Re: PSC 37 staysail sheet rigging options?

Grant, it is the same on my 34, if I run the sheets out side the shroud then I can't go to windward without rubbing, if I run them inside and then ease the sheets they rub inside. I put plastic snap on covers over the shroud and just let them rub and there is no chaffing showing after 20 hours of use. There must be a rigging solution and I expect someone will inform us.

Could this "staysail" actually be a yankee? I don't think my staysil extends that far back.

Re: PSC 37 staysail sheet rigging options?

The sail came out of a bag marked "Staysail" and is a hank on. Since I have a roller on the front, there would be no way to put it up there without taking down the foil. I do have another sail that is marked "small staysail" but I have yet to try it out. Should a staysail not come back past the mast?

Re: PSC 37 staysail sheet rigging options?

Hi,

I added a staysail setup a couple of years ago. Not saying it is the best way, but it is working for us.
I added two tracks on the cabin top , fore and aft not angled, mostly because it was easier to install.
I didn't want to add another line to the 8 that are already running to the stbd halyard winch, so I led the stbd staysail across the cabin top to the port side with two cheek blocks.
I installed a nice shiny new self tailing winch to port to handle them both. Works really well when tacking as you throw the old sheet off and grab the other without moving.
Our staysail is on a roller - when we upgraded our main furler we moved the old one back.
I got the sail built after figuring out the track length and position so that it would work with all the hardware. It was still almost too long in the luff because I changed my mast rake, so I would recommend taking actual measurements (twice) to give the sailmaker and ask them to be a little conservative.
I just went with a cross cut from Lee sails in Hong Kong. Happy with the sail.

Cheers,
John




Cheers,
John and Alison
