C & C 25 mk11, mast rigging

Hi, I am a new owner of a 1983 25' Mk11, have been scraping the bottom and re painting. While the mast has been down, I noticed the bottom of the mast has 3 sheeves, while the mast head has only 2 sheeves??? What is the third at the mast base for??. Also, what is the best way to rig for a spinnaker, do I rig a double sheeve pulley at the mast head for a halyard and a topping lift, and how do I attach at the mast head..........any info greatly appreciated....Buck

Fireman,

If you have not, you should take this question to the C&C email group, I would think you can find another 25 II owner who can help you out.

I'd expect the third sheave in the base is for the spinnaker halyard you don't have. You'll rig that halyard to a single block that has to hang from a crane/extrusion on the mast head that positions the block free to swing and above the forestay. There may be an opening in the mast about 2 feet below the head for the spinnaker halyard to run internally. The topping lift needs to run to a block about 2/3s up the front of the mast. Again, see if you can get measurements from the C&C board.

spinnaker sheeve

An Asymetrical spinnaker might be the way to go. Easy to set up!
