upslims Older post but I currently have a project skip jack and am looking for info/photos on rigging and what not. Any help would be much appreciated!

Tantalus For what it's worth, I too have a Skipjack. I picked it up early this summer to teach the grand kids to sail but didn't get finished patching and painting until after they went back home. It's ready for next summer though. Cardinal Yachts, by the way, is but half an hour from me.
Also see Sherwood's "Field Guide to Sailboats," page 46.

ClarkMorris BINGO! Thank you so much Hudsonian ---- a home run...

I called Mr. Sindle at Cardinal Yachts and he was indeed the manufacturer for the Newport Skipjack Sailboat.

He is retired now.... but he said he would look around and see if he has a Rigging Diagram or pictures.... and he may even have some parts available for the boat....

This is a great list.... I wish I knew about it sooner...

Thanks again folks and I will report back to let you know how it's going...

Hudsonian The skipjack was manufactured by Cardinal Yachts. Harry R. Sindle:
Address: 7519 Ware Neck Rd., Gloucester, VA 23061
Phone: 804-693-5928

There was a fleet at the Ware River Yacht Club, Gloucester, VA. Somebody there must remember how to rig them.

Skipjack 14 foot Sailboat - Need Advice on How to Rig

I have been given a 14 ft Skipjack Sailboat that I am hoping to get back on the water so my son and I can learn to sail together. The sailboat had been on the track to being restored when the previous owner passed away. When I got the boat it had been repainted, but the hardware was all in a box. The mainsail, jib, mast and boom are in fine condition, and I have figured out how to remount all the hardware..... what I do not know is how to replace and rig all the lines.

I have scoured the internet and have only come up with a couple of pictures of one other Skipjack sailboat... and I was unable to get any close up pictures to see how the lines are run....

Does anybody out there know anybody with close up pictures of a Skipjacks rigging .... or how I can get a rigging diagram for it...

The boats were made by the Newport Boat Company... But I cannot even locate that company anymore...

My email address is if anybody can help.
