Putting a VHF radio in my boat, running antenna up mast etc etc. 1. Who makes a good small antenna to put on the top of the mast. 2. Who makes a good through deck fitting for the VHF wire.

Need something that can easily be taken apart to step the mast.

I have one that is attached on the port side.. It's annoying! If I knew how to patch the hull and do a professional job where it would not show that there was anything there I would ship it to you )

haha, can't be that hard of a patch, just throw some fiberglass on it and let it ride.

I just need something that is small, 1' ish. and rubber preferrably, so i don't knock it off the first time I step the mast. (I keep mine on the trailer and rig it everytime I take it out)

Just go to any electronics shop, & buy a VHF cable connector that has a flange to bolt it to the deck. Then seal it down with some good marine sealant. I ran my wires between the deck & cabin ceiling so no wires show. Good luck with the install.

NA-23 Keel Fix?

I have a 1976 NA-23, we kept it on a mooring here in Michigan this summer. I went to pull up the centerboard on Saturday and had the line break, it is currently on the mooring and I have no idea how I am going to get it out of the water or fix it.

I am intrigued by the fix with the pulley. Do you have any more info on how you did the fix, such as where does the line attach to the centerboard, is it inside our outside the fixed keel? Did did you remove the centerboard during the project? How does the centerboard come out from the swing point?

Any help would be appreciated!

Ben

My parents bought a 1976 NA-23 when I was 2 years old. They sold it to upgrade to a Catalina 27, 30, and then 34. We ran across the boat for sale in Ferrysburg, Michigan in 2005 and purchased it for $2200. It had been full of water sitting on the trailer, pushed in the hull. After pumping out the water and adjusting the trailer, the hull popped back out and it was on to restoration work.

My keel always sticks down. when I run it up on the trailer, the trailer pushes it up. Sorry, can't help with the pulley fix, but I'm definitly interested in it too.


You don't have any pictures from the top side of the pulley do you?
