    Mast float for a Windrush 14?

    Tie a couple of 1litre milk bottles to the top of your sail. Mast floats just make it that much harder to right, after capsize.

    WTB Maricat 4.3 Mast hound tang

    Your mast fitting is serviceable (Looking at the photos) I would use what you have, and check it regularly.

    Rudders short timber

    Unless you are racing, stick with what you have. A new rudder setup complete, is worth over $1000.

    Maricat 4.3 Diagram and parts

    Still need the single bungee under the tramp to the trap handles/dogbones.

    Maricat 4.3 Diagram and parts

    The jib sheets go through the rings, the other end is tied to the dogbone of the trap wire, when you are trapezing the jib sheet will be within reach.

    Studless Trailer Wheels?

    You undo the axle nut, to remove wheels and replace bearings. These wheels are common on small cat trailers. Give me a call if you want to buy a good 2nd hand a spare. 02 43591729
