Rigging a Jib

Guest dexter

Recommended Posts

I am trying to attach a jib to my Maricat 4.3, but currently I have my boat Cat Rigged. Does anyone know the lengths of the bridle and forestay required to attatch a jib?

check out the maricat web site


on there you will find the specifications and tips to rig etc

From memeory the bridle length is dictated by the class rules of 1010mm for each length of wire bridle which join under the furler(do you have one Ronstan rf76) and attaching to each bow.

there is then usually a wire strop from swivel at head of jib to hounds, it's length is dependent upon the amount of rake you want to carry on your mast and is sometimes connected to an adjuster to vary this due to conditions.....

If you are in Sydney drop in to one of the clubs sailing maricats....
