Still need to take a picture....

Also replaced blue vinyl striping on the port side and top one on the starboard side..

Got my AS-40 Trogear bowsprit replacement yesterday and did a testfit. Should give me ~32" clearance to the bow..... the hinge is roughly offset to the outside by 1" to enable the sprit to move freely up past the rubrail to park position.

Question: You said 32'' clearance to the bow. I would like to know the what your angle is to the Bow eye that you are going to attach to?
I am getting ready to do the same thing but using a different manufacture of bow sprit. I am only going out too 24''. I have learned over years of rigging boats that anything inside of 10 degrees will be to narrow of an angle to hold the load of a spinnaker on a good puff or windy day. With that being said, I will not be using a purchase to hold it down, I am going to make eye to eye (splice) directly to the boat and sprit. I may rethink what I am doing if it's close to 10 degrees.

P.S. It's looks really fricking cool!!!!!

Mine extends the J by 36 inches. I wish I had added a foot more. But now the Bob stay that connects the bottom front of the sprint to the Bow eye is at about a 30% angle when the sprint is extended... so If I had used the last 12 inched of the sheldon sprint I would have had to add a lower bow eye. The Rigger thought the bob stay was over kill... but it makes me feel better.

Dave, I will install a second u-bolt closer to the waterline where the blue tape is..... still deciding on the size... might go with a 14/10 instead of the 20/14....

Please note that 24" is not enough based on my mock ups to clear the bow pulpit (if you install a furler...). Better check that!

Okay, I am starting to get bow prod envy....lol. I have a limit as to what I can do.
1. I will be racing in phrf.
2. I need to stay around in the 190's in phrf.
3. I am going from std. rig to tall rig.
4. Changing I from I=25.0 to I=29.0 ISP from 25.0 to ISP=31.2 and using using 180% girth measurements so the mid girth is 18'.9 and the luff 34'.5 in total makes spin area around 600sf
5. Boat can't handle anything bigger using a Code 0
I am setting up for a double head rig for breeze on reaching.
I am thinking my loads will be double yours.I don't think in need to go to 34" if it hits the bow pulpit I'll pull it and modify it.
For instance I am changing my winches to Barient 22's 2 speeds just so I can sheet and get the tack tight enough.

Just having fun

After doing what I've done to my boat (Sprint, Asym etc) I submitted the spec to Lake Norman keel Boat council to get a PHRF rating and they came back with 207... Thought you'd want to know from a compare perspective

Did you change the Rig height or the spin luff as I am doing? I am sure if you review the data I provided that the out come will be much different.

Finished the second reefing on my main sail today.

#5 spur grommets on both leech and luff:

IMG_7536.JPG


I did set the grommets some more after the picture was taken so the gap is mostly almost closed... again 5 layers of 5 oz Dacron in this area.....

Added additional straps for strength:

If this reef rips time for a new main sail......

I need warmer weather.


Replace gudgeons ( I have the new and improved ones waiting for installation.)

Re-install spinnaker halyard which I accidentally pulled through last summer. I have a fish tape already through mast.

Now -- here is a good question -- one really can not know if the halyards are not criss-crossed a few times going down the mast.

Clean and buff up the hull -- purchasing an electric buffer soon.

After I launch the boat I plan on modifying the trailer with 4 adjustable pads.
The two front and the two rear. The middle will stay fixed.
I already have 4 jackstands which will supply the screw/pad assembly.
Will just be a matter of cutting down the present stands and welding on the right size pipes.

Work on cleaning the bottom as I will be using VC-17 this season.
