    Windrush jib block location help

    The cleats on the front beam, were for pulling the mast up straight to increase downwind performance, some 6mm line was tied to the forestays, left loose when sailing upwind and pulled tight when downwind. If you have the original jib, you need the original cleats for the aluminium trac. I may have some in the shed. Ph 02 43591729.
  4. Windrush, Mari, Hobie. Stic to these three for availability of 2nd hand spares and advice.

    Caper Cat Jib And Sail Needed

    I have fair to good Mari and Hobie sails from $100, mains and jibs, fit most 14' cats. 02 43591729.
  6. If you have access to the end of the trac, remove the bolt rope and replace with timber dowel, I have done this on Maricats.

    Advice on Windrush 14 purchase

    Yes, but your rudder appears to have stress cracks and should be reenforced ASAP. To remove the rudder.lower it then lift the tiller to ease the spring tension, choc it in the lifted position and remove bolt. I will be sailing at Touley today, drop down if you feel lie a chat.

    New caper cat 14 owner

    I just bought a Taipan for my 4 yr old grandson, I'll be careful with it until he is old enough to sail it on his own. That said, enjoy your new toy.
