Swap Meet / 44 Walkover Parts
« Last post by Jules Shockley on November 20, 2017, 12:02:00 PM »
I recently installed dingy davits with new rails. Should have done this 10 yrs ago. I have the aft 2 piece pulpit in good shape if anyone needs it. Also the God awful, original midships boarding ladder, and a port trailboard in good shape. Free to a good home, but you'll have to pick up as shipping would be darn near impossible. Perhaps you are in Florida or traveling through for the holidays. I am in Hobe Sound, near Stuart if anyone is interested. Almost forgot..a 44 w/o.

Hat off to Rick, he peeled the bottom and built up a new layer.
As good as new now.
Never had delamination problems when I owned Rhapsody, had a few mini-blisters but it was in the gelcoat only. My surveyor was not concerned amd when I sold Rhapsody to Andrew in May 2013, his surveyor did not find any delamination either, clean bill of health, bottom and boat.
Age finally caught up and Rick, the 6th owner of Rhapsody, 1979 CSY 33, hull #19 did the right thing putting on a new bottom.

LittleSkipper - Thx. Too many fragile electronic components for me. I'm going with solid, simple, & reliable with a readily accessible body of reference to help me along the way.

All Hands - I did not find any electrical schematics in the Dropbox but there is a wealth of other info there. Check it out if you haven't already.

I'm not making any promises over here but I will do my best to draw up & share the electrical schematic of Tempest as I go along.

Cap'n Mike - Draw it up as you're rip snorting thru the electron maze! Ha! You show me yours & I'll show you mine!

Hi Mike,

I would take a picture of what you are trying to replace (assuming someone here doesn't pop up with one from their garage), and email it to the used marine hardware places (salvage yards) (with some rough dimensions).  We have a partial list here:

A photo here might also get better results, as I can't quite picture what you're looking for. 

I did do a quick search on eBay but didn't come up with anything.  Is it possible that a stop from another manufacturer might fit?

Hello All,

I am looking for the adjustable track stop for the stay sail traveler. One of mine is shot and it is not repairable. Checked with Rig-Rite and it is not available and the complete kit cost more than a complete new system. They were made by Nicro-Fico who is long out of business.

Any help would be appreciated.

I never saw this problem. Have been using my 37B since 1998. Ditto on previous boat, also a 37B.

Regarding rewiring: I may be in for something similar but I am not looking for it anytime soon.  Have you consider a BUS system?  Nigel Calder has it and wrote about.  I found a link to a discussion about it here

Hey there team -

I've got a couple of Rubbermaid bins of tools/gear that I need to get to RD. If anybody is headed that way & willing to schlepp one or two of them for me, I'd be willing to repay in kind, trade out some labor when you get there, or just pay a fair price for the favor.

Ping me if you're willing.

Much mahalo!
