Re: BOW THRUSTER .Replacement cover does not align

 

I am not sure why there have been some fitting issues with these parts, but there have been.

Whatever you do, DO NOT USE THE OLD COVER. The old cover will appear to work but will misalign the new gears.

Hi Ruslan,
I have not experienced any problems with twisting in practice, maybe it untwists itself when under load.  
Also, I would not be happy with the diagonal run from jammer to chain-plate and laterally to the winch. The angle at the jammer is not good.

Re: PredictWind Presentation - and some extra info on GRIB files

Hi Tuen,

Yes, I agree with your experience and opinion regarding weather routers. They can be a mixed bag. However, probably no more variable than the range of good or bad decisions that any skipper can make for him or herself. Especially now that we can get the output from the various computer-generated weather model ourselves, essentially directly on-board, whilst in the middle of nowhere. And with the software available to us these days to crunch-the-numbers and with great data visualisation. When you think of it, the technology we have at our disposal is absolutely incredible.

As an aside, I am fortunate enough to have been a trained MET observer since the early 80’s, and was using weather in my daily work for many years. I always do my own departure planning and routing. But nevertheless, I still maintain a weather router for most trans-oceanic passages – one specialising in our area of operation – holding a copy of my passage plan, and on standby. This is for the event that my own on-board systems might fail*, or should I become incapacitated and my crew need outside assistance to get them to the original port, or to an alternate.

As well, I know the tendency to focus on achieving a desired outcome (get-there-itis), and the possibility to become blind to an ‘uncomfortable truth’. Although I would hope to remain objective, I have read enough incident and accident reports to know that the best of us fall prey to such effects. So, I ask the MET person on-shore to keep an eye out for anything that I might have missed – the broader range perspective, or using tools and imagery that I may not have ready access whilst offshore. It makes for some interesting discussions at times. But all good.

And yes, like you, I have on occasion had two weather guys on the side, but found that this didn’t help matters at all; just increased the ambiguity. Just like having more models in PW, doesn’t necessarily result in a better or more certain outcome.

Looking forward to catching up soon.

Best,

David

* Arriving into Bermuda on an iPhone – I launched without paper charts (yes, I know, but extenuating weather-related circumstances dictated a change of destination). The charts on the main chartplotter failed to load. And then the backup iPad froze. Talk about the Bermuda triangle! I now have two backup iPads, each fully loaded with the suite of applicable software (and running different iOSs, different app versions). Unless absolutely necessary due to gear failure, I also now do not make any optional configuration changes (new hardware, or upgrades to firmware, operating system, or software) to anything electronic on-board within 4-6 weeks (preferably longer) of planned departure.

Thanks David,

All clear - I will take a look at Weather4D and maybe we can talk about it if/when you make it back to the Marina here.

So far I have, for passage etc., only relied on PDW plus for the crossing to AUSTRALIA only had 2 professional weather consultants; both with similar mixed results ☹. Purchased from both a 10 trip package with a time/usage limited validity which then rendered useless due to COVID. Was in November 2019 NOT impressed with the weather info & routing recommendations and came, in November 2019, to the conclusion that the original PDW departure & routing was more accurate than the “professionals”. The expiration of my remaining 9 consults (each) wasn’t really helpful and didn’t score bonus points either hahahahaha.

In all fairness: one of the consultants extended my usage period and I need to see if he is still willing to help me when I make passage later this year.

Hi there Teun,

With regards to: " Weather4D allows me to easily run and re-run various routing scenarios whilst underway, without needing to go online each time, as is the case with the PW Offshore app"

Question: >  where & how does Weather4D gets it updates if the iPad is not connected to the internet or satellite?

Answer: Wx4D does not get any updated GRIBs unless connected to internet (or polling GRIBs via SailDOCs).  The various routing scenarios I am referring to here are exploratory boat-scenarios.

To explain, whilst underway I download the GRIB/s once a cycle (normally daily under routine circumstances, but 12-hourly under dynamic weather conditions or when decisions need to be made).  With a valid GRIB loaded, you can adjust various parameters in Wx4D, such as setting different routes, RTE start-end & intermediate waypoints, ETD, or different polars, or adjust the polar weighting; then re-run the scenario locally.  Calculating each run takes about 10 seconds.  You can then compare the result of each scenario-set visually on-screen.  For example, what is the effect of a polar set at 85%, versus 45%, or going great-circle PresentPosition-to-Destination versus via x, y or z.  You can see the estimated future position of the boat with respect to the weather systems and wind/wave fields for each of the different selected scenarios (fast, slow, left, right).  This all happens locally.

Whereas with PW, the routing calculation for a single route (using different WX models) takes place online, with the results being downloaded to the Offshore app.  Meaning, with PW, you need to go online to do each a new routing calculation (scenario analysis, WPT, polar setting), even within the same forecast period.  And you cannot hold-over to see the results of a previous run.

Does this answer your question?  Feel free to ask if any further explanation is required.

In any event, hoping to catch up if we can get back down to Hope Island marina before we wing it back to NZ.  Happy to show you then.

