Running rigging replacement

I've been busy much of this winter replacing the running rigging on our C22. I've been documenting it on my blog as I've gone along. Today, I published the first of a series of posts on the different parts of the project.

The first post is for a boom vang.



Added a post this morning for a five-part mainsail outhaul.



This week's installment is for a boom topping lift.



If you're anxious for posts about halyards and sheets, hang in there. I've had some delays finishing those so I'm dancing around the subject a bit. This week's article is about Making a foresail pennant.



I'm getting a little closer to the big reveal post. This week's post is about choosing line colors using a Running rigging color scheme.



This week's post is in preparation for a single-line jiffy reefing setup, DIY mast gates.



If you're going to replacing your wire/rope halyards for all rope and would like to upsize them to 5/16" or 8 mm, you'll want to check out this week's post about Oversize masthead sheaves. They're an easy replacement IF your masthead isn't a victim of galvanic corrosion, which I explain in another post added today.



This is the next to last installment in this series. This week, I discuss rigging an easy to trim boom downhaul to replace the standard equipment boom tie-down.



Wrapping up this series is a blog post on leading lines aft to the cockpit around a pop top with triple deck organizers to dual cam cleats.



I have about a dozen projects that I'm finishing up in preparation for our Spring launch, so I'm going to try to publish a new post on the blog every week that features another part of the refitting. I'll update this thread with the posts pertaining to the running rigging and maybe start new ones for the other types of projects.

If you're interested, check it out and subscribe using the Follow button. It's been fun and the results are great so far. Maybe you'll see something that you can use as you get your own boat ready for Summer fun.

Ever windward,
$tingy Sailor

Re: Running rigging replacement

I'm taking a one week break from the rigging series to show an Under galley storage solution over on the Low buck projects thread.



But don't worry, the rigging series will resume next week!

Re: Running rigging replacement

A part of replacing my running rigging is setting up a jiffy reefing line to the cockpit. This week's post is in preparation for that, DIY mast gates.

Re: Running rigging replacement

This week, I'm interrupting this series again to show my DIY cabin cushion covers project. If you're thinking about redoing your covers yourself, you've gotta read this first

This series isn't finished yet, so stay tuned in here for the next installment.

Yet to come are posts about single-line jiffy reefing, boom downhaul, and the culmination of the series; the lines led aft to the cockpit without going over the pop top. You won't want to miss one.

Re: Running rigging replacement

I see in your profile that you're an architect. That was my dream as a young man. I didn't make it all the way, but it's still a part of me. Congrats on living the dream!

Re: Running rigging replacement

FWIW, you might not leave the end of the vang hanging in loops... doesn't it look like a noose? The risk is that during a gybe, should it pass by the head of someone sitting on the cabin top, it just could act like one.

Certified...in several regards...
