Re: OEM Standing Rigging ?

Joshua, I haven't heard of anyone on this board having lost their rigging unexpectedly. On replacing, I'm the kind of person that enjoys DIY, so I would never consider paying $$$ to do what I can do, except of course I do pay for swaging. Measuring can be tricky in some cases. I just finished with a...

I tend to agree. I think of it like this...imagine the boat in mid air, now lower the keel 60 degrees, not heel the boat over 20 degrees. Has gravity had an effect on it,..you betcha! I'm guessing Chrysler had that in mind when adding it to the later models. Again, to be the most effective you need ...

Thanks for the tip on Gut-Rot, I may use that. I did some more poking around and found that the rot is fairly extensive. The top portion of the plywood seems solid, but it's rotted, and in some spots still damp (!), down toward the bottom of the compartment and to the "half moon" around the keel pi...

not at all an expert on the C22 keel, but there are more forces while under sail than just "supporting" the weight of the keel. Guess I'm overcautious, but in my experience of doing 30 years of hardware design I'd think the entire hull including the trunk act as a single "monohull" structure. There...

I'm sure it can be rebuilt, but the question is how to do it and how long would it take; or how much would it cost to have a shop do it. I guess I'm glad I saw that, I was hoping to get it in the marina next week. An even scarier thought is that even though I didn't see it, or it wasn't visible las...
