I had a univeral joint seperation at Candlestick on Sunday. (Had this
happen once at 3rd too about 2 years ago). The internal screw came
loose. Lucky for me I was by the pier near shore. I was water starting
when it happened. I would say this is my fault for not checking my gear
enough before hitting the water. In my excitement I overlooked the
usual visual/physical check over. From now on I plan to take my
universal apart for a check up at least 3-4 times during the sailing
season. Probably best to replace every 3-4 years depending on how
often you sail. wrote:
