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

    It's bigger than it looks in the photos

    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!

    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.

    Fellow G&L owners and GALA members - I would like to remind you again about our position on subscriptions.

    There aren't any!

    We have enough in the pot to keep us going for the foreseeable future (web site fees, etc) but I am still receiving some subscriptions paid by standing...

    My 28 was built in 2002 (I think - memory getting a bit blurred these days) and certainly has a CE builder's plate. On mine, it is a fairly large oval brass plate mounted high on a part-bulkhead, port side, a little way in from the companionway. But given that there aren't two boats the same, I...
