Disassembly of Sailboat Winch To disassemble remove the drum from the base of the winch using the screw at the bottom of the winch handle socket. Simply unscrew it pull the socket out and the drum will lift off. As you lift the drum be aware the winch roller bearing cages may momentarily stick inside the drum and could unexpectedly drop out. Make sure they dont bounce off the deck into the water. Now you can remove all the winch gears and bearings for cleaning. Even though the sailboat winch only goes back together one way it wont hurt to take a good look at everything.
And on my opinion a wooden sailboat both feels more solid. The heavier wood lets the sailboat feel more solid in the water and thus a little bit safer. A sailboat is much easier to modify than a fiberglass boat. Just in case you need adjustments to your wooden sailboat you need only lumber treated for boat use and little know-how. While with fiberglass you are looking at either an impossible job or one that will require a lot of time and money if you are going to compare it with the wooden sailboat. And if you choose this kind of sailboat make sure you have a complete inspection done of the entire boat about and below. Always keep in mind that wood will require a lot of maintenance and must frequently painted or treated to keep intact.
If you are able to find a product that has a good amount of positive as well as negative reviews then you can usually bet that a majority of the customers have been satisfied. Great Retirement Purchase Getting a sailboat is definitely something that many people have considered to be a great retirement purchase. It can be a wonderful hobby that can consume a lot of time that otherwise might go to less fruitful activities. Much like golf getting into sailing means that you are going to have a relaxing hobby that can be expensive but also allows you to spend a great deal of time enjoying it. Sailboats can be a lot of fun for retired individuals and whole families alike. If you feel that it is something that you would be interested in there is a lot to learn about sailing before ever making the purchase to make sure it is something that would hold your interest for a long period of time. Since it is a very expensive purchase you want to make sure that it truly is up your alley and is not just a fleeting idea that you may forget in a few weeks. If you change your mind you can always sell your sailboat as well.
As far as the traditional monhull sailboats that most people are familiar with the most common of all of them are the single mast sailboats. Also known as a sloop these sailboats have a single mast that is either set into or stepped to the hull or the deck of the ship. This mast supports two sails the mainsail and the headsail (sometimes referred to as the jib). The mainsail is the aft sail and the headsail is to forward sail. The catboat and the cutter are two variations of the sloop. The catboat has the mainsail at the front of the ship and the cutter holds the mast aft and can commonly feature two jibs along with the mainsail. Having a single mast sailboat is easier to control and maintain and therefore is the most common sailboat for schools and lessons.
