Re: Typhoon Mainsail Outhaul.

Thank you Roger and Philip, I'll contact Selden re. Elysiums Kemp spar's and let you know how I get on. From what I've seen I think Philip is pretty close to the internal arrangement so it looks like an ends off job, as I'd also like to replace the outhaul slider at the same time. Anyone got any exp...

Typhoon Mainsail Outhaul.

Has anyone any knowledge of the internal boom mechanism which operates the above. The end that operates the outhaul is stainless steel wire while the end at the mast is rope. After some twenty plus years the rope is disgusting and I want to replace it. I read previously that one could pull the wire ...

Re: Typhoon Rudder

Just to wrap this up, had to drop the rudder as it was severely affected with osmosis after all and what a job that was. Aluminium, stainless and mild steel assembled with nothing between them, in the middle of the sugar scoop out of arms reach and with very resticted access. Eventually, managed to ...

Re: Typhoon Rudder

Hi Guys, Thanks for your replies. As a result I contacted Ed Dupois and he confirmed that the rudder is made of two separate mouldings assembled around the steelwork and encapsulated in GRP . This raises the question of exactly what are these mouldings made from and how are they assembled around the...

Typhoon Rudder

Does any one have any experience of the makeup of a typhoon rudder? I have noticed over the past few years that mine has developed lumps on both sides and have resolved to investigate these this winter and rectify if possible, doesn't look like osmosis as the lumps are far larger. Any help, drawings...

Re: Folding props

Thanks for your input and links. Very interesting but very expensive!! FYI my present engine is a Volvo 2003 which is 28hp,3 cylinder, revving to 3500 in theory. I've decided to go for a Beta engine and the nearest I could get to the Volvo was a 30hp 3 cyl. Which also revved to 3500 but decided to g...

Folding props

Has anyone out there any experience of two bladed folding props on a fin keel boat? How does it handle in a low speed manoeuvre? I've read somewhere that they can't be relied on to select a gear at low speed and as I've been recommended one for my re-engined Typhoon I'm anxious to get any info I can...

Morse engine control adjustment.

The gear lever/throttle lever on my Typhoon has become very notchy over the past few years and last season gave us several heart stopping moments when it refused to go into reverse without a good knock with the heel of my hand. As this entailed my running back to the controls in response to my wife'...

Re: Cockpit seating

Hi Graham I undertook this a couple of years back and found it very straight forward. I made cardboard templates of the original seating and sent this off to the chosen supplier. While the replacement panels were being made I removed the old panels and made good several deep scratches and holes. The...

Re: Sprung scarf joint and black marks on gunnell.

Thanks Guys, It's always good to know that someone else has been there, done that. The advice re removing the plugs is most useful, did you treat the corrosion in the holes prior to replacing plugs and were you able to seal around the bolt heads prior to replacing the plugs? Also where did you get t...

Sprung scarf joint and black marks on gunnell.

Has anyone experience of curing above. My Typhoon is suffering from this on the port side, and also from black marks weeping from the securing bolts down both sides. Unfortunately, many of these bolts terminate behind the saloon furniture, including those on the scarfed joint. Can one just remove th...
