Re: Refit and Modifications to a Cape Dory 36

Thanks for the update and details. The conversion looks great. I wasn't sure if the tiller steering tied into the existing steering quadrant somehow. Glad to know it bolts directly to the rudder post.

Keep posting your project, it's great to see the upgrades you're making.

Re: Refit and Modifications to a Cape Dory 36

Nice modifications. Can you post some more pics of the wheel to tiller conversion. How does the tiller tie into the rudder post? Very interested in following along as you continue the mods.

Re: Bristol 29.9 CB

Hi James and thank you for the welcome. I measured the stays and came up with 7/32 for the forestay and backstay. The uppers and lowers are 3/16. The forestay clevis pin measured 7/16. The forestay chainplate is welded into a piece that includes the anchor roller. Is it okay to drill the clevis pin ...
