On my 1990 37, those bolts actually do have nuts. Getting at them required cutting a small access panel, and then covering the new hole with a small vent. It seems that some boats have aluminum...

I am using a system that Terry at YachtFitters figured out. When the inner forestay is being stored, the staysail halyard is also free - this uses the halyard to tension the forestay at the shrouds....

Hi KarlinD,

Most of my removable forestay is pretty standard compared to the others I've seen. They may no longer make the deck/stay fitting anymore, I believe there was a different thread in...

Hi KarlinD,

With the 95 jib on the forestay and having to swap, that does add a complication. Although, everything is a compromise in sailing, I guess the trick is being happy with the ones you...

Hi KarlinD,

I'm curious about how your 135 and 95 would be configured. Would the working jib be on the forestay or the staysail stay? If on the forestay, is it on a furler or hank on? In my...

Fixed!

Well, rebuilding the Racor seemed to have done the trick - the leak is fixed. I suspect it was the deformed check ball seal as shown in the earlier post.

Today after a week, the racor bowl was...

My boat came with a 114% (as measured by a local sail loft) genoa. The clew is higher than normal - some call it a yankee, some call it a genoa. I'm not sure what it was sold as.

A little update. I used the seal kit to rebuild my Racor today. So far so good, but it will take several days of not using the boat to see if the leak remains. I'll update when I'm sure. (I...
