Hi Bud,

43#44

1. In the survey you did for my boat you suggested drilling a drain hole at the base of the mast. How big a hole and how high from the bottom of the step?

2. Just met the guy at the end of my dock who has a 43 as well. He doesn't remember the hull #, but the boat is called Tachyon. He claims to be an original owner (1977). The boat needs alot of work and is kind of run down. What hull # is she?

3. His boat is a tall rig cutter, but has an extra set of chainplates the furthest aft. What are these?

4. The very topmost plate of my compression post where it meets the fiberglass coachroof is approx 6" x 4". I noticed in a picture of Niniwahuni (Ted's 43) that his plate is much bigger, maybe 24" x 16" . Which is normal and adequate? Incidentally, mine was installed so the stainless was bolted through the ash headliner. Termites got into the ash, and the whole mess compressed that half inch. The manual explicitly told them to cut away the ash where the compression post was but they didn't do it.

Thanks!

Adam

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
