Re: PSC 34 upcoming haul out
I will get some photo's of the rig with the mizzen.
I do not have much experience with it yet. PS did not change the sail plan, it is a cutter rig, when they added the mizzen. It is a fairly small sail at 50 sqft. The back stay is split. When the sail is in use the monitor self steering vane will not work. So I have removed the monitor system until I decide what to do with the mizzen. It serves as a mount for the radar (not working presently) and a wind generator (which I am not sure is working). I am still sorting stuff out while trying to get some sailing in. I am trying to concentrate on the, important to sailing, things first.
So far the mizzen looks interesting set. It also keeps the boat from sailing around the anchor when set at anchor. When the anemometer, again not sure if it is calibrated, hit 40+knots at anchorage it really made a racket slatting.
Yes, the deck fill fittings do need re-bedding. Thanks for some insight on how to go about that......after I get the boat back on the water! (I would like to borrow that wrench.)
Thanks again for the experience and knowledge passed on. It is both very nice and gratifying to get experienced opinions and helpful hints from sailors.
