Mast base organizer?

JCM,

I put mahogany risers under the organizers and clutches. Epoxied and fared in the corners with triangular strips with one side having a radius, sanded to a smooth radius and epoxied it all in, sanded again, filled any nicks with epoxy filler, sanded again and painted.

I raised the halyards up off the deck for two reasons! I don''t like that green stuff growing under the lines when not in use, a big problem here in the Pacific NW. And the organizers would have required some special geometry with the angle of the deck, the angle of the organizers combined with the exit height of the halfmoon blocks. Plus there''s less of an opportunity for the halyards to wear the deck paint.

The vessel is an old (79) Choate 40 IOR racer. The gelcoat has seen better days so paint is it''s outer coat now, making it easy to make modifications without worry.

Now, I just need to close in the cockpit and raise the winches. Then she''ll look like a Swan 40. Same hull design.

Geez DelmarRey, nice job!
Quick question; Your organizers & linelocks are all mounted off the deck. Did you glass in these mounts or were they factory? (And what''s the boat?)

cheers,

Originally the halfmoon blocks were mounted to the deck with thru bolts. I wanted to add 1 extra block and rearrange them for organizers, so I had to fill all the holes and redrill.

After filling and fareing, I placed the blocks on deck where I wanted them and drew a line around them.

Took measurements and cut out a piece of SS plate the shape of a horseshoe, modified.
Then put the blocks back and marked where the holes go. Drilled the holes in the plate then transfered them thru the deck.

Also put another plate on the inside. After all the holes were drilled in the deck
I placed the inside plate on the underside and transfered the holes.

Then drilled all the holes in the deck overside and filled with epoxy/filler, let cure, then redrilled again using the upper plate.

Finished up the deck with paint, sealed the upper plate and holes with 3M 101. And that''s it.

It was a lot of work, but well worth it. It not only looks better but it''s stronger as well.............._/)

Page 38 and 39 of the Selden catlog (www.seldenmast.com) show some plates that mount under the mast heel. Those may work well for you.

You may want to take a look at Seals & Spars in California...they have plates of various sizes.

I had a similar issue with my former 25''trailerable. Added spinnaker gear, vang etc, but didn''t want to put more holes in the coachouse. Made my own out of stainless plate, large enough to fit under the mast base/tabernacle with full length tabs sticking out on all four sides. Worked very nicely, though should''ve used a thicker guage as there was some bending near the vang.

Go to www.dwyermast.com, check under "hardware" for "halyard organizer plates" for the basis of my idea.

You can do a cut & paste if that link doesn''t display correctly.

cheers,
