Trumans good people..He really loved Molly C and I dont think he ever had a chance to sail her..He would come down on the weekends every now again and sort of camp out at the dock.. I think he bought her from Mr.Hill would he happen to be your brother?

Re: CT 34

Regarding the bowsprit on Morning Star the anchor point for the staysail is connected thru the bowsprit as well as the staysail stay both have large backing plates that we have added I am also going too add an anchor chain chock in front of the staysail stay and as this needs to be very strong it will need to thru bolted with backing under deck. I do not see an issue with 2 or 3 laminated planks to build up the bowsprit ours has a heel portion about 3/4 inch thick and I rabbited the edge to create a caulk joint to the team deck this allows repainting without removal

thanks for the info , if you get a chance could you post a picture of your bowsprit where the stay sail connects .
i have the stay sail , the roller furler and a boom i think is for the stay sail .
but i have not been able to find anything like a goose neck to attach the boom to.

Re: CT 34

What or which balsa core boat do you have, I have just read about soft decks on older boats and problems with repair. Tks, Klineco

I will take a picture of our bowsprit as well as of the gooseneck that I removed if I can find it I may have given it away I will look for an older picture of the staysail boom when it was still mounted as well
