NACRA 5.0 rigging advice

Recommended Posts

We are having a ball with the 5.0 and go out most week ends.Stepping the mast no longer presents a problem but rigging the shrouds & main chainplates to the hull eye with a clevis pin and stainless ring is a challenge.

We seem to drop pins & rings in the water(never to be seen again!) and the finger nails do not seem made for opening the stainless rings!!

Is there a simpler faster system-we are recreational sailors only. I used the toggle pin & wire on our old Hobie but this would not fit under the nylon chainplate sleeve cover which might even disengage a toggle-this would be a disaster.

Any advice appreciated

thanks

John
