Exact specification of traveller holes in thwart

Postby nicgel on Mon Mar 14, 2011 8:48 am

I am about to drill the holes for the rope traveller in the thwart of my boat. Is the distance between holes of 510 mm centre to centre?

Thanks

Traveller hole distance

Diagram 20 indicates a distance of 508mm between the inside edge of each hole. The diagram explaining the "theory of of the slack rope hawse" indicates 510mm center to centre.
Your safest distance is the 508mm inside edge to inside edge of each hole.
I am sure the measurer would be quite tolerant of a few mm difference...it is not a speed issue but one of stength of the thwart.
