  1. Your set up looks fine by the way I have removed the vangs on our boats on the advice of the serious sailors from a nearby club; they only have one bloke who still uses his.
  2. You're right - they are for forestay tensioners. The jib sheet cleats, if fitted, are about halfway between the mast and the outer edge of the trampoline frame.
  3. I can dig ours out at some stage and measure things if that would help. I haven't had any response from Brett at Windrush for some months - I'm not sure if there is something wrong. Our tillers don't have extensions. We put two kids on when there is a job rigged.
  4. I think you'll struggle to get a workable second-hand jib - we got donated one years ago but it was in pretty rough shape. The problem with the longer foot is that the blocks will smack against the mast every time you tack. That will shorten their life considerably.
  5. https://windrushassociation.weebly.com/uploads/9/9/3/1/99310448/windrush_manual.pdf Note is only the Mark I
  6. Mast rake, I took some pictures which I thought would be helpful but they aren't. Looks like about 5 degrees from vertical using the picture I took and adjusted for deck squareness. Stay attachment on the mast is just forward of the point where they attach to the deck.
  7. Outhaul: Two styles of outhaul casting, the first adjustable (red line) in the first two photo and bound up for ease of sailing in the third. The second casting does not have the pulleys so we just keep it bound up permanently (white/black line).
  8. We're putting them in on Tuesday so will take some photos for you.
  9. We have one proper outhaul and one that is just tied on to the casting - the latter actually being a tack casting that has been put on the clew end of the boom! I can take some photos in the next week or two if you like. All the W14 masts I have seen definitely have a jam cleat near the top, has it broken off? Getting a second-hand new style jib will probably be a challenge, we certainly haven't been able to buy second-hand for love or money. Be aware that the newer jibs are designed for a mast that is raked further back, we have converted one of our Mark Is to Mark II-style rigging
  10. Hi Gregted We will be rigging ours in the morning so I can send you some photos if you would like. Is there something specific you are having trouble with? Your first photo is a Windrush 12 but the second one is a 14. I've put a photo of the backstay attachments. The 12s have an unusual mainsheet setup which I have included a photo of too - you can see it in your photo too.
