Re: Mast wiring replacement

its now mid November, the mast is still off, its been stripped repainted evry nut bolt washer rivet replaced, new rigging all new electrics, just waiting for a suitable time between myself and the rigger to put it back on and then I can go sailing again. what an adventure, my wife and I did most of the work ourselves at David lambournes yard at Hemmant in Queensland AU, We now know the mast inside out, even added 2 mice per conduit so any future issues can be solved easily, found a leak in one of the cabin windows, of course had to destroy the frame getting it open so now have new tinted safety glass windows all round, over the next few weekends I will be fitting the new elec head, then hook up the refrigeration, so all good here

Re: Mast wiring replacement

ha did better than that, took the mast off had it restored and repainted, new wiring, sheaves, standing rigging and halyards, just trying to get some time to put it all back together and put the mast back on and go sailing, soon I hope, mast has been off since december, but we have had floods, and lots of rain here

JeffPaes My 1979 IP 40 has a conduit as well, but it seems to be in 2 sections with a break at the Steaming / Deck light fixture. Last week I had to pull a N2K cable through for a new wind instrument and it was easy to do if you take your time and use coduit grease from HD on the first yard or so of the new cable. I used the old Data Marine cable as the lead line.
