  • MN3yes i was talking about the tiller arrangement
    would it be possible on a 18' or 20' cat? (i couldn't clearly see the whole system)

    does it gain or lose or change any control on the rudders?

    change - i.e. need more or less exaggerated movement to achieve the same turning radius, or other



    I think this system would work for any sized cat, and I can't perceive any difference in feel or control from the standard crossbar/tiller extension system. A simple bracket needs to be fabricated to attach to the underside of the rear beam, to provide a horizontal, flat surface for the steering arm to attach to. I had a steering arm constructed by a sheet metal guy, that just involved cutting it to shape, and doing a couple of simple bends. Control rods from the steering arm to the rudder heads/casings are aluminum tubing with Heim joints from McMaster Carr. A provision needs to be made at the top of the casing to accept a vertical bolt for the Heim joint attachment, mine had a plate welded on. If you want to pursue this, I can provide detailed photos. I was planning to make this mod for the SC20 project boat I have.

    I would love to see more detailed images if it's not too big a pita

    thanks Dave

  • I've been hooked on the joyrider TV youtube channel. Great instructional videos for a range of boats and the filming is some of the best I've ever seen. They set up 2 or 3 cameras on the boat so you can see exactly what they're talking about instead of just the one on the bridle you usually see.

  • Also, a tiger-striped foiling cat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSifr6loIJs
  • And here's a very different edit of that same outing -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zsLAPxnJjU
  • Nice videos, but the fisheye/parralax in that last one really lost me. Everything is so curved, it is like sailing in a fish bow. There is a limit to how wide the angle can be and still make sense.

  • Lake Isabella is at the southern end of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California.93240
    Nice sailing but pretty gusty sometimes, the lake is at 2500 ft elevation with some 7-8 k ft peaks around it.

    Old video but wow, water temps 43 degrees? Assume you guys were wearing dry suits(?). What time of year was this and what length of sailing season do you generally get out there? Any chance of calling someone for rescue/assistance on that lake if something breaks on you and you're too far out to swim through 43 degree waters to shore?

    thanks

    i think after some time you can no longer edit your old posts

    IF it is mission critical: you could simply contact and probably bribe Damon
