Main Message Board / Postage to Australia
« on: October 18, 2013, 06:24:43 PM »
Guys
I have contacted Catalina Direct to purchase a replacement Head sink flexible hose. They are quoting either $64.30 for USPS or $159.73 for UPS for postage to Sydney Australia. I feel this is a tad costly. The hose is under $50.00.
Would one of you ever helpful people be able to get a quote for the postage and I could PayPal you the money after I have purchased the item and sent it to your local address.
Ours has a steady leak under pressure.
I have scoured plumbing suppliers here but our fittings are totally different.
Thanx in advance

Just got up at 6am to watch the 2nd day of the AC. Watched yesterdays race on You Tube to catch up.
Wow what fantastic racing, and the speed is incredible. Up to 43+ kts. Gee a tad quicker than Moonshadow.
Looking forward to watching more.

Main Message Board / Internal plastic Lewmar portlight trims
« on: August 13, 2012, 11:54:47 PM »
Has anyone recently found a source for these?
Ours have become brittle.
I am wondering if I could make something out of 18mm ply and spraying white.
Or even router some plastic board.
Any other thoughts.

Thanx in advance

Main Message Board / Double ended mainsheet
« on: October 31, 2011, 03:32:43 AM »
I am new to owning, and this is my first major question.
We (a share boat) are looking into extending the end of he mainsheet that normally finishes at the end of the boom to the floor of the cockpit or more likely through 2 fixings, one in each side of the cockpit walls with a double block with cam cleats set in the centre of the cockpit with rope/cord with the free end easily controlled from the wheel with the original end passed threw a new triple clutch on the starboard side to be jammed when required or free to pull on or winch. This setup is for solo sailing.
My main question is strength in the cockpit. Would the cockpit walls, maybe with some large aluminium angle strengthening behind (inside the port lazarette and inside the stern stateroom.
Any thoughts from out there

cheers
Tony
