Re: Jib winches

Is that carved out of timber? Whatever it is, it isn't standard. Most of our boats were fitted with Barlow or Barient winches because that's what was around back in the day. Both have long since closed. I've seen winches like that on old boats but there's a handle underneath that capstan that can't ...

Re: Jib winches

Slotted screw head? What?

I think a photo might help explain what is going on with your boat. A winch without a handle is pretty much useless. It's a turning block not a winch. Can you post a photo?

Re: Jib winches

Pretty much any winch handle should fit the winch. Although I found the floating winch handles don't really fit winch handle pockets very well.

Re: C22 autopilot installation

Drifter, given you've already got the autopilot and it's installed, why not try it and see? Worst case scenario is that you end up with a flat battery and you have to hand steer. You could ask questions and get a stack of answers but there's no guarantee any of them will apply to your setup. And in ...

Re: WANTED TO BUY: Careel 18

Bill, Give Don a call. I think he still has 2 C18s for sale. I haven't seen "Aja" but "Storm" is a lovely boat and I know Don does wonders refurbishing the boats he's had. Have a look through the following thread for more info and contact details: http://www.careel.com/forum/view...

Re: Rudder gudgeons for heavy swing rudder (C243)

I'm not going to be much help here but I know at one stage that I went seriously looking for new rudder gudgeons and pintles without much luck. Mind you, my rudder is a non-standard custom made job so not really applicable.

Re: Boat cover.

Two years is not too bad for a tarp. I tried a lightweight cheapie once and barely got a year out of it. Yer gets what yer pays fer I guess. My tarps always end up tearing at the pressure point where they stretch over the mast spreaders. This current tarp I finally woke up and used (good) bits of th...

Re: Rudder for C18

You could try Yacht Works, manufacturers of Castle yachts. They've adapted their rudder to a couple of Careels. Seems the Castle 550 rudder is the go for a C18. There's some discussion of it in this old thread:

Re: REPLACING HALYARD

Sorry, I've just come on to this thread! Can I just say that as far as halyards are concerned, don't forget that at some point you may need to wrangle a halyard by hand in a stiff breeze. When that happens you don't want a thin bit of string that'll be hard to grip and that'll cut into your hands. S...
