    Maricat Hiking Stick Needed

    Cheers for the info fellas, I'll have a look at these rubber universal joints. might give them a go. and ill pick up some plastic pipe from Bunnings. Thanks
  2. Hi all, I was out in some strong with at Ballina and the hiking stick seemed to swivel wrong and the entire pole snapped off at the mount and in the following moments I lost the stick overboard. Now I require a new hiking stick setup and swivel to attach to the cross beam? (dont know what its called.. [part connecting both rudders]) I tried emailing Mick but never got a reply. Any thoughts on where to get a replacement or DIY solutions? Cheers Paul C

    WANTED: Maricat 4.3 Mainsail

    Jimbo, Cheers for the tips. I had heard a bit about mast raking. At this stage I am happy just sailing it as is for a while until I get a bit more confident. But it is good to know that this race sail will be suitable for my setup. As for the dolphin striker, I had a good chat with Darcy on the phone the other day and he ran me through checking that. It's the first thing I will be doing when I head back home next Tuesday for sure! Dean, If you could sus out a rough freight cost to Alstonville, NSW 2477 it would be appreciated.

    Thanks Dean, Sorry for the amateur questions but this is the first time I've ever sailed so am completely new to the world. For any reason would a race sail not fit my setup? or is it completely interchangeable with a stock setup? Also, what is the freight/mail options for such an item up the coast? Cheers

    Beauty Darcy, Will do And thanks again for the advice given on the phone
  7. Just bought a Maricat off Gumtree and went for my first sail on Saturday and tore my mainsail in the corner where it attaches to the boom. Feedback so far is that it wouldn't be worth repairing due to the condition of the material. I am looking for a second hand sail or good priced new sail. I am located in Northern NSW area. Cheers Paul
