Hull and Rig / Re: Barient Winch
« Last post by Matthew Balch on August 10, 2019, 07:51:34 AM »
Hi Cam,
The springs and pawls should be easy to find.  Aside from replacing those, most winch issues can be resolved by a good cleaning and greasing.
My main sheet winch is a Barient 27 self tailer.  I've had it apart a few times for servicing.  If I ever was to need a major part for it, I would simply purchase a used Barient 27 ST on EBay for parts.  There's a couple for sale now.  Good luck!

Coming up with a big goose egg on the Barient 20. Looks like a Barlow 20 would work but nothing on a 20, so, taking recommendations on what to replace with. This boat is new to me so I feel like am VERY green at this suddenly. last thing I really want to do is add more holes to the deck...
Interior / Re: Door for head

Silly me. Yipe I am the culprit for door sticking. It was a stupid mistake. For details see my blog:
Thankfully, my sailing go-to friend, Mike, ground the hinges off the door. Anyone want a door? Really a curtain will work just fine, weigh less and might even make the boat interior look a little softer.
I appreciate those who made suggestions...I did try to undo the hatch but my hand isn't small enough or long enough to reach across the narrow amount it opened.

I am getting ready to purchase an autopilot. One comment by the owner of a CSY 33 states:
"They are definitely undersized for a 33 with a severe weather helm."  How can that be if the same unit powers a CSY 44. I like the idea of having a spare, so if anyone has an older one at a good price (cheap) I am interested. I'd like to get underway in November...

Hi Cam,

Have your tried this source?

Also both West Marine and Defender came up as a source for spares, but may be only the simple stuff.

Anyone have an idea as to where to find parts for a Barient #20? Been scouring the internet but coming up empty

I forgot to post this it turns out the seacock barrels were fine.....the boatyard (Deaton’s in Oriental, NC) apparently didn’t know how to lap the barrels and were too lazy to use google.  They media blasted them !!! Insane.....I was fortunately able to later remove, lap and grease them and they have all been fine and leakproof since.  Since this occurred in year number two of our big boat ownership, I mistakenly assumed a professional boatyard would know how to perform seacock  maintenance better than I.  They also installed the handles in the wrong orientation so they looked closed when they were actually open.  New rule of thumb......DIY if you want it done correctly or at a minimum double check all proposed procedures and watch the pro so you can do it next time.  Live and learn.

It looked like a pretty clean install from outside.....not so much from inside....and the new gasket
