    Attaching tiller elbows

    Screws or rivets (I prefer screws). Use only 1 rivet in the rear hole, to fix the tiller in the casting (The front hole is what causes them to break)

    Advice on setup of Maricat 4.3

    Your mast is standing to close to vertical, do not add chainplates to the side stays, the tack of the jib should be attached to the furler, which is attached to the bridle, any adjustment should be at the top of the jib above the swivel.

    Mk2 has the traveller track as part of the rear beam extrusion, Mk1 track is a separate "I" beam attached to the rear beam. A good Mk1 is as good as a good Mk2 in performance.

    Windrush Jib for Maricat?

    Jish, I have a good Mari jib for $150, another fair $100. Windy jibs are smaller, but will do the job almost as well. Darcy 0243591729.
