Any Empty bay

by argonaut » 21 May 2018, 21:14

I don't have too many pics of both me and my boat - on Sunday a guy took a pic from his house onto a glorious & empty bay - only a snap with a phone through a window - but that bay stacks up against any.
Fantastic weather - superb w/end and devoid of boats

Both my boat (Argo2) and me riding SkySki behind it.

That's a beautiful bay and wow, what a view.

Great shot of you.

How's the trailer?

Lovely.

Your a hardier man than I am. Whilst air temperature was good the sea temp needs to increase before tempting me in the water even with my thick wetsuit and fleece liner on (I know, I am a whimp)

Been in water with a 3mm wet suit on for past 3 weeks ..... its 14 degrees now ... shorties in about 2 weeks.

Still same :(

I removed all Bowden cables last night, picking up 4 new stainless steel versions today .... will try set up again on Friday.
If one or more of them were sticking, may have caused an issue.


Will also lubricate the shoe expander mechanisms .... previously just reinstalled clean but no lube.
Been advised that Al-Ko suggest Castrol Moly Lithium grease, will try and find some (assume waterproof trailer hub grease not suitable.)

Hubs been off so many times in past 3 weeks, ought to use Velcro not split pins.

Spoke to a mobile trailer service guy (wrong area to use him) he has come across autoreverse problems before, that could not be fixed ... ended up fitting a clip to prevent braking when reversing ... as things used to be before auto-reverse mechanisms.


The following file may be of use ..... best description so far on how to set up brakes:
