Re: Weighing a large boat

Are you running the 4 scales simultaneously? Assuming that there is a measurement error, it seems that the BH5 star is likely "out of plane" with the other measure points. The total weight would still be accurate but the distribution of weight would be off (you would have a heavy spot). I'...

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

Stay with the 48v EDrive. The error in this case is simple and not indicative of a real design flaw. You can add a low voltage shutoff (I can design one if needed) to basically disconnect the battery bank if it drops below a specific voltage. This would prevent recurrence for the same causal. That’s...

Happy birthday!

May you feet never need shoes.

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Happy Birthday Jaysen!!! You guys have a great weekend!!! Jeff Thanks Jeff. My birthday celebration involves ripping out the main bathroom and remembering why I have a career in IT and not construction. I’m hoping to find a few minutes to pass out under the dining room table but I assume the dog wi...

Thank you sir! My in laws disagree with you. Luckily my wife calls them names regularly and agrees with you. I’ll take that as the definitive answer. 😜

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Happy birthday Jaysen! :D Any progress on the sail repair? Thanks GB! The machine is going to be here Tuesday. Hopefully we will get the luff sewn and sails in the boat that weekend! The universe and I have a hate/hate relationship so I expect my plan to be undermined. But I’m still excited to be s...

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

can you define "destroy" a bit more clearly? I ask, because if it is just that the batts are beyond salvage, then it shouldn't me more than swapping out the packs. Given the masterpieces of floatation that you've created, I'm pretty sure you can loosen then tighten a nut with adequacy. :D

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

Tape all the threads like you would any other perm low-ish pressure hydraulic system fittings. I just had to rip apart a mess someone made using 4200. I don’t recommend that if you don’t want to buy all the parts again. Im fighting with a seastar helm as well. Something is leaking but I can’t find i...

Re: Sea Ox Rebuild

Give Jeff at Boat Builder Central a call. He has a guy he works with. Made a tank for me that has been fantastic. Mine is small compared to what you need but the work was amazing.
