Re: Ripped Genoa roller

I'm not sure I understand. The epoxy filler functions as a setting material, like glue or resin, to fix the fitting in the hole, correct? In that case why remove the fitting after the epoxy had set? Sikaflex functions as a watertight sealant at the top side of the deck , not as setting material to k...

Re: Ripped Genoa roller

Good to know my Hempel Epoxy will do. Should I fill the mixture into the hole from above into the hole and then insert the greased fitting screw? The foam is unattached to the fitting screw below deck . It seems to be just a filling between deck and cabin ceiling and was easy to clear in order to se...

Re: Ripped Genoa roller

image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg I chiseled a hole in the cabin and exposed the screw. Around was foam. That was the hollow sound. The washer and but are in good condition. I pushed out the ripped screw from above. It came out easily. It's upper threads which in the section which was ins...

Re: Ripped Genoa roller

I checked inside the cabin where this fitting should be and it seems this is totally glassed over and covered with fiber mat. it is too close to the outside of the hull. There are no ceiling boards in the area. Plus, the area makes a hollow sounds when knocked on, which may indicate extensive rot. I...

Re: Ripped Genoa roller

Thank you for the information! indeed this fitting is not visible from the cabin. So I guess I can not pull the rest of that ripped bolt out. I can only drill a new hole and fit a new roller ? I would be drilling into solid glass? Would I then need a threaded bolt? Would the threads catch into the g...

Ripped Genoa roller

image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Hi The block running through line for opening and rolling the Genoa had ripped from the deck. Part of the screw is still inside the deck. I'm not sure what material was this screw threaded into and if it was a later addition or made at the Westerly shipyard, glassed...

Re: How to rig the main sheet

This is a Westerly Conway ketch Mk2 1979. The main sheet is rolled on the boom from the outside and is lifted up the mast, from the to the tack, via plastic clips that run up the mast inside a rail.

How to rig the main sheet

Hi
I can't figure out the main sheet rigging . There is no traveler to secure the main sheet boom when we have it out to either port or starboard. Can anyone help me make sense of the current lines rigging and blocks?

Conway 36 hatch

Hi I've just purchased a Conway 36 ketch 1979 and refitting it. The forward hatch - Passport - has broken hinges which are part of the hatch base. I assume I'll need a new hatch base. Where can it be purchased? I'll also need hatch locks and hatch rail stoppers Also one hinge on the toilet seat in t...

Re: Westerly Conway 36 new standing rigging

Thanks Roger

What should be the mm wire specifications i'm looking for when using a 1x19, without over rigging?
The main mast wires should be thicker than the mizzen mast i suppose

Westerly Conway 36 new standing rigging

Hi everyone. I am new to this forum (and to boat ownership) and already benefitting from the wealth of information available here! I'm trying to budget a refit of a Westerly Conway 36 ketch. Replacing the standing rigging, which is over 14 years old, will probably be the largest expense. How should ...
