44376RE: [SabreSailboat] Leak in cabin headliner
- Aug 2, 2013
I'm pretty sure my fasteners were round head or pan head slotted machine screws. Not hex head.
What the heck, why not put a wrench on one and start turning? What's the worst that could happen? You already have a leak. If you discover the culprit you can extradite it to Sheremetyevo Airport for a few weeks.

I have the headsail furled so the jib sheet stays on all summer. The cheek block looks like it attached with bolts because the top is a hex. Was yours this way? I suppose it could be threaded and into wood below.Greg T.From: Sabresailboat@yahoogroups.com [Sabresailboat@yahoogroups.com] on behalf of Carter Brey [carter.brey@...]

If you're describing factory-installed cheek blocks, I had a pair on my cabin roof. Schaeffer series 5, I think. They were simply screwed to the roof, not thru-bolted. They were bedded with grey butyl that after 25 years was still supple and sticky.

Has anyone rebedded these and can you tell how they are attached? I am hesitant about the job creep that could be involved in removing a section of headliner, assuming they are through-bolted.Greg T

If it is not too much trouble I would love to see a picture of your tensioner.... It is something that ouralternator could certainly use as we have had belt slippage in the past. Our engine is a Westerbeke 55 Awith a Balmar 100 amp alternator.Thanks very much.David.--
