Re: c-lark rigging

Okay - so I've got everything figured out but the spinnaker. The boat is already set up for it, but it came to me missing the spinnaker pole, and the previous owner knew nothing about that. Anybody know what length the pole is supposed to be on a C-Lark 14?

Re: c-lark rigging

I'd love to see how a spinnaker is setup on the C-Lark as well.

Also, I wanted to share this with you if it hasn't already found it's way to you. Really helped me out.

Re: c-lark rigging

I would have avoided resurrecting an old thread, but I haven't posted enough to PM via message or e-mail. So,

Hi Steve in Idaho - I live in Idaho too. I have acquired a C-Lark 14 and have everything but the spinnaker pole. Did you have any luck with finding its dimensions? While I could hack something together, this C-Lark sat in its garage from the day it was purchased new until we bought it from the original owner except for the few days it was sailed. If you tell me, or I find out, I will post its dimensions here.

Re: c-lark rigging

Sorry - no. I never found the pole dimensions. My C-lark will be for sale later this summer, as I have moved up to a Ranger 20 and don't have room for the extra boat. Consequently, the spinnaker pole is no longer an issue to me, although it would be nice to include it in the sale.

Enjoy your C-Lark. Mine is fantastic in light winds. Wish I could afford the room to keep it around.

BTW - make sure you secure your centerboard so it won't slide out in a capsize!

Thanks Steve! So far, the consensus is ~ 60" for the pole, 1" diameter. I'm going with the Forespar dinghy spinnaker kit and will cut to size. It comes with Mini 6 end fittings and is reasonably priced.

Thanks for the tip on the centerboard. I have seen references to "the centerboard mod" but hadn't quite figured out what that is yet.

Can't wait to sail it - we get plenty of light wind here. Sell it to someone in Sandpoint so we can start a fleet.

Re: c-lark rigging

Just comparing specs from my R20 and extrapolating down, 60" sounds about right. I might have to give it a try with my adjustable whisker pole before selling the boat.

You ever sail Priest Lake? We're thinking of a trip up there sometime in the near future.

Re: c-lark rigging

I bought the Forespar dinghy spinnaker pole kit, which comes with 6' of 1" OD tubing - this allows one to cut to size. I'm going to a cross check the proposed pole length to the j measurement (forestay to mast) prior to the application of blade to metal. Cut twice measure once?

I've kayaked the upper portion of Priest, but not sailed it. I'm a homebody except for an occasional dinner visit to Elkins. If I were going to sail, I'd put in there as I think the upper portion of Priest is stunningly beautiful. But I don't know the wind patterns there. On Lake Pend Oreille, we tend to get a nice afternoon breeze through the Clark Fork. But, Priest Lake is definitely worth a visit.

Re: c-lark rigging

And, to finish this post, the Forespar pole kit is a perfect replacement, but it comes with a plastic pad-eye. Instead I bought a 420 mast eye, which is metal and a perfect fit for the C-Lark's mast.
