    CS36, C&C 33-2, Ericson 35-3, Cal 33-2...

    This boat was the prototype and as such was built in the custom shop. Construction and interior differs from the production version. At some point in time the current owner, enclosed the head. I would seriously consider this boat.

    WIGGERS old Sailboat Moulds

    It would still be much cheaper to take my boat or another back to Wiggers and have a stem to stern refit. Most likely the molds this gentleman has are for the Star 30. The cruising variant.

    Wiggers built my Andrews 30. Most certainly this boat was built on a male mold and its landfill by now.

    Lewmar Ocean Hatch Repair

    I have an older lewmar ocean series hatch with worn stainless pins that the lid articulates up and down on in its aluminum housing. Lewmar’s website sells the catch block and friction lever kit and few other parts, but no mention of replacement hinge pins. Anybody have any experience with this repair?

    Lewmar Ocean Hatch Repair

    Got what? Stainless hinge pins? It also appears there was some type of plastic bearing to keep the stainless from wearing on the aluminum. Is that correct?

    ID this PHRF low budget ride

    Do you happen to know how he came up with the name of Flak?

    ID this PHRF low budget ride

    I now own Flak. I looked at buying Absolute, but decided Flak was the better all around boat. Condition wise not so much, but this year is a write off so it made "some" sense to take on a project a quarter of the way into the season. What ever became of Brian?

    Runner Block Replacements

    They make runner socks or padded covers specifically for this application. Why reinvent the wheel...
  19. The boat is Viper 830, the mast is carbon and I have a fractional code zero I would like to fly from a masthead spinnaker halyard that stops at a spectacle just above the fore-stay. My reason for doing it this way is I have the ability to run, two mast head spin halyards, rather then add a sheave box above the fore-stay. Any thoughts or experience doing it this way? What should I use for a spectacle to stop the halyard above the fore-stay?

    Brokers - worth it? (probably)

    I just sold my 14k J/27. Considering a broker wasn't an option seeing there just wouldn’t be much left after they took their commission. In the end, I sold the boat for full asking price. Not because I’m a super seller or marketer, but the boat showed well and could not be duplicated for the price I was asking.

    J27 Sails

    I have a Ullman Dacron #3 if you’re interested. It’s in very good condition. I never used it as I had a laminate sail built.

    Asym Sheet Length Question

    I just purchased a Viper 830 and need to upgrade the running rigging. I'd like to do this over the winter, but am reluctant as I wont be able to sail the boat, to see if the current rigging lengths are correct. I measured the old sheets and they are 55' w/ 12' of taper each, which seems on the short side. Could the peanut gallery please chime in with thoughts or any riggers with a best practice method for determining length please pipe up? A internet search turns up 2x boat length for symmetrical kites and 2.5 boat length for asymmetrical kites. The Viper is 28' long and we companionway launch the kite. Thanks!
