    I have a question about in mast reefing. 2018 Selden Furling mast. Is there a way to haul out the main sail to a desired reef point without the whole entire sail having to come out and then pulling it back into the position you require? The mast does have a ratchet switch but needs to be in the open/on position to allow the sail to come out.

    Dockhead,
    Do you know Keri Pashuk ? I've been watching your high latitude stuff yearnings which is why I ask. Greg Landreth and Keri Pashuk are a H&W team. See [http://www.northanger.org/en/whohow.php]Northanger[/url] - Expedtioning elsewhere[/url] . Never met them but we were their sponsor in a minor way, and we know/knew both climbing and sailing. Maybe they are a place to seek disinterested advice. regards, david + pp

    When are you going to post some photos and a video of your Greenland adventure?

    I give up (battery thread). Somewhere between a Congressional debate and an anchor thread.



    FWIW, I think you basic premise is close. There is some loss in lifetime, but so long as they are recharged soon, the loss is quite low once adjusted for the increased bank usage. I lived with a slightly undersized bank for some time.


    An interesting thread might be the best battery type and DOD for several cases:
    * Monhull long-term cruiser.
    * Multihull long term cruiser. Weight is more important.
    * Monohull weekend/ocational cruiser.
    * Multihull weekend /occational cruiser. Weight is important.
    * Racers. Weight is important to multihulls and weight is critical to performance multihulls.


    In one of those attachments there was a graph that showed wet lifetime vs. SOC range for several battery types. What it also showed was that for batteries that only see 200-400 deep cycles in their lifetime, it just does not matter that much; they die from corrosion.

    I can’t PM or open any forum etc. I think disabling my PM essentially banned me, can you get me reinstated?

    Hi Dockhead, There are a couple of users that remind me of retired FL condo association officers whose opinion I have no interest in on any level. I have added them to my ignore list. Does that mean my posts are also hidden from them? I don't want flaming emails of ridicule coming my way based on *ignorant questions*. Thanks, Rick
