  7. CrestCat Help Request

    For $150, I can supply a v/good mainsail (and possibly a jib) and  used rigging (ex Marcat) that could be adjusted to fit, also tillers, and most hardware, but you would have to make disc type rudders yourself. My ph 0243591729
  8. $200, good cond, ph 02 43591729
  9. The mast section is the same as Maricat 4.3, but the base and support are different style.
  10.    Most Mk1s would be 40/50 years old and some still turn up with useable cast alloy bits (depends on maintenance and a regular rinse)Stainless and Al are a long way apart on the galvanic scale, so electrolysis is a problem, that's why we reassemble our boats using dissimilar metal compound (usually Duralac) between stainless and Al and on all Al rivets.   You will be welcome at state or nat champs, but I would not turn up with carbon fibre parts and expect no reaction, specially on parts that the manufacturer still supplies. As the current measurer, and a thoroughly easy going bloke, I would offer you the loan of a set of castings to head of any action.                           
  11. Great original condition 4.3, $1000

    02 43591729, Mannering Pk NSW 2259, White hulls, yellow decks, multi coloured sails, good unreg trlr (rego available at extra) All in almost as new cond. Original tramp (Centre tension).
  12. Front castings should clean up (I have them if yours break), $20 each side.
  13. A photo of the damage would help, If you are not worried about appearance (I wouldn't) just grind of gelcoat for about 4" either side and below damage and glass up I can supply the stainless Mk2 fittings (Replaces the cast alloy) modified with 1/4" saddles an bolts (As fitted to current models). You can also spread the load with triangular stainless plates bolted to the hull and folded 90 degrees and bolted to the 4 bolts already through the gunnel, you can cut out part of the storage compartment to gain internal access. Give me a call if i've confused you. 02 43591729.  
  14. Tiller Pivots

    Similar to Petes' solution, I just use ronstan pintles (similar to what is bolted to the transom) with 1" space, riveted to tiller inside face, then Rods idea for crossbar adjustment. The crossbar ends have to be rounded so they don't bind. Fit hem to the crossbar first, to get best alignment with tillers.  
  15. Broken Rudder Lever Clips

    In leu of auto kickup, a 3" loop of 10mm bungee in the fixed end of the 2 to 1 system, works great and protects from transom damage.
