Hola Frank, how are you ? I hear you have fitted a ROCNA and are very happy with it. Which size have you chosen may I ask ?

Gday Albert,

Gday Albert,
Since I fitted it last October it' has been used in about 90 different anchorages between P Montt, P Williams and Punta Arenas. Set first time ever time.
Only hiccup was when it was - by necessity - on a fairly short scope in a place called Caleta Ferrari in TdF. A racha on the far side of 70 knots ( thats when it pegs the ammeter on the wind gen) saw us drag about 20 metres before taking up again. The only other boat in the anchorage, a 68 foot French boat ( ex global challenge?), dragged clean past us in the same gust so I'm not complaining.
Cheers
Frank

Hola Frank,
Independently I have been given very good reports of it and found your comment on a Rocna site, that is why I ask, as we have sister ships. I have a 45 lb plough which is good enough for balmy days and sandy bottoms. It is the rougher days with weedy bottoms that concern me. So I am getting a 45 pounder like yours for winter sailing.
Thanks. Nice to hear from you.
Saludos Cordiales.
Albert.

Hello ! :)

Firstly, I'm sorry for my very bad english language... :oops: We are french Westerly owners !

To complete the liste, I just wanted to say that Westerly Sealord n°2 formerly named "Lion's Tail" is now "Renaissance".
At present, it's based in France, in a port of the Mediterranean Sea (Sète).
We have a small blog on our boat Renaissance to tell our events of every day... http://voyage-de-renaissance.over-blog.com

I also wanted to say to you that it's very pleasant to find the others Westerly SD owners !!

If luckily, somebody speaks French, it's with pleasure that we can correspond more "easyly" lol...

Thanks to you :wink:

Right....This is what the above charming post in mangled English means:~

"We would be very pleased to meet you in the Mediteranean. Insofar as the sprayhood is concerned, many thanks for your kind offer. However we have to refit ourselves and that includes making up a new frame in stainless steel. Where are you in the United States ? Friendly Regards."...that's the gist of it...sort of... :D

Je ne suis pas moi meme aux Etats Unis. Le bateau est la. Je suis en Europe. Je pense de faire le voyage Transatlantique cet an, plus ou moins en Juin.

Translation:~

I myself am not in the USA. The boat is there. I am in Europe. I am considering doing the Transatlantic crossing more or less in June.

Hello Albert!
I am sorry for this bad answer ; I had suggested to my friend using the translator, and he made it but he didn't read again and verify ! :roll:
It's not really easy to express us correctly...

I wanted to ask you... Do you have pictures of your sailboat? Thank you.
We have already seen Frank's magnificent photos...
It really gives envy (?) to travel ! But it stays some more of works...

:D

Bonjour Christelle,

My Sealord is in America. I am sailing it to the Mediterranean in May this year. We will probably take videos during the crossing, which will be in one go, without stopping. So then you will be able to see pictures.

I know your boat is undergoing work. When all the work is finished you will have one of the best centre cockpit boats in the world. 42 were built. All are sailing. Very few go on sale at any time. That is the reason. :D

Re: Sealord Owners - Measuring Job Please.

Post by Albert » Wed Feb 24, 2010 9:59 pm

As my Sealord is not to hand, I have the problem of a weak teak grating in the cockpit that needs strengthening from underneath with strong mahogany strips. The most vulnerable grating is the first one you step onto when leaving the main hatch and entering the cockpit, because it is the longest.(there are three).

I have secured a well seasoned honduras mahogany plank that I have already cut into suitably wide and thick strips to do the job. I have to send them air freight to the US and I would like to fit them in a box together with spare parts.,

I need to know what the length of the underside of this grating is, that is, the length of the cavity under the grating to be more exact.

Sealords and Oceanlords have identical gratings.

May I ask any owner member when you have a chance to measure the underside lengthways only and post the result, in inches please, or contact me by PM.

Many Thanks in Advance.Albert

Albert,

Probably a bit late and not sure exactly what dimension you are after, but I will be on my boat in the next 2 weeks and can measure then.

If you want to e mail me a sketch of the dimension you are after my e mail is sharkstoothchris@yahoo.co.uk if it helps.

Chris

Thanks Chris. I will board her on Wed 12th. Sailing her from the US to Gibraltar in one pull. The grating matter has been resolved. Your offer much appreciated nonetheless.
