Hey Stan,
I think the wind velocities are higher where you are than where I am, which is where Ida originally made landfall.

Originally the fiddle block attached to a SS eye strap, but it's flimsy as tissue paper. There's an after-market metal fitting that goes between the mast boot and the step, but I'm not planning on pulling the mast at this point. The plan is to sail her down to Port St. Lucie, and take her through Ocachobee to Ft. Meyers, and then on up to Sarasota, Apalachicola, and then on home. Hope you and that NC of yours are doing great....


DJ,
That would wonderful if you take a tape measure down to your boat the next time you're there! I'm looking for the width fore and aft. I'm thinking it's around 9.5 inches....

By the way, my wife is in Seattle right now. Can't remember the name of the hotel.... but the Beatles stayed there way back when, and I think it begins with an "E." Pretty sure it's near the Space Needle. I think it's a pretty well known place.

That's a nice looking C-30 you've got....

Ahh.. the Edgewater.. Hangs out over Eliott Bay.. Lots of famous misbehavior by rock stars there...

How long will she be in town? Someone here could probably manage to take her sailing.....

David,
That's it! The Edgewater! Unfortunately she's leaving tomorrow, but that's a mighty fine gesture. She is absolutely smitten with that area. She's called four or five times just to describe the bay, the boats, the surrounding hills. She woke up this morning to an otter swimming under her balcony....

If you go over there and call up to her room, she'll probably get drunk with you in the bar....

Work is crazy now, so, no visit from me... Weather's been pretty crappy lately, so, if she likes it now, she should try July...


You and the family would be very welcome here if you chose to come for a visit....


I'll get to the boat and take some pictures.

Dude - I measured the mast of a C30 across from me and got 8.5". Don't know if it was a TR or not. Of course, the wind was a little cold so you might need to figure in shrinkage.

Howdy..

Just got back from the boat. My measurements, although not exact look more like 9" to me instead of 8.5. The width is 5" and that's a more accurate measuremnt..
My measurement includes the track for the sail slides. My boat is an 84. standard rig.

If it matters, I can try again with calipers or something and do a better job with the measurements... I expect to be back to the boat this weekend...

I took some pictures to clarify/confuse the issue.







The boat came stock with the spruce spreaders. Mine had been replaced by the P.O.

My mainsheet/boomvang setup seems to work well for me. I'm no marine architect, but I think it's plenty strong.

David,
Can't tell you how much I appreciate that.... I am facing northwest right now, sending a great big psychic "thank you." Did you get it? If not, I'll resend.... Thanks.

Yours definitely looks adequately engineered. Mine, on the other hand, came with a very flimsy padeye set within the aft slide of the mast. Instead of replacing something that doesn't really work, I thought I would put in a big eye-bolt extending aft to fore, with the nut on the forward side of the mast. I found such a maranized bolt online, but it only comes in a few lengths. One of the sizes is ten inches from the base of the eye to the end of the bolt. This should work perfectly. Unfortunately I don't have access to my boat, so I'm having to rely on my sailor-mench-Catalina-brethern.

We'll be in touch as per our PM exchanges.... My wife likes the idea....
Thanks again,
Dwight
