Re: packing nut

Thanks.

I did get my terminology wrong.
But the process is as I suspected. The only thing that perplexed me was the very small space between the nut and the thread part of the assembly. But I...

packing nut

Hi,
Please see picture attached. Am I correct in labelling the stuffing box and packing nut?
There is very little room between the packing nut and the thread. You can see the shaft a bit. ...

Re: Hank on to furler

So, perhaps doing the entire assembly myself and paying riggers to do the actually install (ie. climbing mast; measuring and connecting new stay) may be a reasonable solution.

I am handy and not...

Re: mainsail cover

Actually I do have a newer and bulkier main sail. I could always use extra ties at the bottom of the cover. I am hoping to pay 150 vs 300-400.

mainsail cover

Hi,

What size mainsail cover would I need for a C&C 27 Mk III?

There are some pre-made ones cheaper than ordering a new one, so just wondering if I should order 10, 11, 11.5 feet.

Thanks.

Re: Hank on to furler

Thanks. Those were my thoughts: to replace the forestay. I just haven't researched the different systems and wasn't sure if they come with new forestays or not.

Hank on to furler

Re: SW Ontario - Winter cover

That would be the most preferable option.

Do you think it is possible?

Cut from the bow end to the mast? and re-seal?

Hi,

My topping lift is always rubbing on the mainsail leech and batten pockets. Should I be concerned or par for the course?

Re: drip drip

Tighten bolts: will do.

Any experiences with Captain Tolleys? Seems like a reasonable quick fix.

Re: mainsail batten

Just to clarify: the stress on the sail comes from the luff side of the sail, when the main is down and batten is stretched from across the boom and up towards the mast. Perhaps I am just folding...
