Stanchions & bases for guard wires

Good evening!

Would anyone have some stanchions or bases that i could buy that might save me from having toget a set fabbed?

My boat doesn't have any & as there's no holes drilled in the appropriate spots, i don't think it ever had them.

It was a little sketchy hanging on with one hand & trying to hoist/ cleat the main halyard, while into wind but abeam to the waves in Plymouth sound, first/last time we launched, so thought i'd look into fitting some guard wires as well as leading lines aft into the cockpit...

I'm in the same boat (no pun intended). Would like to know if someone could give advice on the Stanchion lengths, and if the guardwires go all the way back to stern/pushpit, or stop just at the entry to the cockpit and are finished to the side of the cockpit on a diagonal slope

I just got my Prelude back in the water after working on her this year and had our first sail with the kids 1st December!

On Jeremy Fisher the guard lines finish at a slope to the forward edge of the cockpit. Otherwise I think it would not be so easy to get on and off the boat!
It seems to work for us. there must be some Preludes that you could find to buy that would provide the pulpit and guard wires wire you need. There is one next to us in Norfolk that is probably good for "scrap" . I have spoken to the owner who thinks he would be lucky to get £300 to £400 for it.

Hi Simon,

Would you be able to put me in touch with him please?

I can't take the whole boat but i would be interested to see if he's willing to break it for the parts i need.

Kind regards

Jim

Hi Jim
I haven't forgotten you, it is just at this time of the year, I don't get to Norfolk much and when I do I don't often see people I want to see as they are not around much either!!
