spreaders bolted on







spreaders made out of 5mm 4mm walled tube with the ends squahed together in a vice and welded together with a slot cut ou tfor the stay to be wired into









spreaders attached to fitting plate, if i was to do it all over i would just use baby stay and not have a spreader arrangement as it was a fair bit of work to make







mast head crane i think is what this called it gives me room for 5 halyards but ill only run four, its not hard to make(cut out the hape of all the pieces) but id advise you get it welded by a boilermaker, most of the bits that i cut out i used a band saw to cut it with which worked very well

Hi Guys,

I was reading an old Cruising Helmsman and came across a David Lambourne add, he was importing them from a factory in Tanjin China, we have lived in China for a year and speak some chinese, if we can help contact us.

We used Allyacht Spars for Crasara Cruzin and have since broken 2 boom straps, the pin through the goose neck wear, had several small peices missing and relised we had paid someone $70 per hour (2005) for splicing rope and they did both ends!!!!

You work it out for yourself

Hi CC, I have a Allyacht setup with 2 boom straps, yet to be fitted, what do you suggest instead? All he lines attatched to my mast and boom have been spliced (very well) at both ends as well. I wonder why they do that.

Launch date is the week of the 24th November.

Jim.

Hi Jim, when the boom straps break they really go off. We are on our last strap (which is showing signs of ware) and have put some 12mm rope around the boom.

To stay with Allyacht design I would try a car seat belt stap going round 2 or 3 times, but rope has saved me the last time.

(You could use the standard Boom main sheet Lug)

Cheers

I received my new mast and boom from David Lambourne yesterday, he also made my Seagull striker. I have to do the final assembly as i didnt want to pay them anymore than I had to. but the components are very well made, beautiful welds that we cant get here in hobart..
