Fleet 1 Boat Weighing Event (Recap 3/2/13)

Postby jaltice » Sun Feb 10, 2013 11:54 am

I've posted pics and a few vids of the event at:

Miraculously (at least to me) all of the boats weighed nearly the same, with majority needing to add weight.

For a MKI the lifting beam needs to be pretty much right up against the cabin, maybe 1-2" in front of it or at the back of the companionway opening. It was this way on both MKI's i've lifted, Mizu, and Limpet.

For the MKII/III it will likely be all the way in front, or very near to it. I've only lifted Jessie, but I can't recall if it was slightly bow or stern heavy. Charmed Juan's notes about being lifted are on the website.

As far as what is attached I made sure to be clear on this a week or so ago as the manual states

The minimum racing weight, of the San Juan 21 hull and mast, is to be no less than 1400
lbs, with all attached gear included, and all removable gear removed. Attached gear is
anything that is glued, screwed, bolted, split pinned or glassed in or onto the hull or mast


So in essence, just the Hull, Mast, Shrouds/Stays... Everything else comes off.

I prefer to take the mast off my boat when lifting, but obviously it has to stay on for this weigh in. You should be able to push it to one side, off the mast crutch of course, just enough to have the lifting rope go past it. I've done that a few times as well when i didn't feel like taking it off.

Geeez, would be good to know the actual weight of my boat. I took her down last year to our transfer station and weighed her. She was around 160lbs obese. Then looking on the site, I saw the rudder and all removable accoutrements did not have to be on her. I thought anything that was used during the race had to be on (except the motor ). ...and my rudder,well a lot of you know that ugly thing (24lbs). Just wait. My new rudder I am building with solid fir to class specs so far without finish or tiller, but has hardware in place, is around 12 lbs. No more makin' fun of my rudder Sparky!
Have fun

Nice pics Jim.
I lost count at 8 or 9 boats, does anyone know what the final count was on boats that made it to the event?

I think the list reached 12, but I'm not sure if that was before or after Scott showed up. At least 12.

BTW Chris is planning to take the scale in and make sure it's accurate... The numbers seem a little funny compared to what i'm seeing from other boats, so don't start adding your weight yet:)

Hi,

Any one have an update on the disposition of the scale? Last note above 3/5/13 mentions it was going to get calibrated?

Status?

Thanks!
