Re: Spindrift 22 - Owners manual

I recently purchased a 1982 spectrum 22 and it appears to be very similar to the spindrift 22. I would really like a copy of the manual if anyone has it. Thanks, Kula. [email protected]

Re: Spindrift 22 - Owners manual

Just bought an '85 Spindrift 22, pretty good shape, sat unused in a slip for a few years. Cleaning up, figuring out the rigging, etc. Could use a manual as well.

Thanks,

- Tim

Re: Spindrift 22 - Owners manual

Hi,
It's 9 years later, and I have the same problem. I have a Spindrift 22 in fairly good condition. I am not the worlds greatest or most knowledgeable sailor, so I have some questions about rigging the boat.

1) There seem to be three halyards going up the mast. One (from the top) is the mainsail. The second from the top is the jib. However there is a third which has a pulley (block) just by the spreader. I have no ide what that is for.

2) I think that the jib halyards run from the jib OUTSIDE the stays, and then down the side of the cabin through the pulley-on-a-slider to the winch. Is that correct, or should they go inside the stays?

3) There are two more unused pulleys at the base of the mast, and one on the left side of the roof. I give up. I have no idea. Any help would be appreciated

Re: Spindrift 22 - Owners manual

Hi RTL,

Yes, it can be quite frustrating finding info on these boats. And there is no such thing as the world's greatest or most knowledgeable sailor: they don't exist - we're all just making it up as we go along ... ;-P

I can only help you with the following:

1) My boat has a CDI jib furler, with a self-contained halyard, so there is no jib halyard on the mast, although there are four sheaves in the masthead. The main halyard does indeed go through the masthead, and is led aft to a clutch on the port cabin top. I intend to change this setup to a swivel cleat arrangement on the mast for easier reefing. I have no idea what that block by your spreader is for. Something to do with a spinnaker? Dunno, as my boat does not have, nor is rigged, for a spin.

2) I think you mean the jib sheets, and yes, they should run outside of the shrouds (sidestays). Our chainplates (shroud attachment points on deck) are mounted next to the cabin, not out on the gunwales, so this routing makes the most sense.

3) My RS22 has evidence that there may have been other blocks mounted to the deck near the mast base, as well as other fittings (clutches?) mounted to the aft cabin roof, but they have been eliminated/glassed over. These may have been for jib/spin halyards led aft to the cockpit, but I have no way of knowing.

Hope this helps, and if you care to join my RS22 FB page, please feel free to do so, and join the whopping one other person who has!

Re: Spindrift 22 - Owners manual

Welllll considering the fact that this thread has been around for almost 18 years, and nobody has yet found or posted a manual, I wouldn't get your hopes up.

You're more than welcome to join the FB group I linked to above. A few others have joined since my above post, and there have been some helpful discussions on there.
