Could use some help with rigging and lines

Jesse,

Would you be willing to send me some detailed pictures of the Harpoon 5.2 lines as rigged? I purchased one last fall and would like to verify the rigging is correct. thanks in advance.

Rich

As a side note, Whaler struggled for the first several years with it''s gel coat on the Whalers...especially with blisters on the bottom. They told us several times that they "were really suprised", but I''ve met several other owners who had the same problem. Just take a peek under the boat for a look. Blisters can usually be ignored on the Harpoon, just make sure they are firm to the touch.

Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2

I owned one in the 1980''s. it was a fine boat, a bit heavy by todays standards, but a good sailer. I used it in the Mid-Coast Maine area, once doing the belfast round Islesboro race. If the price is right the boat is fine. Good Luck.

Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2

Does anyone have experience with a Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2? I have an opportunity to buy one, but certain hardware and rigging needs to be replaced and I''m wondering how to figure out what all of the missing parts are, and how it should look when everything is complete
