Re: Rigging a Trimaran

looks like you have the shrouds way outboard as well as the baby stays on the cabin top. the genoa car is for the genoa or working jib and the outboard blocks are for reaching. Sailed on one when I was a kid and we had the narrow rig with all shrouds on the side of the cabin. seems Piver could not decide which was best or how many shrouds the boat needed. I have never sailed on a boat since that had as many shrouds as the Piver

You would definitely would want to run the sheet inside the rig and there should be a fitting on deck for a block to lead it to the winch. I would suggest that you check this fitting very carefully for rot underneath and make sure that it has a proper backing block.
What is interesting about a tri is that you can have two fittings, one far outboard and one close to the house (or on it) and move the fairlead block in or out to get the perfect curve on your headsail. Once you get sailing, play around with this idea and have fun. Y'all now have a "stable platform from which to set sails". Enjoy.

I said traveler but meant Genoa lead car.

Yes it is a yawl configuration.

Rigging a Trimaran

I'm helping a friend with a new to him tri.
Before moving the boat I thought I would unroll the jib.

The PO has the jib sheet run outside the stays.
But when I set the sail it don't seem to set properly.

Is it possible that the sheets have to be run inside the stays for upwind and outside for downwind?
There is a traveler on the cabin top that is not rigged but that does not seem like it would help at all.
