Hello to all contributors to this forum:
I am headed to Antigua in a few days to install all new standing rigging on my Hulll #335 SM, built 2001. I purchased the entire replacement rigging, right down to the clevis pins, from ACMO (Sylvie was extremely helpful) and it was air freighted from France to Antigua (3 days enroute, a week to clear customs and make its way to my boat).
I have been pursuing this forum for specifications on items I will need and thus far find the following:
Top Swivel Specifications: Torlon 10 mm ball bearings. (actual diameter on the Harken web site of 9.5 mm) - Quantity: 26 balls per row, times two rows (total 52 balls) for the swivel at the head of jib sail foil.
Rivets for jib foil extrusion to furling motor swivel (the grooved cast swivel that engages the furling motor gearbox via a latching pin): As I have searched this site I see that Joel Potter indicates that Amel used Monel (also known as stainless steel) rivets. I could not find that anyone posted the size of these rivets (both diameter and length). Quantity required: 8
NEED TO KNOW: Diameter and Length of these Monel rivets
If there are other specifications related to this job please chime in and I will compile them into a document that can be placed in the files section. This hopefully will save members having to endure the cumbersome search that I just went through.
Best to all,
