Some pictures of my heavy weather jib setup, toilet door and Battle Sticks

It is a long time I put some pictures up again of some mods I did on my boat.
I have the heavy weather jib one year now and this year I used it a couple of time to get the boat more under controle and get some more comfort with stronger winds. Last week I did setup the long battle sticks the same way I had them on Thrill Seeker. We did put the toilet door in place, this time not with a zipper because that was not working.

Colligo Cheeky Tang fittings

Today we did place the Colligo Cheeky tangs on the mast, Gary did a nice job for me to make the thru-bold exactly on the richt length and make some special lock nuts. The loop is going thru the side stays later when the mast is on the boat again for transport. The side stay has a loop but that it not big enough voor the tangs so I use a loop to do so.

  • New start battery.
  • Remote for the autopilot
  • New Coppercoat in the front and the back.
  • Pad eye to block mast rotation.
  • Cheeky tangs on the mast for the side stays.
  • Paint on some scratches.
  • Battle stick to steer from the trampoline.
  • eyes on the mast mount to attache blocks

HET races (Henk Eggink Trofee)

Last weekend we had our annual HET races (Henk Eggink Trofee).
They made a nice video from the start of the race on Sunday off group 2.
We had to finish in front of Fuchur a F33 to win the total race because they scored on the Saturday a one and a two and we did score a three and a one.
We had to beat them with +/- 3 minute  to get with rating in front of them and the result was that after calculation we beat them with just two seconds. This was the first race we did get to beat them on rating

Credits to Gary and Casper who made the movi I only had to down size it because the quality was to high and put some sound on it.

Ariella Bijl did shoot some nice pictures.

rotating mast windsensor

Today I finally had the rotating mast windsensor working, it was a bit off a challenges to calibrate because I had to decipher the manual and had to figure out how to turn (direction) the mast and to set the angle of the sensor. I first thought I had place the windsensor the wrong way but lucky it was setup right (The CV7 sensor must be installed with the “Nord” mark on the bracket aligned to the geographical North for a fix installation on shore and to the bow on a vessel. ) This text was not printed at my sensor but an other CV7.

Rudder sensor

Today we glued a piece of glass fiber on the stern to mount the rudder sensor on. We also glued a piece to the rudder bracket to attache the arm of the sensor on. We had to glue a pipe thru the water ballast tank to get the cable of the senor on the inside. We think that this place of the senor is the best one because it is well protected from line what could ripe it apart.
We made some ventilation holes under the cockpit seats.
I did a trial fit of the razing bars and did line them up with a steel pipe what did go thru the mast base.
