    Today we have set the new shaft strut in place with epoxy and tomorrow we will bed in with sikaflex with bolts.

    With the state of that strut make sure you check out any other fittings below the waterline. Galvanic corrosion rarely affects only one fitting! I've had a through hull snap off from galvanic corrosion. I'm sure you know this but worth stating for the record!

    Truly gorgeous boat and it looks like you're doing right by her. Very heartening to see.

    Yes we checked all the through hull and all have been replaced, that strut looks like it had been on the boat many years... and here is a good side picture i took yesterday!

    Ok today we got the strut block epoxy in and bedded the strut in with Sikaflex and all bolted in, tomorrow we re-tighten the bolts, align the shaft, install the new bearing!

    Well done ...phase 1!
    Must be frustrating not to go for just a little drift down the harbor!

    We are at phase II, the masts are out and the rig is junk... I thought is was better that it was... time to get to work and the last guy just had too much going on up there, time to make some changes back to original rig.

    The rigging "tangs" are actually sort of clever! But will be much better to do a proper spliced eye! Dyneema rig? Are the spars salvageable? Did that VHF antennae get hit by lightning?!

    Hi Madison
    Yea the tangs with hose clamps or not what i was expecting! we are going to do the spliced eyes not just sure yet if we will try the Dyneema rig... the spars look good so far once we get the rigging off we will see better, it sure looks like something hit that VHF...

    Well I vote for they Dyneema for this type of rig. Its so much lighter, several times stronger, and can be spliced easily by hand. The ease and strength of the splice is the real draw.

    Serve it full length and its basically permanent as well.

    Only consider the heat set stuff, Dux or STS-HSR.

    I will have to try it... look at this photo of the top of the mast, he has running rig and 2 stays on top of the main halyard! its a wonder the rig did not snap at that point. On the original rig drawing all the rig was below that point.

    Nice work! Are you going to repaint or finish bright?

    You could have that rust stained, stainless, electro polished while you are doing the other work. Or, you may opt for Everdure Bronze which will turn a nice shade of green! At any rate it is great to see what you are doing for one of the best West Coast schooners still sailing!

    Pity about the boom, it would only add a day or two to scarf on more length. But then you would need new sails....

    If in a hurry, easier to sail with the old one while a new one is on the spar bench.

    That is a proper pin rail for sure! Looking good! Those decks can be cleaned with a cross grain scrub using Dawn dish soap, a scrubby pad and a bit of citric acid. Citric can be sprinkled on the wet decks after the Dawn scrub. It won't rail the wood grain and will give a Bristol Fashion look to the decks. Chemical supply houses sell citric in bulk. It is easy on your decks, seam compound and hands! Still give it a final rinse to wash it off and get the best looking decks in SF.
