Pulley Options

Postby Ivana » Thu Feb 22, 2007 11:13 am

It is most disturbing to see that another post (even though it is all about the queensland sailing fraternity) exceeding the number of posts of this record breaking post (don't worry if you don't understand this gibberish)

For the mechanically inclined here are some keel pulley options;

Ivana,
Prefer my winch, only has one pulley (sheave).
You should write all those numbers on CB case then each pulley will know how hard the others are working, they will soon recognize who the bludgers are. Could cause dissension amongst your pulleys, maybe its not a good idea.
Take it easy.

Similar situation when a flock of MTDs is trotting across the tundra in the familair Vee formation with the point MTD breaking wind and making it easier for the others. (Or is it that the other MTDs fan out into the Vee because the first MTD is breaking wind?) They soon realise if one MTD is not taking its fair share of the point work and bludging out on the wing. Things soon get nast when MTDs get angry.

Ian,
If I was an MTD I would prefer to be way back in the dust rather than behind a wind breaking leader, we all know what excessive exertion does to the nether regions.
The name Gobi comes from this, it is derived from Go By or pass the smelly bugger.

I think that last one would have done nicely for the unfinished Max Lexcen Winged Keel project. Ah well...

Anyone want a 12mm steel keel (NOT shaped) and partially covered by lead? It just needs the remaining lead to be slapped on, tidied up and then probably best to paint the whole thing in two pack. The thing doesn't really suit my current boat!

I can't believe this string is still not a sticky

This post reads like the total keel repair guide for any Careel enthusiast.

It needs to stay as a sticky Clayton!!!!

How many more days until the next Nationals??

The Queenslanders are already plotting their return.

Seeing as Bruce is going thru a keel moment, I thought it appropriate to re-enstate the longest post in Careel.com history.
