Don Silsbe Posted May 22, 2016 Author Report Share Posted May 22, 2016 Ken Potts-- I appreciate your input on my mizzen rig, but I must tell you that I've completely changed it. There was simply too much fuss & friction for a mizzen. I recalled Graham saying something to the effect that sheeting the mizzen is almost always a secondary action, and much less important than messing with the main. My set-up also seemed to have enough friction in it to prevent easy, fluid adjustment. Seemed like I was always having to push the sail forward, to ease the mizzen. I've gone back to Graham's simple set-up for the mizzen, and like it much better. I thought it would be a hassle reaching aft, to make adjustments. But the clam cleat is right by my leg, most of the time. I'm thinking of starting a new thread on the subject of "Rigging the Cat Ketch", in hopes that we would all share our variations of rigging. What do y'all think of this? I've got several nuances to share. I've already seen several of yours at earlier mess-abouts. It might be good for those still building, to have a collection of ideas to pick from. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
