    SeanP, Thanks for posting. I am going to need to have my rigging inspected and running rigging replaced. We met at Hayden bay marina a while back. Did you ever find out about the bend back in the mast on the 31? Thanks

    The backbend in the 31 is the same as my 34 which is 1% of mast height. The bend is put in with the mast off, by tightening the diagonal shrouds.

    Dan. Send me a private message with contact details and I can provide more info on the H 31 rig and replacement costs for both standing and running rigging. Jerry

    Hi Wes, I had it looked at and it seems that I need to adjust my upper diagonals to ease the rake. Cheers, Sean

    Did you ever buy this boat? Contact me if you did. I have had a lot of experiences now restoring my free 1983 H31. It has been great fun, and I would like to compare notes.
