sheaves in boom of F30

my sheaves have seen better days, and I am thinking of replacing the 4 in the forward end cap of my boom. Though Rigrite has the originals, they charge an arm and a leg for them ($32 each). Shaefer has a better sheave (Delrin rather than acetyl, costing $17) with slightly different dimensions: 2" ra...

Length of reefing lines on F30

I have to replace the reefing lines since my boom (as well as my mast) was damaged by Hurricane Dorian and the yard cut away the lines in order to clear the debris. I have cut about an inch off the forward end of the boom and drilled new holes to attach the end cap. As I guess was true of other Free...

Re: Mast track for F30

I have decided to install a Tides Marine mast track instead, since it does not have to be supported for its full length. I am told that the greater stresses are exerted at the middle and upper part of the mast. Putting a few screws into the mast to support the track at its lower end, where I am miss...

Mast track for F30

I need to replace about 5 feet of mast track. Does anyone know the manufacturer of the standard Freedom 30 mast track, its dimensions and who might sell a similar track? BTW I have built a sleeve out of carbon around a pvc pipe, about 3/8" thick (like the mast) and 4 feet long, that I intend to use ...

Re: Wanted--carbon fibre mast, 44+ feet long

Actually, I should have said 49+ feet long. I'm still looking! I heard that Eric Hall was selling the CF mast from his converted J90 "Blackwing" but I have not found it advertised online nor do I have his contact info, since he is no longer associated with Hall Spars. New mast being too expensive, I...

That boat is no longer listed. I tried to contact the dealer in CT several weeks ago but they never got back to me.

Re: need mast measurements for F30

Many thanks to both of you! Mike, I did find your measurements a little confusing. I guess in converting a mast for a different boat the key measurements are the overall length and the inside diameter at the mast step. Also the outside diameter where it goes through the deck. I do not know if the co...

need mast measurements for F30

Having decided that a new mast for my Bagatelle is too exorbitant, I have been looking for a used replacement. I have located a freestanding carbon mast off a catamaran in FL--much longer than the Freedom 30's, but might be able to cut it to fit. Does anyone have detailed specs of the F30 mast? Fail...

Wanted--carbon fibre mast, 44+ feet long

I need to replace the mast on my Freedom 30, located in the Bahamas. I have not been able to locate a used mast that was original to the F30 but other Freedom boats may have masts that would fit, including cat ketches.

Re: Cost for replacing fuel tank in Freedom 25 diesel

Did this include the cost of the new engine, and if so, what model?
