I would buy the K0750 again.

I can't upload a pdf to this forum. I can email it to anyone who sends me an email address.

Requesting a 1973 Ranger 26 Owners Manual (Gary Mull design)

Requesting a 1973 Ranger 26 Owners Manual (Gary Mull design)

I've owned this boat for one month. Hull # 285. Great condition and I've already been out 5 times. If some generous sailor out there who also has a 1973 model -- wouldn't mind taking the 10 minutes to scan and send me his couple pages of the owner's manual--I'd sure appreciate it.

jonwilson@rocketmail.com

Someone sent me one from years past, but I suspect this particular year may have some specifics that I'd like to know.

For instance, I'll need to know weights and dimensions on things . . . any websites anyone recommends where I can get this info or tips on Ranger ownership / design blueprints?

I can return the favor by sharing tips on any projects I complete. This boat will do MUCH sailing in big Hawaiian waters over the next year. Every weekend.

thanks, Jon

I would definitely get the 0750 model for this size boat. No need to get the bigger one. I use the boom as a handrail when messing about at the dock and this model supports that fine.

I can't upload the user's manual but it's here as soon as the moderator clears the upload.

Talking Big Help

Thank you for providing the manual. You are a Big Help. I am in the process of rerigging my Ranger. The book definitely helped.

Okay!

A Ranger 26 project! 3Amigos, are you replacing the standing rigging, running rigging or both? If standing rigging, did you drop the mast as part of a haul-out, or just for this project? Are you using swaged fittings, or swageless? Do you have a jib furler or a hank-on jib? Details, please.

Smile Rigging

I have to replace both the standing and running rigging. The mast was already down when I got her. She is a true project, but doable. Practical Sailor magazine suggest using a mix of swaged and Norseman type fittings so I am debating. Currently I have hanks for the jib, but I would like to convert to a roller furler if the budget allows. Thanks again for the manual.

Swageless Fittings

Instead of Norseman, you might look at Quick Attach fittings. Article from GOB here.

Good Old Boat, Quick Attach, Sta-Lok, Norseman, swasless fittings

They are available from Bo'sun Supplies. I used them on my Alacrity 19, and they worked fine. The only thing to be careful of is that the three jaws are held together with a little rubber band. Don't lose that rubber band.
