I have sustained damage to one of the fairleads on my Nauticat 39 and wondered if any other members have recently replaced a fairlead and at what cost.
Please reply here or his email address is email@example.com

I also have a fairlead partially damaged on my 38 and was hoping to replace it, but don’t know where to buy it from (the Yard?)…as you can see the inner plastic part is broken.

I have not had this issue with my Nc39 however the rollers have the ability to gather dust and dirt and stop rotating. A blast with a hose has cleared them. I have found the team at the Yard very helpful when I have needed help. They seem to hold extensive spares so should be able to help you or point you to their suppliers.

I am new to your organization. I live in the Boston area and although there are a number of Nauticats in region I haven’t been able to learn a great deal about suppliers etc. I too have need to replace the plastic rollers on the fiarleads of my 1987 Nauticat 35.
Can someone provide me the name of the manufacture or a source?
Thanks- Gary Gallagher

Thanks for the note. I do not know who supplies Nauticat with the fairleads.
The best contact at the Yard for information is Veli Karja. his contact email is ”firstname.lastname@example.org”. He may take a couple of days to come back to you. I have found him very helpful when after technical help in the past. As have a very large number of other owners both in UK and around the world.
You will need to quote in your mail; type of Nauticat, your boats hull number (usually on the stern) and year of build. Plus send them a few photos of the parts / area that you are after. I have found this helps.
The Yard keep a full record of each yacht they have built. So they can dig down into the original build spec of your boat if needed.
Have you had a look around the “Technical Library/Data” which our technical expert Alan Worrell looks after. There is an oldish list of suppliers in there somewhere. If you have specific issues then do send Alan an email. His contact details are in the directory section. Alan also has a Nc35 so he may know the details.
Hope this helps

Just found it.
Have a look in the Forums area, all things technical, suppliers
and it is in there. It is rather old and needs updating.
