PT Chain Plates

Recommended Posts

Shoom that system was put together by a bunny who couldnt use a measuring tape!!! look how many shackles are being used!! thats is rediculous.

the left hand side chainplate would be better served by an RF2331 and a correct length stay.

and the right would be much better with RF1578M0304 type 1 turnbuckle.

not sure if these fitting's existed in the early 80's.

HooD : that setup was off one of the top 20 boats!

infact going by the foreword the manual was released in 1980. generally though it is still very relevant, a few things such as sail cuts and centreboards have changed obviously , but the (very indepth) sections about setting rig tension are spot on.

I use Staymasters on the lower backstays, as they can be adjusted more readily and in smaller increments.

3/32 STAYMASTER fittings @ US$25
