Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Hello,

I told you lately about our plans to change the rig on our Virgo. The new mast is ready and we´re waiting for delivery I find out that the wooden plate below the mast foot were rotten, but that is fixed. I´m in the process of mounting the new chain plates, which will be placed to the hull in the locker in front of the kitchen respectively that nav table. The chain plate will be connected to the rig on deck with a tie rod. To strengthen the deck I´ve made a beam and I´ll do the same on the hull in the lucker.
Here are some pictures of the process. I´ll post new one when I´ve got further in the process.

/Jonas
PS. i don´t know why the pictures are up and down etc. DS.

Hello Waymar,

It sounds a little bit improbable that the sea water should come from the rudder, unless it isn´t a leak/crack where the hull meets the rudder stock. In our Attalia we have a tube which is fixed to the hull in the place were it meets the rudder stock. I think that in the case were the hose clamp is loose it might be leaking, but in this case it would not be any difference if you were sailing on starboard or port bow. If you should have a crack were the rudder stock meets the hull, this could explain why you got salt water when you´re sailing on a specifik bow. This according to pressure on the rudder. What do you think about this?

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Is the packing gland the issue on the rudder? I would imagine you would have to drop it, reseal then reinstall. My rudder has bee out to pull the shaft to replace the engine shaft packing gland to a dripless. I did not do the work, so can not help you.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Feb 23rd. Sailing has been good in Barbados!. Did the Round Barbados Race with a new Genoa the week of January 18th. It still took us 13.5 hrs but in light winds. Overall we did well. 4 of 9 in the Coastal racing series. She's been pointing really well. I'm no racer but I enjoy maximising speed. In the Round the Island we beat a Catalina 40.5 and a Jeanneau 44. The Catalina usually beats us handily. Did a lot of work on the boat. I had no idea saltwater takes so much out of a boat. She has aged more these last two years than in the previous 10. But then again, I've never sailed so much.

Did some maintenance. The winches work like new after greasing them! Wired the bilge pump with a water witch bilge switch (don't know about you guys but the bilge kinda sucks. no room for a float switch so I installed an electric one instead). Reran a new VHF cable up the mast as the old one had corroded at the base. (I think I can talk with Europe now...on vhf). Started replacing connections that just seem to corroded. Got my old Stowe Micro Depth Sounder to work again. Stowe Micro 210 Knot meter still not working but I have speed on the GPS so its less of an issue.

Back to the eternal leak. As you all remember, I have developed a pesky leak below deck, especially when healing (therefore only when underway). Tried all sorts of methods to find it and decided that the leak is definitely from the aft portion of the boat. None of the thru hulls leak. The only thing left is the muffler (doubtful) or.... the rudder.!!!! I am now convinced this is the source. It makes sense. The leak began only after shipping the boat down so the rudder could have sustained a knock (without bending or breaking anything visible). So now... how do I know for sure? Can I remove the rudder with the boat in the water and if so, how. I have the tiller steering (which I prefer).

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

My winches were Barbarossa's, same as Harken, use all harken parts etc, as harken bought the Barbarossa plant. Lewmar is a bit different on the how to pull apart, but at the end of the day, I service the one lewmar, 3 Barbarossa's the same as far as amount of grease etc.

Dear Jonas
I realize now that you do the same. Difficult when not having the thread in front of you when replying.
Sorry -

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Dear Jonas
We set the genakker as you do, but with only one winch. When setting the genakker, the genoa sheet is fixed in a horizontal sheet stopper/rope clutch, which is mounted on the deck a little after the winch and a little towards the side of the boat. So, we cannot trim the genoa while setting the genakker, but this is rarely a problem.
I can take a photo if you want it.
Best regards

Hi Waymar,

It´s more like a luxury "problem" or an opportunity when we have a pair of winches. We use to set the gennaker outside the genoa before we take in/down the genoa. That is no problem with only one winch thanks to the clutch. It would be better to have two winches when go from gennaker to the genoa and in that case use the aft winch for the gennaker and the other for the genoa. I wouldn't buy a pair of winches to this. As you mentioned Waymar, there isn't so much space to use.
