Re: Diagram for upgrades - will they work?

Is there something specific you would recommend? Maybe just a 4:1 block setup or something like that?

Re: Diagram for upgrades - will they work?

Thanks for the feedback. I'll see if I can re-position the organizers somehow, that's a good point. I do have reefing lines currently, but they're pretty bare-bones. How would you run the vang back?

Diagram for upgrades - will they work?

Hey all, I've been working on some ideas for upgrades for next year for my Precision 165. We get a lot of light air where I'm at, so the main idea is to add hardware to support a genoa. Also, I'm...

Re: Small boat single handed hoisting

Nice, thanks for the tip. My only concern there is a big puff (common on the lake I'm on) but it's certainly worth a try. Either way, speed seems to be the key!

Re: Small boat single handed hoisting

Ah ha! That organizer plate is slick, I like that idea. Slugs, too, I hadn't thought of that. This is all great info, I appreciate the help. Building a winter project list for sure! This summer I may...

Re: Small boat single handed hoisting

I see, that makes sense. So your rig there looks like it's running two halyards supported by a single winch. That's a great idea, thanks for the reply.

Re: Small boat single handed hoisting

Apologies for the ... posts, I couldn't post links or images until I had 10 posts. I'm new!

So if I were to add some hardware, would something like this be what I would consider? It would be...

Re: Small boat single handed hoisting

Thanks for the reply, I do have a bolt rope that can make things more difficult, so I'll definitely look in to the pre-feeder option. I'm not sure how I'd go about hoisting from the cabin without...

Re: Lightning Buying Tips/Suggestions

Yes, I'm in contact with our local fleet captain and have a couple to look at in the area. If you have links to the ones you mentioned that'd be awesome. Thanks for the heads up!

Re: Lightning Buying Tips/Suggestions

Re: Lightning Buying Tips/Suggestions

Hey there, can you email me the hull number, sail info (age, brand, etc) and any photos you have? How's the hull condition? If it's in good shape it might be worth a road trip.

My email is...

Re: Lightning Buying Tips/Suggestions
