Prindle 16 Mainsheet  Bottom

  • I just picked up a Prindle 16. Don't know much about sailing but from what I remember they all have some type of pulleys on the mainsheet but this had nothing like that in the bucket of stuff it came with. Can anyone provide a picture of a properly rigged Prindle 16 Mainsheet?

  • go find local sailors (online? at the beach? at the local launch?) ask a question or 2 (million)
    go crew at first chance
    go race at first chance

    have fun!

    Thank you.
  • I know this is wrong. Everything I see says the tail end of the main sheet should feed through the swiveling camcleat and guide on the centerline then go through the traveler then through the fitting on the crossbar and then get knotted. All of the instructions showing that show a traveler that has rollers for the line to roll over. Mine does not. Do I just pass it through anyway and not worry about chafing as it passes through?
