On infinity we can carry 5000 liters one thing we do after a rough passage is polish the fuel .It is amazing how much crap you can get in your diesel
cameron Gibbs
cameron Gibbs - 1 year ago
+Patrick Childress Sailing we have a racor set up with a pump that polishes the diesel we use biocide .I think it i s more that the previous owner didn't bother .We have large hatches that go into the tank one day we will drain it and give it a good clean
Patrick Childress Sailing
Patrick Childress Sailing - 1 year ago
How do you polish the fuel? Normally a Racor is a "polisher". If there is junk in the fuel tanks it is from not using enough biocide to kill the growth. It is like not adding a little bleach to a fresh water tank so muck will eventually grow.

The only time I have hove to was just to kill time but it was in pleasant weather. In absolutely terrible weather, 50 knots and more, I have found it better to actively sail; whether into the wind or off the wind. Any boat I have been on, heaving to would put the boat too broadside to the waves. But every boat is different and a lot of people have their own opinions. And then what is "bad weather" worthy of heaving to is another sailors reason to sail on and make good time. I have never used a para anchor. I once asked a sailor named Webb Chiles if he ever used one and he said once he experimented with a drogue which was given to him but it held the boat too firm to the waves or allowed the boat to back up slamming the rudder. He said there was no way he could retrieve the para anchor so cut it loose. In sailing around the world 5 times, he has never seen the need for one. Only once have I come close to using a drogue and I believe a long, long, line looped off of one stern cleat to the other stern clean would have worked well enough. That is after getting down to bare poles and taking down the Bimini, we were still doing 10 knots on Brick House. But the weather never got any worse so we pressed on.

Another great video Patrick 're the cars I managed to get 4 second good strong ally one's off eBay for £12 . So I have to on each track with two sheets each side . Luckily I have two winches each side but I have used the mooring cleats on the back works fine. Just keep an eye out for cheap cars. That gauge on the record great idea.

Michael Simpson

For the temporary attachments to the Jib sheet, or any other rope for that matter, you could try using a Prusik knot, or a Klemheist. They're both climbers knots which lock onto the line when under tension but come loose fairly readily when tension is released. The Klemheist is slightly easier to release. You would need a short continuous loop for the either knot and attach your temporary line back to the cleat via a carabiner. Might be easier (to release) than the hitch your currently employing. Kind regards, Michael.
Patrick Childress Sailing
Patrick Childress Sailing - 1 year ago
I will look up those knots. Thanks for the tip.

It's the age old adage, "there's too much wind or, not enough wind or, the wind is just right, but from the wrong direction!

I have followed many sailing channels, mostly based on where the boat is going. I stumbled up your channel today, looked up your web site to see where you are going. The Indian Ocean to South Africa, perfect! This will be good so I am subscribed now too. Enjoy your travels!

+Patrick Childress Sailing There is nothing in particular I want to see. It is the entire area that is of interest to me. Few people visit the area so everything is of interest. You've been to Chagos and Rodrigues, where I had to stop watching last night. I'll catch up later. I'm going to go back too, to see what you saw in Sri Lanka. I've been there years ago. It is always interesting to see what a place looks like today. Cheers,

George, Right now we are in Dar Es Salaam. Soon we will move up to Zanzabar. Tanzania was never on our radar. After talking to several S. African cruisers, they gave us all the reasons in the world to come here. Tanzania is a fun place. There is no rush to get to S. Africa. Is there anything in particular you would like to see about this are in a video?

Use the lazy sheet onto the mid ship cleat to relieve the load while you adjust the jib car. Works for me.

