    Repairing tramp track

    Can anyone give me further detail regards repairing the tramp - ie how do you release the tension on the tramp? Is there a technique for getting the tramp over in to the rail before re-rivetting? More details the better. Cat

    Get to a club and all will become clearer !! You can bumble through though regret when someone can show and explain what you need to do, as well as tips and tricks. Where are you based? Cat

    ripped my jib

    Hi I tore my main sails in some heavy wind sailing over winter - took it to a local sail maker - good call - really good job and checked all over to ensure nothing else potentially wrong on the sail - something you would miss doing a home repair. Anyway as I recall the repair was about $60 and he found a batten for free - which I'd lost. Definitely recommend getting it done professionally Cat

    Offside Bow low rider

    When on a good run i notice that the bow of the offside hull probably rides around 6-8" from the surface of the water. All the photos i see of cats sailing seem to have their hulls high or even lifting out of the water. I thought this would be indicating loss of power, however, as I see so many riding apparently high I am wondering if I have adjust my set up - generally 2 up, main and jib, combined sailor weight around 170kgs. All advice gratefully accepted ps - I'm always concerned that the bow is going to dive or catch an edge - not much room for adjustment. Thanks JC

    where do you buy your sailing bits?

    Ah, good question - not being in a club i shop around myself, though I would say joining a club is a good start. I have bought from Ebay - waterproof bags, SuperCheap Auto - submersible trailer lights, Went to a local sailmaker, to repair my sails - who was unbelieveably helpful and gave me free batons he found lying around etc etc. Try the trading post I guess the answer is how much do you want to shop around, how handy are you to adapt and repair spares, build your sailbox etc etc. I'm sure this site will give you all the help and advic. Enjoy Cat !

    Repairing tramp track

    Hi Two rivets have popped out at the rear of the cat and the rail has bent up. To repair this do i need to completely remove the rail on that side and re-rivet the rail back in Or just re-rivet the 2 rivets that have broken? Whats the method of getting the tramp back under the rail before riveting the rail back in - does not appear to be enough slack to pull it under into place before riveting Idea of costs if i take it to be done professionally? Advice/suggestions please Thanks Cat
