    SAILBOAT 35' 1983 CHEOY LEE (PERRY) 35

    Bottom paint. I'm going to go at it with a scraper first. I use the blade from a hand plane and use hockey tape to make a big knob on the end like you would, well, on a hockey stick. By keeping it razor sharp I find I can usually get under the paint and rip off a good strip of paint in one stroke. That and finish up with pull scrapers, RA sander and DA sander. If the paint proves too tenacious I'll look into soda blasting but I could use the workout. My arms look like spaghetti compared to Kris Cringle and SailforBeer. And the good luck continues. Just got an email that I won an online contest for 50% off (of their online store price I guess) a Mantus Anchor. Woo Hoo! Now I would need maybe a 35# or a 45# at most and even at 50% off I'm probably too cheap to spring for a S.S. version. Anyone out there thinking about a big ass Mantus?

    I think I'm in the same boat. So, what did you end up using for paint? I'm really thinking that repainting with something repairable is going to be in my future.

    Okay, so I got lucky! Browsing cheoyleeassociation.com I found this page buried in the site: http://www.cheoyleeassociation.com/C.Lee/CLHome.htm The whole website looks horribly outdated and is painful to navigate and I couldn't find anything that would indicate how old the information was. For all I knew this could be ancient history. But the photos of the hardware stockpile were enough to encourage me to email Cheoy Lee in Hong Kong. In the wee hours of the night I received a reply from Jonathan Cannon with this picture attached. The one on the right is mine! They even came in different sizes, who knew? Yay ! I'm going to try to fire up the Universal M40 diesel this weekend. I hope my luck holds up.

    This may be the Holy Grail of old Cheoy Lee hardware! Please let it be so.

    My daughter works right next door to them in Florida! I think all the offer now are big power yachts, like 100'+.

    At my daytime job we sell cutting tools to machine shops. I'll ask the salesmen if they have any place that they call on who might be able to quote one. I wasn't looking forward to taking on the aft one off. Did you check out the both screw heads?

    Still might be able to tell. How about torx or even better triple square.

    Just noticed none of the slots are indexed. I'll put that at the top of my punch list.

    I'm not sure that any casting company that's still in Mass is going to be economical. I'll DAGS and see what I can find.

    I have Maxwell 18 non self tailing winches on the mast. Don't tell my wife or daughter if you get the 28 self tailers, they will want electric! Here are some pis of the midships chocks Hope that helps. From the second floor window... As you can see I'm missing a piece of toerail and a Cheoy Lee custom bow chock. A reward to anyone who finds me one. I need this. It's what I'll call a left hand, it would fit on the port bow or starboard aft. BOLO! Here's a right hand, starboard bow or port stern.
