Swap Meet / Doyle Mainsail for Sail - $2500
« Last post by Rick McClain on July 20, 2017, 11:56:43 PM »
I have a Never Used Doyle Cruising Mainsail for sail. It was cut for a CSY 44 and used as a back-up, but has been stored clean and dry since its purchase. It is in perfect, never used condition.
Luff - 42.5 ft.
Foot - 15.5 ft.
Triple Stitching
4 Battens
2 Reefing Points located at 70" from the foot and 144" from the foot
Flying Cringles at reefing points for use with double ram's horn reefing hooks
Approximately 12" of Roach
Since it has never been used, I don't have any photos of it rigged, but can supply photos of it laying out on the ground with close-ups of details.
Sail is all white with Doyle logo.
This sail originally cost over $4000 and I have contacted a consignment seller that has said he'd probably ask around $2700 for it in his shop.
I'll take $2500 for it.
Buyer arranges for and pays for shipping.
As of July 2017 I am currently living aboard CSY44 Island Time in Boot Key Harbor, Marathon, Florida.
Although this sail was designed for a CSY44, obviously it would fit any sailboat with these dimensions.
     I am selling this sail because my boat Island Time has a roller furling system, so I have no need for this sail, which is designed to be reefed.
       If you need a new mainsail, this is a great buy.

General Discussion / Re: Anyone planning to be in Melbourne for the Gam ?

Hi Roger,

Welcome to the forum!  The Melbourne, FL SSCA Gam is scheduled for Nov 10-12, and we plan to be there.  So we'll try to organize something on Saturday or Sunday morning, unless Brett wants to!  Which day it is depends on how the Gam schedule falls out--we don't want to compete with the main events.

We no longer own a CSY, but we still love our old girl.  Looking forward to seeing old and new faces.

There isn't a lot published yet about the Melbourne Gam, but for more information on Gams in general, see the SSCA web page, on the Events menu.

There are CSY's scattered all over, so if you go to a Gam, try to organize your own CSY breakfast!

Hull and Rig / Stauchen Nuts and Socket Length
« Last post by Merrily on July 16, 2017, 11:39:42 PM »
Can anyone tell me the size of the nut on the stauchen bolts that pass thru the deck join. I need to know the socket size and length needed - memory says about 3/4"nut and at least 6" bolt depth.

Thanks, Roger - SV Merrily (yes she is sailing again and currently located in English Harbour Antigua)

Can you please advise when the next GAM is and its probable location in Melbourne FL (not Melbourne Vic Australia).

I have my GHP 12 hooked to an autohelm type 1 electric drive which has worked well. Like you I fit the GHP 12 to an existing drive so I have not tried the Garmin drives.
Engines and Drive Train / Original replacement prop and shaft for 44 w/o

Does anyone have the original 24x16x1.5' LH propeller and or the original shaft available for sale?
 If not, any suggestions on best sources?

Does anyone have the Garmin GHP 12 autopilot system on board? I installed one 5 yrs. ago and it has been flawless. It was mated to the original Octopus hydraulic ram with good performance. However after 23 years of use, it has finally quit and is not repairable. Has anyone installed a Garmin hydraulic pump? I could use the same ram but was wondering about the size required. The break seems to be 30,000 lbs., but that sounds like overkill since I don't plan on sailing the Indian ocean. Any advice?

Will you be going to the next one Brett?
Hull and Rig / Re: Staysail boom
« Last post by Chip on June 22, 2017, 07:45:11 PM »
I have kept the boom and added a roller furler above it. Before the furler I almost never used the staysail as I am usually single handed. It does not make a noticeable difference in sailing performance in most conditions but makes a huge difference tacking. I am considering putting traveler adjustment lines on the rail to make the stops adjustable from the cockpit.
