Re: Spreaders....

Hi JFJ I did think someone might have come to your rescue earlier on this one, but siffice to say you are quite safe to shorten those spreaders a few inches. On my Eventide (Stretched to 27' 3" in the building), the spreaders are a couple of inches in from the overall beam. OK you still have to be a...

Re: New owner of YM senior boat in need of help!

Glad to hear you are getting there Joao. On the Medway you may need a Medway ports Authority licence, You should ask at the club. No other licence should be needed, unless you fit a VHF radio and that one is free, but you will need an opperators ticket, so have to go on a course for that. Again the ...

Re: Help - water leak in YM senior

Hello there Joao. I have managed to download all those photos and had a good look. Seems that there are many places the water my have got in? Is the leak right alongside the main keelson in the middle of the boat? Or on top of a bilge keel? I would look outside the boat to see if there any obvious c...

Re: Rust streak

Sadly a rust streak always means there is a bolt somewhere inside that has rusted! The only way to properly sort it is to start digging! Often bolts were itted with the heads inside and the nut below, if you dig out around the spot the rust starts hopefully you may find the bolt that is rusting. Yea...

Re: Scoter wild duck 19

Well Found James! I suspect you may also have gas aboard, so can I suggest a simple gas detector fitted that will protect you if there are any fuel or gas leaks! I have a diesel motor but use gas and have a gas detector... better safe than.... Send more pics in or your Restorers page when you do mor...

Re: Scoter wild duck 19

Hello James

See you are determined to go Stuart Turner! Hope it runs sweetly! Check there is no play in the flywheel end of the crankshaft to indicate worn bearing and thus duff crank case seal!

Good luck fitting it and making it safe!

Re: Scoter wild duck 19

Hello James, sorry no one has responded, but to be honest we had never heard of one ever being made in GRP so it was a very long shot finding anyone on here. I can only surmise she was made as a one off, either by someone in the GRP moulding business for their own use or by an enthuiastic amatuer. H...

Re: gh or eventide Yankee/Jib on a bowsprit

All those sail makers have been around since Noah, so have stood the test of time!

You pays your money and takes your choice.

If the sail is on a roller reefing, the additional foam in the luff is a good idea, will make it set better reefed.

Good luck,
John

Re: Barbican 33 Centre plate

Hello Buzzard, There is a case for doing away with it, but it will make turning in marinas and the like more difficult if you have not got the plate there to pivot around. Some owners have neatly got round this by installing a small bow thruster, then marinas etc a doddle. The later commercial build...
