  1. Graham,. Did you experiment with the smaller vane that Alan mentioned in the video?
  2. Graham. How did Carlita do to windward 'the hard way'? How did your self steering work? Any observations on the TX 200? Any photos or videos? Thanks
  3. Thrillsbe: "If I were to circumnavigate with my BRS15, the variation would change continuously, but the variation would remain constant." Dis you mean the declantion would change continuously?
  4. If you look at the other Youtube links in Thrillsbe's post, you will find 2 that use a roller on the rear of the roof This uses a PVC roller- it is in German, but a Ludwig should spreken, nein? This uses a kayak cart
  5. Randy- IMHO the mizzen only thing works for you because the bare main mast is up for balance. Why don't you try the mizzen in the middle mast step? it seems from Greendane's post that the mizzen sprit is higher.
  6. Chick, This may give you some ideas for loading the canoe, and maybe also Turtler too.
  7. What Lennie & Steve said!
  8. Pics work for me
  9. Alan, How do you disconnect the mizzen or mizzen staysail halyard from the main masthead once the main mast is up?
  10. From Spot it looks like Waldo's home. How about report & Pics
  11. Since the hole is for a lashing, the chamfer left by the 1/2" drill might be an advantage.
  12. I might change my mind about the seagull- I could put up with almost anything to avoid that chainsaw racket
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
