kiwi-red Posted September 10, 2004 Report Share Posted September 10, 2004 Hi Just bought a maricat 4.0 and have been trying to figure out how to rig it. I think that I have a couple of bits missing. I found a good tutorial on the nsw maricat site run by grahame heap. He mentions side stays. Are these wire ropes? I have two wires but they have handles so I am assuming that they are the trapeze. When on the mast do you attach the trapeze (not that I will be using it for a while) and where on the mast do you attach the side stays? About 1.9m down from the top of the mast is a metal plate with a hole in it. I assume that this is where the top of the jib attaches. On the hulls, it looks like the side stay attach to a loop on a metal strip. There are some more loops a bit further out, is this where the jib sheets go? I assume that there is no back stay with this. I take it that the mast just sits on the cross beam, it's not held in by a pin or anything. The mast is quite long, so I will have to keep an eye on the power lines when I put it up. If anyone can help, that would be great. Thanks for putting up with the questions kiwi Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
