Default RE: iS145 vs. FT148

Hi Roger,

We are using an adjustable outhaul kit from NeilPryde.
The boom is a HPL Race carbon boom (up to 305 cm).
I don't know how many pulleys the boom end has got (our gear is in Holland right now).
We have a kind of clew "rolls" from Chinook through the clew in order to make it easier.
Maybe we should control the lines and find out if there is no "twist" or something which "blocks" the pulling of the lines.

I use such an adjustable outhaul system on the 9.0 too but I have more or less the same problem. I can pull it to some extent but than everything seems blocked which makes I cannot use it to 100 % (in my personal feeling).

I have some nice pictures of the 11.0m on the Gun mast. If you tell me how I can send it to you I will do so (personal email or something).

Thanks for all your efforts!

Karen

Hi Karen,
Are your HPL Race Booms blue in color (the grip material) or Red.
The older blue HPL booms have 4 pulleys in the rear end, the newer Red grip HPL race booms have 3 pulleys in the rear end.
Please send your photos of the 11.0 m2 on the Gun mast to:
sailquik@mindspring.com
I'll send you back some photos of different adjustable outhaul clew rigging methods for 3 and 4 pulley booms.
I'll also have a look at the NP Adj Outhaul kit to see what components they provide and maybe we can get your adj outhaul working at about half the current effort.
Hope this helps,

Hi Roger,
it's Paul again,- did you have 'sufficient' time on your IS145?
Can you please answer those questions in 1st message?
Thanks,
P

Hi Paul,
I apologise for not responding sooner, but I've been working and traveling so much lately that I have not been out on the Isonic 145.
I'm heading for Florida this week and I'm sure I'll get some time on the 145 there.
Sorry!

Hi Paul K and Karen,
I'm really sorry to disappoint..... unfortunately the Isonic 145 is one of the boards that the distributor decided to have tested by Windsurfing Magazine in the '07 board test edition.
So, the Isonic 145 now resides with the magazine testers.
I'll see if I can find a way to go over there and use the board some before they get fully into testing it.
That's the best I can do at this point.
I'll have the board back around the 1st of March, and will make it a priority to get some time on it before the sailing season starts.
Sorry,
