Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Lee, have you set up the Lonestar with an all rope rode, or a combination of chain rode and rope warp?

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks Lee, Jaysen and Fuzz. The timing for reducing the pressure of deadlines couldn't have come at a better time. Tomorrow through to Tuesday nearly 20 national and international marine scientists are coming to Noosa to review and make recommendations on next steps for our estuary-wide Bring Back ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Many thanks for your most thoughtful suggestion Lee. It's nice that it could work for Jaysen. And it sure as hell works for me! :D As the self inflicted deadline of the meet has been getting ever closer, the pressure of boat building has been mounting in direct proportion to boat building pleasure d...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I am watching and waiting for what you do for the anchor. And there is a better than even chance I will copy you without the least little bit of shame :wink: Fuzz, if you're resisting the siren songs, as I am, of an electric windlass on a smallish boat like yours or mine, I suspect we'll end up wit...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

After much procrastination over recent months, this afternoon I removed a number of mechanical connections and electrical components and electrical connections installed for the rat rod test run nearly six months ago. It was necessary to remove them, to pave the way to epoxy or epoxy-glass seal up a...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks for the support OrangeQuest, poleposition, Jaysen and Peter. It's appreciated. I may have found an off-the-shelf bow roller that will do the job. The nearest distributor is about an hour's drive away, and I'll be heading that way in the next week or so. I'll take the Manson Supreme anchor wit...
