Anchor winch woes

During last season my Quick anchor winch became temperamental and needed the odd tap with a hammer or winch handle to encourage it into life. I assumed it was worn or sticking brushes like the Lucas starter motors of my youth. Yesterday, I spent a silly amount of time extricating it from the boat an...

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

Rather than fill the gap would the application of heat (hot air gun?) soften the pipe enough for the jubilee clip to do its job?

Re: Review of 2018

The hordes that crowded out the Doric in December were held enthralled as Dave regaled us with his tale. Film rights must be taken up soon.

Will there be a wake?

Along with the rest of you I received Nick's threat of closure today. Not that his dates make any sense - how pissed was he? - but the gist is probably one month to demonstrate how much we need these fora (and, by association, him). The idea that 4 of us would have no way of arranging a drink at yul...

Re: Sweeps/long oars

Having carted 2 oars from a rowing eight and a 14' long yuloh around SIPR on a few occasions (good for 2+kts) + trying to tow or push Marisca with an Avon Redcrest (doesn't register on the log or GPS) I reached the conclusion that the anchor was the best solution.

Re: Drinks

Sorry to interrupt the Faroes charts discussion but ....... The drink date plebiscite has had an underwhelming response but the conclusion could be that on Monday 10th, 4 people might turn up. Is that it? Can Pagoda book his away-day, off peak, train brief yet? Will anyone make a decision? Is the be...
