Re: Rebdding and riveting mast track

Good write up on rivets vs. screws used on spars in the current issue of Practical Sailor. Based on my reading, I agree that monel rivets seem best and your plan seems sound.
Good luck. Let us know what you do.

Re: Fuzzy forward hatch

My understanding is that epoxy does not have a lot of UV stability and so an unprotected layer of epoxy might look good at first, but eventually yellow and crack from UV degradation. Assuming your "fuzz" is on the exterior of the hatch.
Good luck.

Re: F38 Mast Leak, Ready to admit defeat

Hi Ed, If you are indeed leaking around the collar area and into the cabin, I'd definitely lift the collar and re-calk the entire area. Like you, I store with mast up during the winter, but on the rare occasion that the mast has been pulled, I've been impressed how much caulking was used beneath the...

Re: F38 Cover

Hi Ed

I’d gladly take both off your hands as I have a F38 in Mattapoisett with a Fairclough system. Could always use extra material and parts. Happy to make a donation. Could pick it up weekend of April 28 if that works

F36/38 Steering Wheel

For those with a F36 or F38 and the original Edson Destroyer Wheel, what is the diameter?
I've been using an Edson Access Wheel and considering going back, but the yard lost my original.

My F36/38 came with a two blade MaxProp. I have never known anything else and it works well.

Re: Topic 1000

Every time I have rebedded a port light I have done some epoxy work to make the cut-outs in the cabin sides fit better. I also seal any exposed wood with epoxy. Last time I used West System 6-10, which, while expensive, is so much tidier than mixing and thickening in a cup. I mask the cut-out on bo...
