I've just (finally) finished re-rigging an older CS 17 (#218) from a sock-style sail to the new new sail track. I have new sails and am very happy with the performance of the boat thus far. Thanks to everybody who gave advice along the way. I have a more basic sail question that I need help with. In the picture below, you will see two grommets on either side of the clew where I have affixed a snap hook. What is the purpose of those grommets?
I am building a new boat (see "new design, 15' cat ketch" thread in the Design Forum) and I am offering the old one and its trailer to a good home. The boat is a heavily modified Siren (from Clarkcraft.com) with a batwing sliding gunter rig and no jib, with large buoyancy compartments. Very nice sail and oar boat (homemade oars included), quite zippy especially on a beam reach. Lots of interesting old-time details (eye-splices, wooden toggles, jiffy reefing line, etc.). The trailer is a 12' EZ-Loader galvanized steel affair: it's in fine shape with full set of working lights, etc. Asking price is $700 for boat AND trailer. Location is NW Ohio.
