    Re: GORI dual folding prop

    well that's odd... mine have holes in the shaft and nuts and a cotter pin goes thru. There may be also a screw that goes into a hole at the end of it. Mine are on Volvo engines, others may vary. I...

    Re: New Square top mansail problem

    Thanks! I can see it.

    Like I was thinking... if the halyard isn't quite tensioned, I should think the headboard would fall away from the mast. Does it?

    Re: New Square top mansail problem

    On a small boat, you'd just pull the top batten and stick it in the next lower pocket for storage when dousing the sail. If you can do that more easily than pulling the car pin, it'd probably fix...

  21. Re: How do you get people to give you over $2,500 per sailing video? Listen to this!

    They STOLE the music CD, and were going for more, when someone, perhaps the owner? ran them off. Those kids were engaging in theft. We're not talking about a long-abandoned boat offshore here.
  22. Re: How do you get people to give you over $2,500 per sailing video? Listen to this!

    well if La V. is up to that much, one wonders why they found it necessary to steal items from the upturned catamaran?
