Prindle 18-2 line set  Bottom

  • Does anyone know the specs for a Prindle 18-2 line set?
    I'm looking at a neglected boat with (supposedly) sound hulls, spars, and sails. I still need to inspect it, but I want to start pricing out what I need...
    Slo Sails and Canvass has a line kit for the 18, but said the 18-2 is different.
    At a minimum, I'd need a main sheet, (standard) jib sheet, halyards, righting line, rudder controls, and trapeze lines

  • Line set? The 18 won't be that much different from the 18-2 so set the boat up with the 18's lines and go from there. Push the boom out all the way against the shrouds and see if you need more or less mainsheet length. Does the 18-2 have a 6 to 1 mainsheet or an 8 to 1? If it doesn't have an 8 to 1, you'd better think about getting one. Diameter is a personal preference; I have always gone smaller because it is smoother and has less tendency to jam.

  • I went with a nacra 5.7 that's complete, so I don't need this anymore :)
