Oh, his message may be of us, too:


quote:

The tower of the unit will be 65" high. With around 20" underneath the boomkin, it will leave around 45" of the tower above it, which will be sufficient to avoid conflicts between the vane itself and the pulpit. If the pulpit surrounds the hole boomkin, make sure to keep 2" clear aft of the boomkin for the tower. The toprail can also surround the tower, as you can see in the photo below. On this photo, the diagonal struts reaches the hull. we dont do it like that anymore. They will be shorter and will reach the SS boomkin with a greater angle, providing a stronger fastening.

Thanks
Éric

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!
