Hi from Stockholm

Hi,
Just joined, and thought I should introduce myself.
Live in Stockholm, Sweden. Been sailing for as long as I can remember. In the Baltic, to Norway, Shetland, Scotland. In the Med.
Now, built a big boat. 36 ft, 9+ tons. Junk rig. I am a bit superstitious about plans, but am thinking about Norway next summer. Favorite place so far. We just need to finish some stuff on the boat first...

I will be posting questions like: what to do when the baby blake pump is stuck? How about "bladder" tanks for extra diesel? What should I lubricate my manual windlass with? etc. I just need to find the proper forums first.

Hopefully, I can contribute answers too.

You can see the blog about our boat, Linnea here: S/Y Linnea
It has some pictures and video as well.

Hi Hampus.
I think I met him once. If it is a guy with an Allegro 30. He said he used shrouds just to not have to defend the free standing mast in marinas.

Hello Matti!

No this one is a steel boat. Self built and quite good looking. No shrouds anywhere near it

Welcome from India! We have a junk rig here lying on our cay. Doesn't look to great... haha! Hope yours is in a beter condition. (lubricate you windlass with water resistant bearing grease, and keep it up, every two months, at least!)

Wlcome aboard - We have a Maxi 77 originally built in Sweden but also built here under license.

The most confusing thing about my boat is the websites for it are predominantly in Swedish - LOL.

I have had a few htings needing translating.

Have fun here. Lot's of experts to help with your questions.

Hey there!

What do you need translated? I've had two Maxi 77, one early production and one late.

Aloha Matti,
Welcome aboard! Junk rig, wow! I don't care for bladder tanks because I'm afraid of a lot of chafe. I use the best water resistant bearing grease I can find on the shelf for winches and windlass. I don't know what a baby blake pump is but if it is stuck then you probably need to take it apart and remove the obstruction?? Just a thought.
Our club has a couple of International Folkboats. I'll bet you see a lot of those up your way.
Kind regards,
JohnL
