  3. See TSC site or F/book for NOR.
  4. $300/$1000, depending on condition of sails and tramp.
  5. Have a few odd, jibs that may suit, and odd windy parts. 02 43591729.
  6. Mast rake for current sail design is determined by side stay length (5m, eye to eye) Windvane is mounted under the jib bridle, if sloop rigged, or cassette tape tied to the forestays if cat rigged (Twin forestays) The saddle on your jib track is to secure the end of the jib sheet, which then goes to a pulley on the clue of your jib, then back to the fairlead and cleat, then across to the other cleat and fairlead, forward to the other pulley and back to the saddle. Give me a call about your jib halyard, it is not the original setup. 0243591729.

  10. Have a few good 2nd hand Tiller bars. 0243591729
  11. Come up to Mannering Pk (Lake Macquarie) and have a sail with us, Saturday Mannering Pk, Sunday Toukley. Darcy 02 43591729.
  12. Sounds about right if you are going to stick with your colour scheme, but, you could buy a good 2nd hand windy with good sails for $2k
  13. The bolt rope is to soft and is flattening to pull out of track. You are going to have to find a much harder rope.
  14. It doesn't have to be marine, I have seen stiff rubber of the correct die used.
  15. Replace bolt rope with stiffer rope.
  16. Windrush Yachts, Perth WA. quick efficient service. My ph 0243591729 for any questions on your tiller spring replacement.
  17. See Windrush site, above, for details. SOLD.
  18. Good sailing condition, stock, early Windrush (Not foam or bulkhead models). Currently cat rig, but jib, trap wires, and most fittings supplied. $600 boat only. Reg trlr $300 if required. Lake Macquarie NSW. Ph02 43591729.
  19. Screws or rivets (I prefer screws). Use only 1 rivet in the rear hole, to fix the tiller in the casting (The front hole is what causes them to break)
  20. Nice looking boat, we have a good strong cat fleet racing at Mannering Pk on saturdays, Mari, Hobie, Taipan and F18s. Come down any saturday, or give me a call on 43591729.
  21. Give me a call on 02 43591729, I have a contact for good and cheap tramps.
  22. Your mast is standing to close to vertical, do not add chainplates to the side stays, the tack of the jib should be attached to the furler, which is attached to the bridle, any adjustment should be at the top of the jib above the swivel.
