Shrink wrap around shrouds?

How do I shrink wrap around my shrouds and keep the water from leaking through? How about the mast? Does it adhere to itself? I've found sites that talk about the mast some, but nothing about shrouds.

The key is shrinkwrap tape. It comes in rolls of various widths and is essential to sealing penetrations at shrouds, stays and masts.

WOW, TB, find a vent for the heater and you have a very nice club house for the winter!! That's a great framing job, and standing headroom to work on the boat.

What about the halyards??

TB,
That's an impressive sunroom! You could sit out there all winter and watch football and drink beer.

te,
I actually had intentions of working on the boat during the winter months when designing/building this behemoth. Projects like reefing/recaulking the teak decks, topsides compounding, polishing and waxing, teak stripping/refinishing, among other chores. The space is great for doing these things.


It seemed like a good plan, considering my house is just 5 minutes from the marina and we do go there often. In reality though, once I step under the cover - my enthusiasm for work escapes me . . . due to the cold.

So, I just crank up the Espar central forced warm air, diesel heater (exhaust vent is at the hull, beneath the toerail and cover edge), open up the hatches and pilothouse doors and after a few beers, it gets toasty warm. By that time though, I don't feel much like working and just crack open a few more beers. I ended up doing all the work in the Spring - when the cover came off. But you got me thinking about football though . . . I could move the 50" plasma to the boat for a superbowl party.

Max,
The first year, when these pictures were taken, I kept the halyards clipped to the mast's pad eyes. But subsequent years, to prevent halyard mast slap and minimize water leaks at the masts, I clipped the 4 headsail and main halyards to the furlex and group the mizzen halyards to a shroud. The shrinkwrapper then seals them with shinkwrap tape along with the other penetrations. The mizzen boom is laid on deck and lazyjack lines are wrapped around the masts, above the cover. The space stays surprisingly dry.

TB,
Super Bowl, that's agreat idea. That way you'll be able to watch your Patriots. I on the other hand, being from Philly, will have absolutely nothing to watch.

I feel sorry for you guys, that have to be deprived from sailing and then on top have to build these things over the boat.

I think that more people will now come to sailnet huh?? Funny...I will be less time here...we're on opposite ends.

I believe God distributes things evenly...for example the Barasilians got the best girls in the World, but also got crime, and poverty. The English got a good language, but got fish and chips and extremely bad teeth...the French got good food, but lack courage, the Americans got propsperity but shitty weather, the Portuguse got the good weather all year round, but we are close to Spain...God distributes...I'm telling you.

Yeah Giu, we've got it really bad up here in the frozen tundra. Every day it snows, the Bay freezes solid so we have to hack the ice from our hulls, boats capsize with all the snow and ice . . .





But don't feel sorry for us, it only lasts 10 months out of the year. Besides, think of all the fun we have chipping ice off our vehicles.
