Have just purchased a Taipan 4.9 that was set up as a Sloop. After any info on cat rig tuning. ie: Mast rake, spreader adjustment, differences in sails,mast etc.

The front bridle connections are angled for a sloop connection, can these be bent up to suit the twin forestay's used on cat rigs..

Any info would be aprreciated

I dont no of anyone with a twin forestay. My mast rake is around 100mm behind the rear beam. Spreader rake is now at 39mm i weigh 75kg ish. I too went from a sloop rig to cat, found a new cat specific sail made a huge difference. If you look at the Taipan web site you will find some great tips and also AHPC link is on the taipan site too.

Good Luck have fun.
