Re: CT Owner Group

Hi, is it possible to get a copy of this prints? All expense paid of course. As I replayed earlier I'm looking at the boat that looks like CT 47. Thank you.

Re: CT Owner Group

Could be, lets look at a couple of photos to make sure...

First go to www.hekowisailing.com and look at the deck layout photos. You can actually steal the deck layout from there.

The shadow in your photo makes it hard to see the hull shape near the leading edge of the more or less 3/4s keel.

I measured the fiberglass pretty carefully on mine and came up with 46 foot 11 inches. The specs say 46 foot 11 and 3/4s, which I thought was a bit too too accurate, but maybe that was right...

You do have a different house top and some different hull ports aft, but deck molds can be swapped around, and I have a jig saw myself!

Hekowi has a modifed master suite after a fire, so we can't judge it that way...

Re: CT Owner Group

I found the original documents after I post my question.
This is LIBERTY type Delta 46, the luxury, high headroom, ketch rigged version of the proven Peterson Hull, had her interior design upgraded by H.S. Ives of Maine Cruising Design, Winterport, Maine and J.V. Reden of the Institute for Boat Design, Berlin. She was built in the SHIN FA yard by Delta Marine (Taiwan) for Delta Marine Gmbh, Berlin, Germany.

She is in medium condition: needs the exterior paint salon TLC I wonder where I can look for the information on this boat. I'm not very experienced in restoring big boats. My last one was Colambia 8.3. I had lots of good time on it on the Keys

thank you for you reply

Re: CT Owner Group

Hi folks,
I have a CT41 that is a major restoration/ salvage job. I’m getting ready to return to this project and need to address the fuel tanks and the stuffing gland. On the fuel tanks I seen something about cold galvanizing. Has anyone something to share on this? I will be pulling them this spring to either coat them or replace them. The boat has been sitting for 14 years, evaluating them for their current condition is not difficult, I want to know how cold galvanizing will last in salt conditions.
The stuffing gland is another thing, the floor is completely open so visibility is not the issue, I just don’t see anything resembling a gland.
The only water this boat has seen recently has been on the inside so I do not know what condition it will be in but I want to replaced it with a dripless type regardless.

Re: CT Owner Group

We have a CT 49 in the SF Bay area. We've owned,lived on, raced, and cruised her for 12 years. Are there any others in SF Bay?

Re: CT Owner Group

I have a ct49 in st Thomas U.S. Virgin Islands. Trying to install ssb and am wondering if these boats have a bonded ground. Anyone know.

Re: CT Owner Group

I do not know about all of the CT47s and 49s, but when I bought mine there was a breaker and some heavy gauge wiring appropriate for an SSB.

So I have one now. In my reinstall I discovered a bunch of 3 inch wide copper strips serving as grounding cable here and there and a lot of 10 gauge normal ground cables, and finally there is a grounding plate on the outside of the hull, 3/4s aft starboard and about 3 foot under water. I have a ketch 47, and I used a mizzen shroud for the antennae, and the reception seems pretty good, but I don't really know enough about SSBs to do much except listen to weather reports when way out at sea. But then that is something pretty important...

Re: CT Owner Group

I realise this is an old thread, but still alive by the looks of it. Like many others here, I like the traditional looks and feel of these Taiwanese/Formosian yachts.
I tried to find information on the CT 48, a design by Perry?
Any information is welcome.
thanks
hank

Re: CT Owner Group

Actually Bob perry is a member of this forum…I have a ct48 from 78…I contacted him about her and he told me that he did not design her…but did do some modifications to her.
