Re: Careel Nationals and 50th Year Celebrations 22/23 Feb

Nah Trots, you've not missed great amounts of promotional material &/or advice as far as I'm concerned or aware of either. Look forward to seeing you Qld blokes at Wangi ! Btw, Rob & I will likely give the MPONR a miss this year now & probably sail the B2B before hanging up my Careel rac...

Re: Jib winches

Yes Pat, they are early C18 bakerlyte (spelling ?) type winches. If you want some later day Barlows in stainless for eg give me Don 0402 223133 a call as have a few in good condition sets. I use a different system on my own C18s & so have removed them when upgrading.

Thanks Max for the mention & steering Bill towards my/our (don't want to get into trouble off Robyn) C18's. I spoke with him last night & he's looking for something good & decent alright but, something to cruise with only. Yes, I can confirm that we have both Storm Mk3 & Monsoon Mk1 ...

Re: Regular dropping mast for bridges

Yes, of course that lowering & raising again of the stick can be simply handled utilising a couple of methods which come to mind on a C18 with the boom likely folded up in place &/or attached to mast.

Sky Mist is a credit to you Paul !!
She's a beautifully prepared & kept by you Mk3 example & well worth every cent at least of your asking price.

Re: Top End of the Myalls Cruise. 25th - 26th May 19.

Well, you just can't ever really beat the top of The Myalls can you or for that matter the whole of its system !! Surprisingly but, not surprisingly in some regards due to the Easter cruise, it was very quite with not many people or boats about at all apart from a few campers at Narainie & our f...

Re: Rudder question

I should've also said above that the swing rudder/s that I've left on the stern when transporting are not of the plain standard type BBQ plate. ie: they are larger & fold up far better & vertically than the standard thus also making them easier to tie or lash up securely against the stern. C...

Re: Rudder question

I'm definitely agreeing with Luka. Just make sure you have a retaining clip or split ring to stop the rudder from perhaps jumping off the gudgeon/pintle fittings & absolutely leave it on the transom suitably lashed & strapped up which takes only a few moments. I've never had an issue & I...

Re: rudder downhaul C18

Yep,, understood Ken. The jamming can be a real pain & issue especially if you happen to be in the wrong location or position at the time. It's not all bad news though of course if set up & kept adjusted right. My brother who used to own C18 Buhawi before myself made a fairly different style...
