  1. Seriously! I see a few of these something is wrong out there in interweb land
  2. Oh so obvious ... How did I miss that.
  3. WTF Am missing something here
  4. But what does it do? What if someone hits it ? Has it got a steaming light ? What if Physce hits it and sinks one or the other . Will insurance cover it? Very cool but why ? Is it colregs compliant will it give way ? To other vessels under sail ? Who paid for it and why ?
  5. Yep put in wrong place I did. I should know better.
  6. I've had two go from new motor in three years. I think dry start ups are the culprit ...for whatever reason you have a dry start...barring the maybe faulty one. I have noticed that after a longish period sailing at a reasonable pace...eg quick for a few hours or a dozen or more hours when I start up the donka donka it takes a while to pump...no alarm fitted but my ears tell me!..that hollow exhaust sound of oh f*ck. I have taken to shutting off seacock when I know we are going for a Hoon for hours for example ssanz or whatever. Initially I had a loop with a anti syphon at
  7. When mine shattered in the rough not from heat I made a pattern out of appropriate thickness MDF with the holes for handles and bolts and even drew on the pattern for the blackout round the perimeter and took it to window shop and hey presto turned up one week later exactly like the original holes,blackout and all. Yes there is a fireplace glass but when they identified the remains it turned out to be just toughened glass but mine was the outer glass not the inside glass. And it was cheap like $220
  8. Anyone got one of these like would like to sell or hire? Looks to be the go
  9. My cylinder has a tempering valve to avoid being to hot out of tap. Also I would have thought that the relief should not vent at engine temp/pressure on a modern marine small engine which should be a low psi header tank cap which usually is only about 7psi vs a car which is up 13 psi. Seems wierd...maybe some fuckery going on for it to relieve?

    Yep used that form and bent by hamd.. Only had to use an extension bar once when the tail got short. I used my mockup pvc to make to jog about right and marked 100 mm graduations along it after the main bend and used the opposite direction to create the bow bit by bit. I brought t 6m lengths of stainless so had plenty of leverage but a bit wasteful... Anyway had to try it and it worked. I'm sure if I went for a tighter radius I think sand filling would be required to stop kinks in this form. Of Bending or maybe a groove in the form and the opposite on a roller with lever on t

    Just bent my own 1" stainless... Came up mint without even filling with sand but the radius was pretty big. Just takes a bit of thought and measuring.... Oh and a trial piece.

    Idea... but not much room for that. Maybe get me scissors out and choppy chop

    Ahhh yeah it's a mock up. Best way I could think of to do it relatively cheap. And yup electrical conduit is more pricey than ya would like or expect when paying retail. Normally I keep plenty from demo jobs but got sick of throwing it out so stopped keeping it.

    I hear ya... When cruzy mode never use extras but if I did they sheet across to headsail winches.... See other comment about electric. I really would love it taller but bom may dictate that. Guess could always cruz with the flattening reef which lifts it a little. Bloody compromises
