That's a valuable piece of information. I'm glad you shared it. It answers a lot of questions on why the boats varied from one another - options from the factory.
I see the anodized mast and boom is an option. So silver aluminum doesn't mean a replacement mast or boom.
My boat didn't come with a spinnaker or it's hardware. It would be nice to know were it was all installed.
Interesting to see that winches were not standard and I don't have the optional jib halyard winch on the mast. How far up from the base of the mast is it mounted and is it the same size as the sheet winches or smaller?
I didn't know a backstay tensioner was optional. Now I know what the U-bolt is for at the top top of the transom. Anyone know what the original set up was like? ratio etc.?
I don't have the Boomvang option either. How fare from the gooseneck was the boom bail installed and what was the block ratio?
I wonder if the gas tank venting option was the two opposed cowl vents?
I wish I had the poptop cover option. David-is your cover an original or a copy of an original?