Best,

David

Good ZOOM hook-up - thank you Bill & Tilo for organising and moderating.

I learnt a few good things: use of high-resolution models for local forecasts; and the better speed of the PWoffshore APP because it caches data locally.

If you are like me, a little 'old school', preferring to access and study all kinds of weather information from diverse source, or for those interested in some more detail and background information about GRIB files, the attached Weather Compendium provides a general overview about how to obtain and use GRIB files, and other sources of weather data, albeit with a focus on French Polynesia.  See section 32.

As background, I have been using PredictWind on and off for 8 years - as only one of the many tools in my weather toolbox - and trialled the PW PROFESSIONAL level of subscription for our recent trip Fiji-NZ, during which we encountered some gnarly weather.  The responsiveness and level of support from the PW team is second to none.

That said, as a weather 'geek', I still prefer to run my own weather forecasting and routing tools, and my "Go To" tool is Weather4D on an iPad, which I have also been using for passage-making since 2014 without complaint.  Weather4D allows me to easily run and re-run various routing scenarios whilst underway, without needing to go online each time, as is the case with the PW Offshore app.  There are a number of other apps and PC/Mac applications that do the same thing.  But for many cruising types, increasingly PW is a fully capable and functional tool for visualising key elements of the weather forecast.

I hope the attached is of some interest.

Hi Mark,
The Jaycar unit is a complete switch.
It's slightly different construction to the original - probably not as good hence so much cheaper.
The cap is integral with the button...if you unscrew the cap it exposes the internals of the switch.

Re: PredictWind Presentation - and some extra info on GRIB files

David, Tuen,

+1 for Weather4D. 

I have been using Weather4D for a few years and have been really happy with how it operates. I compared it side by side with PW 4 or 5 years ago and there was daylight between them, however it's clear that PW has caught up.

On long passages I run it constantly, feeding it with my live navigation data via WiFi.  I compare my planned routing with reality and where necessary update the plan to reflect the latest reality.  Most weather models are available, but I was particularly impressed with the accuracy of the French Arpege models when sailing between Scotland and Greece.

I much prefer the ability to run the route planning locally on the boat rather than remotely on a third party server.

Weather4D is not marketed as vigorously as PredictWind, but hopefully the quality of the product and their support sustain it into the future.

"On port side bug winch is in the way and also while sheets are trimmed"

Ruslan,
On port side for the staysail sheets, you need to use a block on the mainsail backstay plate to clear the big winch. I also use a block on starboard side, mostly to make the setup symmetrical. 

I use a cleat-block on the rear lifting plates for the staysail running backstay. This allows me to tension it either by hand or with a little winch action, and it then holds the tension whilst not running across the side decks as a little trip hazard.

Re: Shaft generator doesn’t load

Bill Kinney
 

Roland,

What is the current voltage of the batteries?  If it is VERY, VERY low then there might not be enough voltage to generate the required field current.  I think this is unlikely, but possible.

Other than that, I can think of nothing that could be related between the a deep discharge of the 24V batter bank and the failure of the shaft alternator.  The first place I would check would be for voltage on the field wire to the alternator (the small wire).  If that is not +24V to negative, then that's the issue.  Find out where the break in the circuit is.

If there IS field current, then... it's time to dive into diagnoses of the alternator itself.

What happened to the main engine 24V alternator?  Why did that fail?

Re: A54 backstay and staysail and genaker blocks

I have always put the runner block on the outboard lifting chainplate and run the line to the winch.

However I think it works better to run it to the small mainsail backstay plate. It leaves the windward side deck free of a taught shin killer. I once walked into the tight runner and cut my shin on it! Very painful…

It is plenty strong enough. Runners should be well snug not winched super tight…really to stop any pumping of the mast.

Changing end-caps Desal

Nick Newington
 

This morning I changed the Desalateur end caps.(160l)

The only thing I want to add to the common knowledge is that I found that the air blower needed to be dropped in order to access the forward outboard nut holding up the frame.
Once out into the cockpit we unbolted the frame from the pressure vessels and using the hose clamp and line technique, yanked the end caps off. Easy as…..
The bobbin was a bit corroded and some signs of crumbling of the end cap itself but only at the bobbin hole.


All reinstalled and running drip free.

Shaft generator doesn’t load

Roland Mueller
 

Hi,

Our shaft generator was working fine, but after a total breakdown of our 24v supply (24v alternator defective and Onan generator not starting), it doesn’t load anymore.

Before the 24v breakdown, both control lamps (green and red) were off, when the shaft generator wasn’t in use. After the 24v breakdown and after recharging the batteries with shore power, the red control lamp is permanently on, even the control switch is off:
image0.jpeg

When trying to start the shaft generator (switch on, with enough speed under sails, and the prop turning backwards), normally the green control lamp should be on, but in our case the red control lamp remains continuously on, even sailing with 7 knots:
image1.jpeg

All cables at the shaft generator are well connected. It seems like the 24v breakdown changed some settings to enable the shaft generator to start loading.

Has anyone experienced this issue and knows how to solve it?
