Late Model Fountaine Pajot Noise

Please share your experience with FP Helia, Salina, Saona, Saba creaking and other sounds at anchor and under sail?

Thank you in advance.

Re: Late Model Fountaine Pajot Noise

Sailed a couple of FPs, like most of the competition where the interiors are tabbed in as a construction method, the woodwork rubs against the fiberglass and squeaks and creaks. Many custom built cats have the interiors glassed to the hull and so do not exhibit this as much if at all. The squeaking can be alleviated with teflon tape in the right place, if you can find the culprit. Squeaking in the rigging at anchor can be alleviated with silicon spray.

My Mahe has 2 spots where the woodwork rubs against the fiberglass in certain rolling seas usually only at anchor. Eventually I'll figure out exactly where it's coming from, otherwise just a minor annoyance.
