Main Message Board / Re: Sheet (line) recommendations for MKI

I'd been to the manuals but not found that page.  Looking again, though, it was obvious, so I'm glad you made me look!

Love the boat name.

If that manual isn't too big to email, I'd love a copy at rmbrown @ code-refinery dot com.

And if you are really feeling mercy today, you can tell me how to set up a nice signature block like you have at the bottom of your message with boat info, etc.  I looked around but couldn't figure that one out either.

Ben:

That running rigging dimension sheet is just what the doctor ordered?  Can you tell me where you found it (so maybe I can find one in my own documentation)?  My boat is a 93 model build in December of 92, so a 1.5, and I'd love to verify that it also applies to me.

I'm clearly going blind!  Can anyone point to a page so I can be embarrassed but have the info?  The previous owner replaced mine with 1/2".  Fits well in the hand but not so much the sheaves or clutches.

Re finishing of the floorboards, has anyone finished the backs of the plywood?  is there any reason why this wouldn't be a good thing?  I have plenty of leftover west epoxy from another project.  I'm considering epoxying the backs and putting polyurethane on the tops.

Well, I appreciate the reminder of the term, and I learned a lot, but I'm still befuddled.  I do have the limber hold from the v-berth locker into the bilge and I do have them underneath all flooring panels, but I'm not sure where they'd be between the shaft log/engine area and the bilge.  Under the flooring?  I crawled around and took pictures as far as I could reach but I'm coming up short.

First, I just purchased my C34 a little less than a month ago, so I'm a newbie to this forum.  I've already found it to be incredibly useful and appreciate the info that's already captured here.  I'm going to ask a question that may well already be addressed but that I didn't find with a search.  I won't be offended by a link or search term that might get me there rather than having the conversation over again here!

As part of a comprehensive bilge cleaning effort, I started all the way aft and found that I had water sitting where the shaft leaves the hull.  I'm currently on the hard so I got in there and scrubbed where I could reach and hosed it out, expecting the water to drain to the bilge.  I was surprised when it instead filled the sump under the engine and threatened to overflow onto the floor boards.  I got the water out with a shop vac but I'm wondering if that's by design or whether I have some weep holes that are clogged.  Words of wisdom?
