Re: Few Albacore questions

I am not familiar with your boat, but, looks like in the video the guy has a fixed gooseneck (riveted to mast), and yours is a slider. It also looks like in your photo there is a rope on the bottom part of the gooseneck used to tension the luff of the sail. The droopy looking boom in your photo with the sails raised may be due to the bolt rope shrinkage. You might be able to make this the proper shape by snugging the boom downhaul, or cunningham. Man, looks like there are a TON of control lines in the photo. Not all boats have every sail control ever invented. You will have fun with what you have, and figure out what else to rig as you go along. Read-sail-read-repeat.
