We have elected to stay in this year with heat and dehumidifier, the question I have is, do I remove the sails etc to reduce windage leaveing the boat unsailable, or do I leave the sails on and the boat effectivly in commision?

IMHO you should remove an "e" from leaveing.

Thats wee jamesie you've just apologised to - the same wee fat four-eyed fekker who is only mildly coherent on paper - as distinct from in the flesh where ye cannae tell a word he says.
If I was you I'd shame him into an apology and retraction of his post by mentioning your mild dyslexia

The good people at Dunstaffnage marina have saved us all the agonising over this question; they've broken the travel hoist big time so if you're not out now you may still be afloat for Hogmanay. Or they might fix it before then...

Hmm, I'd heard it was to be a couple of weeks and thought that a surprisingly long time, even for a marina. Aren't travels hoists relatively simple bits of kit?

I trust the efficient management at Dunstaffnage will have things firmly under control ... infact, I'm sure I saw Euan with a pair of Hydraulic Oil soaked coveralls on and a 2 1/4" spanner in his hand. No, hold on, that was a chequed blazer he had on and a glass of Chablais.................

Depends on what has failed. Was it the raising/lowering function or the drive?
If I remember correctly, it was a hydraulic drive (and brakes) at the front 2 wheels and a pair of hydraulic rams to a hinged upper platform.
The hydraulic power unit, I presume, was powered by a diesel.
Obviously the problem can't be as simple as burst hoses as that would take 15 minutes to replace a hose (30 mins to make one up).
Diesel Engine failed? (result, no power to drive hydraulic pumps).If it's something major like a sheared crank shaft, surely it wouldn't be difficult to change out the whole unit (with minor mods) for a similar powered unit.

Hyd. pump failure? Worn swash plates/ shattered swash plates? Casing failure on the pump? Scary and potentially lethal - power of hydraulics never ceases to amaze me. Steel will give before fluid will.

Hydraulic ram failure? Seals - no big deal. Bent ram? A little more serious. a lot more expensive. Sheared hinge pins - again, potentiallly lethal.

Hydraulic drive failure? Not familiar with Hydraulic drive systems but the beauty of the system is infinite variabilty of power without the need for a gearbox. Basically, think pump in reverse.

As ever, spares availabilty will probably be the major influence in the time it will take to repair.

Ofcourse, if it is a structural failure in the body of the hoist itself, that's a whole different can of worms.
