Good morning, I am about to move my newly acquired A24 sail no. 141, down to the yard to start the refit, I'm sure it's already been covered somewhere, but, does anyone have the thread dimensions for the leg attatchment.

Thank you, Ian

Thanks Ron, looks like 5/8th but did not take thread gauges on last visit, I think I counted 11 tpi which I think would indicate wht.,but only guessed the inch so could be wrong. Still, she will be in the yard next week soI can get stuck in, and get all the grime off first.

Thanks again Ian.

Not sure what you want to do but most boats can be supported well with a 6 X 3 inch length of timber about foot longer than the distance from bottom of keel to deck and some creative lashing to the shroud attachments. Drill holes in the timber to attach the lashing.