Patrick Childress Sailing - 2 years ago

For ocean currents take a look at https://earth.nullschool.net. Many weather options avail incl. ocean currents. Most data very up to date but I think ocean current only refreshed every few days or so. Great site to play around with incl 500 mb charts.
Safe Sailing
Safe Sailing - 2 years ago
Patrick Childress I only use nullschool on my Apple phone so I don’t know if interface diff on computer screen. But on phone you simply use finger to rotate globe to chosen spot then widen two fingers to zoom in. Gets pretty granular with geo detail. To change weather data settings press “earth” button on bottom of screen and menu appears. Lots of options. Only prob I can see is that predict wind data also avail via satellite (correct?) while nullschool only avail thru internet connection (at least I don’t think data avail thru satellite linkage).
Patrick Childress Sailing
Patrick Childress Sailing - 2 years ago
SS, Thanks for sending the link. I will play with it some more over the next couple days. Maybe I can figure how to zoom in. The Predictwind current charts get very detailed for small areas. nullschool, so far, seems to be a more global rendition.
Safe Sailing

Patrick, instead of attaching secondary line with rolling hitch (and later problem undoing knot), could you cleat lazy sheet instead? Seems simpler as long as sheets long enough. Just a thought
Patrick Childress Sailing
Patrick Childress Sailing - 2 years ago
Great. Next week we leave Rodrigues for Mauritius so I should have a chance to try it out.
Safe Sailing
Safe Sailing - 2 years ago
Patrick Childress Right on, that’s it!
Patrick Childress Sailing
Patrick Childress Sailing - 2 years ago
That is an interesting idea. I think what you mean is to bring the port sheet over to the starboard side and use that to secure to the cleat instead of securing a line to the working sheet with the rolling hitch, then to the cleat. If so, that is a great idea. Then the working sheet can be eased to move the block. Is this what you were thinking? I went through a few complicated variations of this in my head but this seems very workable.

Wow the Indian Ocean, Awesome! I like that idea with the travel jib car block with the line ran back to the cockpit so stopping having to go up on deck so much. Enjoyed the video and look forward to more... Here's wishing you fair winds and following seas
Patrick Childress Sailing
Patrick Childress Sailing - 2 years ago
Thanks for the positive feedback, Coastal Boy. I used to deliver Swan sailboats from Rhode Island to St. Maarten and all those boats had very nice adjustable jib cars. It is helpful to sail on a lot of different boats to get these ideas!
Stephen Mason
Stephen Mason - 2 years ago
When you want to move the block why don't you just roll the jib in and adjust without any pressure. When you want to move the block, you generally want to adjust the amount of sail you want out. So to me it seems like a lot simpler to roll in adjust the block and roll out again
Patrick Childress Sailing
Patrick Childress Sailing - 2 years ago
Thanks Stephen for the comment. Rolling up the jib then moving the jib block is an option. On our boat, on long passages, furling and unfurling in strong wind can cause some unneeded luffing and wearing on the sail. When we roll up the jib in strong winds, I generally head down wind to do so to take pressure off the sail for easier furling and to keep the jib from luffing and damaging itself. But all that slows us down. I have always tried to keep the boat moving, like racers would do to keep their boat moving, in the right direction while moving the block. It is good to know all the options available especially if one does not have a jib block movable from the cockpit.
Steve Olson

Maybe instead of using a rolling hitch on the jib sheet, have a carabiner attached to that line and attach it directly to the clew?  That way you could remove it easily.
Patrick Childress Sailing
Patrick Childress Sailing - 2 years ago
That would work with our 90% but the clew of our 120 would be out of reach. Certainly it could work on a different boat. Last November I delivered a Swan 53, for Offshore Passage Opportunities, from Rhode Island to St. Marteen. That was the first Swan I have been on that did not have a jib block adjustable from the cockpit. That was such a large jib I was thinking if we ever had to move the jib car we would have to roll up the entire sail!
Steve Olson
Steve Olson - 2 years ago
Just thinking...if you sheeted it in tight, it shouldn't be too far outboard.
Patrick Childress Sailing
Patrick Childress Sailing - 2 years ago
A carabiner is a good idea. That would be better than the
rolling hitch as long as the clew is not too high or far out of reach.  Hmm, maybe some sort of belaying devise or
ascender, but I am not that familiar with rock climbing equipment.
