Telemike Posted December 13, 2020 Report Share Posted December 13, 2020 HI I bought a secondhand Maricat 4.3 that was very dismantled - every shackle, every everything was removed and in a box except rudders and tramp. I have a few questions now I have it mostly back together. 1) where the side stays attach to the hull, are there meant to be those adjustable plates or do you just shackle the stay straight to the hull fitting? I currently have them just attached with shackles and the bottom of the jib doesn’t meet the bridle (thingy) that has the self fuller on it. So I used the vang (I think). 2) What do I use to attach the bottom of the jib to the bridle - to fill that 30cm gap? And should I put it above the jib or below it? 3) Do I need a swivel at the top of the self fulling jib? 4) what are the two cleats at the bottom of the mast and on the front beam for? DOes anyone want to sell a decent Mk2 tramp, sail bag, sail box, or trapeze harness (cheaper) in Canberra or DeeWhy area. Thanks in advance. I have a few more questions but will get these answered first. Mike Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
