  3. Lifejacket check

    Many Thanks to Dave,Mike and Carol for the LJ checks at the AGM Just checking my Seago's 4 x175nm plus a junior 100nm size . All auto heads way out of date (2011) but look perfect . Gas cylinders weighed and all spot on and no corrosion(I also have 4 older ones that I use for spares as they show minimal signs of corrosion) Note each cylinder is engraved with a minimum gross weight so as long as at or above this they haven't discharged. Crotch straps fitted to all and checked. Checked the Srobe lights and Spray hoods which fitted to 3 x175's all functional. Just waiting to see if they will pass the 24hr inflation test now.

  12. Trim Tabs - Orkney Pilothouse 20

    One other note of caution Mel ........... the need to fit anodes to the tabs. Not really an issue if you are drystacked or store ashore but if left afloat they are seriously necessary. I speak from experience as I had the Port Tab break away from the hull due to galvanic corrosion of the hinge fixing screws. I was happily doing about 15knots at the time when all of a sudden boat basically tried to turn on its side . Boats dont like running with just one tab down Scared the **** out of me Limped back to Cobbs with a dangly tab on one side and the other raised up and kept speed down . I fitted anodes to both tabs after that ....BIG ones as I was having to replace small ones twice a year when on F pontoon. Aaahhhh another hidden benefit of drystacking Peteg
