All is well Filippo...Really don't know how the above got re-posted. But Cazza has certainly provided enough historical reading for all of us
But I must apologize to Cazza.... my old age is warping the memory that Cazza was also aboard on the maiden voyage. Cazza - glad to have you back. Hope all is well with you and yours. Ciao. Felippo
Thank you. A few folks reached out and I replaced last year. The new fan sounds much better.My blower is a TMC 12v, 4.5 amp, 122cfm
If you are interested, I can tell you far more about the condition of #81 located in CT. It just went on the market last week and has a brand new Code 0 used once and a North Sails Jib still in the box.Hi folks, new guy here. Does anyone have knowledge of the condition of Tigris #72, San Diego?
I've mostly buoy raced in Lake Michigan for 10 or so years most of them phrf racing on a Soverel 27 and which i now own. Looking for next step. Thanks
It’s a simple and reliable system, easy to operateQuestion for everyone, I was asked this by a customer and I can't remember. What was the stock reefing set up? Or was there one? If not have any of you come up with a good solution?
Just bought one in Sydney with the reefing system missing. Based on the 3 holes in the front section looks like there could have been a kind of clutch at the base of the boom (see pic - I temporary installed a cleat but this is NOT a good setting) ??? Could anyone post photos of the original setting? Thanks!I believe there’s a diagram on the class website. But as said above there’s a sheave at the back of the boom and another one in the front. A line should be tied to the boom, then up through the reef point, through the rear sheave, then to the front sheave, down to a single block at the mast partner, through the deck organizer to the clutch on the port side. Simple set up and works quite well.
My setting seems different as the double clutch as the main and 3/4 spinnaker halyard. Looks like there are several "original" settings! That being said, I like your setting, simple and efficient!I am assuming that is your outhaul coming out in the picture. My set up has an eyelet on the starboard side of the gooseneck and a cheek block on the port side (both bolted to that piece of stainless seen in your pic), right where you have your cam cleat. My outhaul is run from the sail to a 3:1 purchase inside the boom and the blocks are tied to the eyelet with a piece of dyneema to position the blocks about mid boom. The outhaul exits through a single sheave box just ahead of the vang and then routed aft to a cam cleat on the boom. The reef line on mine has an eye splice on one end that you loop the other end of the line through the eye and tighten it around the boom positioning it directly below the reefing clew. From there it routes down to the double sheave box in the end of the boom, through the cheek block at the goose neck, down to a single block at the mast partner, through the port side deck organizer to the double clutch that is in the foreground in the first pic you posted. I do not have any extra halyards on my setup so my port clutch has the reef and main halyard. Starboard clutch has the tack line, spinnaker and jib halyards. I would have taken pictures instead of writing this novel but I’ve put mine away for the winter. Hope this helps.
