Re: Electric head replacement

We had a standard C-head composition toilet in our RV. We liked it so much that we put in a C-head shorty in our last boat. Sold that and the new owner didn't want it so I am in the process of putting it in the current boat. I currently have it on the existing one-piece setup but am thinking of cutt...

Re: And it begins

Yea I know. (Plywood)... I will order it from West Marine and wait At least they have free shipping to Anchorage. If not then I will bite the bullet and have it shipped - it would eat me alive if I went with plywood. I am fortunate enough that I know quite a few people that make the trip from Anchor...

Re: Is this a G10 rig?

Re: Is this a G10 rig?

Thanks Seadago. I think it was I that was confused. I was given a mess in regards to lines either missing or in a rat's nest. Sails were also given to me from the trunk (boot) of his car. Your description of the luff line being part of the sail make sense. Same for the forward boom haylard and remov...

Re: Is this a G10 rig?

Seadago - is the "luff line" permanently attached to the top of the mast head? Andygc - as you mentioned I have all of that on the 33. I haven't committed to original or G10 quite yet.

Re: Is this a G10 rig?

Thanks for the info. As mentioned I will need to experiment with it once I have the sails made.

For a better lack of verbiage is the sewn luff line attached to the headboard?
