If you are considering buying a sailboat or learning more about the buying process, start with a simple online search. You will soon discover that there many different types and sizes of sailboats. Determine what kind of sailing you will be doing and look for a sailboat type that provides a good fit. You can search through articles, wikis, and forums in your search for sailboat information.
The sailboat cruiser is interested in having fun, being safe, and enjoying the fellowship with other boaters... in a stationary situation. It is very hard to have cocktails or enjoy conversation while the boat is moving... as it is when you are sailboat racing. Sailboat cruising versus sailboat racing is as different as day and night. I would not normally compare circumnavigation to sailboat cruising... but rather use it to illustrate a point. I had a conversation with Bill Pinckney a few months after he had become the first African-American to circumnavigate the globe alone. I asked him what was the secret to successful circumnavigation. His answer was very simplistic..." You have to stay healthy and you have to stay on board"...very similar to how to enjoy sailboat cruising. Tacking is a maneuver performed many times in the course of a sailboat race... I asked Pinckney how many times he tacked going around the world... he thought about it for a minute and replied..."Once, I think". Sailboat cruising versus sailboat racing... very different, one is a lifestyle... the other is a competitive sport.
After soaking, take the small brush and work off any old grease from the winch component. Dont forget to clean the winch gear ring on the inside of the drum. Now that youve removed the grease and grime, rinse the parts in hot water to remove the mineral spirits. If the spirits are left on, it breaks down the grease. Dry the parts with a clean rag or paper towel. Reassembly of Sailboat Winch As you put the gears back into place, take a close look at how the pawls are working. If they dont open and close smoothly, then the drum could spin backwards. If theres any question that the pawls are not working properly, it is much easier to replace them and the little springs. It is very important NOT to grease the pawls because grease causes them to stick. And if they stick, the gears wont engage. To lubricate your pawls, use any light oil that might be on hand; something like a 3 & 1 oil.
Although your RC Sailboat may be small enough to fit into your hand, or so large as to require a trailer to transport it, all radio control model sailboats are built in the same order as full size boats. The first stage is to form the hull, which must have space in it to accommodate the servo motors, batteries, and other gear. After float testing to determine the optimum position for the keel, you complete the hull by installing the controls that will allow you control the model sailboat remotely. Thereafter you fit the masts and spars, and install the sails and rigging.
