  2. Why not put grease on the gears ?? I would have thought load the sucker up with grease. Oil would just run out and all over the place. Thanks Guys Steve
  3. Cheers mate, What are the pawls ?? Sorry first time into a winch

    Rudder.

    Hi Guys, Just thought I would give you all an update on my Rudder. Well Soulmates been out of the water for little bit now. this is what the rudder project is starting to evolve to. Boat project ticking away nicely as well. Only thing my template is 2.7 M long and my ply is 2.4 M.. You can get 3 M ply aye ? This is only a temp fix. I will also be going down the line of original inboard rudder. But I will be using this one till the time comes to go back to O.E Cheers guys
  7. Hey mate if you get sorted.. I could be interested in your Tiller handle.
  8. Hi Guys I don't mind so much if it goes somewhere else ( Maybe change my mind depending on time zone lol) but I would be bummed out if the 38th AC does not come back to home waters. (But yes we have to keep it first) Steve
  9. Hi Guys, Thanks for those who have come over to join the FB page. I hear you all about the devil that is FB but as some has mentioned its just a place where you can ask a question on the fly and hopefully get an answer pretty quickly. Spent sometime on Soulmate this weekend before the weather turned to crap. Had my boy sanding the hull back and i was opening up some osmosis blisters. Thank god not many. then took out the old head .. wow that was fun !!! Cheers guys Steve
  10. Hi guys, I have sent the admins of this site a message to see if i could post this. This was a few days ago and they have not come back to me so i will take that as all good. Right I have started a Facebook group called "Sailboat Reno s New Zealand" I did this so people like me that have a project boat can come and swap / chat / bounce ideas of each other. It will give the user a easy way to access info on there phone rather having to sit down on a PC/Laptop and look for info. This is not to take away from this awesome website as i believe both can work side by side. So c

    Rudder.

    HI Guys, @Fish Mate thanks so much for your advise. I really do appreciate it. And to all you guys you are amazing with your advise. I am going to take the transom hung rudder off and take it home strip the paint of it and see what i have to work with. I am going to look at it this way., I am still learning my boat I am still learning to become a not so bad sailor. Bearing that in mind I am not out there to brake speed records (well not yet anyway haha) so with the rudder I have and will improve, will be my training rudder. just to take it easy slowly cruise around the gulf.

    Hi Guys, Well suggested mod is out !! thanks guys. @BOIGuy I have not had a sail in her as yet. As I have been busty with life and having to fix some things on her before i could even move off the swing mooring that she was attached to Now that she is on the hard doing her up for summer and having a sail. But when i was motoring over to the haul out. I did note the the tiller had a big vibration. This might have been prop wash going past the rudder ??? but looking at the rudder the prop is not up and close like some rudders that are very close to the prop. So the vibration/Shudd

    Hi Guys, Well soulmate is out on the hard. YAY !!!!! As you can see by the picks you can see where the repair work has been done to move the skeg line up to the transom when the original rudder came off. By The looks of things I don't think its gonna be to much of a drama to fix and get it back to the way it was. Just need the spec's of the old rudder or someone that has a CAV out of the water that I can get some dimensions off. The last pic is what I am thinking on doing to the transom hung rudder to make it work a bit better. As always guys I am open to your o
