I've built new I-beam style crossbeams for my Pahi31 which were drawn up
by JWD. My old beams are bolted in the center of the trough and lashed
at the ends. I would prefer to do away with the bolts (leak points)
and just lash similar to other designs but I can't come up with a good
way to lock the sideways movement of the beams.
Any suggestions or ideas for beam attachments/lashings? I see in capgeraldo's comment on the "mast shrouds" discussion that JWD offers two attachment methods for the Pahi42, one with bolt and lashings, like my 31, or lashings only, which I would prefer. Can anyone describe what JWD has drawen for the lashing only method on the 42 and could it apply to the 31?
