A "Hinkley" thing

It hit me as I was getting our Pilot ready to launch this spring, just how people react to these old girls.

I was talking to a very nice man who was working on his sailboat a few boats down from mine. He was telling me the old story we've all heard about how his boat had very little bright work as he didn't want to be a slave to it. I find myself trying to not brag up our boat as it tends to "brag" itself up plenty on it's own. So I took the old "I know what you mean" approach. I was going… Continue

Dutchman System

I am having a small problem with the Dutchman system on Whimsey. When I drop the main sail a
Small section on the end of the main collapses over the wheel (and anyone standing or sitting there).
Is this normal? No one here seems to have any experience with this system.

Electric winches

I noticed that someone posted earlier that they installed two speed electric winches...I am thinking of doing the same on the jib to make Whimsey easier to single hand. would love to hear if there are many of you who have installed them and how it worked out?

"We have our new Yanmar now. We love it, and have great power. (especially in reverse) Way more prop walk then we had with the Westerbeke. But the larger wheel certainly would account for that."
