On the boom, there should be a pulley mounted on the bottom with a hanging line. This line goes from here down to the first pulley on the block mounted between the seats. Then back up to the pulley on the boom then down to the second pulley between the seats then thru the jam cleats and out thru the eyelet for the skipper to adjust. Hope this helps.

What equipment do I need to start windsurfing?


Windsurfing equipment consists of board that looks like a big surfboard and the rig. The rig is like the engine. It has many parts including the sail, the mast, the boom (the part you hold on to) and the extension and universal.

The choice for your first windsurfing board and sail depends on many factors. The main ones are: sailing conditions where you sail, your weight and your ability. Stronger winds, less weight and higher skills indicate a smaller board and sails. For most people a board with more or less 180 liters of volume with a sail around 4.0-6.5 sqr.meters is the perfect starter package.

Do I need a special license to sail a Yacht?


You do not need a license to sail your Yacht. However, if it is not yours and you are renting it, you may need a sailing license or some sort of certificate that proofs that you are capable of sailing the boat.

Also keep in mind that this may differ from country to country so you may want to double check.

I need a user manual for my badger,dynacraft mkii bait boat


not much to it really .Left toggle forward for speed (get used to running boat slow before you drop bait,takes a bit of practise).Left toggle back opens hopper to drop bait and rig.(Adjust trimmer nearby so motor not running when toggle not operated, usually about 3/4 up) Right toggle for direction left/right (adjust trimmer nearby if boat sails left or right) Get used to just a quick flick of the toggle to direct the boat. Leave handset aerial one section short of fully up in case you sail out of range.Hope this helps

INSTALLED HE360A, FAN MOTOR RUNS, EVEN WHEN FURNACE IS OFF? IS THIS NORMAL


Yes - but it doesn't have to work that way. There are several methods you can use to have the humidifier run only when the furnace runs. Look on the back page of the installation instructions. The method I chose was to install a sail switch. This is a switch with a arm attached which has a "sail' attached to it. When the furnace blower runs, the sail catches the blower airflow and activates the switch; allowing the humidifier to operate.
You can also wire in a current sensing relay (figure 6 on the instructions) or connect the humidifier directly into the furnace motor ignition box (if so equipped. My furnace dates to the late 70's and has no place to plug in a humidifier; which is why I installed a sail switch.)
Now however I probably would go with the current sensing relay option as this looks to be the easiest route to follow. Honeywell has their 32001754-001 avaliable for less than $35 from Sears.

What is the most important sailboat hardware?


If you are looking to sail with comfort, safety or performance you may have to put together not only the wind, the ocean, the sails but your sailboat hardware.From blocks for proper sail trim to furling units for easy sail handling. These are examples of some important salling hardware: Bailers, Blocks, Rigging, Winches, Shackles and rope cluches.

Whats a sail switch


A sail switch is a Blower "on" proof switch. It's purpose is to prevent equipment such as air cleaners and/or humidifiers from energizing unless the blower is running. The sail switch literally has a sail that is put in the ductwork. When the blower starts, the airflow will push the sail so as to close a switch allowing accessory equipment to operate.

I hope you find this information to be very helpful to your moving forward. Let me know if you have any further questions, comments, or concerns.

Please leave a rating. :-)

I am looking at a cabin cruiser with the view to buying same. Have been told that it is a cut down version of a Challenger yacht (40) Is their such an animal? Don


It may be that the seller is referring to the Challenger 40 sailboat, which came with either a marconi or ketch sail rig. Compare the deck layout, photos at the bottom of page, and the specifications with the boat on:
http://www.sailboatlistings.com/cgi-bin/saildata/db.cgi?db=default&uid=default&view_records=1&ID=14024&mh=1
...then it is the same or similar, this may be the boat referred to by the seller. There are also go-fast power boats with the name Challenger, but not something that a re-make would produce a nice cabin cruiser from.
