    Barney post attachment for 14.2 Keel boat

    Time will tell I guess! If they rip out, I'm sure you could fill with epoxy or something to get the screws to 'stick'! Best of luck!

    Barney post attachment for 14.2 Keel boat

    Interesting how thick you found it to be. Did you hit any metal when drilling?

    Save The mistress!

    I'm impressed you've got plumbing on your sailing dinghy ;) That's a pretty unique solution! Glad it is working out. I like your snugger tubes. Definitely on my list!

    Centerboard Stop Hose Replacement

    I ended up using the slightly smaller OD hose and it seems fine. I did order a replacement from Cat Direct, but it's on back order. I appreciate your reply. Happy sailing. (I am typing this on my phone and auto correct replaced sailing with sinking! Glad I have my readers on!)

    Warped hull reinforcement

    Did you get the boat lakeworthy? Where are you in Colorado? I'm in Fort Collins.

    What are the changes to the shape at the top of mast as compared to the model 1.

    Thanks for the information. Mine is 1999, well before the Selden spars were used, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't utilized for same purpose! The only block I have on the back of my boom is for the outhaul. But when I removed the line from that mast top eye strap, I recall that there was a...

    What are the changes to the shape at the top of mast as compared to the model 1.

    so from widest part of my mast (inside, beam to beam) is 2 1/32". outside is just under 2 7/32" from fore to aft (excluding the groove for the sail) see pic below, I was just a hair over 2 1/8" on inside. (ignore the reading from photo as i was just trying to illustrate where i was measuring)...

    BoomKicker (newbie) Question

    Thanks for nothing ;) I figured it out on my own sailing this afternoon! When the sail is down, you need something to hold the gooseneck down. The cunningham works or if you want to have that free (i.e., sail not attached yet) you can just run another line through gooseneck (same hole as...

    BoomKicker (newbie) Question

    Maybe I should be clearer! When the sail is down!

    What are the changes to the shape at the top of mast as compared to the model 1.

    Sorry, I don't know anything about that boat! Post in the laser forum (Laser Talk) and I'm sure someone can help. Best of luck.

    BoomKicker (newbie) Question

    Am I correct in that the only thing keeping the gooseneck from sliding up is the cunningham? I installed a a BoomKicker and without the cunningham holding down the gooseneck, the BoomKicker just acts as a fulcrum. Thanks for any info!

    New Owner Questions

    I know this is an old thread but curious how your ladders work? Is the side ladder connected to the barney post? I assume plenty strong? How about the drain hole ladder? Thanks for any info!

    Barney post strength

    I've heard others connect a ladder to the eyelet in transom that the aft hiking strap connects to. Makes me a bit nervous as the direction of pull is perpendicular to intended direction! I imagine the barney post would be strongest thing you could connect to! I was thinking about coming up with...

    What are the changes to the shape at the top of mast as compared to the model 1.

    Hi, better late than never. Here are some pics of my mast (Mod3 1999). You can't really tell from the photo, but there is some kind of plug below the masthead sheave (pulley). In the birdseye view, you can see an eye strap on portside of mast. I'm not sure if factory installed. There's a line...

    Centerboard Stop Hose Replacement

    Thanks! I probably should have explained better! The inner diameter fits perfectly. It's the outer diameter that's different. This will allow the centerboard to pivot down slightly more. Given your experience, I suspect it doesn't matter! Thanks again
