Re: Free Garmin GA29 GPS Antenna

I should have posted before. I gave this antenna to PaulS. Hope he's put it to good use as I received another request from an interested TSPer.

Alko Sensa Brakes Parts

Hi everyone, I managed to lose the brake fluid cap for my Sensa Brake actuator. I made contact with Alko and I found it really depends who you are fortunate to get on the line, because they really do not want to speak with the end user. One was so short as to simply connect me to voice mail message ...

Re: Noobie - saying Hi

This is a video shot by my then 9 year old grand daughter. I think you'll get the idea of what a Careel looks like during a cruise. PS: when buying a boat it is far more value to buy a known and respected design rather than a boat that is perhaps a one off issue. Video below: https://youtu.be/kjocvg...

Re: Noobie - saying Hi

I have been thinking about this for a little bit. One thing that you must keep in mind is "What is it that I want to buy a sail craft for." This is an important question. If the answer is to sail as fast as possible, perhaps win a race or two then clearly a fast RL24 may fit the bill for you. A hart...

Re: Noobie - saying Hi

I think the above comment about the RedWitch is very valid. They are a stable deep water yacht, but I would hardly call them trailable due to the fixed keel situation. The comment about the RL for price are valid too, but an RL is a racing dinghy in the form of a TS, it has a cabin. If you want spee...

Hugh the position of the compass must be away from any metal or magnetic interference. Near a radio will not be good as the radio body usually contains many metal parts.

Re: What should I do about my unreliable powerwinch?

The one negative that I have with my Super Winch 5000 (now perhaps 16 years old) is that I do not have a remote control. I can fashion one with a little imagination using appropriate strings, (Noelexian has done this) but I must say that it has never been a real issue, so i have not made one. I simp...
