Re: Rigging projects 2015.

Starting to work in the 19 m Multi Spar, we are really pleased to found wiring conduits in aluminium welded inside of the mast, and a new warning stick regarding the use of Bowlines to attach the bosunchair ..

The winchs pads are going to hold new Antal winches , and we plan to fit a Facnor full batten system to.. this mast have 3 top Attachment points for furlers, Jib, Staysail or storm jib and Genaker, we opt to fit the genaker and jib furlers , and leave the staysail furler if the owner choose in a future to fit a furler or not.

More tomorrow...

Re: Rigging projects 2015.

Mast halves assembled yesterday, really hard since this mast weight a lot and before to tight the screws we need to reach a straight line or the 2 halves dont fit even, lots of Loctite hard strenght and lots of screws, you can see in the picture how the gap is even and the 2 halves macht really nice each other..

The Facnor track for the mainsail is assembled to, is kind of tricky to, since we need to reach a perfect straight line before to tight the diamonds , each section end need to macht perfect with the other or jams can happen with the batten cars...

And the rope clutches are there to, we use Antal , expensive but for us is the best compromise, we have a pile of lewmar clutches broken in the shop, to align the clutches with the rope exits we use a guide line , and spread the clutches apart by several inches, a rule of thumb for us is to measure from the mast base a regular person height 1,80.

More tomorrow...maybe

Re: Rigging projects 2015.

Funny how Sparecraft splice their masts.
I did a Selden mast witch was broken into two halves. They sent me 200 (!) rivets and the inner joints. So much for Spacecraft!

Re: Rigging projects 2015.

We are really happy how they made it, the sleeve have almost the same thicknes as the mast walls, regarding screws , oh god, there is about 60 in each side a row of 12 in the mast track and a doublé row of 12 fwd, 6 mm and 8 mm...

Everything fit even and perfect , not a single bad screw thread , we try to sugest Sparcraft to customers, but they are expensive and many cant afford it..

Re: Rigging projects 2015.

Update and maybe final post, mast is done , rigging done and just final adjustment in the screws and small details bring this Project to the end, Owner very happy and planing a 2 circumnavigation by the capes again.

So far so good this stick is supported by uppers cap shrouds , lowers, and a couple of running backs plus 2 fwd furlers, tomorrow we install a inner solent stay to fly a storm jib , dinema in all the halyhards, Antal winches, Facnor batcar system , led lights on top and deck light in led to.

The only modification we made in the original plans is the reefing lines winch aluminium bracket , custom made with a scrap of aluminium plate, mirror polished ..

Cheers...

Hi Silver, well it depends of the sailplan, loads, boat, application, for example for running backs we use 12 strand dyneema mostly.

For mainsheets we use Dyna to if the extra cost is not a problem for the customer, jib , staysails, genakers, etc... we use Dyneema to but here there is a problem sometimes, since Dyna strech is really low some owners tend to overtension the Halyhards and we found a bunch of top jib swivels wrecked as well some bottom drums, the trick is not to over crank the winch, as a example 2 months ago i replace a Facnor top swivel for the second time in a year time frame in a Catana , we drop the dyna rope and install a Double Braid Polyester and so far no more problems.

Mainsheet travellers, preventers, haulers,topping lifts in doublé braid polyester, jib sheets to ...Cheers.
