U20 Boat Maintenance & Care / waterline striping size
« Last post by drfilberth on November 16, 2018, 08:04:33 AM »
Just bought my first U20, and I am ordering waterline striping.  Can anyone please tell me the common widths if you are using two stripes - like the one on this site in the photos, "Wasaaabi 92" ?
Top three
Competitors at the annual Carolina Keelboat One-Design were treated to a great weekend of sailing.  The conditions were very shifty and challenging with shifts of 40 degrees.  The race committee was able to get in five races on Saturday in 7-12 knots.   On Sunday the committee added another two in 4-8 knots of breeze.  In the first race Treez Decker was racing only herself as she was able to get hooked up on the first shift and cruised to a win by almost an entire leg.  She was able to sail consistently for the rest of the regatta and finished on the podium in 3rd place with 30 points.  Tim Porter, sailing with two of his kids, started slow with two fifth place finishes.  He found his form and was able to sail towards the front for the rest of the regatta finishing in a comfortable 2nd place with 18 points.  BJ and Emily Jones, with Pete Lalli, won the regatta with 11 points.  They sailed consistently fast and were never lower than second.  It was great to have Keith Ziegler join the locals for the event.  We hope that we can have some other out of town folks join us for our next regatta, the Keelboat Midwinters in early March.

Hi Michael, are you still making these? If not would you be willing to share specs? A quote if you’re still making them would be great. Thanks!

U20s have always been supplied with 5/32" wire for all shrouds, uppers, lowers and forestay.  Some people did upgrade to 3/16" uppers during the mast failure "scare" days.  3/16" is fine for the uppers and I assume either size would be fine for the lowers but would require two different Loos gauges and wrenches for tuning if you mix them.

I put new uppers, lowers and fore stay on the boat. Lowers  and forestay are 5/32wire, uppers are 3/16.
Do the numbers for the uppers stay the same for the larger wire.

Awesome venue and regatta. Thanks for a great weekend!
