It may be winter, but new friendships make it better.! Stuart Bleacher and Jennifer Lever, from Toronto and John and Beverly Blais from Virginia talking 36.7 racing over dinner at the Hampton Yacht Club.
In case you didn't know, West Marine are running a 40% off sale on running rigging at the moment. What diameters are people running for jib sheets, main, headsail and kite halyards? All 12mm / 1/2"? Any favorite brands/makes?
I am looking for some used sails for our 36.7 Contagious.
- 1.5 oz heavy air Kite
- #4 Jib
- A kite
If anyone has something that they would like to sell, please drop me a line.
I am considering buying a secondhand 36.7, together with two friends. Today, we had a look at one that is for sale. I have a few questions:
1. How comfortable is the seating outside and inside? Outside, I noticed that the backs of the seats are quite low and are not really supportive. Inside, the seat is getting quite small in the front, is that annoying for you owners?
2. Where do you stow away the fenders and stuff? There is no real storage locker on deck, nothing under the seats...
3. Is there a possibility to make an outside-table?
Thanks from Holland, cheers, Eelko.
We purchased our 36.7 last summer and are looking to replace a wet section of deck core in the cockpit. Has anyone here done so? How did you match the non-skid? Thoughts on whether the class would approve replacing it with teak? The only mention of non skid in the class rules is that you can paint over it, but can't remove it as it would significantly reduce weight. We mostly cruise, but would hate to take the boat out of one-design configuration.
