Re: Rigging spinnaker sheave

So to wrap this thread up I now have a spinnaker crane. My local welder fabricated one using stainless steel plate. I drilled two holes in the U shaped bracket that line up with the existing holes in the mast head. The crane is held on using longer clevis pins. Those holes are for the forestay clevis pin and a hole that wasn't being used. Today I hoisted the asymmetric along with a chute scoop. AWESOME! I'm really happy with the setup and I didn't have to drill holes in the boat. And as a side benefit the crane provided a mounting location for our new masthead tricolor.

Re: Rigging spinnaker sheave

I think you should scale the mast and get some close ups.

The Nor'sea are capable of lowering the mast without outside assistance. When I get my Go Pro back I'll take a couple shots and post.

Re: Rigging spinnaker sheave

I have been envisioning you hoisting yourself up a swaying mast, in cool, possibly rainy weather, taking measurements and trial fitting various pins and parts, probably many times to get it 'just right'. But instead you lowered the mast and pulled up a stool to make yourself comfortable while you installed the aforementioned pieces. Is that about right Skipper Jer?

Pretty much got it right. I did have to lean over the bow rail a bit. Sometimes I would just stop work on it to gaze out over beautiful hills and river views while my wife would pass me a cold beer.
