Mine has a lot of play too.
Putting plastic washers / shims to settle it down has been on my to do list for a long time.

Companionway Trim Lace

Hello,

Does anyone know of a source for the companionway trimlace?
The rubber trim piece that covers the raw edge around the companionway.
Ours is looking it's 34 years.

Thanks,
Sam

Re: Mast wiring and lights

Ours has a small gap at the bottom of the angled brace in the cabin.
It exits in the "bilge" area under the v berth.
From there it runs to starboard under the head.

Re: Daggerboard measurements and repair

I have a catia file with the template shape.
I used it to check the shape of mine when I bought the boat.
Do you have access to any kind of cad software?
I can export the file and send it to you.

Re: Time to put it away.

Yeah. I think I am doing something wrong.
How do you add pictures to the message board?

Re: Lexan Window Replacement, Thickness?

I read thru it and didn't see anything about thickness.
If someone knows the thickness they used, I would appreciate the info.

Thanks,

Re: Lexan Window Replacement, Thickness?

Hello Jamie,

What thickness did you end up pulling out of your boat?
How did the project go?
I'm going to tackle this job this fall.

Thank you,
Sam

Re: S2 7.9 Tiller

I just ordered a new one from Rudder Craft after a catastrophic failure yesterday.
I'll report out once I have it installed.

Re: foam?

Maybe you can pull the lift keel and stop the leak from inside the trunk.

Mast Step Repair from Inside

Has anyone done a mast step core repair from inside the cabin?
I am considering replacing the mast step gusset and replacing any bad core at the same time.
Thank you in advance.

Re: Winch Question

The 30 is a little large for the cabin top.
I would stick with the 16 size.
