Re: When to switch from regular jib to storm jib

I would think about shortening sail for anything above 15 kts. A balanced rig and not overpowered is much more comfortable sailing.

Replacement Cushions for C18

I’m needing to replace the cushions in my Careel 18.

Are there any recommendations on who can do this work or if someone has done this recently, any lessons to learn and rough cost?

Cheers

Dave

Re: C18 Keel winch.

You could try conversion to a pulley system. At this thread are a few options - hopefully this link takes you to the right page (if not its page 7) http://www.careel.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1167&start=90 Also there is a post somewhere around here that shows you how to post photos, you...

Re: "My Mini Stable of C18 For Sale".

What’s going on here Don?

Looks like a clearance sale. Is there a four for the price of three deal?

I know these boats will all be in top Nic under your care Don. A great buy to be had,.

But surely you will keep the famous Mark III?

Re: careel eighteen centreboard

Hi there, it looks like you have a non standard keel winch arrangement for a careel. The standard arrangement for a mark 1 or Mark 2 is to have a pulley system or winch where the cable attaches to the top back of the centreboard (yes the top) and pulls the top back towards the compression past that ...
