Re: Flybridge teak replacement

All completed with a twin forestay arrangement instead of the single forestay in the middle of the flybridge.
It has worked very well.

Re: Flybridge teak replacement

Well, after all the fear and trepidation the flybridge teak deck replacement has gone very well. The deck was in great condition, so preparation was relatively easy, just time consuming. We are about to do the final sand and clean-up and the result looks fantastic. I will install the new mast forest...

Re: Flybridge teak replacement

An update. I have removed the chainplate and I like the flybridge so much without it that I am going to run a two forestay arrangement. I will run the stays from the masthead instead of from under the spreaders. I will install new chainplates each side right out on the edge of the Europa roof. If I ...

Flybridge teak replacement

I have a 1981 GB42 Europa. I have decided to renew the flybridge teak. As you will see from the photos the mast forestay chainplate and the mast base were installed on top of the teak. I assume, from this, that the teak is original and was laid in the factory. I would like to remove the teak from un...

Re: Source for rollers on salon door bottom

I have just done mine. I found that after nearly 40 years the rollers were fine but they had settled into the door and all that was required was the correct nylon spacers and new top guides. While I had them off I have taken the opportunity to sand an varnish everything. I have also replaced the dra...

The door will then come out easily. Some of my guides had virtually worn away so I spent many hours looking for...
