Subject: Setting Stancheons
In reply to: Vernon Bonnell 's message, "Hull # 54 reporting for duty..Mariner 32'" on - Wednesday - 03/17/10 - 10:18pm

Need some help over here. I'm setting stancheons for safety lines and I know they need to be placed ever so right for the sheets to work.
Can an anonymous fellow take a minute and measure from the bow shackle (where the safety line meets the gangplank) to the foot of the first stancheon and the same to the second and third ?
Thank you before hand .

I measured the stanchion locations on Murre a while back. Go here for my results: http://www.marineryachts.com/archives/M31-%2032%20-%20Life%20Line%20Stanchion%20Specs.html

One further suggestion: On Murre, water gathers at the stanchion base where it touches the toe rail for several of the mid boat bases. So, move them in board so that there is a little pass through between the back of the base and the toe rail.

[> [> [> stanchion placement starboard side -- Vernon M32 # 54, - Wednesday - 03/24/10 - 9:30pm

Thank you, Randall #1 for showing me there are awesome pics of Murre in the archives on the MOA site and #2 for taking the time to meticulously graph your journey through time and rotted layers of substrate.

I am quizzical , however , of the starboard placement of the p2 stanchion being 120 1/2 " from p1 (the first stanchion)
In the final pic of Murre as she was about to be splashed , the first two posts are fastened and the starboard side is just slightly aft of the bow stay which would be about 50" from p1 which makes me conclude that I'm not reading your prints correctly.
Btw,when do you think the MOA admin will update the owners page ?

Well, I was a much younger man when I took those measurements, and they now look criptic to me too, but I ***think*** the answer is as follows...

Working from bow to stern, the first stanchion aft of the pulpit is placed in the same position on both port and starboard. Both P1 (first stanchion on the port side) and S1 (first stanchion on the starboard side) are located 64 3/4" aft of the pulpit bases.

The lifelines then pass around the outside of the main mast standing rigging, so there's a long run without a stanchion on both sides. P2 is placed at 106" and S2 at 120" aft of P1 and S1 respectively. The difference here is due to the gate on the starboard side, which is not repeated on the port side.


Does that answer?

I'm certain of the stanchion placement. On the 31, the stanchions fasten to the deck and toe rail. Though I'd not measured for the stanchions prior to the deck job, we replaced the old toe rail and so I had the fastener holes in the to rail to guide me.

Exactitude here is not necessary. You could eye ball nice even distances from one stanchion to another and be fine I think.

[> [> [> [> That damned admin -- Randall, - Thursday - 03/25/10 - 12:15am

His name is Bill Kranidis. He owned Carpe Diem (an M31) for many years and did more restoration work than most of us will have the courage to attack in this lifetime. He also did all the early research on Mariner origin and history, etc., as outlined on the MOA site. Oh yes, and he built the MOA site and has maintained it these eons with no help or remuneration from all of us cranky owners.

He does tend to get a little snarky when we call him "the site admin", though. Watch that. He may post photos of your boat upside down as his minor revenge. (Please know I'm kidding...)

Site updates are consistent--usually between 30 and 60 days out.

Patience! :)
