    QuoteThe hook on the mast and a way to mount it
    The new halyard with ball
    A simpler downhaul.
    Perhaps new bridles and/or new forestay.


    1 I have one but it is farfetched to send it from Sweden, maybe Edchris have one? Hobie will probably work perfect https://www.mariner-sails…/hobie-hook-halyard.html

    2 https://www.ebay.com/itm/132008635767

    3 The downhaul is exactly as it should. It is the junk sitting above the blocks that is wrong, exchange it for a loop of 6mm rope.

    4. I gave you the measures, check if your wires are correct.Edited by revintage on Sep 10, 2022 - 02:41 PM.




    Thank you ! Will check dimensions next weekend at the boat.

  • Hi CC,
    Did you get a spinnaker when buying the boat?

    I got a gennaker with the boat which is quite large, picture below.

    Regarding the bridles the longest bridles I have are 3 foot 11 inches matching yours. The shorter pair is 3 foot 3 inches. The short set is currently mounted as thats what worked with furler sail combo as seen previously.

    I found another furler with a stay extender on it of about 6 inches. Maybe I could get the real forestay to reach the long bridles with the stay extender.

    The jib with the zipper to be raised over a forestay.

    That looks like a furling hooter, not a spinnaker. This rig really is a frankenboat.

  • Nothing wrong with Frankencats, I sail one myself, but you need to be watch out for DIY solutions that harms both strength and speed.

    Beware of the shorter bridle wires as they might load the chainplates to hard icon_eek . The shorter wires can load the chainplates with double the tension compared to the longer icon_eek . Would not be fun if you ripped them out......

    Can calculate the actual numbers if you measure the distance between the holes in the bow chanplates.

  • In my case one time with shortened bridle wires the starboard front top hull plate popped loose and bow came in a couple inches. Close call. Yes beware of shortened bridle wires without any reinforcement or spreader bar.
