Re: Land Camping on a Careel 18/22

I've decided to build a 4 step wooden ladder for the back. Nice long oversized hand rails, hooks onto the transom, see how it goes

Re: 'CAREELS in CANBERRA'.

We’ll be staying in Canberra for a week before the event and hopefully doing some exploring of the lake. After the race we will be travelling back to Bris, via Wagga, visiting the ‘lations. Be good to catch up with the Wagga boys and sail on their pond..

Re: Land Camping on a Careel 18/22

I’d like to re-invigorate this old thread; Travelling to Canberra for the NATS this year. Hoping to use the Mark III C18 as a land camping rig for the trip down.

Re: New member with questions...

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. If you are getting lots of weather helm, you may have too much power aft of the centre of resistance. That can be resolved with a reef in the main too. A jiffy reefing ...

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

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?
