Re: Converting E24 Mainsail to Slab Reefing

Re: removing my bilge keels for improved windward performanc

I would like to agree with John about adding ballast to the bottom edge of the bilge plates, in my case it was in the form of 80x12mm lengths of flat steel welded on. They added a fair bit of low down weight and as a result my E24 used to suprise quite a few newer boats with her turn of speed. I mis...

Re: Sabb diesel

Hi jason thanks for the reply,

i have been trying to PM you but its not working for some reason,
i think i will try the 15/40 oil and change it a bit more often,
as to the pressure gauge,the engine is splash lubricated so no oil pressure.
regards

chris.

Re: Sabb diesel

Thanks for the reply Jason, I have been told i am worrying about nothing, as usual. the water flow is fine and the temp gauge hardly flickers even after a longish run, have you a oil pressure gauge fitted to your engine? I would like to fit one to mine but i wouldnt know where to start! regards Chris.
