JohnyV,

Single line reefing is sweet. Here is the info for that set up.

Rig and Sails

Our toping lift is set to loosen when the sail is all the way up. We set and forget it. Have not touched that line in five years. We adjust the boom and sail trim with the main sheet.

Looking to buy

My wife and I got on our first Mahe today. Beautiful layout, well thought out. We are looking for sub 200k. If any owners out there are looking to sell, please PM me.

We are in NY for the next week, then back to Tx. We frequently visit California as well. We are starting to look internationally, but would prefer a US purchase.

Thanks!
Matt

Re: Owners

Hi JonnyV

Congrats on your Mahe!

Regarding the play in the steering. You will always get a bit due to the movement between the inner cable and the casing on the bends but I also had excessive movement.

After a bit of investigation I discovered that there was play (like 10mm) between the end of the outer and the end fitting that is clamped to the platform in the starbord engine room. I don't know why but with the retaining nut fully tightened it did not pull the flange on the outer tight against the fitting.

I made up a 10mm nylon sleeve which I have put in to take up the slack. It is much better now but there still is a bit of play. Presumably the normal movement due to the play between the inner and outer in the bends.

Cheers

Re: Owners

Sorry for the delay, we've been busy busy.
MKB, thanks for that info, I'd actually found exactly the same slack on ours which I packed out with a wrap of cable tie off cut. The perfect size!
Cotemar. I was wrong when I said we had just two head through hulls, we have the regulation three and the loop of hose in the forward locker is the water tank breather. Look twice-type once next time.........
Another question or two. Does anyone know the make of the deck cleats? I'd like to add a couple, preferably matching the existing ones to the aft inboard sides. Also I know it's been discussed somewhere, is there anywhere on the forum with a sure-fire answer to the bulkhead/step squeak?
Lastly, the black Sika or equivalent round all our portlights/windows creates the most awful streaking, it's literally like black ink.. I've cleaned around them with strong detergent but is there a way to stop it re-occurring?

Thanks again.

Re: Owners

Hi Jonny

There was a dialogue on the streaking in the hull thread I think. Short answer is to apply Sika over the existing black glue. Apparently it is auto glass glue and the exposed bit degrades in the UV. Messy job with black Sika, get an expert if you are as clumsy as I am.

Goiot makes the Mahe hatches and the deck cleats.

The FP Mahe uses 10"inch 260 mm Goiot cleats

Sika - the auto glass glue is a plain Sika 295 and the one to be used on Marine is the 296UV - specific for the ultraviolet degrading.

We sold our Mahé

Dear all,
After nearly 6 years and more than 20000 nm we have sold our Mahé 88 "Miss Poes". And with a melancholic feeling we have let her go, hoping that the new owner will be very happy with her.
I will leave it to the new owner himself whether he wants to make himself known here.
In parallel we have purchased a bigger catamaran in the Far East. We are flying there in a few weeks, and will continue our world trip from there.
I will continue checking the Mahé forum; I might be able to make a useful contribution.
It was a pleasure being on this forum with you all. Together we have created a very nice forum with loads of useful information for the Mahé community. Keep up the good work to keep this alive! (and not only by Cotemar and MKB....).
I am also open to private messages.
Fair winds,
Jef
