  1. Alan, How do you disconnect the mizzen or mizzen staysail halyard from the main masthead once the main mast is up?
  2. From Spot it looks like Waldo's home. How about report & Pics
  3. Since the hole is for a lashing, the chamfer left by the 1/2" drill might be an advantage.
  4. I might change my mind about the seagull- I could put up with almost anything to avoid that chainsaw racket
  5. OK Peter, my first one was a 74 and must have used 10:1. The second from the 80's used 25:1 as noted on the toolbox.
  6. I just looked at the old tool box I used to carry, and the fuel oil ratio is actually 25:1. If the blue smoke is not a deal breaker, a modern 2 stroke would probably give the light weight & reliability.
  7. I've had 2 seagulls- the really simple ones with no clutch or recoil starters. They were dependable and hell for stout but crude. I had one on a 16' ply Great Pelican, and it seemed to go as fast towing a 20' inboard/outboard as lone boat! The thing that wouldn't work today is the starting procedure. The instructions said to press the brass button on top of the 'carb' until you see a sheen on the water. I say 'carb' because I was told by someone who knows that it isn't really a carburetor but a mixing valve, sort of like a model airplane motor. The 'shear pin' was a spring of about 3/16 wire that wound 3 or 4 turns around the prop shaft and had the ends turned out to engage the prop & shaft. If you get one be REAL careful not to hit anything- Heaven only knows where you could find another. If memory serves, the mix was 10 to 1. Especially since they are out of production, I don't think I would buy another. Best regards Alex
  8. Love your anchor roller. Does the anchor automatically rotate from fluke forward, like the first photo to fluke aft, like the second photo? Also, you might want to think about incorporating a pair of wooden chocks into the design: Maybe a good winter project?
  9. Here is a report on the EC from LowRider, another class 4 (RoG 15). He mentions all the CS boats/people.
  10. PAR, based on the video of Alan in the CS 15, the CS's shouldn't be afraid of the tacking part, or are you saying that the production boats point higher?
  11. Graham, I know you didn't have much of a test before you scratched, but what do you think of her longer board?
  12. Nothing, I was able to open & read it
  13. i can't open the attachment
  14. This topic is a gentle hint to remind Roo and SOS that there is interest in knowing their experiences and observations on the EC
  15. Try posting the question in the Website Q & A section. I got an answer from Frank quickly yesterday there
