outhauls?

Does anyone know of the best way to rig a sail boom correctly? I was reading Gui's book and realize that like many other boats, mine is totally... messed up. I'm hoping there is a local rigger or real person who really 'knows' how the pulleys. outhaul, etc. should be set up. My hardware seems too small and incomplete. So where do I go?

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

Hello,

It would help if you posted your boat type, or mast / boom type, or posted a picture or two.

If it's a common boat, I bet someone here has one and could help you out.

Yeah, there are a few of us out here who would be happy to help, but we need to see "The Mess" first!!

Stuart

Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?

No Pictures Today

Even if I posted pictures [its 3F today] I doubt it would help. Its a 77 Morgan OI, 30'. I can't imagine showing pulleys and guys, both sides of the boom, then the out haul a/w adding all the existing measurements and believe anyones 'written explanation' will make sense. re "Its not you its me?"

Actually, I am hoping to connect with a live human being [unlike when dealing w Verizon or Garmin, Magellen etc., and hitting 9 different numbers and technical experts who answer phones after my 90 minutes of being on hold and then working to understand some very nice people from India or Pakistan??? ] who really knows.

I have looked at a lot of others and will likely find a similar one that really looks functional and go that way.

So my question should simply have been- does anyone know of someone in the area of Massachusetts preferably the South Shore area who knows how to correctly rig a boom on a 1977 30' Morgan OI? And Yes, if it does not approach bailout proportions, I would gladly pay.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

Where about on the south shore are you?? I might be able to help out. While I'm not familiar with the boom on a Morgan OI specifically, there generally isn't much difference between rigging the boom on any number of boats, given that they're all fairly similar in function.

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.

Harken Catalog

If you have access to a Harken catalog they have some pretty good diagrams. My copy is 2007 and they're on p31.

Your a good man dog with your offer to help! I am familiar with the Morgan 30 and the outhaul is not a critical adjustment. In fact you want more belly in the sail than flat and once most owners get it adjusted they don't touch it again.
