mainsheet system for daysailer
I am trying to breath new life into an older Bristol Corinthian 19 - obvious from the model, performance is not the highest priority. The original mainsheet system was based on a line controlled car on a stainless rail. it is bent an beat up beyond recovery.
I have not really sailed in 20 years and this is my first sailboat - suggestions, direction and advice welcome around:
What are the advantages of each of these options?
Original Corinthian Mainsheet Traveler
Here is a photo of what I believe is the original traveler on a 1966 Corinthian (#151). Just bought the boat. Also, the original Corinthian was apparently sold without a boom vang, so having the traveler probably helps a bit to get better downforce on the boom when its out.
end main - I sail an 18 footer - two deadeyes, three blocks - you are in business
I may have a buyer for the boat and am pretty sure a smaller racing dinghy will work better for me.
but it does look like I've got all the parts for the original (with a badly bent rod/hanger) but I may go even simpler as dylanwinter1 suggested for now.
