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 .

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.

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.

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

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Hello,

I told you lately about our plans to change the rig on our Virgo. The new mast is ready and were waiting for delivery I find out that the wooden plate below the mast foot were rotten, but that is fixed. Im 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 Ive made a beam and Ill do the same on the hull in the lucker.
Here are some pictures of the process. Ill post new one when Ive got further in the process.

/Jonas
PS. i dont 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 isnt 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 youre 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.
