Re: Jib boom vs dangly pole

Looks like the jib sheet is attached to the boom rather than the clew? I was assuming the boom did basically nothing upwind and the twist was controlled conventionally and the boom only controlled the leach off wind hence not as critical.

Re: Rig Tension - Amount of purchase required?

Don't do the Facebook thing but I have had a browse there. Assume you could email pictures from here? Many of the links on here don't work anymore it seems.

Re: Rig Tension - Amount of purchase required?

Found this old thread. 18:1 or 24:1 with 150mm to 200mm travel? Seems about right? Also suggests the HK313 38mm wire blocks. I was thinking the 25mm versions HK300 or Seldon, Allen, Seaside equivalent?

Rig Tension - Amount of purchase required?

Hi All, New to International Canoes and having bought one a couple of months ago and sailed it a few times, its time for some changes over the winter. Currently the rig tension is applied through the forestay and I'm looking to make the shrouds adjustable on the water so I can release them offwind. ...
