Deck Flexing Under Load - 37B
« on: May 14, 2015, 11:37:19 AM »
Anyone with a 37B notice the deck flexing upward when the mainsheet is under a moderate to heavy load? The teak spindle next to the galley lifts about 3/4" in 20 kts of wind with first reef in. The spindle next to the nav station is loose enough to spin easily by hand. Neither move when there is no load on the sheet. There are cracks around the traveller fiberglass but the only appear to be gelcoat. Any ideas, opinions or experiences would be appreciated.

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