Re: Looking for Any Information About the Privilege 39 (1992)

Dave I'm currently starting to replace my rigging on ICE BEAR. We have the boat in the med so as I go back and forth I bring the hard to get bits.

Do you happen to know the rigging parts and numbers for the standing rigging?

And do you know how I can get at the wire loom for the mast?
I have been trying to find it inside and I see no way to access it inside the bulkhead in front of the compression post?
I have had the liner off in both front cabins but see no access.

Hope you can help.

Love the boat and although I had my eye on this boat before your video. You defiantly clinched it.

Don.

Re: Looking for Any Information About the Privilege 39 (1992)

Well the rigging job and mast painting went well except that sparcraft sent the wrong rigging.
We told them the year and model and they said no problem we have all the dimensions in the computer.
Ends up that two of the upper diamonds were the wrong length. And the fittings have changed.
I will get a bit technical now as I'm a mechanic.

The anchors in the mast are designed for aircraft toggles. Not marine ones. Aircraft toggles are smaller and allow the toggles to swivel on the pin where it was machined like a ball to allow the lead angle to align with the anchor.
The new ones from sparcraft were marine ends and required some filing to allow the toggle to rotate.
If you don't do this the cables will be stressed on one side and could fail prematurely as your only using a small portion of the cable to take the load.

This leads me to the second issue.
The thin front upper and lower diamonds need to have longer toggles then provided. The reason is that the new turnbuckles are thicker and hit the mast and again cause the cable to change angle right at the swedge. For any one who has sat and had a beer with Brian Toss they would say that it is not fair or true.

I have to wonder If this is part of the reason for Dave's rigging issues.

To Sparcraft's credit they are fixing the issue and have been great.
I post this in the hopes that others avoid issues like this.

My cables are coming from France on an overnight boat. I could only imagine my frustration if I was in the South Pacific and noticed this issue.
