Aloha Discussion / A34 rigging tension
« Last post by BobH on March 28, 2020, 01:31:12 PM »
We unstep the mast each winter and adjust the rigging tension in the spring by feel... I need to do better.

Does anyone use  a Loos Tension Gauge and know what the settings should be for a 34?

Sailboat data says 1983 but mine is an '82 so I guess they are off a bit, maybe they were still working out the kinks in '82 which could be why mine needs to be fixed.

My 8.5 (1973 hull #7 ) has no wood in the cockpit. I wonder when Aloha started adding the wood as shown in the pics.
The previous owner put a teak step pad on the boat and there is wood trim where the Combi  was but that is it.
Looking good Sawlty !

No problem. Here they are.
And I've also fixed the problem.

Mine were mounted directly to the fiberglass, an changing that, I am going to put plywood in the depressions where the winches were and fiberglass them in and then re-drill the holes and mount them on top of the boards.

I wanted to add some pics to my post but I keep getting an error that tells me we are out of disk space, I will send them to you to upload if you would be so kind.

In Canada I think the $35 K range would be for a boat in exceptional condition, and seems more common for the "Encore" edition, which has a traditional vee-berth layout preferred by many.  All I can tell you is that I bought my A32 (standard layout with the workshop in the forepeak) two summers ago - it was advertised by a broker for $32 K by a broker, though I paid considerably less.

Does the winch bolt into the recess or over the top of it?
There are a couple of 8.5's at our club. I'll see if I can find out about them via email.
