Thanks heinzir and Faster - I think I will certainly be replacing the cunningham end with a hook. Significantly quicker to attach and to shake out.

Does anyone recognize what the Sigma on the sail is? Could it be from the original? As I believe Faster mentioned in a previous thread, the (relatively new looking) headsails appear to have been made by Thunderbird sails (my apologies on the confusion that they were from a Thunderbird) though the main and downwind sails (older) all appear to be from Macken.

** Nevermind! took a look at the one other swiftsure I can find pics of - same sail. So original 1974 main sail...
