Yes , detail drawings, along with far more.Asking questions like this is guaranteed to change the topic of conversation but not, unfortunately, on to the subject of “pictures of your windvane”...
If you don't want me to post proof of my cruising and Pacific crossings, then stop asking the same questions, and posting the same lies about my offshore cruising experience.The writing on this is fuzzy and barely legible. No need to post it repeatedly.
Sorry I got my post wrong.We’re all with you John, well... most of us!
I haven't posted any lies about your offshore cruising experience, or lies about anything else for that matter. Please stop calling me a liar.If you don't want me to post proof of my cruising and Pacific crossings, then stop asking the same questions, and posting the same lies about my offshore cruising experience.
If you don't want to see the proof ,then don't post the lies.
No I didn't misunderstand you, I just couldn't resist adding the slightly sarcastic remarks....I hope you didn’t think I was being sarcastic John, I understood you very well, I just hope you and we get an honest un ranted answer before this thread goes from 12 pages to 24?!
The drawing I have exceeds the limit allowed here.Glad you are back.
Would it be possible for you to post a picture of your windvane please?
Scrap stainless is, on a molecular level , absolutely identical to new, and indistinguishable from it in any way. The sea doesn't read the brand name or price tag before deciding on how hard to treat gear.Perhaps it is so with all forms of mechanical engineering that the individual who devotes as much time to the form of a thing as to its function invariably produces something simple, efficient and a pleasure to use.
Scrap materials cobbled together may well suffice for the work up of an idea but do not inspire me when they are put forth as the finished product, un evidenced by even so much as a picture...

Is this yours too, Brent?Scrap stainless is, on a molecular level , absolutely identical to new, and indistinguishable from it in any way. The sea doesn't read the brand name or price tag before deciding on how hard to treat gear.
Believing it does, is a suckers game!
Here is your picture.
Yes definitely! He tried a horizontal axis one ,and found it took to much fiddling around, with no real advantage. This one took him around Cape Horn, and on to the Aleutians, then back to BC, with no complaints.Is this yours too, Brent?
North of Cabo, in winter, dark green was warm to the touch on sunny days when she was frozen in in minus 12 degrees C.May i ask a question about the paint
if it is so good, how come we have changed colours ie see posts 96 & 97 where this occurs again
I have passports from many pacific crossings, but they exceed the size limit here.I’ll leave others to judge whether your claims to have sailed the Pacific many times are credible. One of my jobs in assessing candidates for their skippers tickets (offshore or ocean) is to assess whether their claimed experience is credible.
People who rush to ‘prove’ their claims with photographs of one record aren’t always very convincing. I’m sure you’ve made one crossing. You’ve IMPLIED you’re an extremely experienced sailor, but I’ll allow others to judge their veracity.
