Contest 29
« on: 07 October, 2012, 22:53:14 »
Hi,
I am the owner of a contest 29 mk2 hull number 182 built in 1971. This ship was buyed by my parents in 1973. Since then i sailed the years in the northsea and the baltic sea. Now I am in Co-ownership with my brother. Home of the ship is Bremen/Germany. Over the years we did some restorations: new engine (Yanmar 2GM20); painting of hull and deck; new teak deck; renewing of the Bugbeschlag (engl..?) and others.
Attached 2 Photos.
Greetings   Dirk

Hi Dirk,

Could you please give some more information on how you renewed the mastbase and how you removed the old wood inside?

regards

Pieter

Hi Pieter,
when i had opened the mastbase as shown on the picture, it was easy to remove the remaining wood with a chisel. Most of it was nearly turf.  In some areas it was possible to use an electrical drill with a cutter bit on top. I recommend not to remove too much of the fibreglass to keep the old shape.
The opening in front was necessary to fit in the new plywood-pieces sealed with Epoxy.

Hi Eelke,
we renewded the teakdeck in 2012. 20 years ago we first time placed a teakdeck on the boat. Both decks are plywood-based and glued with epoxy. The old deck had 4 mm teak on the surface and this stratum was weared down over the years. Because the adhesion on the original fibreglass deck was still very good, we didn`t remove the old one and laid the new deck above (now 6mm teak on 3 mm plywood).
Since the first teakdeck we had no longer the "crackle"- noise inside the boat, when a heavy person entered the vordeck. :)
I hope the new deck will stay 20 years again, so the costs will distribute over the years (we made a package with rubberstrakes and handrails).
To shorepower: at the moment I put the cabledrum inside the starboard locker; beneath the chart table I have placed a power strip with fault interrupter and I connect the plug into the cable drum. I think the best solution is a socket in the swallows nest as shown in other posts.
Greetings Dirk
