Are there any CS17 mentors that could help me with the set of the sails and lines of the boat. Saint James City Florida

Boat is  on the trailer in open area for someone to show me the proper way to setup these sails. Ive looked at videos and some pictures but a real person

would be nice to talk with and show me in person. :)

Pine Island Saint James City Fla.      3096 Skipper Lane, Saint James City Fla 33956

 

Maybe someone will be in the area and can swing by to show me. I know there is not to much to it and will have to watch some

videos again.

Hey Musicman, sorry for the cool reception on your request. I'd be happy to walk you through the setup if you want. We could do a facetime call if you wanted to have a second set of eyes on it. It looks like you've got the stail track. Setup goes something like this....

 

Install both masts making sure you've got the halyards run up and down. 

Hank on the mizzen sail and attach the mizzen halyard. 

hank on main sail and halyard. 

Launch the boat. 

hoist the mizzen sail and cleat the halyard

attach the mizzen sprit to the mizzen clew and snotter blocks on the front of the mizzen mast. 

hook up the mizzen downhaul (usually hook with 2:1 purchase)

Pull some tension on the mizzen downhaul and mizzen snotter. 

Connect the mizzen sheet and keep it loose if you're still at the dock. 

hoist the main sail and cleat the halyard. 

connect main downhaul and sprit boom. 

connect main sheet. 


Thats pretty much it.

Musicman, I’m a long way away it terms of meeting up with you. My suggestion is to rig the boat on the trailer, hoisting the sails, getting the sheets, downhauls, and cboard lines in order. Rig the lines for the snotters (you might want to do that loosely before you raise the sails, and even go through the reefing process. There are a lot of lines to become familiar with and I’ve done it in the driveway a few times. Things can get tangled in unforeseen ways.

 

Good luck, and take Alan up on his FaceTime offer—you can do a walk around with everything up.

That is what I plan to do on a calm day just pull it out from the carport to the side of the street in my

area where most people are gone up north so no traffic this time of the year. Only 3 of us on the whole street :)

I will go through the process.
