Re: Running rigging replacement

You know color coding may look gawd awful to another sailor, but I can take newbs racing with me, and say "pull the green line," or whatever, and they get the point. You're right too, that the solid colors help in that regard. Beyond that, whatever color works.

The rest looks spot on.

Re: Running rigging replacement

Hi, funseekers

You'll have to wait another week for the next installment in this rigging series. But don't worry, I finished the rigging upgrades this week and all that remains is to wrap up and publish the blog posts for them. Keep watching this thread and you'll be among the first to see 'em.

This week, I posted an article about upgrading my outboard motor with a circuit to charge my house battery. Check it out if you sometimes run low on juice out on the water.

Hopefully, you're getting in some good sailing already this year. Our first launch of the season is next week and I'm anxious to try out the new rigging to see how it performs.

Re: Running rigging replacement

Happy Memorial Day weekend, everybody.

I just edited the first message in this thread with a picture and link to the latest post on my blog about an easy to trim boom downhaul to replace a standard equipment boom tie-down.

Hope you get some good sailing in over the long weekend!

Re: Running rigging replacement

It's here at last, the final installment in this series on running rigging replacement. Follow the link for descriptions and pictures of the deck hardware selection and installation. I also included a table of all the line sizes and lengths that I used. I saved 45% by buying the big tickets items used or on deep discount. Sailing with the new rigging is like having a new boat. I highly recommend this upgrade.



There will be plenty more posts on my blog in the future for all areas of the boat, so stay tuned or drop by the blog!

Ever windward,
$tingy Sailor

Re: Running rigging replacement

If you're still following this thread, you might be interested in seeing my Tiller Tamer installation. It has three tips for those who have yet to install theirs:
  • Making a wooden adapter to fit it to your tiller
  • Securing one end of the control line with a stanchion cleat
  • Getting Sta Set line to reeve through more easily
If you want to read the details and see more pics, check it out.
