Stus-List Rod rigging.

My newly acquired 1980 CNC 36 had the heads cut off of the intermediate shrouds. In trying to get them re-headed I discovered I'm missing 1 ball from under the cap. The through bolt needs replacing as well as possibly the caps. Question is, did Navtec go to a different option because of the dissimilar metals issue? Suggestions please?

> Steve,   Make sure that you take a good look at the knees which the shroud and back stay chain plates attach.   These are a known weak spot on boats of our vintage.    About 9 years ago the tabbing on one of mine started separating.  I was fortunate that I found it before a catastrophic failure.

>> Regarding recurring water in the bilge: I am busy going over everything on my newly acquired 1980 CNC 36.  My mast is off pending repairs to the rigging. I have checked and double checked water tanks (2), water lines, and keel bolts.  No water coming from them or any of the 7 through hull fittings.  After using a shop vac to remove any trace of water in the bilge I return the next day and continue to find about 1/2 gallon of water in the bilge.  I am now convinced that it is coming back from the manual bilge hose which outputs through a Y connection on the bilge pump output hose.  I evacuated that tonight.  We’ll see in the morning.  If I find any, it will be either salt or bleach.  That should help narrow it down, as I have bleach in the water tanks.  The holding tank is empty. Good thing for the taste test!

I've been pumping the bilge dry every two-four weeks, and it seems to be about 2-4 gallons of water as measured by a big plastic bucket. I'm not sure where the water is coming from. Apart from the bilge, water is pooling in the forward-most storage compartment under the port settee. My first instinct is to have a friend on deck hold the screws on the toerails and stanchion bases while I slightly tighten the nuts below deck and see if the water ingress stops. Does that make sense? Is there a different, better course of action I should take at this time? Does anyone know offhand what size socket I'll need?
