  1. Will do, cheers
  2. Leakingvalve. It's on older Force4 tender (who are no longer in business). Are the valves propritory or generic between brands? Are the rubber valve seats (being a 30mm washer) which I've removed, able to be replaced? If so, who stocks them? Cheers
  3. I've gone through a few different tubes of glue. Don't cheapen out and only use one for pvc or hyperlon, whichever your tender is made from.
  4. Very good points, thanks TB. Absolutely hate the mast slap at 2am.
  5. Was told about having them out under the spreaders, so seems the way to go. One question though.... Is the halyard part yoked near the top from two lines, down to one, or are there two separate lines to the cleat on the mast?
  6. Good stuff. Eager to get on to it once the lockdown is over. May have more questions then but thanks to all who responded.
  7. Good stuff, thanks for the comments. Yup, I'm closing in on 60ish, and feeling the need to make life easier on a 32 footer. Who has the set up KM? Local chandler or self sourced?
  8. Thinking about installing for next summer. Id like people's opinion on them. It'll be great for single or short handed sailing (which is likely to be the main use), but is there a down side? I hear a lot about the hoist and drop of the main, and sometimes getting a bit of a tangle. Any thing else? Has anyone installed and thought it not worth the effort, hassle?
  9. Fyi, the valves are pretty easy to remove and service. I just turned the sealing rubber disc over and bingo, good for years more.
  10. Thanks for all the replies. Sorted now
  11. I'm after a valve key to use for a day, tops. Anyone in the Auckland area who can help me out? Please.
  12. Greetings. Hope I can advertise this event here.
