Hello, Happy new year. Does anyone have dismounted the piedestal ? There is too much gap and the wheel is not well fixed moving when i shake itfrom forward to back. Nothing from star board to port side. Ball bearings ? No noises. But how to remove this heavy piedestal pyramid ? Thanks to you.
A while back someone posted a question about a cockpit table. I had also been pondering that question for a while. Last year I came to the realization that I already had a perfectly good table--it was down below and just held in place by two set screws.
So, I went to a music store and purchased a (cheap) stand for an electric piano. I had the cross-arms shortened on the top so they would fit into the cavity under the table, as well as a new hole drilled for the pivot point so it would be the right height.
Here's the completed table stand bungeed to the mast, a pic of the table looking up (shows the shims added to the side to keep it steady), and dinner time in Montague Harbour BC. Bon Appetit!
After 11 years of very successful racing and unforgettable cruising, the time has come to find a new owner for the most amazing sailboat I ever sailed. Retirement plans will unfortunately not do justice to fully enjoying Southern Cross and doing everything we are planning for the next few years. We have owned and loved her since new and she is probably the best of both worlds (Racing Yacht and Performance Cruiser). She is in outstanding condition with many upgrades and optional extras. Sought after performance shallow draft version that has allowed us to see places of the Chesapeake, ICW, East Coast Inlets, rivers and marinas that never would have been accessible with a deeper draft! She is in outstanding condition and will make any new owner proud in racing or visiting marinas and anchorages. Incredible racing record that includes more first places than all the other positions together, as well as overall PHRF Champion of the Chesapeake Bay Yra
