Re: The eternal leak

For anyone still interested I think I've discovered the source of the leak it turns out that one of the seacocks is letting in water even when it's closed. The fitting on the pipe that is connected to the seacock wasn't tightened fully and was letting this water in. Solved I think!!! Sent from my SM...

To cut or not to cut!

This is the saloon floor of my centaur. I assume on other centaurs you are able to access the bilges from where it has been fiberglassed over on my boat . Is there any reason I should reopen this or is it best left alone. Also can anyone tell me what the circles which have been filled in with brown ...

Re: Installing stack pack and lazy jacks on Centaur roller boom

I installed lazy jacks on my centaur. Don't know what pulleys are already on ur mast but there wasn't any on mine so i had to go up and rivet a block either side of the mast. I placed these well above the spreader. i don't have a stack pack so I just riveted 3 eyes either side of the boom and ran li...

Re: lifelines

Didn't see your post Wolfgang thats exactly what I'm looking for. I wouldn't be too confident on the old diy front that's why I was asking about kits and if not a kit what exact parts would I need

Re: lifelines

Thanks For the reply Chris. I've had a look for both Jacklines and Jackstays but they aren't what I'm looking. I need to replace the steel wire which runs from bow to stern through tbe stanchions. I always thought they were called lifelines but I'm probably wrong
