    Rig Tension with 5/32" Rigging

    Thanks for all of the great input. It sure helps me to wrap my head around this. I presume the object is to keep the mast in optimal position given light, moderate, and heavy winds. I anticipate that the difference in loading characteristics (i.e., stretch) of the 5/32" rigging vs. the...

    Rig Tension with 5/32" Rigging

    That's sound logic. I'm also not too comfortable loading the boat up. I probably should have stated that the main interest in tuning the rig is to maximize performance for local club racing. Nothing too intense. Just want to learn to sail the boat to its capabilities. Any thoughts on the...

    I've used (and misplaced) A Loos 91 Model A. Planning on replacing with a Loos PT-1.

    Rig Tension with 5/32" Rigging

    I've got a 1979 swing keel that is rigged with 5/32" standing rigging. I've been reading the C22NSA Tech Manual, the North Sails Tuning Guide, and the Loose Tension Gauge instructions to understand rigging strategies. I note that these references are based on 1/8" inch rigging. Question 1...

    @ Lakeshark: Regarding the rudder spacer, did you need to add anything behind the lower gudgeon? I'm curious how much the 1" spacer changes the angle of the pintels relative to the stern.

    @LakeShark from your video it looks like you left the outboard rails in place. Did you add the in-board rails to be the same type as stock? What kind of jib sheet blocks do you use. I generally look for frugal solutions as I'm pretty committed to not over improving the boat.

    Inner Jib Tracks and Life Lines

    Thanks LakeShark. Great videos. Especially the one with your son. Awesome. That's exactly what I was wondering. I saw your post in the other forum regarding ratings and scoring procedures. I also want to sail my boat in the occasional Thursday Night Regatta at our club. I do not want...

    Inner Jib Tracks and Life Lines

    Let me start this post with sincere gratitude that so many contributors take the time and effort to post their experience in maintaining and enjoying their boats. I've been a passive benefactor of your posts for several years now. My question today is: Can I install and use the inner jib...
