Its connected by a Raymarine 4000gp. Im not intending yet to add a windvane. No real need in these parts. But when i do ill add that one with the two wires in a tube that go to the trim tab. With that one the vane can sit up hi where the solar panels are.

The green is pretty close. Its called vintage green which was the boats origional import colours.

From what I can see they just slapped one coat on with no prep and Definitely no undercoat.. mind.. only to be expected as the AF job they did was a rip off as well..
That's the price/consequence of commissioning work from 7,000miles away and not being there to oversee.. you'll get ripped off every time. some will even try it to your face.
Caution to anyone getting work done in Malta.. be ON SITE.
And even then they'll have a good try..
I had a similar problem when i brought mine. She was newly painted and looked pretty good. She had a white deck then. After a ten day trip down south i arrived in the Tamar River with a distinctly looking zebra boat. They had simply painted over any rust.

Sounds like one of those dodgy SA boat yards you hear about so often. ;^)

Autohelm windvane is probably what I'll end up going for as it will be easily added to my trim tab at minimal cost.

But, I don't think I'll need it for a few years until I get closer to retirement. There is no where here that an electrical auto pilot can't get me and if necessary hand steering.

With all the hard work already done, building your own H vane might actually be fun. As you say, it would a relatively low cost to buy the vane unit, but home built is practical in this case, and you get that little glow from watching something you built work.

Anyway, a tiller pilot on that trim tab would use one mouse-fart of electricity every couple of days to run so you are miles ahead of the game right from the start. Our old coursemaster dims the lights on shore when it kicks in.

snowpetrol sent me plans and writings on how to make one. Once I work out the theory enough, I may very well do that. But it will be one with these nylon and stainless steel lines I think.

Excellent.

I have a book by a Gerard Dijkstra which is quite old fashioned now, but I found more helpful than other books because he goes into some detail about the mathematics of the system, areas, ratios etc. If you need any of that info I can post it down to you, it is quite a small book, just under 200mm square.

FWIW, I am getting very good results using some left over Campagnolo brake cable for my control system. Sadly the project is only half built as I have stopped to work on the house this year (mixing the bathroom slab this morning) but I am confident the Campag cables will work very well for the pull-pull mechanics, they are still perfect on my road bike after 15 years of abuse.

Re: Hull painting with Roller and Tipping

Thanks guys

Ill be doing the day trip back down the river to my usual mooring next Saturday. Then ill do an initial shake down the following week, perhaps to Flinders Island so i can give the the sail set ups a good go.

Snowpetrol will recall, i had gates on both masts that in order to reef, at all, i had to undo the gates and drop the sails. Damn hard in a blow. So now, i can reef and raise without undoing any gates at all.
