Have you not looked at the sailing directions? There are rocks all over.


I have naturally assumed the old buffer had clipped the Cleit. You live and learn.

I usually aim for the Cleit.....

Re: Identify my windlass.

From your introduction I'm guessing you're from the southern parts of the Empire.

Tried here?

Re: Avy-J - the story so far.

Just out of interest, do you need a special insurance policy to let the boat out as an airbnb?

Re: Jerryca sh

Whether two up or solo you are going to need an auto helm or self steering gear. I don't know your previous history but have talked to previous entrants who's autohelm (brand new and fitted in Falmouth by Raymarine) was totally hopeless. Engineer in Azores tried to fix for return journey but failed....

Re: Brokers- perhaps not a total waste of time after all

I would be happy with both the Westerly or the Moody. For me a no-brainier would be a tired or original teak deck.

Replacement on either would be in the region of £20k or £19k if you did it yourself.

Enjoy the boat and go sailing whichever one you choose.

Re: Suitable sealant for diesel filler hose/tank joint.

I would renew the hose. A new replacement hose will compress better and remove the need for sealant.

Re: SWR meter

I replaced all the cabling and fitted a Metz antenna last year. It's odd when listening to people's voices coming out the speaker when for many years it was little more than silence.

I still wouldn't know, however if it was RX or TX correctly.

Re: Raising the Nancy Glen

I'm not sure what the families have been told to expect. If / when the Nancy Glen is raised there wont be much left of the bodies - it being a prawn boat and there being prawns in the hold.
