one thing to consider is that with the F22 and F32 you wont have to build the beams and beam modules, this would save a lot of time but would mean having to buy them from Farrier marine. Ive decided to keep my boat for now and not sell i am trying to find a better mast to go on my boat. I also just bought a new more reliable trailer.

Thanks for the input Sam. After much more reading and deliberation and advice from many on the web, I think I'd be biting off more that I can chew. Some day I will have one though.

I'm 14 months into an F32 and loving it. What do you want to know?


Paul,
I hope that you are still enjoying your F32 build. I'm certainly having a great time working on the F85.
I recently got a really good buy on Harken winches and starting to thing about main sheet systems. I was just wondering if you have given this much thought for the F32 and if so what are you thinking of using?


Sam,
Did you use the two speed main sheet system specified in the plans on your F82R. I'm told even the 16:1 can be rather difficult when the breese is up.
Regards,
Phill

I know that the voices in my head aint real,
but they have some pretty good ideas.
There is no such thing as a quick fix and I've never had free lunch!

the mainsheet will be a 7;1 straight foward purchase with a cleat on the traveller car, instead of tying off the other end of the sheet - run it inside the boom to a 4;1 purchase that exits the boom at a swivle cleat about mid way along.
this will give a 7;1 coarse trim for the helmsman and a 28;1 fine trim for the mainsheet man out on the float.
This is the system that have used on a seacart and it is great.Just keep the boom swivle cleat far enough foward that you dont hit your head on it exiting the main hatch!
It should also be fairly easy to add or remove purchases if required.
