Re: New guy with dumb questions.
Great used sails out there. Never had new sails myself. That little pully thing isn't holding you. You want to go up on the hallyard that is running though the sheaves. I basically drapes over the top of the mast. I"ve rerigged a lot of catalinas that size in Miami while keeping the mast up and changing one wire at a time. My boat was built in 1965 and I bet if I T-bone a new Catalina or Hunter I would go through it. Maybe I'll try it. ( Kind of kidding) Those smaller masts, I just hoist up my chair and climb up into it. 1,2,3 shimmy's I'm standing on th spreader base's, 4,5,6 and 1/2, I'm in the chair.
