Mast Step (Re-Post from Temptress)

These are photos that were posted in the wonderful and sadly missed Ballad Exchange. They show a mast step renewal on Temptress (I think).

Re: Teak cockpit parts from Martinssons Batsnickeri, SE

We bought the locker lids from http://www.lidkopingsbatsnickeri.se/ in the beginning of 2007, and after finding out (as described elsewhere) that the aft lid was not rectangular because the locker is not, it was easy enough to fit the lids, and they looked good. However, the lids are now comming apa...

Hull anodes

Hi to all: Does anyone out there have a hull anode on his/her boat? (It's usually the turtle-shaped zinc anode where you attach the bonding cable.) Most people attach the negative battery terminal to their engine block, but I understand it's better to then take another cable from that point to a hul...

Cleats

Hi to all: I was tired of varnishing or oiling the teak wooden pieces that are part of the forward and aft cleats--I had even tried epoxy-coating them, without lasting results--so I thought that it'd be a lot more convenient to replace them with stainless steel pipes. Luckily, 40mm and 30mm stainles...

Re: Window seals

msn-patentnick1 wrote on Oct 18, '07 There may be another, less drastic solution to your problem which I implemented when I had a slightly leaking window. This process doesn't involve removing the windows. First, I excised all the rubber gaskets with a utility knife and a curved blade, both on the ...

Window seals

I wrote the message last night but forgot to attach the photo so I will start again. My ballad has a leaking window and the seal needs replacing. I have tried to obtain a matching one in the UK but so far without success. Attached is a photograph of the seal section end on. It is 15mm from the base ...

Midships fairleads

Hi to all: If you've ever needed to use a midships spring but had no place to either tie a rope or pass a line through, then a pair of midships cleats or fairleads in the area just forward of the spinnaker track are the answer. I chose fairleads since you can pass a rope through and control it from ...

Keel construction

Hi all! I have had my Ballad for almost 2 years now, and I just love the boat more and more. When we were to buy it, we compared Ballad, Comfort 30 and Scampi, and looked at several boats of all 3 types. The Ballad was absolutely the best. However, one thing that is commonly regarded as a "weak...

Unfortunately one of Gancia Girl's Stanchions has been damaged by a fishing boat which lost control whilst entering Pwllheli harbour. The skipper of the fishing boat failed to notice that the flooding tide was pushing ...
