• Hi Chris,

    I’ve not sailed for a few years now and Bramble has been tucked up in storage, being crewless myself it might be worth touching base to see if we can both get on the water?

    Regards Peter

  • Rain and Sun, excellent quality & choice of materials. Bought my second cover last year after my original finally reached the end of its days. Didn’t bother to look elsewhere, just went straight back to Rain & Sun. Bought a light grey rather than blue, hopefully will avoid the effects of UV longer.

    I assumed there would be a private message function but there’s not, hey ho 🙁

  • PeterW3035 replied to the topic Posting photos in the forum Website 3 years, 9 months ago

    Just being able to post one would be good, I’m surprised there seems to be no “how to post photos” instructions on the forum?

    I’ve emailed a copy of John Mellors photo of his docking arms that he emailed to me in the hope it can be posted to the original thread.

    Thanks

  • Performance is affected far less than tying a fender or plastic container to the mast head :-0

  • Can anyone enlighten me as to how you post photos? Clicking the photo icon on a new message isn’t clear what is needed, can you upload from your PC or only from a photo hosting website?

    Thanks Swiebrtje, the WIT is a great source of info.

    That’s interesting, on a fairly steep slipway at my sailing club docking arms would be a benefit. Certainly my expectation is that single handing they will be invaluable. I’ve sailed on the Helford a couple of times and will bear that in mind if I’m ever in Cornwall,

    Thanks for the offer, Peter

    I’m planning to trail and sail next year rather than being club based and plan to upgrade my trailing & launching kit. Does anyone have any photos of the following:

    Trolley docking arms (as I may be recovering single handed)

    Trailer lighting board & mast support for transome

    I can always cobble something together but it would be good to see any…[Read more]

    Once you’ve narrowed down the choice of canvas try Kayospruce in Fareham. They are a trade supplier but do sell to the public, they carry a huge range of canvas and other nautical fabrics. They have always been very helpful when I have called in.

     

  • PeterW3035 replied to the topic Fitting Rowlocks in the forum Cruising 4 years ago

    Another couple of thoughts/options:

    Raise the rowlock in the hole by fixing a packer under the neck of the rowlock. Mine are raised by probably 25mm and this doesn’t give your crew an uncomfortable seat.

    My rowlocks are kept below deck held in a short length of garden hose fixed to the side of each thwart, secured with a line of course.

  • Anyone here attending? Have just found a good local B&B and filled in my forms, looking forward to meeting up with fellow Wayfarers.

    From past experience it’s a great informative and social weekend.

    It would be interesting for there to be a response, from my own point of view I don’t find this new format easy to use. To the extent that I dip in far less than I used to. It seems strange that a third or more of the screen is taken up with the login status, forth coming events and blank space?

    Am I missing a trick? is there an easier way of…[Read more]

    My sons at Plymouth Uni and I’ve looked out over the Sound several times thinking it looked a great cruising ground.

    Certainly a nice wee film, what camera are you using? How did you fix it to the end of the boom?
