    Plan is to sand down the paint that is curently on it. then glass using polyester resin I have a barrel of it already. Then paint it with several coats of non slip paint. As it is for water proof not strenght then de laminating should not be too much of a problem. I hope

    Graham,

    What's the deck/cabin top finish at the moment? Not sure how relevant it is but my first response would be to ask if you are planning to use polyester or epoxy. I looked at a few second-hand boats before I decided to buy new, and decks with the glass layer delaminating weren't...

    When you have finished with them any chance of posting them on?

    The old shed didn't really look big enough either!

    It's bigger than it looks in the photos

  • Posted by Brian Neale

    Looks about big enough to build a 28?

    I find that bungee on the tiller instead of lashing works well.

    Also, wrapping the peak halyard around and around the mast will stop any noise and wear.

    Rudder hangings are the biggest problem on my 28. I can frap halyards away from the mast, and generally lash down/wedge just about everything else. But my usual tiller lashing which goes side-to-side between backstay fixings doesn't take out all the play, and I end up with a really tight lashing...

    I would like to draw to your attention an amazing little tide programme. But of course you may have known about it for years!

    Good luck with it - I'm not sure how I would connect to an alternator! Mine is a typical modern type with internal regulator, unlike the old ones with external regulator, and I can't remember whether there is a warning light connection. I did take mine off a while back to modify for an...

    i have looked at amazement at the spelling in some adverts on Ebay.  I have just re read my reply to you and my face is red. I plead being up at 4am this morning!

  • Posted by Ron Arnold

    Thank you for your response. I have looked again at the unit and you might well be right. Two terminals are really terminals and the other two are questionable. There are securing nuts and bolts to hold the thing together though.

    The two wires leave the oil pressure sender along with the...

    Ron, seeing as no-one else has commented I shall jump in with a bit of inspired guesswork...

    The hour counter itself first of all. Are you sure that there are four terminals? This seems very unlikely but I can imagine a black plastic case with two hex nuts holding the case on to the works...

    for what it is worth....i will provide the measurements of my sails, but I know they differ from the others.

    Look at the gallery and you will see that they are all slightly different. I would say that it is essential to measure your own boat and not take mine or others dims.
