Hi there to everyone still keeping tabs of this thread, my name is Alex, I’m a proud owner of Saltbox, a Bombay Clipper 76’, of the shoal draft persuasion at 3.5 feet.
I’m about to do a pretty heavy refit; the rigging, power plant, wiring. That’s just the stuff I’m planning on but I do not expect that list to stay short as I really start finding the nook and cranny Easter egg leaks and cracks some time uncovered on the hard will produce.
I just wanted to drop a post in the thread and maybe make contact with other owners, I’m kind of teaching myself as I go as far as all the refit work goes, I’m going to go slow and not get in over my head. but I look forward to learning from you guys as well as the rest of the community.
I do actually have a question to kick myself off here, do any of you have experiences with hinged or tabernacled masts? I’m thinking about making the switch, but I haven’t really found much about them in the 31 foot length.
