Morgan 28 (M28) sloop rigging pics

Does anyone have pics they could post of the mast and boom rigging (running and standing) on a 1969 Morgan 28 or similar? I need to replace the vang, cunningham and downhaul that the previous owner removed and didn't keep the parts. I don't have documentation on rigging the boat. I can probably figure it out, but any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Morgan 28 (M28) sloop rigging pics

I have a 1969 Morgan 30. The mast is currently down and it's in my backyard. I can take some pics of the top of the mast if you like, but obviously I can't take any of the rigging set up. Let me know if this would help.

Thanks,

M281 Rigging

As originally rigged (roller reefing, round boom), the M281 had no vang. My boat came with a cast aluminum horseshoe with two urethane? bumpers that could be slipped along the boom and a line tied to it to serve as a temporary vang or preventer. I've never used it.

I do rig a preventer by tying a line around the boom at about the midpoint (I slip the line between the boom and the boltrope of the sail) and leading it to a stanchion base. However, as I've rigged it, it's not a vary efficient vang.

On my M281, the downhaul is a short line (about 3' long) fastened to an eye on the bottom of the gooseneck car and made off directly to a cleat on the back of the mast. There is no separate hardware. Even with this setup, I find it fairly easy to overtension the luff of the sail.

My boat has never been rigged with a cunningham. Since the gooseneck slides up and down, the downhaul serves the purpose. If you are racing, it might be another story.

I can imagine numerous upgrades to this setup that might have been made over the years, but they would be individual to each boat.

I've gone over my archives, but I've never taken a clear photograph of the gooseneck area.

I wish I could be more help, but I think you're going to have to use your imagination and examine other boats in your marina to fix this one.

Thanks everybody for your help with this. If the boat does not really require a vang, I'll rig a preventer and figure out what to do with some of this other extra boom hardware.

I have a Morgan 28 and as Rich said there isn't a boom-vang on it. My rigging appears to be the default rigging that came originally with the boat (there isn't any added hardware that I can find) though it is rigged for spinnaker (I don't know if that is original or not). I can take a couple of pics of the rigging if you still need them. While the video wasn't shot specifically of the mast rigging, our sailing video might show some specifics you can use if needed.
