Hi: (Westsail 32 #567)

I have 21 of the 25 5/16 SS PH MS from the stbd jig track removed for resealing (rain water leaks into the lockers below).
I plan on drilling out the remaining 4 bolts as I can't get to 2 of them (at the aft end) and the other 2 are obstructed with the cap rail bolts.

Does the Jib track really need 25 5/16 SS bolts to hold the load? I'd like to shorten the track on the aft end near the wench as I can't reach them behind the fuel tank and seal and skip the ones obscured by the cap rail bolts.

What if I bolt through every other bolt hole in the track and seal up the rest of the holes through the cap rail?

What is your suggestion?

Jay

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!
