  1. Is this any use? Maxwell Winch Service Manual--small (1).pdf
  2. That's grand thanks. It's definitely not NX2 so hopefully it should all work... Cheers
  3. You Sir, are a legend. Thanks for that, my WSI box has been reprogrammed so I'll hook it all up and see what happens. Be nice to turn that ornament on the top of my mast into something a bit more useful. Final old Nexus question: Is there any way to output the data to a laptop? I'd like to have a play with OpenCPN tactics and build some polars. The interwebs would suggest not... Cheers and thanks again.
  4. Has anyone got experience with the NX starter system with the WSI box and no server? I've gone with a wired wind transducer but didn't get the brief on where to attach the cable. The WSI box is full so I'm assuming it goes directly to the back of the instrument itself, can anyone clarify please? Thanks
  5. .... at high tide of course.
  6. What on God's green earth possessed you to posit this question?! Has the Volvo clunk sent you round the bend?
  7. Yep it sure looks mint in your photos, well done on the clean up. The dust looked reminiscent of electrical bearing type stuff but you're far more technical than me! I've got a wee fella with a bucket of crap that visits all the nooks and crannies of my boat and sprays it liberally around, industrious soul is he...
  8. I meant to thank you for providing the manual above, so thanks! I had a wireless NX2 system which I changed to wired earlier this year, haven't managed to hook it up yet to see if it works, and if the reprogramming of the server was successful. Hard to find support for this gear I found. If you strike problems with your testing I've still got the old wireless head, welcome to it if it's of any use. Cheers, Dave
  9. So, I went with the MacGlide from MPS. I was keen to explore options other than conventional antifouling and following a bit of research I decided that I'd give this system a go. Due to a combination of factors the boat has been sitting on a mooring up the Weiti River for six months now and has got a fairly 'healthy' layer of slime on it. I have not dived on the boat for a couple of reasons: a) I'm a wuss, and b) I wanted to give the product a decent test of it's claimed performance as a self cleaning film. Fingers crossed I'll be sailing the boat in two to three weeks time, at which point
  10. I'm not sure it's a good recommendation but I have used Gulf Harbour Marina for my 7.8m wide tri. Bit pricey I believe and hardstanding fees are factored at 1.5x for multihulls. On the plus side there's plenty of services available and the folk there were really pleasant to deal with. I have also used Fusion Marine out the back of Silverdale, they're good guys and were pretty reasonable (also 1.5x for cats) and should be able to haul your boat, there was a big cat on the hard whilst I was there. It's just a hardstand attached to a boat builders yard though if you're looking for some wo

    Whoops, my bad. Been a handbag fight there somewhere...

    That's awesome! And good on them for thinking outside the box, the more the merrier for the LV. Wouldn't it be a hoot if the Cup was contested between Te Aihe and the next boat. Sadly I reckon the other three teams might not be so receptive...
  13. Okay, I now know a whole bunch more about the Faroes than I ever thought I would (Faroe ponies, very cool...) How on earth did you divine that their policy was the genesis of Legasea? Irrespective, thanks for sending me down the Google hole, very informative! I is a signatory.

    Excellent thanks Michael, all the control lines to those winches will go through rope clutches so will only need the 'tailing' when they're in use, if that makes sense. Cheers, Dave
