    The strop broke because it was due for replacement, check your stays and dolphin striker for any sign of damage/wear.

    Mari jibs originally were smaller and sheeted to tracks on the front beam. Current jibs are larger, and sheet to tracks or saddle on alloy tramp track, just in front of side stays. Yours appears to be current size. Your sails appear to be in reasonable condition. If original, your boat is an early, Mk1 which (on condition of sails) has seen little use.

    Windrush fleets in the Geelong area

    I'm to far north to help with your local info, just keep posting and learning. Best advice I can give, is to find the local clubs, and go with the fleet that suits your pocket.

    Good cheap racing , tough with few known faults. A bit more expense, for more performance is the Taipan. Both will carry your 95kg comfortably in "Cat" rig, solo sailing, on trapeze for the Taipan.
  13. Give me a call 02 43591729, before taking them off, I can save you some frustration.
  14. We're talking about getting a $400 boat back on the water in an economical way, spending $400 on 1 new rudder doesn't cut it.
  15. There is usually enough room in the casting to just glass over eacc side of the blade, rough up the area to be glassed with 180 grade, and glass at least 50mm below cracks.
