  1. Hello all, I just acquired a Sundance 4.3, the bow test reveals more flex than I'd like in the hulls. Looking for advice on how to get the platform as stiff as possible without hurting it.
  2. Hello all, can someone please advise the area of the Sundance 4.3 main and jib, seperately please. Regards Michael.
  3. Besides the Brisbane Catamaran Centre who waste time, does anyone know where half moon cups with foam and carpet for beach wheels can be purchased? 50mm hole I believe.
  4. Hello, is anyone using a Garmin Vivoactive smart watch - and if so can it display speed calculated by GPS, track GPS whilst displaying a countdown timer at the same time.

  7. Hello, I'm wanting to cast with Araldite but don't know of a suitable mould material. Any advice welcome.
  8. It may not look like $200+ and 10 hours work but here is the trailer. It allows self launch and retrieval and keeps the boat on the beams. Thanks again Tony. http://www.bur.st/~shwell/TigerTrailer.JPG
  9. Thanks very much Tony, this is very helpful. My boat will go on backwards as well. Regards, Michael.
  10. I should say the boat is being delivered this Sunday but have started modifying the trailer already. MB.
  11. Thanks Tony, the long beams would be easier that the initial plan. Do you happen to have dimensions for keel - keel, inner gunwhale - inner gunwhale, bow to front beam and beam to beam?? Please don't feel obliged to answer, just incase you know them off the top of your head. Regards, Michael.
  12. Thanks Tony, the trailer has a 5" box but has a longer draw bar. I'm keen on something like a typical A class trailer - where you slide on via cradles upto a beam catch and then something for the back beam too. I have a few ideas but don't want to reinvent the wheel. Regards, Michael.
  13. Hello, I bought a PT and now need to modify an old duck punt trailer to suit. Can anyone advise on a method for self launch and retreival? Photo's would be much appreciated. Regards, Michael.
  14. Any good weather stations for home use? Hello, does anyone know of a affordable weather station that can deliver real time stats to the net automatically?
  15. Well that explains a bit. Luckily my cousin has outstanding ESP abilities, he'll be in touch.
  16. Where are you? My cousin may have some boards and rudders.
  17. Thanks for the replies. I forgot to mention I live on the mornington peninsula. Dimensions required are 1500 x 30 x 5.
  18. Gday, does anybody know where to buy Teflon strips about 1.5m long?
  19. Hello, could someone please give an update on the 08-09 Nationals?
  20. Hello, I have some PT daggers boards on ebay at: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=170287558087 Regards, shwell.
  21. Greetings, I'm considering building a trailer for an A class over winter and am thinking aluminium might be the way to go, but want it to be low cost as well. Anyone have any tips?
  22. There's a DVD with Mitch Booth commenting how Olympic officials where amazed upon discovering athletic prowess isn't needed to sail a Tornado. MB says good gear is the most important thing. It maybe a reason why the multihull has been dropped. Personally, I reckon a demanding single hander should be the Olympic multihull. I also reckon it'll be back sooner than later.
  23. With the old name, kids would yell "Harry the Bastard", fisherpissedheads with Sombrero's would yell "Harry the bastard get fu'd" etc... I just wasn't upto it.
  24. In case anyone is interested, oven cleaner did the trick excellently. The paint is acryllic. Here is a pic(1.1MB): http://www.bur.st/~shwell/sailing/images/justHarryNow.jpg
