Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

I was looking for a thumbs-up among the emojis, but a lot of them have something to do with being dumb. Anyway, carry on, then. How's the Helms coming? I myself have volunteered to help an owner of a new-to-him Ericson 27 with a ton of rather alarming problems. None are irresolvable, but he's over h...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Jaysen,
What was the design of the boat you were going to enter that race with, and what is the status of that race?

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Sounds good.
What is "full spreader sun?"
You have an anchor light at the top of the mast?

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

One sentence is a little vague there. "The white stern light must cover 135 degrees and be visible for 2 nautical miles, or you can substitute one 360-degree all-around white light." This is in addition to sidelights, not in lieu of them, unless you're under 7 meters, approximately 23 feet...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

The tri-color from west marine displays running lights and anchor light and can be used on sailboats less than 20 meters. That's typical, and what I had, except mine also had a strobe for emergencies. The tri-color cannot be legally displayed in conjunction with a steaming light, because that would ...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Please give me a reference for that. I don't see it anywhere, and since I teach this stuff, if there is a new reg I need to know about it. Unless I misunderstand you or something, I really don't think the list you gave of steaming, spreader, and anchor lights are combinable. You should give me a lin...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Why do you want a masthead tri-color? Not saying it's a bad idea, just wondering.

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

$1250 doesn't sound like too much, if the headsail has a foam luff and UV cover. (I'm assuming roller furling.) These add some $$. Racers will spend $10,000 annually on sails. I'm not a racer, or at least one that will invest that kind of dough. It depends on what you want, but with respect, I think...
