I know Tac wanted the other regatta management site, but LNYC uses Regatta Network...

I mistakenly replied to the email instead of your forum entry. Let me price it out. I donít think UPS is too bad because if I remember correctly it is not overlength. It looks like I have three to build so that saves a little money.

I am interested, however the cost plus shipping to Florida may be a deciding factor to purchase.  Are plans and/or specs available to home fabricators?

One other thing to do is when the main is ragging make sure you ease some jib sheet as well or the boat just tips over more and goes sideways. The other thing is make sure the shrouds are wound on really hard and you probably can't pull the vang hard enough.

U20 Boat Maintenance & Care / Rigging
« Last post by Venti on June 29, 2018, 01:55:43 PM »
Looks like I have original aluminum mast with wire/braided line main halyard. I need to replace shrouds, main halyard and jib halyard does anyone have specs.

Should I keep the wire/braid combo?

Thanks,
Bryan

Thanks all for your responses to my question about reefing the main.  They ranged from "never", to some who do and got good results, to those who wished they had.  I'm guessing that there must be some happy medium between being blown over and de-powered, to reefed and sailing more upright and in control.  I was also concerned about buckling the mast or losing the rig.  I've heard of those in the fleet who have lost their masts.  A season ending bummer. 

I found the thread about the 500 lb. crew weight interesting when deciding whether or not to reef in higher wind speeds.

I have never said this before and I will deny saying in the future,  Keith Ziegler is a smart man :)
