Re: Adjust rigging on AMF/Alcort Trac 14

I "inherited" a Trac 14 when we bought a house in upstate NY. They are no longer manufactured in the US, AMF having sold the rights to Windrush Cats in Australia. I found an owner's manual and rigging guide at

Windrush Catamaran Association of WA

Happy sailing!

Adjust rigging on AMF/Alcort Trac 14

I recently bought a AMF Trac 14 catamaran and the previous owner showed me how to rig it, but when we had it up the stays seemed very loose (several inches of play), and there are no adjusters on them.

He said he sailed it like that and had no issues. Does anyone have info on how to adjust the rig, or do I just make sure I don't do an uncontroleld jibe and wreck my rigging?
