Re: M-20 Scow - Help identify part

Wow - I thought I was the only M-20 owner out there!

I haven't gotten to rig or sail my M-20 in a couple years, due to having a baby that's taken all my time. But it's a ton of fun to sail, so I'd be happy to help you get it up and sailing - if you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask. I can always give answers from memory or if need be run out to take a look at how mine is rigged.

As you're finding out, the M-20 has a ton of rigging to tune just about any part of the sail. From memory, that piece (I don't know what it's called) connects to the mast, and has lines rigged underneath that are used to move the lower half of the mast foreward or abaft, basically influencing how the sail is shaped.
