Fidra 88 your renovation is very impressive. I hope to do similar to mine, some day, and spend some proper time on the hardstand. Did you construct your own cradle?
I am in the process of constructing a new bulkhead under my storfidra mastfoot, a bit like this: (not my thread):
As I also have (very bad) compression in the fibreglass liner support under the inner columns which support the mastfoot (see my thread
Yikes! Any one know what to do here? Fibreglass structural problem under mast
But I will actually construct a much bigger bulkhead than misil-1 has done in the first thread, above, to solve the same problem; one would be required to "climb through" the bulkhead I will construct, to access the forepeak, as a bigger bulkhead would seem stronger and safer to me (imagine a submarine bulkhead).
I wonder how some storfidras seem to have this serious weakness, and some, like yours, do not? I thought it was design related, so would affect all storfidras, but clearly not.
My storfidra is no. 82. I have erice's (on this forum) old boat, sailed to New Zealand a few years back.
