Hi Jonas!

Send somme pics! Anthything that gets the boat to go faster i would lov to see. We hauled out two weeks ago for about a week. Redid the bottom. She flies. We often top out at 8.2 kts. Regularly hit the 7s. Lots of fun....

Wondering if anyone has any tips on what to look for in terms of unacceptable damage, issues, etc before buying.
Thanks a lot and look forward to making fellow owner acquaintances here.

Good winds!

Hello Francisco and welcome,

Waymar has all ready given you a wise answer. When you look at the deck and the foam/balsa in the sandwich construction take a look below the mast step. I've changed the materiel below my mast step during this winter. You can read about it above.

Good luck!

Hello Waymar,

The new mast and the bom will both be longer than the original and the sail plan vill be 20 % larger. I suppose the loads will be like it was before, because of the righting moment is nearly exactly the same. We'll sail faster than before in light winds and we'll probably need the set the first ref earlier then before. So why stronger construction? I think that the old version was a little bit to weak and i'd like to be sure. The main reason why I chose the actual construction is that the rigging hit the deck between to knees. Therefor I fixed the rigging in new chain plates glassed into the hull.

Today I've fixed with my new mast and hopefully I got the sails during this weak. If so happens we'll sail on saturday.

Hi Francisco, Welcome!

With a question so open, You will get hundreds of opinions

If you know what you are doing then fine, but if you are no expert, like most of us, get a professional survey from a reputable surveyor. He/she will identify things you will not have thought of. Of course it depends on the possible price but I think it's a wise investment. At a minimum you will get an itemized todo list and you can also use it to negotiate the price down as he/she will give you an estimated market value.

I won't go into the obvious stuff like rigging, hull, engine, keel and keel bolts, etc..
For an 85 look closely at the headliner. The foam backing tends to disintegrate and you will have no choice but to replace it. I try and do lots of the work myself . Partly for cost but also because if I do it, I know how to fix it in the future. Also below deck, Look also for telltale signs of leaks... The windows may need rebedding or hatches replacing...

You can look for a soft deck as well. All fixable for a price... Tell us how it goes! Also your location and where you plan to sail.

Thanks Waymar83,

At last Im ready with Virgos chainplates, check the pictures to see the result. Im quite satisfied with it. A tip if youd like to fix chainplates - take away the backboard before you start. Its much more easy to work. I took it away at the end, when I should drill for the threaded rods. Should have done that earlier .

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Well the cutlass bearing 7/8 x 1 3/8 is too small. But the North American sizes available, next one up is too big. The shaft appears to be 21.8mm and the inside diam of the strut is 36.2mm. Where does one get that kind of cutlass bearing.

In the meantime, had the old one put back as we launch tomorrow.

When you say wooden plate below the mast foot, do you mean the balsa core section underneath the mast step? if so what did you replace it with, Balsa or nidacore or something else? I have a few soft spots and am looking to open the deck up (from the top) and replace the soft wood. But I'm not sure what to use, 1/2 inch contoured balsa or nidacore.
Yesterday I put the last layer of epoxi and weave on the beams for the chainplates and I plan to fix the chainplates etc during this week. See the pictures below. I've test mounted one of the chainplates and you can also see the tie rod.

I mean the core section underneath the mast step. It was a little bit difficult to see what type of wood it was under the mast step, because the wood was rotten. I think it was some sort of a board, maybe made of balsa. The wood was inside a "chamber" with epoxi/plastic around and the fibre was laying in the same direction as the boat. I replaced it with marine plywood, weave and epoxi. I wasnt sure to use wood again, but i pre drilled the board with 25 mm holes in the positions for the screws that fix the mast step to the deck. Ill use 10 mm screws and the plan is that there will be no wood "in the air".

Im not sure what I should use instead of balsa if I should open up the deck and replace the core. I have no experience of Nidacore, but I have replaced the core in a smaller boat with divinycell which worked out well.

Another thing - I found out that the attachment between the roof in the saloon and the bulkhead in front of the nav table respectively the kitchen wasnt good anymore. I could move the bulkhead back and forward a few centimeter. I think it is the forces on the sheeting rail that has contributed to the problem. A little pice of weave and some epoxi and the problem is no more (se picture below)

Another thing again - Ive changed all the gas pipes. See the status of the pipe on the picture below. It looks a little bit worse than it is, but Im glad iIve changed them.

/Jonas
PS. I still dont know why the pictures are in the wrong position. DS.
