Really cool job on the para vanes and the photos. Is there a drawing set? I think I would like to add those on my GB46 rather than try to stuff naiads into an already stuffed engine room. And I need to find a pacnorwest fabricator but I think I have some folks who can get me set up. Maybe save 30k too.

I wish I could help, but a previous owner installed these and I have no prints, sorry.

I will put some of my high tech reverse engineering skills to work on the great photos then! One question I have about the masts/posts on the flying bridge. Are there any stays between port and stbd ones or to the main mast?

Paravane stays

There are three stays from the paravane, one forward about 8 feet back from the pulpit and a second forward of the stern about a foot; these stabilize it fore and aft; there is also a pinned piston/tube arrangement that mechanically locks the paravane arm up or down in conjunction with a stay running from the top of the mast to the tip of the paravane arm. The main support mast also has a single stay running forward on the fly bridge to a forward point.

The port/starboard masts are linked together by the solar panel framework; I (think) I was able to attach a photo.

True, but it supports 4 large solar panels and is solid enough for me to walk on when doing antenna maintenance.

If you are getting serious about taking this project on I would highly recommend spending a couple of hundred dollars and catching a flight down here and spending a hands-on day measuring, pondering and considering. Just a thought.
