unavoidably need to pass through battery wire a common choice/remedy is to instead cross over it at a 90-degree angle and otherwise stay 3" or more away.

Dual Genoa Cars Not Allowed

When swapping between OD jibs and PHRF jibs, it was suggested by my sailmaker to have two cars, one following an adjustable length behind the other. I learned through Bill and another part of this forum that it would be a rules violation. To make the modification of the class rule acceptable, it see...
