Dog,
I looked at his manual last night and it showed the wire halyrd terminated around a thimble with an eye splice and than the rope portion was shown tied to the thimble. My guess is the electrical tape was done just to............. not sure why the electrical tape was added??

Sailortjk1-

I should have said a proper wire-to-rope join should be spliced..not a knot and electrical tape.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

fig 17

on the web page for the chrysler 22 fig 17 shows the halyard comming down to the cleat on the mast . To get a better purchase go around the cleat back up to the loop in the rope where it attaches to the cable portion of the halyard & back down to the cleat (poor man block & tackle) This actually works pretty well on these boats. The rope for the halyards needs to be seprate from each other the main should be cleated off on one side mast & the jib cleated off on the other side of the mast. This is the boat I learned to sail on , a lot of fun & fast for such a small boat , you will know when you are in the grove when the keel cable starts to hum.

lokeman, we're going to have to make you drop and do fifty if you keep talking about "rope" on your boat.

Rope is what comes on spools in the store, once it hits the boat it becomes "line" "halyard" "sheet" "rode" or many other things, but it isn't "rope" any longer. Like the DI must have told you in Basic "This is your weapon, this is your gun" and you may remember what happens when you mix the two up?

Sometimes the hardest thing is figuring out just what the PO did and how to unravel it. If he wore a big red fright wig, huge floppy sneakers, and answered to the name "Bozo"....yeah, that guy has owned an awful lot of boats.

Sounds just like the guy I bought it from! Okay... I had a hard day last friday and was not able to get the pictures I wanted... To make a long story short: I dropped the boat in and went sailing for about 30 minutes when the bay got really shallow and kicked the rudder up blowing me into even shallower water... after an hour and a half of trying myself a small aluminum fishing boat tried to pull me out deeper to no avail. I called the Department of Marine resources for help.. I actually got stuck RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING and the person on the phone actually had visual contact with me... anyways... 3 hours later they finally made it the 200 yards out to me and pulled me into deeper water and I used the motor to run back home and get on the road 2 1/2 hours behind schedule. LMAO! I am never going out again and forgetting my depth finder. I was on this tiny island named goat island. The bottom of the bay is like 4' deep of silt and was like glue. I will get pictures on my lunch break. When I was putting up the boat Friday myline backing on the halyard pulled the halyard shackle up to the top of the mast and I can't figure out how to get it back without taking the mast down or buying a trained monkey.

I have been searching and find a couple hints that the rigging is supposed to be color coded but cannot find this information anywhere. My halyard lines and main sheet white with blue spots and the line I use to torque the sail onto the boom is blue with white spots. Is coloring just a self choice or is there a standard for each type of line? I can definately see where telling someone to pull the red line is much easier to explain in a hurry than saying pull that one.... crap! the other one....MY BEER! *sobbing*

There are no standards for coloring lines aboard a boat. Many owners will try to buy whatever different color combos are in stock or available, in order to make it easier to tell a guest "pull the blue line!" instead of using words with no meaning to the guest.

"the other one....MY BEER! " Kinda like saying, don't drink the yellow stuff?

Hellosailor, thanks for the info.... I was implying my beer spilt. I got the pictures on my lunch break and here they are:
this is to show what hard ware is attached to the boat. I need to get a pully for each side as part of the rigging for the jib. I believe in the photos i've been seeing, the pully is attached to the railing on the boat... is that rigt? I have seen a couple pics with a track there that has an eye for the pully and I have a set in the box of stuff the PO gave me.

more to see harware installed. I have to install the pullies that go starboard and port where the boat comes up on the sides to the roof.


here is one of the mast base (mast foot?) you can see the pullies on it and the cleats:

another

here's one I found of the mast top..what is the little pullie on the back for?
