Stuff that happened on the boat and I somehow fixed

(16 comments)

I took a sabbatical sailing the mediterranean sea for a year.

Some stuff broke on the boat.

Engine

The boat is equipped with a volvo md2030 engine. The heat exchanger had a leak. After some intense messing around I fixed the leak with metal-epoxy, it's holding so far.

Sails

The sails are fine, just an eyelet broke. Before leaving I took the sails to a professional to assess their remaining life expectancy, the pro said 5 year-ish. The sails got trimmed and reinforced. 

Also we broke an halyard, probably due to some friction on a piece that's unnecessary on the mast. Braking the halyard was annoying, it happened at sea and there was about 20 knots blowing, but the journey was short that day fortunately. Passing a new halyard down the mast was annoying, using a smaller rope with some weight did help.

Windlass

The DC electric motor of my windlass fried, the magnets part of the stator got unglued and broke. I ordered a new part that turned out to be too long to fit in the case. Then a miracle happened, asking around some shipyard had a piece lying around, just a year older than my original piece. So that also got fixed.

Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility
issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine
but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
terrific blog!
