More questions.

Is this a suitable way to fix your rigging?


It appears that i'm missing my goosneck. I've found what I may need on Dwyer's site. Do I want a sliding gooseneck or fixed?


What is this? I'm assuming that's where I slide the sail "doohickeys" in?


Thanks guys, help me learn some more please!

Answers?

More questions.

Is this a suitable way to fix your rigging? NO!!!!! But it's a wonderful way to get experience with dealing with failed rigging during a storm.


It appears that i'm missing my goosneck. I've found what I may need on Dwyer's site. Do I want a sliding gooseneck or fixed? I'd go with fixed but it's entirely up to you and your other equipment.

It sure looks like where the sail slugs fit in.

Thanks guys, help me learn some more please!
