  1. Krissy clean the lanox out of sail track with boiling water and use a pencil folded in a rag as a pull through repeat as necessary before applying silicone also any corrosion or damage can be cleaned using pencil and sandpaper trick when all is good step mast on cat but leave shrouds a bit floppy = straight mast till sail is up then tension rig
  2. Hi Krissy  lanox contains wool grease that is particularly sticky so not the best lube for this application - silicon spray suggested also try raising sail on a loose rig ( before tensioning) cheers
  3. Still available price drop to $450
  4. Yet another newbie advice thread

    Nacra 4.5 would be perfect for you with a great handicap as well as extremely versatile!!!
  5. Roller reef code 0 on windrush

    Hello Tony before you recut that sail I trust you have tried all possible lead angles for sheeting? it appears to me with that long pole and high foot you would need to sheet from the rear beam and have a turning block at shroud chainplate im happy with mine now but changed set up twice before getting control of luff and leech with sheet darryl alpha omega 4.4
  6. Help for a first tiner

    If it's a small stainless jam cleat close to the mast it's probably for the jib furling line
  7. Maricat Rudder Blade - rehole

    It is an exact art when rudder is in sailing position draw a line on rudder with pencil thru centre of both pivot points continuing to bottom of rudder  this will give centre of effort for rudder now choose a measurement below lower pintle and use as a constant mark this on previous line at right angle to it and measure distance to leading edge of rudder this will give you a reference to make incremental adjustment to rudder rake as per your individual requirement

  9. John as I wrote  14 foot class boats will not perform well with two adults  boats such as Nacra 4.5 or 5.0 Hobie 16 or 17 and other makes of similar size can be sailed solo and still perform well 2 up cats with trapeze are the key to max fun on the water hope this helps
  10. Hello John great to see more people interested in  sailing there are many different makes of catamarans available in varying sizes for combined or solo crew weights it sounds like you want a cat to solo sometimes but mainly take someone with you so the cats that come to mind would be just above the fourteen foot class which will not perform well with two adults aboard phone the clubs you are interested in to see if someone needs regular crew on a cat that was made for two and you will learn quickly and gain confidence needed to skipper your own boat happy sailing !
  11. Pylon repairs

    Hello Toasthall  repairing old Hobie Cats with corroded rail corners and pylons is a real challenge and needs to be done well to make the platform rigid  good advise here http://www.hobiecat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=40821      
  12. Coffs Harbour has great water for cat sailing
  13. Hello Dave The wire has been twisted from load applied as the sail sets when unfurled When you replace it make sure lay of wire is correct to take twisting load (opposite to existing) and swivel works well Hope this helps Darryl
