    Replacing spreader info and questions

    Thanks J24_Nancy. Mine has a bar that protrudes and I am not sure if it's a thru-bar but it does have an angle. The spreaders I took off had a bit of the back milled off so to get more angle. I got an angle guage for building and I will use that to try to drill holes.

    Replacing spreader info and questions

    After searching, I found our spreaders (2nd gen spreaders, foil shape) at Dwyer Mast PN DH2503C 30" for about $60 ea with shipping. I have read as much as I can find about angles etc. but had some questions. 1) do people have and use spreader adjusters? Ours had them but the welding shop...

    Gin Pole for Mast Stepping? Anyone have instructions / images to share?

    I would add to the VinceH info that if you use spectra or an old halyard that is good quality for the gin pole shrouds, it keeps the whole rig stable. It gets precarious and your first time you'll be nervous but it works well. Also, tie a line to the loop under the spreaders that you use to...

    Simrad Tiller Autopilot

    I have used one before and they work surprisingly well. Not on a j24 though. Have to make sure the plug is good as you don't want it losing power if aren't paying attention for awhile.
