here are pics of new setup, hopefully they are visible enough.
cleaning after removal.
aft to front
Front to rear including small tracks for 110
very front of track
very rear of track and carr and cam cleat to hold the pulling end of the line
under side of deck, with new 3/4" or 2 cm washers vs the old washers that were maybe 3/8" and sless than a cm in diam.
Currently the front fiddle is held onto the ubolt of the shroud. The rear is bolted to the carr where the push/pull lock pin would be. I need to cut this bolt a bit shorter so it does not interfere with the genoa sheet.
I am hoping that by installing the new tracks farther forward I can use the far most setting for reaching to downwind legs with the 110 on windier days for cruising or crewed racing when it is too strong to use a bigger jib or the spinnaker.
I am sure like a lot of things, the playing with the setup to see how well it will work will be the fun part!
May have time to try it this weekend, but more than likely in a week during a race of all places to test it out!
