Catalina 22' - Rigging

I just recently purchased an 83' Catalina 22', and have some questions about rigging. It has a roller furling jib, which I have little experience with, and cannot figure out where to attach the actual jib. The forestay itself was obviously not meant to hold the jib, as it much too wide for the clips. It has a thin line running the length of the forestay, but it cannot be tightened to the point where it holds the jib against the forestay under sail. Do I attach the jib to this thin line anyway? It is the only solution with which I can conclude at this point.

Also, when installing the jib I have simply slid the gooseneck into the appropriate slot on the mast. Obviously, the boom sags low, unless attached to a small wire coming off the backstay. Is this all that needs to be done? I assume that the mainsail will hold the boom up while under sail, and that I will need to use the wire off the backstay when the mainsail is down. Thank you.

wvnutt... most furling sails are attached to the furling foil by threading their leading fabric edge into the wider opening slot on the lower portion of the furler while someone else hoists the sail.

The small wire on the back stay is designed to hold the main sail boom out of the way. Once you hoist hour mainsail then you need to detach the wire clip as the sail shape itself will hold up the boom.

Here's a manual for your boat and a good class association in case you are interested. Have fun!!

Thanks so much for your response. The jibs supplied with the boat all have hooks to attach to a wire or line. How do I slide the fabric edge into the lower end of the furling foil with the hooks in the way?

photo of head stay would be cool.
The jibs with the hooks are hank on they dont work with roller fuling units desighned for jibs that have a luff wire.
Is it possible that the previous owner put the furler on and didn't get the jibs converted over to the new system?
is there a jib on the furler?
a good sail loft could convert them.
Here is the link for the association the 22s are raced every where a local club could probably be a big help Catalina 22 Home Page
hope this helps

All boats are sinking it's just a matter of how fast.

However, depending on the condition of the headsails that are hank-on... it may or may not be worth converting them. If they are in really good shape, it is probably worth converting them to a wire luff and adding foam to the luff to help the sail maintain its shape when partiallly furled/reefed.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
