Re: Ready

The lightning ground is a half inch by two strip bolted to the bottom amd hooked up to the mast and a life line stancheon with a thick copper wire. The bolt heads are laminated over with several layers of glass and epoxy on the inside of the hull.

Re: Ready

cool beans. nice clean installation. ?did you fabricate the strip yourself or is it "store bought"? Store bought ones seem to have multiple piercings of the hull with the bolts passing through bolted to a copper backing plate which is then connected to the mast etc. ? Did you do it that way?

Nice looking boat FC. The shear reminds me of a Giles 38 I used to sail on. Very smart!

Any chance we will see you Downeast this season?

I just bought the strip of copper and "borrowed " some bronze 3 inch bar stock from work and turned that into washers, then ran the thick copper cable from bolt to bolt and to the mast and lifeline stancheon.

If you might get this far pm me. I could have an extra mooring in Seal Harbor this summer.

That goes for the rest of you Scallywags, too! Arrr Arr!

Did you know Mt. Desert Island has an island wide FREE buss service. Every 20 min or so you can hop on a modern propane fueled bus and go anywhere on the island. Check it out on the web. I love it. L.L. Bean sponsors it. I can sail to Bar Harbor and come home on the bus. Then take the bus back and sail home. That is if I need to get home for some good reason. Don't need a car to get anywhere.
