Re-bedding jib sheet tracks

Used the butyl tape to re-bed the jib sheet tracks on the "new to me" C&C 24 "Ariel". The tapes seems to work really well. I'll let everyone know in 10 years.

Looks like this was the first time in 32 years they've come off. The bolts were very stuck!!

A few of them stripped coming out. They seem to be 1/4 inch, but the marina mere can't match the threds. They are corser then anything they have here in the marina.

Does any one know the exact meassurements? Could they be mtrics by any chance? I do not know when Canada switch to metric.

Thanks

Chuck

I doubt they are metric. Metric bolts are still a rare item in Canada. 1/4-20 is the most common.

maybe the marina only has 1/4" x 32 ? 1/4" x 20 are more common.

Thanks. They are close to 20 (hard to tell as the end is stripped) but as that's the consensus, we'll be off to Home Depot tomorrow to validate by testing a 1/4 x 20 bolt on one of the nuts off the boat.

Assuming that fits, any thoughts on the best source for stainless hardware?

Depends where you are. Any good marine store or industrial fastener supplier should have them.

Fastenal has stainless steel fasteners, as does Boltdepot.com. Also, some hardware stores carry it as well. The Ace Hardware and the Sears Hardware store near my marina both do.

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.
