Re: Linking the anode to the Propeller Shaft

Since fitting the self designed anode connector, to date it is working after a year in the water, no sign of any pitting to the prop or shaft.

Solar Panel Regulator Fitting Recomendations

I am in the process of refitting the Solar Panel to our Corsair and would like some recomendations: Should I fit a regulator that only connects to the house battery? Fit the regulator through the BEP Switching system that only connects to the battery if the BEP House switch is ON? Fit a switch that ...

Genoa Traveller Rails - Corsair II - Warning

Yesterday after a really good sail on our Corsair II, in which the winds in Wellington NZ harbour moved from a gentle 15 - 20km to 40 + the through hull fitting that holds the block that enables you to roller reef broke, looks as if the fitting had been going to do this for a number of years by the ...

Re: Rewiring an Oceanranger

Sorry, just checked my switch details they are CSP6-PTC - they have fuses mounted internally and as they are solid state they reset automatically..

Re: Rewiring an Oceanranger

Rewiring is reasonably simple as previous replies indicate, agree with using tinned cable. Good idea to replace the entire switchboard with new. I used 5 BEP CSP6 units (Corsair II) combined with a board I made up with LED's showing navigation lights cofiguration for anchor, motoring and sail, not a...

Re: anodes

I resolved this problem on our Corsair, the propeller and the shaft are linked to the annode via a device that I made as the McDuff system could not be fitted ( my post May 2012). On examination of the fixing, the MGDuff product was going to be difficult to fix. I have made an arm out of aluminium w...

Re: Drawings Needed for Fulmar 33 Scoop Transom

I think maybe that you may have to work it out for yourself, I have had the same question as yours except ours is a Corsair (question posted in 2010.) As an interim measure, I made a folding stern step, which although not very glamerous, works well. I am intending making a mould, and fabricate one o...

Re: Holding Tank for Corsair II

Thanks, I had a tank fabricated out of plastic with all the inlet and outlets incorporated to my specs.
The size and shape is about the same as you described.
I made a mock-up out of Coreflute to make sure it would fit and importantly be able to be fitted into place.
