Re: Jordan Series Drogue in Dyneema

Re: Jordan Series Drogue in Dyneema

While I am always open to new technology, I am wondering why you don’t reference the findings of the USCG where there was extensive testing done on JSD, parachute, and cone type “speed limiting...

Re: Jordan Series Drogue in Dyneema

Re: What downwind sail for a cruising cat?

As a suggestion, I would recommend the use of a snatch block such as
snatch blocks-antal (https://www.antal.it/eng/21_snatch_blocks_en) attached to the fore deck to use with the sock control line. ...

Re: Jordan Series Drogue in Dyneema

I agree with what you say here. That reference was written many years ago for a design load of 14k#, which was probably a fairly small boat 35 years ago. I did mean to say “with any addition such...

Re: Jordan Series Drogue in Dyneema

I have not read through this entire thread, but there is a lot of incorrect information and thinking here. First, if Dyneema had been around when Jim Jordan designed the Drogue, he would have used...

Re: Replace Generator or switch to 100% solar/wind?

Hi Cat-Keys,
Why stop at 200w solar panels? There are 330w mono’s on the market and while more expensive, they will pay for themselves in time in fuel savings. Also, with the advances in...

Re: Flexofold prop FELL OFF!!

The lapping process is akin to “custom fitting”. Even the slightest ridge on shaft or prop hub bore, can give an incorrect fit? If done with care and precision (very easy process) at first install,...

Looking at the sizing charts of both Manson and Rocna, you have a seriously UNDER sized anchor for the size/weight of boat. Sounds like you need to increase the pulpit and get the proper size...
