A Work of Art, Code Zero

Doug and John G are working on their THIRD Code Zero setup in as many years. This one will go aboard a Ted Hood custom 51 yawl.
Because the boat owner has opted for the Code Zero to dead end at the existing bow rail, John has designed and fabricated a specialized base. It’s a work of art! A stainless shaft with a substantial flange provides a solid mounting surface for the necessary hardware. By fitting the shaft inside the hollow bow rail, and seating the flange against the boat’s stem plate, John has provided a secure loading point for the sail and preserved the boat’s lines.
Today, with John’s metalwork in place, Doug made a template of the boat’s genoa furler and dry-fitted the new Code Zero furler. The mockup allowed John and Doug to confirm adequate separation between the two drums and check the placement of the new hardware.
