Mainsheet Technical Articles


Tom Sokoloski
 

Ahoy!
It's that time again. I'm looking for C400 tech articles to run in the next Mainsheet Magazine. You don't have to be a Pulitzer Prize winning writer, or the most brilliant engineer in the world. Have an upgrade you've done recently to your pride and joy? Solved a problem that's been bugging you for a while?  Jot it down and send it to me. I can help with editing, formatting, etc. A picture or two would be great, too. Time's running out. Act now! It's YOUR magazine and association. Thanks!!

Tom - 

I just finished replacing both holding tanks and all head hoses on Larimar, 1995 C400 hull #16.  I’d be glad to do a write up… I could list all of the components I used, with links to the websites where I purchased them (total materials cost ~$1000 - $1200), and 2 days), and I have some pictures.  Would this be of interest?

Sure.  I fear the same task is in my future.  We have a 1998 #126.    

The "clean out" port have been blown out and resealed but not well resealed, so this project is looming soon for us

I'd love to see your article on this. On my long list of to-do, might make short list sooner than I'd hope it would.

Hi Sean,
I now have C400 Windmist II, hull #17, so one just after yours, and would love to hear how you went about changing tanks and hoses.  I recently replaced all of my hatches and portlights due to crazing of the lenses.  I am interested to learn about all of the refits you have found necessary to do on your end.  My next project is a water pump rebuild due to a seal leak.
Best regards,
