Re: Mirror Rigging help
Damn, a Mirror question, my first boat in 1970! The diagram should help you. There are two mast steps. You choose based on whether you are using the jib or not. The only serious problem we had was with the shock cord that keeps the gaff attached to the mast (see 16 on the diagram.
BTW, yours may be newer than you think. My hull number was in the 4000s and it was new in 1970.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
