• Our site will be moving to a Virtual Private Server overnight this Saturday/Sunday, March 6-7th. This is part of a larger effort underway to engage a new add-on which should (eventually) vastly expand our searching capabilities and allow users to better utilize the 20 years of data we possess. The site will continue operating during this period, and we expect no interruption. I will make further announcements on the add-on once we complete this move and have stabilized.

    35-3 Halyards

    Thanks all for the information/feedback you provided - much appreciated, moving out with the high strength 3/8" halyard (no change required to deck hardware) & halyard knot.

    35-3 Halyards

    Did you have any issue with the splice (at the shackle) going back through the sheave and prevent a full hoist?

    35-3 Halyards

    it's an '84, with the original sheaves - with 3/8" on the main and 7/16" on the jib. Previous owner didn't put a splice/shackle because it would go back through the sheave and prevent the a full hoist on the jib. I'll have to confirm the mast. thanks

Has anyone had issues with going to 7/16” for both the main and headsail? The deck hardware can handle up to 7/16”, but I’m concerned about the mast head...

    Holding Tank for 35-3

    thanks for the sketch, i'll use this when ordering my tank. I noticed that your vent port was .75" Dia, where my current tank is .625" Dia.. I'm trying to determine if the vent on the hull is .75" Dia or .625"? I can always pull it apart to verify.

    Holding Tank for 35-3

    I'm looking to replace the current holding tank (bladder type installed by previous owner) with a hard plastic tank. I checked the blogs and found info dating back to 2005/2007 on a Ronco B192. Does anyone know if that is a good replacement tank for the 35-3 or of any other tank designs that...
