Hanking Jib Question

Quick question-kinda a dumb one- 1988 Catalina 22 fixed keel-

When hanking on a jib 110% working, do I attach the tack to the clasp on the bow of the boat the hoist is up with the halyard, or should the bottom most point of contact with the sail be the first hank above the tack?

Seems like the jib has been blowing into the pulpit when attached to that clasp. Then when hoisted there is about a foot and 1/2 between the head of the mast and head of the sail.

Thanks

Robert

Hi Robert,

You're going to have to be a bit more specific. I, for one, have no idea what you are talking about.

Welcome to Sailnet!

The TACK of the sail (lower forward corner) should be attached to a shackle at the base of the forestay as seen in this photo:



While the specifics may be slightly different for each boat, the idea is the same. The tack attachment point will generally be AFT of the forestay.

If you want to raise the entire jib so that it clears the pulpit better, you should add a pennant, usually made of a short length of stainless steel wire rope with an eye at each end and it used to connect the tack of the sail to the base of the forestay.

The hanks should NEVER be attached to anything but the forestay wire itself.

I'd point out that on most boats, the jib has trouble clearing the bow pulpit to some degree... same with genoas.... That's pretty normal.

Here's a photo of a Chrysler 22...

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.

Not sure if I properly appreciate the work of art but there should be a cringle, a round metal ring at the "tack" corner of the jib. That needs to be attached to the bow fitting.
Some have hooks, some shackles etc. Then start with the jib hanks.

Good luck
Gary

Like Gary said; cringle attaches to bow/deck fitting, then bottom hank first... all same direction... work your way to the top, piling the Genoa on the foredeck.

Be aware that some smaller sails may have a triangular metal "ring" or a metal ring attached via webbing instead of a cringle/grommet going through the sail. You can see the Tack cringle in the photo I posted earlier.

So then, should the jib sheets be running free through the clew? The woman who had the jib before had them knotted together just outside the clew. The manual said they should be running free before i run them around the stays...

The jib sheets should be free of obstructions, but there oughtta be some kind of knotting/binding to keep the rope from sliding freely through the clew. Otherwise, you'll never be able to trim the sail. Here's one of probably many threads on Sailnet about knotting a jib sheet:
