Re: Why buy new rigging?

Looks like a lot of surface corrosion on everything- I would replace. Also, pull the chain plates and do a inspection using magnifying glass.

Re: Why buy new rigging?

Do you know who manufactured your rigging hardware and wire including the pins? There are a lot of low quality stainless fittings and wire out there. I am in the process of replacing my rigging and...

Re: Do You Pole out your Jib?

Yes GeorgeB I think you are correct. The "dog end" has a connection similar to what a spin pole would have- the "C" with a sliding pin. And the mast does have two pad eyes where this pole could be...

Re: Do You Pole out your Jib?

Ok, plan is to keep it all, track stays on the mast and will try to refurbish the poles. Do some poling out of the jib and see how she sails.

Talking poles, what would this be used for?-see pic. ...

Re: Do You Pole out your Jib?

Re: Do You Pole out your Jib?

I have tried sailing DDW with main and jib wing and wing. The wind and waves were such that I could sail that way without flocking the sails. Even so the kids and wife start feeling sea sick due to...

Re: Do You Pole out your Jib?
