    Used jib wanted

    I have a Mari 4.3 which has the original small jib. Just wondering if anyone has a second hand larger size jib. It doesn't have to be in great condition. Cheers Clint

    Jib setup

    Can someone let me know if a jib should sit higher up the mast or lower down near the decks. The foot of mine sits about 30cm below the foot of the main. Boat is a Maricat 4.3.

    Jib setup

    Does anyone know if a jib should be set higher up the mast or lower towards the decks. Mine sits quite low with about 30cm being lower than the bottom of the main.
  4. Just wondering if it is better to have a jib higher up the mast or closer to the decks. The bottom of mine sits about 30cm below the bottom of the main which to me would hinder the slot effect because the jib doesn't overlap the main.

    Trampoline wanted

    Hi Paul, My email address is hansonfamily4@optusnet.com.au Drop me a line and I'll send you the photos. Clint.
  6. Has anyone used Spectra to replace trap wires? It has a huge breaking strain for its' size, it's cheap and easy to work with so is it worthwhile? If you can use it are there any things to watch out for?
  7. Some of you may have seen this before but it's so good you should see it again. Regards, Clint

    Can we attach photos

    Does anyone know if we can still attach photos to our posts? I have done a couple of years ago but can't seem to do it anymore.

    Trampoline wanted

    Ivanov I got a trampoline through Darcy a couple of weeks ago for $250 it's great. I am trying to attach photos of how I set up the hiking straps and the tension rope but am not having much luck with this user unfriendly system. If you supply an email address I can send them to you that way

    Trampoline wanted

    Hi Darcy, The trampoline on my boat is actually two small trampolines joined in the middle by rope. Are the replacement ones you get one piece? What is the difference between MK1 and MK2 trampolines.

    Prices of jib & tramp

    I'm in Brisbane and will be racing occasionally but the local Humpybong Yacht Club doesn't have many Maricats to compete against. I will be sailing mostly one up but still want a jib to hopefully help make tacking a bit easier. At the moment I have to do three point turns to get around.
  12. Hello all, Just bought a Maricat 4.3 on Saturday and I need to know roughly what I should be paying for a jib and a trampoline. Clint

    That's a great price, I priced one in Brisbane and it was $390. I know who I will be contacting for my new tramp
