Charlie Nobles

I'm getting ready to install. I'm wondering if I should through bolt the fair block for the deck iron and then screw the deck iron into the fairing block or if I should through bolt it all.

The block and deck iron sit about 2" off the deck. Of course I could shorten the block and put a larger hole in the deck but at this point I'm thinking of keeping a larger fairing block and smaller hole in the deck.

Thanks for any input.

OK, I'll bite. Probably it's just me being obtuse, but I've been sailing for over 40 years and I've never encountered Charlie. I've heard of a galley stove or pipe being called Charlie Noble - otherwise I (and I suspect most people) have no idea what you're talking about.

Charlie noble

The charlie noble is the fitting through which a stove pipe or dry (hot) exhaust passes, which isolates the hot metal from the deck/hull. There are a range of designs which rely on different theories, including wet ring, insulated, and dry. The fitting is usually mounted on a block which is fitted to the camber of the deck or coachroof.

Latterly, the term is used to describe the entire stack, or the fitting at the top of the chimney which is designed to help it draw no matter what direction or speed of the wind.

Actually, some quick research is finding me wrong... A mythic captain Noble ordered his cook to polish the copper stack on his boat, so sailors started calling the stack "Charlie Noble". (This smacks of euphemism to me.)
