leg for table 5Sun 29 Aug 2010 23:03:25
jerryb jerryb Thu 24 Jun 2010 01:40:56 Hi Again, does anyone have a photo or drawing of the leg for the table, from the under side, measurements or details of fittings would also be a great help, we need to replace the leg, we have the top and the leg has broken off and didnt come with the boat.
Thanks, jerry and Jane (Kittywake)

Mark Mark Mon 23 Aug 2010 11:53:45 Here's a photo of my table leg. It is 69 cm long and 2.5 cm diameter or if you're not metric then it's 2 foot 3 long and an inch thick. Mine is aluminium, not wooden, so it might not be original.

I can't see any real reason for the angled edge at the top. It seems to be there to make it a bit easier to get in the hole in the block on the underside of the table.

The wooden block is approx 5cm cube which has been lathed to a slight taper where the post fits in. The centre of the hole in the wooden block is 47 cm from the centre line of the mast support fittings.

There is a piece of wood padding glued inside the hole which is impossible to measure but I estimate it to be about 1 cm thick.

If your boat is afloat then I suppose that if you fit your table onto the mast, use a spirit level to get the table level, you should be able to measure from the underside of the table to the bilge to accurately determine how long the post should be for your boat.
