    Newbie just bought a Thistle

    Looks like you got one of the D&M boats where they built the thwart too far forward. My boat, 2566, is the same and you can see the jib leads were moved aft off the thwart to get the sheeting angle right, and there is a cutout in order to get the centerboard all the way back. Some people have moved the jib leads up from the thwart instead of back to have more space for the middle crew. I ripped that wood out my first time sailing and have since moved the jib sheet cleats further back near the mainsheet block and installed adjustable floating jib leads on the thwart. This boat was definitely raced and upgraded at some point as it has a newer mast/boom, 45's and the correction with the thwart.
