Navtec hydraulic backstay

I need to rebuild an integral Navtec backstay adjuster. Who would you all reccomend to send this to? There are numerous shops on their website, any good personal experience? Thanks

What is wrong with it? What model is it? More information rather than less usually makes getting good recommendations and suggestions easier.

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.

If it is just the hydraulic cylinder that is leaking, there are probably a lot of hydraulic equipment shops that can fix it for you locally. There is probably no real need to send it off to a "marine" vendor.

Most riggers will be familiar with what's needed, or know who to send it to. We took ours to a local rigger years back.

That said, there's probably nothing special about the seals from a hydraulic point of view.

You are in freshwater which is good as the unit should come apart

BUT we found it was a better deal to go with something like a new sailtec as on the older square saltwater units coming apart is less than a sure thing

As I understand it, Navtec hydrualics use specialized parts that are only available to Navtec-certified service shops, so your local truck stop might not be able to do anything for you. But that's just my understanding -- I could be wrong.

I have had my Navtec hydraulics serviced by Chesapeake Rigging in Annapolis, MD -- complete rebuilds of both backstay and vang cylinders and my central pump panel -- and by Maloney Marine Rigging in Southport, Maine (fixed a leaking vang cylinder). I am satisfied with the work that Chesapeake Rigging did, but I have to say that Jay Maloney is a great guy to work with -- I recommend him highly.

Thanks for the helpful information. I have tried to purchase parts, and you are correct, Navtec does not sell to individuals. I can get an estimate for repair and if it is more than 50% of a new Sailtec, I will do that, otherwise, will probably get this one rebuilt. Normally, I dont back up from tearing into anything and we do a bit of hydraulics in our shop here at work, but if you cant get parts that makes it a bit more difficult. Again, thanks for all your feedback!!

I had Chuck at Sound Rigging in Essex, CT rebuild my Navtec backstay last summer. As I recall it cost about $250. He did the job in about 3 days.
