Re: C22 trailer wheel roller system

With the wheelbarrow wheels? Yes. I think that was a standard setup for C22s. The difference is that on my trailer the previous owner had them filled with foam so there's no need to inflate them. You should be able to get that done at some tyre places. It makes the tyre really tough.

Re: When to switch from regular jib to storm jib

There's an old saying along the lines that if you're wondering whether it's time to reef then it's time to reef. :D

Re: C22 trailer wheel roller system

Hi Mal,

Those wheelbarrow wheels are rated to a maximum load when they are at maximum pressure. The C22 would run pretty close to that maximum load so I reckon they need to be inflated to maximum pressure. If they don't sit right then just adjust the heights until they do.

Re: C22 trailer wheel roller system

I would inflate to maximum pressure because those wheels take a lot of load. Adjust the height of the others if needs be.

Re: C22 rubrail repair

The old master Vern does these kinds of repairs on C18s by "scarfing in". He cuts out the damaged bit of teak and cuts a new bit to fit in as a tight fit. He then sets about with tools and sandpaper shaping the new bit to the same profile as the surrounding timber. It's hard to see the rep...

Re: careel18#266:- used to be "Merloin" now "Sea-Esta"

I wanted to privately message any owners on Goldy. What's Goldy? Can I get an admin to teach me how to use a forum ? You seem to be managing it ok. I am Bob Miller and need help with the genoa furler. Any wind above 15 knots always unfurls it.. Yeah, they all do that. The C18 furler isn't really wh...

Re: 2.0 Litre Petrol Turbo to tow Careel 18??

Luka,

I could recommend the Mitsubishi Challenger - tows a C22 so should handle a C18 no worries. But they don't make them any more!

Re: For sale C18 Mark 3 n.o 453

What about a price? What gear does it come with? Are you including the mooring (unlikely that can be swapped in Sydney)? Photos? It'd be hard not to waste your time if you don't give people the information they need to make some kind of reasonable assessment of the boat before coming out to see it.

Re: Damaged Fibreglass Repair

Not really fibreglass repairs but I did get these guys to respray one side of my hull quite a few years ago after a trailer problem put a big gouge down the length of it. They were good, did a great job. Ever since then I keep hoping something will happen to the other side so I can get that respraye...

C22(S?) "Palomino" for sale in NT

Looks like a short cabin although there's few photos at the moment. Listed on Gumtree in Darwin for $5,000 with an unregistered trailer. The seller says there's better photos to come so hopefully that'll allow a better identification once that happens. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/ludmilla/sail-b...

Hi Ben, I reckon it'd be a sad day if we couldn't discuss such things on what should be a forum for discussing things. As for your suggestion, I'm sure it's been suggested before and resisted so far. But as numbers dwindle, who knows? If you're able to go to the upcoming AGM that could be a good sug...

Hi Ed, Yeah, there's a time limit for editing of your posts. Can't remember what it is off hand but it's probably one or two days. Anyway, using my super moderator powers, I have made that change for you so it now reads VHF. And VHF is good ... if I was installing a radio in my boat these days, I'd ...
