Re: Seized centre board

That's the thing isn't it, what's causing the seizure ? Rust can cause swelling for example. I've seen a couple of CBs stuck over the years but, nothing that couldn't be first cleaned out at least a bit & then worked free even using some cooking oil or similar plus the use of a pursuader with ha...

Re: 'CAREELS in CANBERRA'.

Yes Ben,, racing can be very enjoyable & great fun also exhilarating & thrilling. It teaches & gives you so greater an understanding of sailing & controlling that boat. Like everything it can have its moments too of course, there are ups & downs. As said to you the best thing for...

Re: 'CAREELS in CANBERRA'.

Ben, you'll be well equiped for Canberra if you have everything that is normally required & on the Careel list.

Bob there are plenty of phone contact details in Contacts & Officials, take your pick for assistance if required.
Certainly if it best suits you some there are from Qld, I suspect you're from Gold Coast.

Re: "TOP END of the MYALLS CRUISE" 19th-20th May 2018.

Well the w/end which was full of great weather condition has come & gone but, it has left us somewhat reinvigorated after a marvellous time was had. Rob & I work to hard & don't get out to enjoy our boat near enough however, we certainly enjoyed the company of some very decent people &am...

Re: Replacement Cushions for C18

Fella's over the period of time & of doing up a few boats I've simply found it easy to either visit an upholsterer who specialises in car & marine works. He'll have the high density foam & size you require whether your needs are for interior or cockpit seating. He'll more than likely als...

Re: Bay to Bay 5-6th May 2018

Onya John. Yes,, it all sounds as though the second half of the Sunday got very exciting. My brother Lloyd & I have done some pretty big wave surfing in the event in that same Big W area back in I believe 08'-09' with "Buhawi" (which now resides in Townsville after being sailed there f...

Re: 'CAREELS in CANBERRA'.

It's never to early to start preparing boats & trialling all equip for an event. Then there's holidays & time off work to organise plus accommodation if required & you're not camping out on boat. We'd like to see a huge turn out at LBG & another big reason for the move to the Nov. da...

Wow,,Cookie told me & I've heard B2B was eventful ! All Careels home ok (Knuckles 1st) but, other boat classes reported capped &/or broken gear plus masts. One boat lost to the deep for now & its being looked for !

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

Well Davie,, thanks for the kind words. I/we (we meaning, good wife Rob) have in the past always cared for any C18 that have come our way whether purchased outright or that of someone who has required assistance in some form or another. It's a funny thing but, we've ended up with a situation current...
