question Soft Deck (AlbemarleQueen)
Posted: 9:53:50 pm on 3/11/2014 Modified: Never
Hello All,
I have a Mark 3 and have run into a bit of an issue with the deck. It is soft in placed and I know needs to be recored. I have all of the materials and have done a core replacement on two other boats. Here is my problem.. My last two coreing projects were on trailer boats that I could take the mast down without a problem. I don't have alot of space where my boat is stored now and having the yard take my mast down would cost a fair amount of money. The soft area is around my starboard side main stay. Is it advisable to do the deck work with the stays still in place? I know the deck is not necessarly structural in that area but what I don't know is if I can do the work with the rig still up. Thoughts anyone?

Hi Brad:
You could attach your halyards to the toerail, they'd serve as temporary stays while you did your core repair.

Good Luck,

Hey Brad,
If you decide to use your halyards in place of shrouds, I suggest you lead them through blocks at the toe-rail and back to a winch and cleat.  That way, you can control/adjust  the tension.
