Re: Konsort Chainplate

I would say yes but I would ease the standing rigging all round to ensure you don't have too much tension on the mast. You can take the halyard that comes output below the spreaders down to the midships cleat on the side you are going to work on and tension it but it shouldn't be required. I have re...

Re: Volvopenta 2003t water lock in riviera

Roger,
Is it the waterlock that breaths or the anti syphon valve at the high point after the exhaust elbow?

Re: Builders Certificate

If you have other details like the hull number you could try asking Caroline Hardy at Trafalgar Yachts. She has a lot of the records from the old Westerly company. They are on holiday till the 27th of this month I believe.

Re: Hull number/Lloyds number confusion

The hull number on the transom will be the correct one. You could try contacting Caroline Hardy at Trafalgar Yachts as she is ex Westerly and has a lot of the paperwork. She is very helpful on these matters.

Re: Upper and lower spreader mal alignment

Mike,

I have always seen masts lifted with a strop under the spreader base although I can't recall which ones on a double spreader rig. I can't see how else you would lift it.

Re: Flexible deck

I don't know the Cirrus so can't comment directly but on larger boats such as the Konsort the mast step is seperate and includes a plywood plate above a compression post to the deck. If this is not the case on the Cirrus and it is just sitting other balsa sandwich then yes you could well have a prob...

Re: Flexible deck

Tap with your knuckle around the area you think has the problem to get a rough idea of the area to be treated then use your drill to go through the underside of the deck to find the actual boundary. You know what you see when you hit the good stuff so the messy bit is removing the glass layer which ...

Re: Fulmar stanchion base

The complete length of the rubbing strake on the Konsort, apart from the section in the cockpit locker for some reason, is the same. There are times when I hate Westerly for the things they did.

Re: Carpet tiles for quarterberths?

Agreed about the 3M face mask. At around £15 or so it is worth having one on standby for these type of jobs. Working with contact adhesives even with all the hatches open is not a good idea especially if you are on your own.

Re: Inflatable for a Konsort

I have a Wetline 2.9 mtr solid transom dinghy with an inflatable airdeck and keel which rolls up for storing forward of the mast or on the foredeck just in front of the cabin. I have a 6hp Mercury 4 stroke which pushs it along well.but a 4hp would do just as well. With the keel, deck and larger tube...
