Re: Yet another what is this rigging question.

I'd vote with Capt. Flood on this one. On a Cal 29 you could use the mechanical advantage the block provides to keep the pole under control without necessarily having to have a huge winch back aft to trim it with. Depends a bit on how long the line is, and where it leads.

The track is on the front of the mast and is surely a spinn pole track...

Actually this make sense, esp given the snap shackle (which wouldn't work all that well for a cunningham) and the lead 'across' the mast section doesn't work for that either very well..

I'd be surprised to see a barberhauler on a Cal 29, but there you go....

Pole downhaul is also possible, but it's not the usual way of rigging one. It would have the advantage of not needing adjustment on every guy trim, but lacks the 'foreguy' forward pull that helps keep the pole on the tack, making twingers pretty much required.

GREETINGS EARTHLINGS; It may be the down haul for the spinny pole and a whole load of other usefull things as well ! AS ALWAYS GO SAFE

BillA98272 This might help, I'll be headed over to the boat in a couple of hours. I'll get better pics of mail sail.

GREETINGS EARTHLINGS ; looks to me like the down-haul for the main sail looking by the sliding track on the first pic. Does the main sail have a cunningham cringle (hole) ? as the pully can be used also. can the reefing lines be attached to the same ? or cheat and contact the PO. AS ALWAYS GO SAFE.

Re: Yet another what is this rigging question.

I'm also with those saying your hardware is part of a Cunningham or boom down haul.

Could it also have been used for a Barber hauler??? Hence, both sides of the mast???

Re: Yet another what is this rigging question.

I' m Sorry, I don't know the right vocabulay...Did you have a traveller running across the boat before the mast for the jib? A"self-tacking-jib" would be the direct translation from German. Than the sheet could run there.

Re: Yet another what is this rigging question.

Cunningham was my bet too.. if so the other end likely has a hook on it, to hook it onto the cringle just above the tack. Sometimes rather than a cunningham hook, the line goes up, through the cringle, and attaches back to the boom (or mast).
Ooh a reference back to this site... I love it

Re: Yet another what is this rigging question.

Where is the upper end of that first tackle connected?? Could be a cunningham if it goes into a cringle 6 inches or so above the tack of the main. Not the best led arrangement but it could work.. btw your lines need a good cleaning!!

The triple blocks on deck are simply called turning blocks.

Re: Yet another what is this rigging question.

The other piece of hardware I don't know the name of is just a block with three pulleys that direct and line up the lines leading to the cockpit.
