Contest 34
« on: 08 August, 2015, 10:18:49 »
Guten Tag,
ich habe eine Frage zu zwei Bolzen die bei unserer Contest auf dem Vorschiff platziert sind. Ich dachte es wäre eine Nachrüstung von unserem Voreigner, aber ich habe jetzt im Urlaub gesehen das diese auch auf anderen Contest Booten vorhanden sind. Wozu dienen diese? Der Voreigner hatte jeweils einen Block daran befestigt. Der Segelmacher den wir gefragt haben konnte uns auch keine Antwort geben.

Hi, there are two bolts at the foredeck on our Contest 34. Does anyone know what they are for? We have been asking our sailmaker, but he couldn´t give any advice. I have seen that other Contest do have the same setup of bolts, so I think it is done by the Conyplex Shipyard?

Have a nice day!!
Claus

Look like blocks to sheet a high-aspect or storm jib to me. Not original, I guess they were added later by one of the former owners.

That's exactly what i thought AT First but then i saw a couple of Contest yachts this summer with the same setup.  So i think it must be something done by conyplex? I was very suprised to see this AT other yachts from conyplex.

I have the same eye bolts. I use them to fix the spring ropes from the cockpitcover.
Would that be an answer?

I found them too far backward for a spinnaker downhaul. I fixed the downhaul at the bottom of the baby rig.

Downhaul for spinnaker pole could be, but would it be necessary to have two of those? Thanks a lot for your answers!!!
Have a nice evening! Yesterday "Emma" came out of the water,  sailing is over for this year :'( :-[ :-[

I guess you can use these for several purposes. The spinakker pole, for barberhaules or for a 'German sheet'. And since sailing is over there is plenty of time to try and find the best purpose  ;)
