  1. Re-read this thread. Yes if your rake measurement is 48" and your mast base is an inch back, you're going to have a very sloppy rig. Lots of local knowledge so I'm sure you'll get this sorted.
  2. The extra inch will make a huge difference. Alternative is to keep the mast base further forward and add aft chocking to induce bend if that's what you want to do.
  3. Looks like there must be aft chocking to get the rig that vertical. How much?
  4. Yes older boat shorter headstay. But that's to offset the fact the keels tended to be further forward so moving the rig forward balances the boat out. The mast should "fit" within the parameters you've provided. Maybe check and make sure for some crazy reason the mast wasn't shortened an inch at the base? Then again if the helm is balanced after shortening 1" to 45" you sound go-to-go. BTW... 45" for a max forward keel boat would not be out of line. Do you have a fore and aft partner chocks?
  5. Great idea! Not sure it’s be worth the rating hit.
  6. What does the smart money do to add indicators to their jib tracks. Deck is being redone so options are wide open. Put down a contrasting color, lay down temporary stick-on numbers, paint with the final color, peel away the numbers? Stencil on numbers? Simple vinyl numbering? Clearcoat to follow? Any and all suggestions appreciated. Fix It Anarchy too.

  8. Was looking at the wrong Maretron items. Looks like their micro 90-degree female adapter will do it also. https://www.maretron.com/products/pdf/Micro Bulk Field Datasheets.pdf
  9. Thanks. Didn't see that. Is it just the connector or connector/drop cable combination?
  10. Getting reading to make a mast mount for a pair of B&G Triton2s. Thought I'd try and be clever about this and went looking for 90-degree elbow connectors. Only ones I found were from Ancor so ordered two. Oops. Turns out the notch orients the plug upward from the display unit. Anyone know of a connector with the notch in the southeast quadrant with the elbow pointed down? Or any other way to deal with this? Without having to do a custom field installation.
  11. Got to chuckle. Hopefully for the price, the Festool Rotex is not a general purpose sander.
  12. 80. Using the existing finish as a guide coat.
  13. Been removing a Baltoplate finish with Festool 6" sander, interface pad, Granat paper with shop vac and cyclone separator. I'm making progress but it's a slow go. Most folks rave about the Granat paper certainly as an all-purpose abrasive. But is it my best choice for bottom paint? And in re-reading the description, maybe I should lose the interface pad.
  14. Perfecto! Someone's answered the question, "Anyone aware of PHRF committees that allow for one configuration when racing spinnakered (fully crewed) and a different configuration under non-spinnaker?".
  15. No different than now. If you can read a scratch sheet you'll know who your competition is
