I noticed you replaced a lot of components with grade 5 titanium, do you have to worry about galvenic corrosion between dissemalar metals?
Patrick Childress Sailing
Patrick Childress Sailing - 2 years ago
Johnathan, Titanium is the more noble metal on a sailboat. Put titanium next to stainless steel and the dissimilarity is similar to stainless steel next to bronze.

Very interesting video! Thanks. What are the difference between Norseman and Stalok fittings? Can one cut the wire with hacksaw if no angle grinder available? Can you post a link to titanium for the clevis pins please or is this it? https://www.alliedtitanium.com/products/fasteners/clevispins/vupdc_Results.php
You should consider posting affiliate links for amazon related products you endorse and trust, as this will help us support you by buying them while you get a few bucks commission.

Hi Snake, They both do the job well in a slightly different way inside of the terminal. But at this point it doesn't matter as I have heard Norseman is no longer in business. However, anyone who has Norseman terminals can still get after market cones on Amazon, or is it Ebay, so not all is lost. Yes, that appears to be the link to Allied Titanium, who we have always dealt with. Thanks for the Amazon tip. I think we will do that. Rebecca can't understand why I work so hard on these videos just for the fun of it.....letting her set up those links will get her interest and involvement up. It is really better to use a hacksaw than a grinder. The grinder will create more heat affecting the chrome and possibly allowing the cut wires to rust easier.

I just bought Valiant 40 #165 SV Koyah this last month and am super excited to be her next steward! Thank you for these videos as I am sure to have to do this in the next couple years.

Congrats on your new boat. The V-40 is no speed deamon compared to modern designs but it is strong and safe. Brick House in #134 so you have a "new" boat! You are most likely aware of the very good Valiant owners site but I will put the link here just in case. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Valiant-sailboats/conversations/messages The people on the Valiant site are very experienced and helpful. Keep in touch as I would like to know about your upcoming voyages.

Loved this video. Thanks! I noticed you had white zip ties on top of your mast. Based on what you've said about those on this and other videos you may want to replace those with black ones. Great job!

Patrick Childress Sailing - 3 years ago
Very observant Matt. Maybe if I had replaced those white zip ties with black, the Windex would still be there. The base looked very weathered so I bandaged it with the white zip ties.. Approaching Chagos, birds were trying to land on top of the mast and I think that is when the Windex disappeared.

Hi Patrick, Thanks very much for the very informative video series! One question....what is the purpose of the stand-offs on the lower section of your SSB antenna?
dreupen
dreupen - 2 years ago
I just discovered that the KISS-SSB is only the grounding counterpoise. The split sliding backstay antenna is a GAM made by GAM Electronics.

Hi DIY, www.KISS-SSB .com is the company. I believe it cost just under $200. which is a lot of money for a couple wires encased in plastic but much cheaper than and less risky than insulators. We saw no change in transmissions or reception with that antenna, over the old insulated back stay arrangement, which now, May 2018, the KISS has been on for about 9 years. We just arrived in Rodrigues making it about 2 months for being out of internet service to get on You Tube. I just replied to your and Nicks comments on the last video about departing Sri Lanka and your GRIB comment. Thanks for pointing out my lack of clarity but Nick did pick up on and did express my thoughts. The SSB is really becoming an antiquated piece of equipment and the Pactor modem we no longer use.

Thanks, Garry. The easy part was taking down, making and installing the new back stay. The very difficult part was making the video! That took at least 3 times longer.
