billygoat Posted February 7, 2019 Report Share Posted February 7, 2019 I took a friend out for his first ever sail, and he immediately started looking for his own cat. Talked him out of a cheap H14 by finding an even cheaper old Mari. It's not in great shape, but suits our needs as a fix and learn project. First question - the new boat has a different dolphin striker to mine. He has a screw thread on the striker itself to tension the cable (mine has turnbuckle on the cable). Guessing they swapped to the later style for a reason. Replacing the striker cable as a matter of routine, should we go with a turnbuckle cable and ignore/remove the inbuilt striker tensioner, or is a like-for-like simple fixed length cable okay?
