Some time ago I passed to the dark side (fiberglass, or fibreglass for you lymies), and purchased a purty C&C 24 - - many years ago I owned one of these on the severn, and used to commute to work with it. The one I now have has some trouble I never remember my old dear having. Her portholes are merely suggestive, and let the light in poorly, and the water in freely (which is what I believe portholes are designed to do, but noetheless...). So I want to bed them down with some 3200 for the season, but had designs on throughbolting both sides when time avails. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of thing?
Also, I need to replace the running rigging, and any thoughts on doing this satisfactorily without running me up a pole would be greatly appreciated.
