Subject: spreader angles
In reply to: Gitano 's message, "Spreader Angles" on - Monday - 09/ 8/08 - 11:31am

I don't know what the angles are but I could do one of two things (or both). If someone knows how far up the mast the spreaders are (I don't have a long enough tape to measure), we could calculate the angle (after getting a few more measurements). The other option is that I can go up my mast and measure. I'll have to make sure they're bisecting the angle of the shroud first (I need to do that anyway).

My main mast tangs could use replacing too. If possible I'd like to get in on the fabrication deal. Perhaps your fabricator could give us a volume discount? I suppose I should make sure, first of all, that this is a Mariner 31 we're talking about.

At any rate, I'll try to get up my mast again sometime this week to make measurements and take some pictures (to make sure our tangs are the same). Please feel free to email me.

Thanks Jared. It would be much appreciated if you could measure the angles. Yes I'll find out about the spreader tangs. The new spreaders will have tangs at top and bottom of the spreaders, and the "spade" which slices through the middle, and has been found to be a primary source of water intrusion, will be removed. I have already made sketches and can scan and email them to you. That way you can verify the fastener locations to make sure they match up with your mast.

That would be great if you could email me the sketches.
