Eno 4 burner Stove

kimberlite <kimberlite@...>


My automatic burner lighter has stopped working (the thing that clicks when
to depress the igniter button).

The battery is new and the switch is working properly. The battery contacts
are clean.

I assume I have to take the stove apart. I also do not have a drawing of the
stove. . Does anyone have a drawing?

Has anyone else had this problem?

How do I take the stove apart?

Eric, I don't have a drawing of hoving to.. We simply back wind a shorten
head sail, move the sheet car forward as far as we can. Keep on the sheet
for chafe. We had none. Shorten the main and pull it flat on the center
line. Turn the wheel to windward and tie it off. The boat STOPS. The angle
to the wind is about 50-60 deg. The boat creates it's own slick to windward
as it drifts. The motion is to slowly move up and down the big seas (25-35
ft.) seas with an easy motion. When the bow comes up to the wind it just
falls off. Over two days of 45-60 kts we moved 75 miles. From time to time
we'd get hit with a wave from the wrong side other then that all was well.
We slept, ate, and rested for two days while the storm blow itself out.

When we bought our boat, there was a hand drawn sketch in the manual showing

a ketch rig heave-to technique using only the main and mizzen (i.e. no

headsail at all, backwinded main on the traveller, and center line mizzen).

Have you tried this technique? If so, what is it about the conventional

sloop-style headsail/main technique you prefer?

Has anyone else compared the two techniques? We haven't practiced either, so

we're interested in the benefits of what works best.

Kent, you are new at this. There are a lot of us that have done this trip

for years. I know the Bahama's look like an easy way, they are NOT>> Once

you get our of Norfolk the winds normally will take you to Bermuda anyway..

Take advantage of that go east.. When you depart from Bermuda head for 60

degs as you go south. DON't be tricked into a straight line course to St.

Martin.. you head a bit east and when the winds come on your port let them

carry you to St. Martin.. Bring lots of fuel cans as there will be wind or

NONE... Eric carries lots of fuel so do we. You'll need it.. Also be sure to

get your cook gas cans filled before to take off. USE Herb and be sure to

call in every day he HATES people that don't.. in fact he worries to death

if you don't.. Try hoving two from time to time before you need too. It

works. Back wind the shortened headsail, bring the main on center shorten it

up to about a #3 reef with a short head sail bring

the wheel to windward and tie off the wheel with the mizzen rolled up.

She'll sit there and all will be well. We have done it in several big

nor'easter and two tropical blows.. It works.. even 35 foot seas. If you

find yourself running before the wind we lay out a big 300 foot u shaped

warp of 3/4 line to slow the boat and keep her steady so the auto pilot

doesn't kill itself. You've got one of the be sea going boats in the world.

Don't panic and you'll do just fine.

Thanks a bunch John. That's what I needed to hear. All I have to do now is

get my SSB working for weather faxes and communications, and get my nerve up

enough to go to sea for 12 days. I'll probably have to get some professional

crew since none of my friends are up for that kind of trip yet. I think I'll

be OK with it if I have reliable weather info.

Where are you getting your shoulder worked on? I'm an anesthesiologist in

North Carolina. Ask for an interscalene block and catheter for postop pain

relief...it' ll make you pretty much pain free for 2-3 days after surgery.

Only other advice on shoulder surgery is to do your PT religiously no matter

what. Worst thing that can happen is to limit your movement enough that you

get a frozen shoulder.

Good luck with that.

My phone number is 828 234 6819 (cell). I may give you a call in a week or

two if I haven't made my mind up yet.

Thanks again,

Kent, I've done that trip many times over the last 35 years. Don't even

think about going the gentlemens route. Its a real tough way to go. You will

spend a lot of time waiting for weather, like months, And motoring most of

the time into big seas. Bite the bullet,head to Bermuda to get your easting

in, and then head for St, Martin's. You'l be there in 12 days. If you go to

the Virgins first you will have a 80 mile bash to windward to get to St,

Martin's, Better to pick up the Virgins on the way back. Also stop in the

Bahamas on the way back, they are warm and beautiful in the springtime but

are terrible in the winter. You should also consider the Caribbean 1500.

They leave from Hampton Va, on the 2nd of Nov. Well organized with weather

routing etc. I wouldn't leave the Chesapeake before the first week in Nov.{

think hurricane.} Going to Savannah is good because they don't get

hurricanes, but you are going west when you want to go east. The Gentlemens

guide is a wonderful book, I have read it twice. He's a great writer. I'm

going to the States for a shoulder opperation this week so will have plenty

of time to talk while recovering. E-mail me your phone no. if you need any

more help.symoondog@ hotmail.com John "moon Dog" sm248

Hi, all,

I'm making plans for the trip South from the Chesapeake to the Caribbean and

thought I'd ask for some advice. I've done a few 3-5 day offshore trips

across the Gulf and up the coast, but haven't tackled the trip South yet.

From what I've read a lot of people sail out to Bermuda, then South to avoid

the upwind beat from the Bahamas down the chain, but I still don't have my

SSB working (or have a good way to get weather that far offshore) I'm

working on that, but haven't had much luck yet. I have a week in Oct that I

could take her down to Savannah, then a month from mid Nov to mid Dec. I've

ordered the book "A Gentleman's Guide to Passages South", but wanted some

advice from folks who've been there and done that. Just how "bad" are the

two approaches to getting to the BVI from the E Coast?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
