    Windrush 14 Mast fittings

    Thanks for the replies. I'm getting new forestays this weekend. I took my old jib and main sail to the sail maker to see if they could be salvaged. The main is marginal, but the jib cannot. The replacement cost and repairs was quite a bit more than the price of the boat. So I thought I'd have a look at Hong Kong sail makers. Are there sail dimensions available somewhere? I can measure my sails but they are probably stretched a bit. Cheers, Rob

    Windrush 14 Jib dimensions

    Hi Pete, did you have any luck with the jib? I'm looking at getting one made in Hong Kong and wondered how you got on. Cheers, Rob

    Windrush 14 Mast fittings

    Thank you @darcy1945 and @Rotech for the replies. I'll set up the jib,forestays and shrouds as in your picture. Thanks also @darcy1945 for the offer of the parts. Are you in NZ? I just went to try out the jib fittings and tore the top of the fabric. looks really sun damaged. I could use a second-hand jib I reckon. Or can you get these cheapish out of China or Hong Kong? Cheers, Rob

    Windrush 14 Mast fittings

    I have just bought an older Windrush 14 with the fore stays. I'm going over her and replacing the rigging where required. Does anyone have any photos of the shroud fittings? These were fastened by a bolt through the mast to hold both of them. On removing these I found another hole drilled underneath and covered in silicon. I'd like to replace these with the correct fitting or get one made but don't know what it should look like. Also what size and type of rope is the main halyard?
