Re: New info on a Capri 13

One question on the rigging for my Capri 13 that I haven't been able to figure out/decide. The tack corner of my sail has 2 grommets. One is obviously for the Cunningham sheet. I was thinking that the lower one would attach to the gooseneck car on my boom to pull or hold the boom more up the mast, however, the hole on my gooseneck is on the bottom of the car not the top. It seems awkward to attach on the bottom, but if I don't the boom sits at a pretty low angle making it hard to clear my forward crew's head. From the diagrams I've found it doesn't look like the boom is attached to the tack corner of the sail at all. Gravity and the boom vang hold it down, shouldn't something hold it up? Is the boom gooseneck supposed to attach to anything to hold it higher up and more perpendicular to the mast? Should I reverse my gooseneck in order to attach the tack of the sail to the boom or is the Cyclone not designed this way? Thanks!

Did you see the rigging diagram that is included in the link provided by bgeddes? It appears to provide comprehensive info on the rigging. Check it out at the following link:
