Subject: V15 rigging anchor problem
Info: (377 views) Posted: Sunday 9-4-16 08:23:39 PM
Purchased this week 1995 V15 in NE Saskatchewan.

Tech problem.

Forestay anchor fastener nuts utterly inaccessible. 5 of 6 screws turn loosely and will not tighten. No inspection/service port in bow. We are hesitant to put mast up. Concern is rig failure under load. What sort of SS nuts were used?

Port& starboard rig anchor fastener nuts most difficult to access because access port located too far aft by Vanguard.

Question. How do V15 owners solve problems with the loose nuts on rig anchors and re-caulking to keep water out.?

Is there a totally hidden bulkhead in the bow? Do owners install access ports in bow?

thanks
