Smile Mistral 16'

Hi,
I just bought a 1982 Mistral 16' sailboat but don't have the owner's manual and don't know how to rig it - does anyone have any tips, thoughts or an owner's manual???
Thanks!
Cheryl

Re: Mistral 16'

Thats awesome, congrats on the new boat. Im going to look at a Mistral 16 on Tuesday.

here is a link on rigging a Wayfarer which is very similar (almost the same boat)

Caution Water - Sailing - Wayfarer Rigging Guide

What kind of condition is your boat, and if you dont mind what did you pay, only so I have an idea of what they are going for.

Re: Mistral 16'

Thanks for the link! The one I bought is in pretty good condition - it must have hit a dock or another boat on the starboard side - and they did a really bad job patching the fiberglass - it's not that big of a "hole/dent" - I am going to attempt to fix it properly - that is basically the only flaw, however, it was raining so hard today I could not really go outside and make sure all the hardware is there and in good shape - I bought the boat at a non-profit boat auction so the boats are sold "as is" and the owners aren't usually there - the boats are donated - so there really isn't anyone to ask about the boats - so I paid $325 and it included the trailer - but who knows what I will be looking at once the rain here stops and I try to rig it - I think $700 - $1200 is an average price if you are buying from the actual owner. Mine did include the jib and main sails and they look pretty good - I think the battens are missing though, unless I find them in the boat. Good luck with your boat - and if you come across an owners manual I would love it if you could scan it and email to me!

Re: Mistral 16'

That's an amazing price, hopfully everything is there for you so you don't have to round up parts and pieces. If I come across an owners Manuel Ill be sure to pass it along, although I've never found them to be that useful they are a good place to start.

Good luck with your boat.

Re: Mistral 16'

Have you gotten a better look at your new boat yet? I found from someone else that this is a good place for parts C&L Boatworks

The cl 16 is another similar boat with a good following. Check out the forum on the CL16 page, some great info there.

Re: Mistral 16'

I just started a facebook group page called "Mistral 16 sailors" I thought that since there are only a few of us that own this rare boat it would make it easier for us to get info from one another. Hope to see you there.

Re: Mistral 16'

I have a scanned copy of manual that someone sent me last year. I'll try to put it here this evening.

Cheers everyone
Bo

Re: Mistral 16'

I also have specs as pdf but system wont let me upload them.
AS for rigging, someone mentioned website with Wayfarer rigging which is pretty much identical. If you need more, there are some photos that previous owner of my boat sent me about how he used to rig it - still, nothing different from Wayfarer.

Cheers,
Bo

Re: Mistral 16'

I've got a 1982 Mistral 16 open cockpit style. I've converted it from end sheeting to centre sheeting. Makes life easier when single handing. Luv my boat. Weak spot on these boats is the cockpit sole around the bailer. I had to replace my bailer and re-inforce the sole becasue of cracking. A few layers of fibre glass and west system epoxy and it was good as new. I had a sail loft install to sets of reefing points in my main. Now I use jiffy reefing - faster and safer than trying to roll it up
