Hi everyone. I just purchased a used 2004 H20. It looks like the boat was barely used as the sails look brand new and the daggerboards and the area under the tramp is all glossy. It was stored outside so it dulled out but shes is awesome shape!
Took her out for our first sail today and had a blast in 8-10 mph winds. Not much but fun for the first time out. Cant wait to get her on the ocean!
4 questions come to mind. For now
1) I bought the mast stepper 3, tried it for about 10 minutes and then just stepped the mast the old fashion way. Anyone have pictures of how they step their H20 using the MS3?
2) The little plastic bushings between the rudder pins and the rudder casting, one side doesn't have any and someone told me to replace both with SS tubing from the hardware store that fill the gap. Then replace pins. Is this commonplace? Any more details? Should it be lubricated?
3) The tramp is blue and rather faded but in decent condition. One problem is that it's pulling put on the back left corner. Started out 6", progressed to 12". Tried to relace by removing and that corner keeps coming out. Any suggestions?
4) How to keep the downwind jib sheet from getting stuck on the mast? Always happens and then gets caught up when tacking.
