Deck layout Beneteau First 34.7

Recommended Posts

I am looking for the Beneteau First 34.7 deck layout. In particular her inhauler systems for both genoa and jib.

Anyone who can help?

What are you looking for?

as far as I know the 34.7 comes with barbers for both genoa and jib. I'd like to see the set up and emulate it on my boat

The set up in the manual is incomplete.

I will have to go take a picture and measure the strops.

I will post when I get a chance to do that.

Apparently the most effective use of the jib inhaulers requires moving the forward track to the cabin top. I think some of the Estonian boats did this, but it might be rating system dependent. Definitely TWS average dependent.

There are/were photos of the inhauler setups on the 34.7 facebook page

I tried to make a drawing but can't seem to get the correct format. I will work on it.

The jib strop is 93 inches or 236 cm.

The gen strop is 30 inch or 76 cm approximately.

There 22 inch or 56 cm between the had points where the 3 blocks are mounted.

I had to play with the sizes to get it to function ok. It would be better if the hard points where farther apart.

I have always wondered if the forward track was mounted too far out to the rail.

Any questions ask away.

Your set up is waaaaaay different

My jib inhaulers are ziptied to the mast bail because I don't use them.

Seriously?  We find the 3 to be dogshit slow without them.

Sorry I don’t have any decent pictures. Our inhaulers for the 3 exit from the little yellow circle and go back to a similar purchase setup already shown. We don’t use any for the 1.

We don't have a jib that will fit to use the forward inhaulers. The smallest we have is a 105 which sheets just aft of the shrouds. If I had a 100 I would move the tracks to the cabin top and use the forward inhaulers from there. All our other sails use the aft inhaulers, the 0 uses tweakers which sort of act as inhaulers due to the sheeting point.

Do you have a picture or drawing of this set-up?

We were experimenting with our #3 today with a temporary set up to sheet the sail inside the shrouds and it worked well.

Go look at the 34.7 Facebook page. There were photos posted in response to similar questions. Basically, determine where on the cabin top you want the forward track, then move it there. Don't skimp on the backing plate.

No link, but look under "Discussions" at April 18, 2019.

That's just one way of doing it.

Meaning that's just one way of mounting the track.

I don't think I would do it that way (???), but maybe that particular set up gives the greatest amount of lateral adjustment

Thanks for the info.

I had to reboot my XXXXbook account as I have not looked at it for a long while.

Wow.... all this to race PHRF.

It is much worse than you think.

We agonize over changes that would likely only give minuscule performance improvements, like less than 1 percent .

We overspend on sails and lines that until recently had to be considered disposable after a short life span.

We paint our hulls with the latest go fast magic and then sand it all off.

Hours are spent recruiting, training and encouraging crew to donate their finite time.

All to come in behind some one who is a much better driver or caught the lucky shift.

Did I mention that as the owner/skipper most of the labor and all of the bills to keep this enterprise going  fall to you.

Weird huh!

Still it is the most fun you can have at just above walking speed.

I enjoy the company of my crew and most other racers.

I has been very interesting learning how important volunteers are to the function of an organization. 

I hope to keep it up as long as I can.

I hope to spread the joy of this sport/pastime/addiction.
