I need to replace my.... teak

Scoobert, looking at your photos, look at all the teak on your deck - that is why you are suffering from the heat! My boat used to have teak decks, I'm not quite done removing it, there is still a little bit on the bow. Today I measured the temperatures of the teak and of the white deck a few inches away, this is what it looks like:

Here is the temperature of the teak:

And here is the temperature of the white deck right next to the teak:

Re: I need to replace my.... thing?

Depending on the leads it is probably possible to lead everything back to the cockpit but you'd have to install some turning blocks and jam cleats. They liked to put in lots of winches back in the day. If they all still work properly then you might as well stick with them. If yyou're finding that you are lacking cleats for the lines you can do tugboat hitches around the winches. Good knot to know anyway. The two 'unknowns' on the boom are most likely for reefing lines.

Looks like ya got some work ahead of ya, but it also looks like you will have a fine vessel when your done ! I don't believe you will ever solo sail this one tho LOL

Ever considered actually learning to sail before buying a big old beat up boat and taking it out? You spent enough years on the forum blowing smoke up our asses, you could have bothered to learn and had plenty of time for it. ASA, other people's boats, buy a dinghy, etc. Seems you were too busy telling us all about how you were gonna make a cat out of two mono hulls to bother. You have provided a lot of people on this forum a lot of laughs, but it stops being funny when you actually leave the dock.

Re: I need to replace my.... thing?

Both mast are the same height? Add a bit to the aft mast and you have a schooner. I 'm yet to get any perspective on this boat. So many odd images. Is this done with photo shop There is a hatch in the 2nd pic. Fore and aft look ambiguous. It has the sense of an old design with a hoop type boomkin. More and better pics would help a lot. Maybe back up about 50' and take a pic of the boat,,perspective.

Indeed. However the book i was told to buy was too basic. Didnt tell me how to do these things. There is a full sailing course on board, but far too advanced for me.

i love the teak look thou. to me fiberglass is too sterile.
the entire inside of our yacht is teak as well.
much nicer then the custom build boats i looked at that were fiberglass.
once the work is complete on this boat i will look for a cat with teak decks i can get cheaply and trade down
