Tayana V42 cabinet movement

Hello, this is my first post. Currently looking to purchase an aft cockpit V42. The boat appears well maintained but when sitting in the saloon, there is a gap between the top of the settee and the overhead cabinets. In more detail when looking at the cabinets the gap is about 3/16 to 1/4 of an inch at one end of the cabinet and zero at the opposite end. Its the inner ends of the cabinets which have the gaps, tapering to nothing at opposite end.

The rig was very much over tensioned and releasing has seen the gap reduce but not dissapear, its been 4 days or so.

My concern is that when re tensioning the rig (not over tensioning it) the gaps will open up again, especially once you start sailing. I also wondered
if there is a lot of creaking from the cabinet movement.

The chainplates are sound and the knees have also been sounded and appear fine also.

Any insight much appreciated.

Re: Tayana V42 cabinet movement

I am not familiar with the boat in question, but movement near the chainplates area is never good. the loads of the chainplates should be distrubuted to the hull of the boat and no movement is acceptable. Loosening or overtensioning the rig should not affect this situation because a lot of load will be applied to them when you are sailing.

Re: Tayana V42 cabinet movement

Thanks celenoglu. It appears that the movement is uniform in that it is not specific to one chain plate, the movememt is symetrical on both sides of the boat and it APPEARS the hull flexis inwards and the deck upwards (though to the naked eye you cannot see the flex in the hull). The cabinets attach to the deck which is why I am seeing the movement. Surveyor advised this is common in boats with overtuned rigs, still feel pretty nervous about it.
