I'm new to the forum so be gentle. I'm a proud owner of a Southern Cross 39 and facing a general refit
, on most systems, over the next two years, so you will be hearing from me again. The rigging
is one of the projects and have several questions regarding an idea, would like to hear any thoughts, experiences and tips you all might have.
As of now, there are two halyards, running externally, to the mast
. I wish to convert one halyard
to two separate ones running inside the mast
. In addition, I want to add a winch
and locks to the mast for the foresails halyards and such. My questions are such:
1) Has anyone with a SC39, or a similar boat, done this and can contribute any knowledge on this?
2) What are the considerations of adding hardware
on to the mast when it comes to weakening of it?
So far have enjoyed reading threads,
Hope to continue.
