Title: Lines run to the cockpit - 19 Sailor
Post by: Mike on September 18, 2016, 11:17:29 AM
I am considering running main halyard to the cockpit on my 19.  Any suggestions re: hardware, blocks, reefing changes would be appreciated from those who have made this modification.

Mike,

I this is my first season with my 82 cp-19 Mk2.  My rule this year was not to drill any holes in the boat.  (I did drill into the tiller for a tiller clutch).

There were 2 pre-drilled holes in theater tabernacle aft.  I put a harken single block with cam here.  The one I had from previous boat had a becket, and I attached shock chord and tied that to halyard cleat.  This holds it up well, but the shock cord makes it hard to engage the cam, so I will change to 1/8 line soon. 

I may need to step into the companion way to engage the cleat, but I a not climbing out of cockpit.

When not in use, the Halyard is either run on cabin top to cockpit, or most times, draped into cabin.

My boat had a lot of customizing by previous owner, so I am not sure the mast tabernacle holes are standard.

Regards,
Brain,

Mike:  Use "main halyard" in our search on the forum.  You should get a lot of threads regarding this modification.

So here is a pic of my cp 19 tabernacle,  I have added a mast deck plate but you can see the four holes in the corners of the original tabernacle. (They are original, my 16 had them as well) I used these for turning block attachments before I installed the mast plate.  I used the same springs to hold them up.  I believe they are a harken product, definitely from the hardware aisle at West. The easiest way to install the springs was to attach the blocks and then screw them on like a key ring. It was a little tight but the shackles did not interfere with raising or lowering the mast. Whom ever first thought of putting a plate under a deck stepped mast for easy attachments was a genius.

I have a similar set up as Damsel19 except that my holes for the shackles are part of my deck plate.  I just made these changes this winter after lots of research.  First, I added a hinged mast plate to assist with stepping the mast singlehanded.  The plate I used had the same "wings" on the right and left sides which allow for the attachment of shackles rather than having to attach them to the deck (see Damsel19's photo).  Using a hinged mast plate, I no longer use a tabernacle.  My halyards run through the shackles to a deck organizer and then back to a clutch mounted just back of the companionway bulkhead.  While I was hesitant to drill holes in my CP19, I was very careful to lay everything out properly, installed backing plates throughout and was very generous with using 4200 to attach and seal all of the hardware.  It has been a rainy Spring and everything is holding watertight!  I have really appreciated having all of my lines in the cockpit.  Only time I need to leave the cockpit is to pull up the fenders.

Cal27:  If you could, I would like to see pics of the whole set-up.

Thanks,

Sun Cats come from the factory with the halyards (both "throat" and "peak" for the gaff rig) running to the cockpit. The same or similar hardware might work well on the 19. You may want to call (or email) Gerry or Matt at Com-Pac for recommendations. They've always been helpful when I have contacted them.

I will be out at my boat at the beginning of the week and will get some photos of my line set up.
