Please note that the measured endpoints are not cc-measures. /peter För er som är intresserade så har jag nu måtten på vanten. Du måste mäta från lagerytan på det ena ändstycket till lagerytan på ...

And I agree with Peter J about language use, so I removed the post he commented since it added no value.

Re: Urgent!!! Need Help! Rudder / tiler play small vibration when sailing in a good breeze

If you look a a flag in heavy wind you notice how it moves. I believe it is this is what you experience when water passes your rudder. You can not remove this vibration, only modify it´s frequence. If you modify the back edge of your rudder to become only a few mm wide with sharp edges the frequence...

Re: Volvo MD7B warning lights

If the engine is overheated the cooling water will be boiling and the engine temp will exceed 100 degrees, i.e. water dropped on it will also boil. Have you checked that the ther...
