    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.

    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

    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.

    Maricat 4.3 Mainsheet rigging

    Not quite right , but close. You are missing a double block with becket (replaces the double at the bottom of your system) and a single with cleat, above which the double and becket are attached. All are then attached to the traveller car. The traveller system was originally separate, it anchors under the centre of the rear beam, up through the rollers, then through the cleat. the first photo above (white mainsheet) is how the original system should look. As you can see, it takes up a lot of space and is generally replaced by low profile triple blocks top and bottom.

    Maricat 4.3 Mainsheet rigging

    The middle image is how yours should be (Original), triple block on the boom , single rachet and cleat block attached to traveller, with tandem double and becket attached above the single. The cleat attached to traveller is original and will work.

    The spring tension in the rudder arms holds them down. lift the rudder arms to take the pressure cf the cam roller( sitting on the cam shape top of the rudder) and the rudders drop automatically.
