    There is a track on port and starboard that is 122 inches long. It has one block on it. I believe that this is if you are flying a Spinnaker or Genoa?

    The other item is just a couple of inches long. I do not know what it is or where it goes.

    Some things are labeled, like chocks and cleats.

    Yep, I use that track for my genoa (I use it for my jib too - though another cabin top track might be more efficient). Slide the block attached so that the luff of the sail is roughly in line with your jib sheet under sail. I can't ID the other piece of hardware. Your main winch goes where the leaf is - with backing plate! Some of those blocks may be for your traveler?

    Check Mephisto Cat thread for some jib track discussion http://www.pearsonariel.org/discussi...5-Mephisto-Cat. See Post #96

    Jerry has a lot of detail pix in C147 thread http://www.pearsonariel.org/discussi...-Commander-147

    I didn't know squat when I started - not a helluva lot more now, but C65 was in really nice shape to begin with - I've done a lot of work on her since, all trial and error... A good many detail pix in Lucky Dawg thread http://www.pearsonariel.org/discussi...ucky-Dawg-quot Check pic in post 182 for how that jib track looks under sail http://www.pearsonariel.org/discussi...3641#post23641

    A ton more examples of digging in here - Ebb, Mike's 227, Tim, Chance + many more. Use google and type "siteearsonariel.org "whatever you're looking for"" if the search function here doesn't show what you want. (Above should show site colon Pearson... auto correct putting in an emoji that won't go away!)

    See the discussion of using Google to search the board that's in the Off Topic forum. It will decipher the emoje in the above post . . .

    Arrow two pronger

    Since nobody's ventured a spot on that nicely made object on post #46

    and I don't know, having never seen one, but It's obviously a tool

    -- it's hard to guess because we don't know how zoomed the image is

    -- but it might be a key to open and close the threaded cover

    of a deckplate, or deck fill, that has matching holes...

    I'd vote for the deck lid key option . . .

    That is most definitely a key for removing a deck fill cap.

    I also found another key. Different, so I am hoping that one of the containers is new: Water or waste.

    Thanks

    Putting Commander #38 in the water tomorrow. Nervous as all heck. What it it sinks! Then I have to motor to my mooring which is at another harbor . . . . couple of miles. Probably will wait till Wednesday, as wind is going to be 27 knots gusting to 35.

    Going to look silly as my mast will not be up. Will step it on the mooring on a calm day. On the hard, have raised it up and down three times, so getting the hang of it. Will post pictures.

    the picture of the three fitting: the two on the right have broken. What should I replace them with.http://www.pearsonahttp://www.pearso...attach/jpg.gif

    The ring goes in the middle fitting behind the jam cleat.

    Raising the Mast on the water.

    Raising the mast on the water. Had to wait till the ferry went by. Big waves.


    The pulleys are 10". Not for the movement but so that the stays do not get a kink in them.


    All material was stuff that I had on hand except for the pulleys. The winch is from the trailer for the tender. Did not have to use stainless as this is stored in the garage.


    Had to buy a couple more ratchet straps. Bought some galvanized shackles. Had the 4 x 4s left from a garden project.


    All hardware for Port and Starboard are attached to a piece of Aluminum angle iron. This is bolted to the three chain plates. The feet of the 2 x 4's are attached to the angle iron with a short piece of chain.


    A frame comes apart for transporting it. My tender is a 15' Chrysler Mutineer. Fits lots of stuff.


    As the mast comes up, the A frame goes down toward the bow.


    Used Halyards for safety and for main pull line.


    Need some fine turning.

    Dear MDB Mike Sea Glass "or" Anyone:
    your numbers/letters on the side are VA 4948A F I am in NY and have my boat registered at DMV. Can I just paint the numbers on by the sticker? NY xxxxxxxxxxxx?
    Are the numbers and/or letters just the number on the boat registration?

    Also, is there a font size and font type that I should use? Color?

    Thanks

    Stick on numbers are easiest way to go. For New York, something such as: NY XXXX AB. Check the other boats in your marina.
