We are coastal and Bahamas cruisers and don't feel the need for a heavy and high maintenance raft. Cats don't sink.... Right?
Who made your arch? I'm contemplating an arch......

Re: Privilege Cats

Looks like things have been quiet here for a bit.

I need some info from the P39 owners.
I am trying to figure out where the wiring for my mast is routed?
I have taken off the liner to the center bulkhead in the forward cabin and see no access to this wire loom.
Any one have any clue? I have tried every thing except pulling off the wood on the bulkhead in the saloon.

And I am also looking for the specs on the fittings for the standing ringing.
I am starting to replace my standing ringing and need to buy the parts to reduce down time.
It's tough to get the fiddley bits in Tunisia.

I appreciate any help.

Re: Privilege Cats

On my 1989 P39 the mast wiring is accessed from the Starboard forward cabin. Start by removing the wooden " headboard" trim piece. That should reveal a seam in the panels that cover the wall at the head of the cabin.
Remove the top panel and you should find an access hole to the mast compression post and wiring j box.
There is also a approximately 1 foot square assess under the mattress in the aft corner where it meets the headboard. That is where the wires pass through the main bulkhead into the salon.
What sort of info do you need on the rigging ?
Do you have a complete set now?

Re: Privilege Cats

Thank you. That is exactly the info I needed.
I started to remove that panel and looked underneath but did not see any access. I didn't want to remove the wiring for the light and fan so I didn't fully remove it.


As for rigging. Consider that I'm starting from scratch.

I know the lengths of Ten and 12 mm cable and that is easy.

But the mast comes down in December and I wanted to pre order the toggles and fittings.
I'm using rigging only' web site.

So any help here is also appreciated.
I fly back and forth to the boat two to three times a year till my contract with the military is done. Then we are off to cut ties to shore. Can't wait.

Thank you again.
Saved me cutting a hole I did not need too.
I was sure privilege did it right.

Re: Privilege Cats

What year is your P39?
I know the rigs are different on the 1988 model and maybe other years too.
I replaced all my standing rigging about 4 years ago.
A few things stand out from that project.
All the pins are metric sizes, that made a difference only on the headstay and cap shrouds. I think they were 22mm with 14MM wire. Most of the fittings I found had 7/8 pins which were too big.
There is no turnbuckle on the headstay, the length must be exactly right.
The top of the headstay terminates in a toggle jaw. I used all mechanical terminals and only Hayn has one of those.
I replaced the Navtec turnbuckles with open bodies so I could use mechanical studs on the cap shrouds.
The cap shrouds have eyes at the top of the wire.
There was no toggle at the bottom of my original headstay, I added one and shortened the stay by that amount.
The aft diamonds on my boat have stemballs at the top and male studs at the bottom.
The forward diamond has a eye toggle at the top and a male stud at the bottom.
I found cracks on the stemball cups that sit inside the mast and replaced those too.

Re: Privilege Cats

It's a 93 according to the data plate. But I didn't think they made them that late.
I didn't see any ball and cup fixtures on the stays at the top of the mast. but like I said I could not see the whole fixture.
All my diamond stays look like stud ends or eye ends. The eye ends go around a pin that I can't get a caliper on to check the size. And I'm sure your right that it's metric. I have yet to find anything on the boat that's imperial.
The other end of the cable is a stud that goes to a turn buckle and then to a stud eye end and again to the metric pin.

These pins are in a captured fixture in the mast. I suspect from past experience on my other boats that these fixtures have a lip that when the screws are removed they can be pushed back into the mast and then tilted to remove them.

So it's the for stay and cap shrouds I could not see and have no Intel on? I wonder if your right and that it's a ball and socket style.

The rigging is original. The boat never left the med and seems to have spent most of its life in Rome.

I am also going to mechanical fittings.
I just need to find the proper fittings.

I suspect I will have to go to the boat in Dec and drop the mast. Take a cap shroud and diamond stay set with me home to BC. Send it to rigging only and get them, to source parts. Then put it all back together when I go back to the boat for another month in April. Puts my trip to Greece back 6 months but this project should be done and Insurance is also demanding it.

Thanks again your info is moving me forward in the project.

Re: Privilege Cats

I've been looking at cats for about a year and have recently decided my first choice would be for a Privilege, 42-49ft, beam must be under 25ft but most are. If anyone here is thinking about selling, please contact me first. Likewise if you know of another owner thinking about selling.

Cheers,
Cash in Hand

Re: Privilege Cats

Good choice! My 435 had 23ft and a bit beam. 465/495 may be a touch over 25ft so could be too wide. I hauled out several places on the east coast but we were often very close to the limit.

Re: Privilege Cats

I'd be surprised if a Privilege 49 was under 25 feet beam. But if you want to get serious get a Switch 51.

Re: Privilege Cats

We're interested in 12-14 meters (39-47 feet). For the right boat, we may consider one across the pond.
