Re: Rigger in RI

HI Geoff,

I have had very good service with New England Yacht Rigging in East Greenwich. Great folks, they replaced my lazy jacks, as well as some other parts on my F32.

Re: rigging Camberspar

This thread very nicely outlines how to rig the camberspar: http://www.freedomyachts.org/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=8583 One key recommendation: use the little hole in the metal cover over the wheel to tie a line between it and your wrist when rigging / removing.

Re: Huyt 32 tender

We've been using a Dyer Dhow 9 for last couple years. We tow her, and have had no issues, almost can't tell it's back there when motoring or under sail.

We had an older RIB for a season which did not tow well, tended to nose down and drag noticeably.

Tom.

Re: Fresh water pump on F38

Ed, I was lucky enough to find a spare online for about $20 last year, but these pumps seem to generally run around $300. Having been doing research when I found it I found that there's reasonable access to parts including the bladders, etc. Mine had a broken pressure switch which I did find. The pu...
