    Mast vegetation??

    New boat, it has vegetation or some kind of lichen on the standing rigging and a glob of something green and growing at the top of the mast. What is it and how do I get rid of it? The concern is that it is weakening the rigging - and it's gross. Boat lives in freshwater in Alabama - stuff grows here. I thought about using bleach, but again, probably not such a good idea on the wire rigging - Thx. I'll try to post some pics of it later.
  2. Riggers, Rope Gurus, Splicing Geeks, I'm looking for some comments and criticisms on mooring bridle/pendant hybrid I'm working on. Yes, that is one piece of line. That allows me to not be limited to a length due to bury requirements. No, not all the splices have been sewn, I don't like the biggest thread I have in my supplies right now. The buried section will have extra flotation in order to keep things from wrapping on the ball. I'm in a spot where I see a far amount of wind against current. The current "Y" bridle using 3 separate lines make the whole thing is so long that the ball will wind up aft of my keel (high aspect) and that's bad. I'm working off a setup my mooring provider came up with, but he has never worked with Tenex TEC before. I do all the rigging work on my boat and am helping him to come up with possibly a better mouse trap. --Matt Boat - 30' & ~7000 lbs Materials - 5/8" Tenex TEC; HD Suncor 316 SS Fed Spec thimble
  3. I picked up an old 5o5 on a trade last year. I normally crew on "Tigger," an FT10, up on the Puget Sound. I haven't rigged a boat before and the previous owner stripped the boat down and refinished the hull. I know these are technical boats and I'm probably in over my head. I have a couple friends who are willing to help me do the work who have rigged larger boats but the 5o5's seem to have a lot of nuances and a very class specific set up. I'm just wondering if there is anyone local who might be willing to give me some advice on rigging this thing. If I could drive it somewhere and bring a permanent marker and a notebook and just pick someone's brain for a bit I would beyond grateful. A little more about the boat, it's hull #5973. I have all the rigging that came off the boat minus lines, sheets, halyards. It came with two sets of sails, one of which hasn't been used. It came with a trailer with the removable dolly. If I can't get in contact with anyone local I'd appreciate any advice I can get to make this happen.

    Swage Stops

    I am running a second hand Etchells 22 jib on my H-boat 27 and it is a few inches longer on the luff than my boat's halyard was setup for. My halyard is wire to rope with a swage barrel stop that catches on a track with a magic block setup for luff tension adjusting. Since my jib is taller the stop no longer lands on the track. I am not super familiar with swages. Can you come after the fact with a stop and crimp it on the cable? Or should I cut off the end of the cable and shorten it?
  5. Has anyone see/heard of this? Thoughts? Check out VMG TENSION TOOL on #indiegogo!
  6. Hi all, New member here with a question about the construction of the Low Friction Ring on a Dyneema loop. For a winter time project, I've decided to learn to splice Dyneema lines working up to making soft-shackles and my own low-friction rings with the dyneema loops. e.g. Can someone explain to me how these are made? Is a continuous loop first made and then seized using dyneema whipping twine to secure the ring? Thanks for your help and for letting me join. Christine

    Thistle Running Rigging

    Does anyone have a suggested list of diameter, lengths and material suggested for a Thistle? I just bought one and looks like all I have is a main halyard. FUN!

    DIY Wing Mast Questions

    Guys, I've been curious about wing masts for ages, & am wondering what the more common methods for attaching stays & shrouds are any more? I know that on say PRB there are holes through the mast tube for Spectra (Dyneema) Loops, to which the stays are attached. And on other boats there are stainless rotator hounds. The question is, what's the most reliable method of attaching one's stays, including a furler for the jib? How often do various components need swapping so that the mast doesn't suffer any failures & fall? Plus any other key questions I forgot to ask/need to know when seriously considering building one. Obviously the tech & options as to how to attach shrouds, stays, & other structural bits have advanced quite a bit in the last few years. With a plethora of options for soft attachments using Dyneema, & fittings akin to Ropeye & other soft padeyes. That said, please pretend that I know naught about what's available, & help me to get educated on this. Both self-educated, & schooled by wizened sailors & riggers. Bottom line, what are the better routes to pursue if starting from scratch, to build a DIY wing mast for a cat or tri in the 30'-45' LOA range? Also, what are the pro's & con's of various options & configurations. And any & all links to relavent info pages, or hardware connected to this topic would be greatly welcomed. Thanks! PS: I'm thinking wood/epoxy, or wood/epoxy with some carbon. But not a purely carbon spar. With halyards for a: mainsail, jib, solent/staysail, code 0/screecher, & a spinnaker. And structural furlers are an option to some degree. Oh, & I'm primarily thinking of designs setup for synthetic rigging. Although wire stays aren't ruled out.

    Dynex Dux vs. New England STS

    I've done plenty of splicing and mucking around with 12-strand but I've not handled or spliced Dynex Dux or STS. Both are heat stretched dyneema and both have very similar specs. I'm approaching a wire replacement project. Any meaningful differences in these two products? Thanks.
  10. I'm looking to see if anyone has successfully moved the spinn halyard hoist higher on a fractional rig? If so how did you do it? The boat is an Impala 28 and we need bigger kite to improve offwind speed. I want to get the sail area as high as I can without damaging the rig. In the pic (not my boat) you can see the upper mast is light on support so two questions; 1. How high can I go and still have strength? + especially on tight reach + section at top is approx 2 meters 2. What is the best method of getting the halyard hoist higher? + external halyard on block? + move existing sheave? Racing is under IRC, mix of W/L and round the cans. 75% of races under 15knts and mostly flat water or small chop. Competition is J24's, Quarter Tonners, Formula 28's... Thoughts please :-)

    Strange sounds from the boat

    Hi guys i'm a new member from Denmark (english is my second language obviously) I bought the boat a some months back, and have been out sailing a couple of times, but now i got a pretty serious issue (i think, i'm afraid to go sailing again before I how serious it is). During af sailing trip (wind was about 6m/s at the time) a strange sound began to occur. However, only when the wind come from the port side. When I got into the harbor again the sound was still there, it comes and disappears. I suspect some issues with the port side shrouds, as the sound was only there when i have the wind coming in from portside. When I was in port I could feel the shrouds at the same time as the sound. I discovered that they vibrated a little easily when the sound was there. when i got back in the harbor i recorded the sound (just follow the link) Have you guys heard this sound before? Thank you in advance Sincerely A distressed sailor

    Wooden Mast & rigging

    Hey all, I have a Mower-style Alpha Dory complete hull just need to get mast, spars, rigging and sails. Can anyone recommend a shop or shops in the Chicago area or even Southern Michigan area? This is an 18'6" boat that is most traditionally gaff rigged. Thanks all! BTW she's also for sale if somebody wants to finish they way they want it.
