Re: rk20 - first sailboat

I have a '79 RK20 that I sail in Deltaville, VA. I don't have any good pictures of the rigging right now, but I will sendsome to you some as soon as I can get the mast stepped again. During the hurricane last fall, the high water and wind caused my boat to pull the dock off of the side of our boathouse. I had to rescue the boat and dock during the storm. Since I no longer had a dock to moor the boat, I had to drop the mast and put the boat in the neighbor's slip in the boathouse. I'm going to rebuild the dock this month.

I haven't made many mods, but I had to replace all of the tops of the berths. The plywood had de-laminated. I replaced the berths and painted the interior.

Re: rk20 - first sailboat

I am also looking at a rk20. It's a little rough, but I think workable condition. If you got yours working can you send me some pics/rigging diagrams/etc? I think the boat is complete, but it's been a while since it's seen water. (If you don't count all the water in the cabin)
Thanks

Re: rk20 - first sailboat

Hello. I just bought an rk20 for my first sailboat as well. Can anyone point me in the right direction to learn how to rig it. I figured out stepping the mast, but have no idea where to go next.
