  3. Re: Hatch flange bolted only to top deck skin on 1991 Privilege 39

    I have had paint stripped from the side of a hull due to waves in a storm (Wharram) which also
    broke the front cross beam so I wouldn't underestimate the potential forces in waves :)
  4. Re: Hatch flange bolted only to top deck skin on 1991 Privilege 39

    Well done - that is a lot of work but worth doing!
    Bit scary about how those front hatches were fitted on. Imagine that with waves breaking over the bows:eek:

    Re: Catalac 8m Outboard 9.9hp Yamaha High thrust

    The Yamaha 9.9 high thrust is a very good engine and designed for powering yachts, so the perfect choice
    which is why you see so many of them on cats.

    Re: Assessing prices for older catamarans

    A surveyor would likely look at a boat for you without doing a full survey and offer a price guide.
    This of course will cost you. You will not want to keep doing this!
    You need to look at as many...

    Re: Assessing prices for older catamarans

    A fair price is what the vendor will accept and what you are willing to pay.
    We paid full asking price for ours because we new we would not get a better one
    for the price. We were both happy :)

    sure we were going much...

    Don't know these boats but doesn't look that cheap for what is a 30' boat.

    I hadn't seen this before - scary stuff but cat looked liked it was doing ok.
    Some sort of drag device may have helped.

  39. Re: Replacing crossbeam on Privilege Cat 1990's era

    I would be very wary of just welding. Aluminum weld is weaker than the original
    material. I would look at fitting an internal splice and pop rivets.
