  1. Thanks for the advice. I ended up running 38psi and there was no heat in the tyre at all and looked like the tyre looked like it was about a good pressure
  2. Pressure was at 20psi originally and that looked too low so i ended up putting 38psi in them as the springs have a little give. Trailer and boat traveled fine on the trip so I'll watch Centre tyre wear but will stick with the higher pressure for now. Thanks for the advice
  3. Here is one more vid. Check out how calm the water is but with a decent breeze blowing. I almost had my leeward hull go under at the start and i couldn't tell from all the spray coming off it!! Windrush 14 Sailing Stansbury:
  4. Interested in beach wheels but would need to find someone to get them over to SA. Anyone heading this way that could help out?
  5. Was at Hardwicke Bay in the shorter vid, then Stansbury in the other.   Managed to get rid of the crew for 30mins and take it out myself, unfortunately didn't have the trapeze set up but with my 95kgs could sail pretty hard leaning right out while flying the hull. It was moving!!
  6. Hi all, Thought I'd post a few vids from the last few days of sailing. Starting to get the hang of it now I've had it or 5-6 times. Ive got crew onboard in these vids and we were way over weight (generally around 180 - 220kgs total crew weight)
  7. Thanks for the advice. My trailer still has curve in the Springs once fully loaded up so i might try running 36-38 psi and check an hour into the trip to see how the tyre temp is going.
  8. Hi, Can anyone tell me what pressure to run in a 4.80/4.00-8 trailer tyre? It has max 90psi on the tyre for 725lb max weight (or approximately that weight from memory) 90psi seems very high,my trailer is for my Windrush 14 Any advice for the pressure would be appreciated. Thanks

  10. Removing a tramp?

    Yes i used an epoxy glue that was thickened into a paste using a filler. It came out really thick and I basically just applied it using long rubber gloves and rubbed it all over the inside hull and side of the foam. Amazing how hot that stuff gets as the chemical reaction goes off, got to work reasonably quickly and only make enough to do one hull at a time. I also used it to do a few small hull repairs near the rudders where the edge has chipped away. It sanded down nicely forming the shape of the hull lip.
  11. Removing a tramp?

    Hi Hockeye,   There is a guy here in Adelaide that i spoke to a couple of weeks ago, he had a spare tramp for a windrush 14 that he said was in good condition, he was happy to sell it. I'll give him a call if you like and see if he is happy for me to pass on his phone number.   As for the loose foam in the hulls, I hate to tell you this but it is a pain in the a** to do. Don't use foam in there, I mixed up epoxy resin glue which goes rock hard and seems to have worked for me.   Do you have inspection ports at the back and front of the hulls? If not, you will need to cut 5" holes just aft of the front cross beams, do all the gluing of the foam inside the hulls and then install the inspection ports. This will give you a little extra room to work with.   I've attached a pic of where my inspection ports are.    
  12. Removing a tramp?

    Hi Hockeye,   I recently install a brand new tramp on my Windrush 14. I'd start by undoing the rope that is laced across the back securing the tramp. Then get someone to help you work it forward along the side tracks, you probably need to do 1-2 inches one side then the same on the other side till you have it completely out of the two side tracks. You can do this by yourself but you will have to move one side a bit then the other, easier to have someone help. You may need to fold the tramp under the front cross beam as you work it out of the side tracks. Then simply slide it out of the front track.
  13. My first Windrush 14

    Nice one Steve, I like the colour, particularly the matching rudders.   I'm having trouble finding a decent main and jib, I'm hoping Darcy can come through for me. From what I have been told a lot of sails get handed down within clubs.   One thing i noticed on your set up though is that you have the two forestays as well as the bridle/ jib forestay. My understanding is you can do away with the two forestays when setting up with jib and bridle. I sailed mine that way and all the videos I have seen do the same. Not sure if it actually makes a difference though.   I'll be taking my boat out on Saturday again (3rd sail), will probably sail off Largs Bay again though. Will try to take a few more pics and a better video while I'm out.
  14. Does anyone know of someone else that may be interested in selling a set of Windrush 14 sails?   Thanks
