Hello gentlemen

I too have recently purchased an Evan's 16. Do either of you have a manual to explain the rigging? So far I have the mast up and in place, but Mark I like your idea of running a line from the mast to the end of the boom to keep th ebook up when the sail is not up.
If either of you could take photos of yoru boats from front to back, especially close ups of the lines, pulleys and cockpit rigging I would appreciate it. I have having a hell of a time simply figuring out what goes where.
Thank you for your help
Neil

Rigging

There are Evans boat pictures posted on the Evans 16 user group website. I also had alot of questions and have now had most of them answered. Raiseing and lowering the mast should not be a problem. I have a pretty good simple system that I use. Mike

Well I got her up and sailing on the weekend. Got the main sail up only, but will work on the jib next. Had to hoist the mast 3 times as I kept forgetting things or to do things that I need to do when it is down, but it gets easier each time.
I appreciated your tip about running a line from the top of the mast to the end of the boom to keep it up when the sails are dropped. A big help to have that much extra deck space. Thank you
Any idea where I can buy the hand rails that mount on the bow of the boat? Have seen them in pictures and look nice. Thanks again gents

Re: Evans 16 owner

Just managed to get on this site. Not sure if anyone still monitoring but I am interested in anyone else owning an Evans 16. Just got mine in Picton On. She's now in Parry Sound. A 'fixer upper'. Biggest concern just now is a 'sticking' swing keel that I'd like to repair. Anyone out there with clues as to possible causes? I will probably not have time to work on her til the fall but would welcome any ideas. Thanks, Glen.

Re: Evans 16 owner

Thanks for getting back to me, amcnewman.

If all else fails, I will attempt to shoehorn the keel out but in no rush. Have seen a post on another site with a similar concern but no responses to them. Given it was 2010, I suspect it's a dead link.

Will also watch the yahoo group site for evans 16 and will hope to learn.

I laughed when I read this. Here is a picture of the end of my boom. You can still make out the original manufacturer's label on the end. Yes, it is mislabeled as BOOM VANG when obviously the double block is for the main sheet. This confusion of terms is not that uncommon on small sailboats even in owner's manuals and labeling coming directly from the manufacturer.

You might try a dry, silicone lubricant. It needs to be a dry spray so that it doesn't leave an oily film on the fabric. Sprays like this one are non-staining.

That's an interesting configuration. You must have an extra cleat on the boom. Mine only has the cleat for the outhaul but I do have extra cleats on the mast so mine is cleated there just like the main halyard.
