I see from another post here that you owned an Irwin 38 aft cockpit. Is that correct? I have one, and have only found one other person who has owned that boat.

Does this look like your Irwin?

Thanks, I have moved from the mooring field over to the docks at Port royal Landing marina. Now I'm getting a multitude of help. Thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction. this has been a great help to me learning the ropes. Thanks to you all,

Faster,

If that is going to be a permanent piece of hardware, you really need to switch it out for a standard block. It looks like you are using a Ronstan 6710 or something in that size range, and they are just not strong enough to handle the loads a turning block will see. It isn't the static loads that will break it, but a shock load from hitting a wave, or when the sail fills suddenly. If I am right about which block that it, it is rated to only about 2000lbs MBS, compare that to a Harken 57mm black magic rated to 3500lbs or a high load block rated to 5000lbs.

Itgoshen,

Please, please, please go hire a local racer/boat bum to go out with you for an afternoon. Even if they aren't instructors, a lot of the problems you are having just require a few minutes of work from someone who is knowlagable to get you guys in much better shape. At least around here I can grab a local boat guy from a couple of beers, and a promise to take his girlfriend out with us.

If you are in Beaufort SC, in fact just take a walk down to Beaufort yacht club and ask around, you can probably get a couple of guys to help you out for nothing except a promise to go sailing. I am pretty sure there is also a college team that sails out of there, and they could be a good resource for someone that can help you out.

You have a beautiful boat, and it is very well equipped, but poor rigging can not only make sailing more dangerous for you, it can also seriously damage the boat.

So that with the jib lead forward on the track we a) don't have too flat an approach angle on the drum.. in fact it's always the same no matter where the jib lead position is... and b) so that the sheet doesn't 'saw' through the coaming/cabinside, esp on the port side where it has to come onto the inboard side of the winch drum.

Re: Not Sure Wich Winch to use

Our C&C 35 MKIII has a movable jib sheet block ( genoa lead car) located on a car on the jib tracks and a Ronstadt deck organizer with sheeve that serves as a turning block located on the outside of the combing below and slightly behind the location of the self tailing winch. The jib sheet goes from the clew....through the genoa lead car on the track....along the combing through the permanently fixed sheeve (deck organizer) behind and below the self tailing winch up to the winch drum. This way the jib sheet stay low along the combing and has a good angle of entry to the ST winch
