  1. Both. Separate boom tangs from gooseneck toggle and as a wear plate under gooseneck clevis pin ring-ding (which really should be a cotter pin)
  2. No surveyor will take apart woodwork to get to the problem areas. Owner has to do all that
  3. Yes. Move your viewpoint aft until you remove the sprdr sweep angle - now the outer shroud should pass straight down thru sprdr tips and chainplate
  4. On normal discontinuous rigging D = diagonal, V is vertical So - D1 is lower shroud. V1 is lowest segment of upper shroud (deck to low spreader) D2 is intermediate Low spdr tip to mast at base of upper spdr) V2/D3 is upper shroud from tip of low sprdr, thru tip of upper sprdr, then to mast. No joint at upper spdr tip, just bending over sprdr. If there IS a joint there, than you have a V2 and a D3 separately
  5. The chainplates need to be placed so that the upper shrouds (V1, V2/D3) are in a straight line from masthead to deck. 18" is an extreme rake, double check that.
  6. Please inspect the bolt going thru the toggle. There seems to be threads exposed inside the tang plate. As there is an extension tang welded to the original strap, that plate should be a lot closer to the t/b toggle. And less gap there is stronger, anyway. It's OK if thread stick out from the nylock nuts - the forward nut also does not seem to be fully engaged
  7. Written to prevent the injection of 'new' substance, not the ablation of a existing substance. Boats were experimenting with injecting some substance continuously along the forefoot during a race.
  8. I also would like to see you continue to contribute here.
  9. And occasionally stick foot/feet in the water.
  10. What is the design idea behind scimitar rudders?
  11. Changing to a compass setting would have defined the problem. But I think you did have a wiring issue. I would check that all wire plugs are properly twisted/locked into thier sockets. Then follow the wiring to check for physical damge
  12. Then you have a wiring problem. Is this a 'new school' NMEA 2000 backbone install or old 1830 or purely a mix of Ray seatalks? Did the data link get re-established?
  13. Were you using the GPS to provide a 'go to' waypoint or 'route'? The pilot doesn't actually use GPS position - it works entirely off "cross track error" as output by the GPS unit. If pilot was steering a compass course, it doesn't need any GPS info
  14. 2nd rudder test is to detach rudder cables & turn rudder by hand. This will show any binding in bearings. Should turn easily (even in water) with no hard spots, & full rotation
