The backstay is without a doubt a problem. I've read the foot should attach on the windward rail, but I cannot figure out how to do that without wrapping around the stay.

Nice pics!

Surprised no one has chimed in on this yet. 

I think you would have better results if you moved the clew more to windward to open the gap between the stay sail and the main.  But the main backstay looks like it might be in the way.

We have used Oxiclean in the bathtub a few times with good results.  Soak for a day and agitate frequently.  Rinse well with a hose and spread out or fly to dry.  Maybe not as clean as a loft can do but cheap and safe for the fabric.

Pearson 365/367 Yacht Club / Tried out the mizzen stay sail...
Last post by S/V Legacy - July 16, 2024, 03:41:50 PM
So I finally did it... I put up my mizzen stay sail. I'm not sure it was set right, attached at the right places, or was tensioned enough. I attached the foot to a deck eye at the base of the main mast, and pulled the luff somewhat snug. I attached the clew end through a block with cam lock, onto to the end of my mizzen boom. The winds were pretty light that day, maybe 5-6 knots at the time. I did pick up about .5 knot after raising the stay sail.

This sail is pretty dirty, or stained, not sure. Its not rotten though. Anybody have any good ideas on cleaning this type of sail fabric?

Thank you, P69, for sharing. That's a big job but looks like it's worth it for no more leaks.

Oh man. When you said hero, I remembered another comment about the toe rail (maybe from you). I actually did that on the hook in the Bahamas.

Only had two issues. First was fiberglass wasn't happy being stored in such a high humidity environment for a couple of years.
Second was one of the tracks still tried to straighten out upon removal, and punctured one of the SUPs.

That is indeed a hero's laundry list of things to do.  Esp in Indiantown in the middle of summer!  Hope it all works out well for you.

How've you two been? Last I remember, you were shopping for a new sailboat after trawlering around for a bit.

Whew! It's been a hot minute, and I think I owe you all an update. It's been 4 years, and we haven't stopped floating. Up and down the East coast of Florida, and a full year in the Bahamas (with a quick flight for a visa extension).

We're now in Indiantown Marina, hauled out, with work progressing. We broke a chainplate during an accidental jibe (rig stayed up), sheared off the bolts between the propshaft and the v-drive, with a ridiculous fix to get us limping, adding starlink showed how inadequate my solar was (and how limiting my dodger and bimini are for adding more). So a new hardtop bimini and dodger to host more solar, davits to give us back our deck space, and an arch for even more. Stepping the masts, and replacing the main mast step, putting a wind generator on the mizzen, and putting actual mast steps on both.

Original fuel tank is leaking after some of the weather we've been through, so I'm getting a new aluminum one fabricated, and I'm leaning towards doing a 35 gallon with a 15 gallon day tank and polishing system. Haven't had issues with bad diesel yet, but we're pretty paranoid about that. Discovered that leak trying to track down some oil leaking from the engine. It's near the timing cover. She has still started every time without fail, so I'm doing everything I can to keep her going without repowering.

I did want to share one additional thing. Since I had to damage my v-drive rigging it up to keep limping along, I sent it in to Walter (they are still around, and still back their stuff), and the response I got was so hilariously passive aggressive proud. I've attached it.

I never did update this thread, but I put in a Lasdrop Gen 2 and really like it.  I have the seal just vented.  Even though at our speeds the mfr doesn't require cooling, I intend to hook it up to the raw water circuit for lube and cooling as I work on the raw water circuit.

I've only got a short amount of motoring time on it, but I am pleased so far.  We'll have to see how it performs when I really get a chance to put some hours on it motoring.

Cheers and thank you to all that replied.

The stuff has been riding around in my vehicle. I will try tomorrow to get it up here.  We are in the height of launch season.
