Re: Rigging spinnaker sheave
Captain Len proposed making a bracket held on using the sheave clevis pins. I took a look at the mast head today and instead of holding the bracket on using the sheave pins, the forestay and backstay cleavis pins would work better. Also I thought the bracket could be fabricated using either a channel or angle bracket as a start, then overbored threw a left handed monky wrench into the works. A less than $50.00 solution from Catalina Direct, simple elegant and no hole drilling required to mount it. While that particular Spinnaker Crane won't fit (too narrow for starters) it does provide a starting concept for my fabricator. And I will contact Bob at Nor'sea about the factory option.
