Re: Hobie 16

Bill,

We have emailed in the past. I live in Oahu. I own a SC20 I restored and just picked up a ARC22. It's been too windy for the ARC22 lately. I have only sailed it twice since bringing it over a couple of months ago.

Re: Hobie 16

Bill,

Standing by!

I was just visiting in Naples and Boca Raton. I was wondering if you lived near and wanted to go sailing.

Re: Adjustable Outhaul On Mainsail

I never really thought about that either when I sailed monohulls for fun. It took me bombing around the bay on my Supercat wondering why the wind direction was always changing no matter which direction I was going to figure that out. I can't believe I had never thought of that prior.

Re: Adjustable Outhaul On Mainsail

Thanks Bill for that info. I had once asked Tom why he did not have an adjustable outhaul.

Re: SC19 Rework

Looking good! What's with the outer starboard hull? is that leftover tape? or did it peel the paint off when you took off the tape?

Give me the material and the size and I can turn it for you.

Re: Sloppy tiller crossbar connection

I think there is enough room to bore it out. I don't think you would compromise the strength of it. I assume you use the plastic pins? You can always turn slightly larger pins.

Re: Sloppy tiller crossbar connection

When it comes to the sloppy pintles, I have thought about boring out the gudgeons to a slightly larger size and use a larger plastic rod for a pintle. I have a mill and lathe so I have considered it but mine are not yet loose enough for me to really worry about it.

Re: Yet another weather helm problem....

Craig,
I must have missed your post regarding shimming the upper gudgeon, how thick was your gasket? Great idea!

Re: Bill Roberts!! Old Hull ID Numbers

Some of you with older boats like mine might want to read this. Sounds like I am not the only one that will have to deal with this. I have been corresponding with the USCG regarding the request to change my hull numbers. Start from the bottom. Sounds perfect. Make sure that you keep the state's lett...
