0 Replies and 96 Views Rig layout for sliding jib cars Started by Deleted User I have just acquired FF3428 an Ovington IX/Dobson composite. The boat has sliding Frederickson jib cars which are set up to be adjusted individually. However, it is clear that they were originally linked to a single control on the centre console. There are some unused pulleys under the foredeck, so I was wondering if anyone could provide a sketch of how the lines are linked together so I can re-install the system. Graham Lamond Not Resolved

15 Replies and 8118 Views Help with setting up a Flying Fifteen Started by Robert Wyman Hi, hope I am writing this in the appropriate post. I am building a Flying Fifteen 4034(flyingfifteenpacific.blogspot.com/) in Hawaii and I would like to know if there is anyone I could speak with by phone on setting it up. I have a calling card to reach the UK. I have never actually seen a flying fifteen and I am left to search photos to understand the configuration of controls. I am planning to order a Selden Alto mast/boom with Goacher main/genoa sails and to setup with basic controls. I...

1 Replies and 900 Views Jockey Wheel for F15 Started by Deleted User I want to fit a jockey wheel to my F15 trailer. Most of the ones I see on the net say they are for caravans - it seems they are the same thing - or are they My question is - what type of jockey wheel should I buy to be able to support the F15 trailer. Some have nose weights of 150kgs, others 300kgs - any advice would be appreciated. Also should I buy one with a pneumatic wheel or a solid one (it's not for road towing - it's for pulling/pushing to the hoist to launch. Thank you.

3 Replies and 2206 Views Photos / diagrams to help with setting up old Flying 15 Started by Deleted User Hi - I've just come into possession of a fairly old Flying 15, and wondered if anyone had any pictures, diagrams or instructions on how to rig and set it up properly (or suggestions for links) I'm assuming the kicker attaches to the lip on the plate above the keel, but other than that I'm pretty much guessing... Thanks!

0 Replies and 1670 Views Redeck and a modern layout Started by alan williams Hi I've been given a back of the dinghy pound FF. She is a Windybank 4 composite decked by Naylor. This boat was left 5years and the decks and tanks are now rotten and requiring replacement. Will I need to have the boat stiffened If I remove the cross bracing for the traveller and fit a consul and take out the false floor. Would it be allowed to fit a full hight bow tank with a trough on the port and starboard sides. Thanks Alan

9 Replies and 4907 Views Spinnaker Pole Height Started by lee williams Can someone offer some advise on what may be wrong with my pole height adjustment, If I set it so that the pole will launch just below the horizontal then I have nowhere near enough slack to stow the pole at the end of the run. The system I have to live with at present is to fit the pole with the end lying on the foredeck, the crew then pulls up loads of slack on both sides (its led 2 ways) while I pull the spinnaker halyard. At the end of the run I drop the spinnaker then have to quickly releas...

3 Replies and 4286 Views Center Console Conversion Started by lee williams I am thinking of converting my boat to a center console, it's a Mk 4 Windebank so currently has the wooden cross member with everything mounted to that. Is it a difficult conversion and can anyone offer any tips/ advise, I don't know whether to buy an off the shelf console or make one myself from GRP/ Carbon. Also my boat has floor tanks, I am considering removing these as part of the install, is that a good idea

1 Replies and 2696 Views Difference between open fleet boat models Started by lee williams I have been wondering about the difference between the open fleet boat models available on the used market and how they compare speed and quality wise, obviously the Ovington Mk9 and 10 are well known and very well regarded but how do the Coryn, Dingwall and Windebank Mk10's compare would they be competitive at club and open event level What are the construction techniques used in each and are they as durable as the Ovington boats Cheers Lee

The main issue is the foredeck with the crew having to go up and unclip the painter. What would be the easiest way to remedy this wil...

3 Replies and 3446 Views Main sheet jammer alternatives? Started by Mike Pearce Hi all. Because I have trashed my rotator cuff shoulder muscles I am currently using a main sheet jammer mounted upside down so I can release the main sheet without having to lift it up while hiking hard. This works well... up to a point. It is very easy to tread on the main sheet and accidentally uncleat it during a tack leading to mayhem coming out of the tack. Does anyone know of any alternative systems that might solve this issue Thanks Mike ----------------------------- 34...
