Bavaria Yacht Help! / Re: How to replace reef lines?
« Last post by Krumelur on Today at 09:33 »
Reading all this, I'm tempted to replace only the ones going from the cockpit through the boom and to the sail.
My concern is not that the lines are broken. It's that the ones going from the cockpit are causing so much friction that it's painful to get the main up.

Am I understanding correctly, that replacing those lines from the cockpit is just about connecting them to the existing ones and pulling them through?
I would then go ahead and replace them with blue/red Liros Dyneema ones and save the changing of the more difficult ones for later.

Those of you who replaced the lines: what about the lengths?Do you remember?

To attach the Reefing Lines to the slider I made an eye splice in the dyneema core, with cover removed. It’s very easy, just a Brummell Hitch & bury the tail.

Can confirm 2 lines. Have don the Job ten years ago. Used liros racer 10mm
Easy job. Just do it
But

The most imported think. Removing the sliders there are 4 rolls in. This four rolls try to spring north south west and east just in the moment you pull the slider out of the boom.
So you have the choice. Buy a spare roll before doing the job and you will not loose one, ore do Se job without spare and one minimal one of it will go diving

Hello,
I changed mines last year (the short lines) . It is easy to do, once we understood the system.
There are 3 sliders in the boom: one on the port side of the boom for the second reef; two on starboard side, the most on the back for the main sail back point and in front of it the slider for the first reef. Line lengths need to be correct to avoid conflict between these two sliders.
Access is done by the back of the boom after removing the 3 screws. Sew the new lines to the old ones before pulling back the sliders.
For the length, it is about the length between the boom and the reef point once the sail is fully up, plus extra for the knots, when the sail is up the reef sliders are close to the mast.
The slider with the cable is for the back of the main sail.
The reef line is blocked with a knot in the slider (difficult to make, space is short).

I didn't check this, but it seems possible.

Can't help with duct routing on that model, but one thing I'd mention is to locate the heater where it can be relatively easily accessed.  My dealer-fitted Webasto is neatly tucked away in the space under the cockpit, mounted on the transom.  It's very neat, but getting at it involves inserting my upper body through a tiny hatch in the bottom of the cockpit locker!

Other tips are to use some vents with louvres, so you can shut off heat going into unused areas.  And to insulate all the ducting.

I replaced my reefing lines with 10mm Liros Dyneema. You need to remove the boom end casting- simply undo the screws. This gives access to the ‘cars’ which run inside the boom. It’s all relatively easy.
I spliced eyes in the end that goes around the boom and used soft shackles to attach around the boom so no more tying bowlines.
I also use soft shackles instead of st st shackles to attach the RL at the luff.

IHi, I ha e a 2003 B36 2 cabin with a 4 outlet heater, 1st outlet is in the heads opposite toilet bowl, second outlet is in the aft cabin below berth facing  the door with a T off to 3rd outlet  running round fron of engine to  below the bottom step the 4th outlet runs all the way down the port side and is terminated with an outlet below the sea on the port side in the forward cabin. The heater is mounted behind the aft cabin bulkhead in the void space in the transom with the outlet on the port side above the engine exhaust  outlet, the ducting passes  by the water tank  with plenty of free space, hope this helps, David Dawn Magic B36/2

I didn’t realize there are two separate lines for each reef.
With the mast taken down, I think I would want to replace all of the lines. Maybe this is a job for the rigger.
