Does any one have a mistral 16'

I am just wondering if any one else has the same boat as me. Just want to see what brakes most on these boats and stuff like that compare notes about the boat. i know it's a rare boat but let me know if you have a mistral 16' weather it's the model with the cabin or without the cabin.

If you wouldn't mind, please post a pic or two of your boat. My boat is extremely rare too, a Sundance 23.

Re: Does any one have a mistral 16'

I have a Mistral 16 but the cabin version , similar but you guessed it with a cabin .. I bought it a couple of weeks ago and have not sailed it yet , cant wait !!! That being said my father has had everything from a sandpiper to hughes 48' and when he told me to just on a mistral because of epic reliability extremely forgiving and a boat load of fun , I went for it! I have not been to see my father to have him help me with rigging the sails , I have a main , jib and spinnaker(with a rod) and have no idea even on how to attach the boom , I raised the mast ( couldnt resist ) and attempted it but no luck, not enough experience in rigging .

Re: Does any one have a mistral 16'

@ Simon:
I have the same Mistral16, cabrio version. I bought it without manual, but learned about rigging by looking for instructions for Wayfarer. There is a webpage with 20 or so photographs explaining in detail how to rig it, and in which order. I have URL on the other computer, let me know if you cannot find it, I can post it here (I hope).

@ smallboatlover
From the pics you put on looks as if your boat has spinnaker tunnel, right? Mine has just two round access panels in the bow, for access to the mast pivot pin and perhaps some limited storage.

Re: Does any one have a mistral 16'

On a second thought, why wait for a reply. Here's illustrated rigging guide for Wayfarer, it is identical for Mistral 16 or CL-16.

Yes my boat does have a spinnaker shoot on the starbord bow and on the port side is a rectangle storage area all the way from foward of cockpit to bow lot od extra storage an i think the way i have it rigged workes good

Re: Does any one have a mistral 16'

Not being overly experienced with rigging variations, I am curious where your rigging differs from the one I put link to previously. I do mine pretty much as shown there, I believe manual shows something very similar, takes me about 30min to get her up and ready to launch from the road trailer (includes sails hoisting). Certainly would not mind to do it faster and maybe easier.
