Very cool!

FWIW, my 44 has a rating of 122 degrees.

Hylas Discussion / Re: Mast Stepping Plate - Damaged?
« Last post by Ripple on February 24, 2021, 09:49:21 PM »
I violated my own rule a used an apostrophe that wiped out my missive. As I was saying, mast bend, even slightly, is preferable so reverse bend can not happen; think of bending a paper lip back and forth. Without currently being on our boat, I recall the mast sitting on an I beam that sits on the keel. If the beam is somehow damaged, I would think it would distort the hull, highly unlikely. The floor joists rest on the beam so reinforcing the floor would do nothing. The sailmaker should determine the amount of bend the mast should have. The luff of the headsail under load will determine the tension on the back stay. When sailing in 15-20 kts on a beat, the leeward shrouds should be under no tension, loose but not sloppy loose. The deck is somewhat supported by the mast and an adjustment for that is in the mast locker. However, it nearly never needs adjustment.

If the rig was tightened enough to bend the mast then it is possible the mast step was damaged.  He was driving the mast through the bottom of the boat.

There is no LOOS gauge big enough to handle our rigging, so it is not an exact science.  Was the rigger playing guitar on the shrouds?

Perhaps your insurance should get involved?

Hylas Discussion / Mast Stepping Plate - Damaged?

Hi All.

When I bought Mazu (H46, #61) in October the surveyor suggested a rigging adjustment. So, I hired a rigger who had come highly recommended. He over tightened the rigging and I know it caused issues (sternward rake snd slight bow to the mast, sticking doors to mast and forward cabin).

She is on the hard and I hired another rigger to come evaluate the rigging. I received this.

I went aboard your boat, to check some things about mast. I noticed (doubt that I already had) that the mast base plate compressed the floor by subsequently pulling the deck. So, unfortunately, the best solution for me is to remove the mast and reinforce the floor.

My question to you all ... does this make sense? Is it possible? I will also ask Queen Long, but in the meantime would appreciate any insights.

Best.

Danny, did you ever get dimensions for your hatch?

I just got mine back from HatchMasters today so am able to take detailed measurements if you still need them.

119.8, not 119.smiley face!  Not sure how that happened.

Thanx again Joel. The only one I had was the generic qlmarine address

Thanks Bob - it looks like the Stability datasheet I received from German Frers is for the shoal draft H46 (1.66 m), and the one you received from QL is for the deep draft H46 (2.036 m), hence the difference in LImit of Positive Stability rating (114.5 vs. 119.8). Both measured and issued on the same dates. Very helpful.

Attached is the data sheet I received recently from QL for our H46 #58 (2006)
