Jeff,

I sailed a lot the 40.7, both cockpits, (the IMS with the track on the floor and tiller and the "standard" version with the "wimpy" track on the seats, and the 10 mile diameter wheel!! I admit the track on the First is dull, and not so effective and is shitty).

My track is Lwemar, is thicker, and the traveller is way much better its a modified R1..

The 40.7 has the traveller cleats sideways and they are really really a pain...I understand you. Does the boat you sail like this?

Modify it...

The option of being on the floor, but slightly raised, was due to my preference while sailing, its more effective and less distortion under load...every hole is bolted down, and ther's a CF stiffner underneath.

But also because we use the boat for the vacations, with half of the population of Portugal visiting us!!

As far as the gear, I worked very close with Lewmar UK, and we kinda designed the controls together. HArken in the US, also helped, as the hi load blocks are Harken. (I had a bad experience with Harken on X Yacht I owned previously, specially winches and clutches, but the blocks WOW...very good).

So, appart from the boom, its pretty much beefed up... well that traveller block desintegrated when I broke my boom... I have a new one there already.

We should meet.


By the way...here in Portugal we call flapping chest muscles...TITS!!!

Chinese-English Dictionary

From now on, please speak (write) in small, little dinstinct phrases with pictures of the boats (and owners manuals) so those of us that accidently stumble on this thread

HAVE SOME IDEA OF WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!!!??????
This from the "Catalina 400 Technical Editor"? If that doesn't explain a lot...

T-

I know nothing about racing or any of that stuff (well, for the most part). Not my cup of tea. Before I became the MS Editor, I told the commodore the same thing: I AM NOT A RACER, HAVE NOT INTEREST IN IT, KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT IT! I put that out in the open... up front!

Of course, a Tartan owner would not understand racing either.... as, if it is not blowing 4000000 mph in Cat 200 winds, you do not reach hull speed!!! HAHA!!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

CD, in simple terms, he made some custom hardware to enable control from one spot in the cockpit. That spot is where his wheelchair will be locked down. The extra roomy cockpit allows for mobility while he is feeling up to using his walker.
