Re: Hull painting with Roller and Tipping

Gee, this new trim tab is amazing. Really sensative to movement.

Im taking her down the river today and using the trim tab just manually it immediately turns the tiller. Got to stay away from the tiller though or you get wacked.

Sounds like whatever system you use to drive the trim tab will need to incorporate a self limiting mechanism to avoid over steering. A simple enough thing to arrange and a pleasant dilemma to have I reckon.

I completely agree with you boaty. Later in the year ill turn it back to the light yellow it was. I only used the blue because i thought my wife liked it.

Alan Mighty has suggested a number of things i can try. Including changing the rudder dampening settings. Ill try those things first. Im sure it can be callibrated to allow fir the trim tab.

Re: Hull painting with Roller and Tipping

My trip down the river went well. No problems with the motor not being used for six months. Apart from a minor freezing of the accelorator cable when we first put it in. Just need to sort this auto pilot thing with my new trim tab now.

The trim tab really surprised me with how much power they have to operate the rudder. A big rudder like mine and it can be turned with my little finger using the trim tab tiller.

Here's a picture back on her mooring. Im keen for Easter break next week. Five days off. Woo hoo.

I considered returning it to Corolis but then i heard that name on the VHF once and it sounded too much like Cliteros. dont get me wrong, i love cliteros's, i mean, i got nothing against cliteros's but i am not calling my boat after one. I seriously considered before painting her an aborigional name 'Kalamalanku', which is the local indigenous name for my local river. But i was informed it was not polite so i ditched that idea.

My boat has always had ships registration too and its expensive to change the name. $575 i think.

Re: Hull painting with Roller and Tipping

Well done, RC! And refresh my memory, please: where is that mooring? We just might be getting into the Tamar in a couple of weeks or so...
