Which top-down furler do I choose for my 25ft sports boat?

One of key our principles is to offer a good selection of hardware and rigging options with high quality technical information to give you the details you need to make informed product choices. So, let’s take this recent customer question and see where it leads us when we compare the options from the Karver, Facnor and Ronstan furler ranges. Karver is one of the best known furler brands and has a reputation for lightweight performance and is in use on a lot of grand prix race boats as well as cruising boats. The smallest top-down unit they supply is the KSF1 with a Safe Working Load (SWL) of 1500kg which is definitely more than we need on our 25ft asymmetric. Key stats: Facnor does have a smaller unit, the FX+900 with a SWL of 900kg. Facnor has a philosophy on top-down furling where they sacrifice some weight but use top-down adaptors on standard bottom-up furling drums. This allows you to use the same drum for multiple sails reagrdless of whether they are top-down or bottom-up. Unfortunately, for some reason, they do not have a top-down adaptor for the FX+900 and only start at the next size up, the FX+1500 with a SWL of 1500kg – which is the equivalent unit to the K...

So let’s get this out of the way right now: We’re not here to suggest that

So let’s get this out of the way right now: We’re not here to suggest that the internal-combustion engine is dead. Far from it. We attend Rotating Mass every day just like you. But neither should a good performance enthusiast ignore what is happening beyond the world of the holy grail of the four-stroke cycle. Electric cars. There, we said it. Just let that settle in for a moment before you begin banging your keyboard to pen that poison email. This story is not about green posturing or carbon footprints. This is HOT ROD, and we’re about performance, but it’s time to acknowledge that electric cars have arrived and can perform. We intend to offer several very different examples of electric race cars for your perusal. Dismiss them if you like, but frankly, unless you can set the new world record for Pikes Peak, win the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a hybrid prototype, or run low-8s in the quarter-mile in a door-slammer, then perhaps it’s worthwhile to at least know something about these electron-powered machines, because all of those mentioned achievements have already occurred. We’re just going to scratch the surface of what’s happening out there in the world of volts, amps, and watts....

Standpipes 101, Part 1: A Beginner’s Guide to Standpipe Firefighting

The late Andy Fredericks once said: “Standpipe systems are like a big black hole. You put water in one end and hope that water will come out the other end.” That is the God’s honest truth when it comes to fire protection systems. Standpipes are one of the most misunderstood aspects in firefighting for most of the fire service. Unless you work in New York City, Chicago, or other major metropolitan cities that fight fire in high-rise or standpipe-equipped buildings on a regular basis, chances are you know little about these systems. These systems are complex: Anything that can go wrong most likely will go wrong. I’ve been fortunate to listen to the who’s-who in standpipe and high-rise firefighting world multiple times: Bill Gustin, Dave McGrail, Ray McCormack, John Ceriello, Dennis LeGear, and so on. These experts mostly work in different regions of the country and all operate somewhat differently. However, so much of standpipe firefighting is the same no matter where you go, as long as that is an experienced, standpipe-using fire department. Much of the country is inexperienced in standpipe firefighting, but standpipe-equipped buildings are becoming more and more common throughou...

Fu il sarto personale dell’ Imperatrice  Eugenie, moglie di Napoleone III, a far indossare alle attrici Sarah Bernardt e Lillie Langtry, con audacia e spudoratezza, i suoi abiti talmente stretti in vita e gonfi sulle terga da caratterizzare la tipica silhouette a “S” tanto di moda nel periodo Vittoriano. E sapete chi mai fosse stato il sarto di cui sopra? Charles Frederick Worth, imprenditore del Lincolnshire che da titolare di una minuscola sartoria divenne, nel giro di pochi anni, la prima casa di high fashion con sede a Parigi. Come punto di riferimento di ogni creazione c’era immancabilmente il leggendario corsetto coi lacci che oggi un giovane stilista italiano, incaricato di rilanciare l’antica Maison, ha riesumato facendone il perno portante della collezione. Lui è Marco Bedin, direttore creativo di Worth. Dal 1952, la casa di moda inizialmente a carattere familiare, navigava da un lido all’altro del fashion occupandosi di abbigliamento, oggettistica e profumi (il famosissimo Je Reviens attualmente in commercio).

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — LEDs are dominating the lighting market with their versatility and cost-effectiveness. Does

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — LEDs are dominating the lighting market with their versatility and cost-effectiveness. Does that mean people should ride on this trend? Will these nontraditional light bulbs lead us to a more economical and eco-friendly future? This report hopes to shed some “LED light” on the matter. LED stands for light-emitting diode, an electric component that glows when connected to direct current. The predecessor to LED lights, which was discovered in 1907, was yellowish. However, it was not until 1994 that LED lighting was commercialized. By that time, scientists had figured out how to produce LED light with multiple colors at low cost. By 2018, the global LED indoor lighting market was a US$15.87 billion industry. In comparison with its incandescent and fluorescent predecessors, LED lightbulbs enjoy a longer lifespan. Per market standards, LED lamps last up to 40,000 hours compared to 10,000 and 1,000 hours for fluorescent and incandescent lamps, respectively. LEDs also save more energy, with an 800-lumen LED bulb only consuming 9 to 12 watts, 5 times less than an incandescent one. LED lightbulbs reach their maximum luminosity the moment they are turned on. A...
