You don't want to be screwed~

Thanks for the heads up on the bolted joint verses screwed deck fastening.

Sorry Cam I know this is an old post but I can't let it go. This rumor was started by Jack Hornor who was having an off day. To date us Whitby 42 folks have failed to kill it off, I'm considering sending it to myth busters.

All Whitby 42 have the hull to deck joint bolted. The two parts were stuck together with a mash of resin and fiberglass and rivets were used to hold them until it set up. After that the hulls were bolted with SS bolts every 6" or so. A quick peek over the port side fuel tank in the ER will dispel any lingering doubts.

bolted only where there is genoa track and at the stem fitting and stern corners. Right?

From someone who was there....

"According to Doug Stephenson who worked for Whitby, through bolting became standard during the production period during which the boats were manufactured. On those earlier boats that were not specifically through bolted on the full perimeter, through bolts on 4" intervals occur on every Whitby along the port and starboard head sail tracks. Many boats have tracks extending almost to the transom.

Inspection of numerous Whitby 42s has demonstrated that through bolting was very commonly employed and any prospective Whitby owner should verify this to his or her satisfaction. Examine the joint from the interior. You'll find through bolts!"

And from a boat (Hull #70) when the cap rail was removed;

"Through bolts for the hull to deck joint were found the entire length of the boat, both sides, approximately every 12 to 16 inches apart, except where the genoa track was, and there the bolts were every 6 inches."

Anyone interested in a Whitby should visit;

Welcome to the Whitby Brewer Sailboats Site

Regards

Gerry
