Mk2 rear beam on a Mk1

Recommended Posts

Hello

I am wanting to know if anyone has any photos of modifying a Mk1 to take a Mk2 rear beam that they could please post here?

 

Cheers

D

Wrap the end 30 cm of the beam in alfoil, mask off the area where the old beam sat, lay a bed of bog and bolt the Mk 2 beam in.

Remove and replace beam when dry to remove alfoil.

Ohhh Damianc I feel your pain. I hate my Mk1 travel system as well. How much would a Mk 2 one cost Darcy and do you have a tramp going as well or would  it be best to ask if you have a Mk2 for sale, or know of one?

Looks good. Make sure that your mainsheet attachment to the boom, is back far enough to keep the traveller aligned, with traveller at centre of beam.

Thanks Darcy. I will check that on the weekend when I rig the boat for the first time with the new stays etc.
