    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.

    Maricat 4.3 Jib wanted

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

    Maricat 4.3 Jib wanted

    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.

    Sail change

    Still available, or, complete rig (Mast, boom and mainsail) $150

    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.

    Windrush fleets in the Geelong area

    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.
  25. Give me a call 02 43591729, before taking them off, I can save you some frustration.
