  1. Last week
  2. Season closer - Lake Burrumbeet

    Agree on the Ballarat winters - way too cold for Maricat sailing.
  3. Here's hoping that the yardsticks get adjusted accordingly.
  4. Tiller grip

    For those who have too much money, the Arriba Sticks are heavy but very tough for telescoping extensions - and very expensive... I still have one - and may go back to it for heavy-weather sailing. I believe The Life Aquatic in Mona Vale carry them... Right now I'm using a Ronstan Battle Stick - but they're fragile - and I agree the synthetic plastic 'knuckles' are suspect in heavy weather.. CST Composites do non-telescoping sticks - very highly recommended - Google them. PP

  8. NACRA 4.5 - for sale 568

    Where is it?
  9. Tiller grip

    My orange conduit tiller is grippy enough so far, but if I needed more grip I'd go straight for the road bike bar tape (ie the stuff we wrap around the handle bar of drop-bar bicycles). They put cork flecks in the sponge rubber stuff for grip when wet. Adhesive backed; just overlap by half a width as you wind it on. Finish the end with electrical tape. I get cheap crappy cork tape for about $2 per two rolls from eBay. Does just as good as the brand name stuff that people pay $50 for. I redid the bar of my lawnmower with bike tape too... much more comfortable.
  10. Winter has landed in Ballarat, and I won't be sailing for a few months now. For those who don't know Ballarat, we have arguably the worst weather in Australia... weeks on end that don't reach double figures but don't freeze either. Just wet and miserable. *sigh*. Anywho, I rugged up in cold/wet weather cycling gear and took my cat out a few weeks ago for a final sail before packing up for the winter. Also strapped my new not-goPro to the boom for a try. Turned out to be nearly ideal conditions for me. Enjoy! I know I'll be looking back on this for inspiration over the next few months. Tim
  11. Tiller Cross Arm

    Last Add - Research is showing the part I bought is likely for the newer boats AND parts for the older boats do not exist. Therefore, anyone know the correct length and inner diameter for the 2006 F18 tiller cross arm tube?  I may have to buy a piece of aluminum tubing and make one. Thanks again for any assistance.
  12. Tiller Cross Arm

    Add - the boat is a 2006 F18.    
  13. Purchased a tiller cross arm part to replace one broken by previous owner.  Purchased Nacra replacement part form a Nacra parts dealer and part is supposed to fit any F18 but is not long enough and compared to another boat on the beach is short by about 10 cm.  Big problem. Does anyone know if Nacra made two different length tiller cross arms? The one I bought is 181.5 cm for the tube portion (not counting the rubber end pieces) and the one I measured on another boat measured 192.5. Thanks in advance for any input.
