I recently inherited a 14.2 from my ill step father and we rigged it up in the driveway today, but something just doesn't seem right... Please pardon my ignorance for the proper terminology here... The bracket where the boom attaches to the mast was initially set up VERY low on my new mast (as well as the old bent one that I replaced) - only 3-4 inches from the bottom of the mast. It clearly goes higher up, I think just under the groove where the sail begins heading up the mast, and between the 2 movable "stops" that are there. MY questions are: a) are the stops supposed to be the only thing holding the bracket into that location (assuming the sail and sail rigging itself holds the weight of the boom). b) should those stops be set to give that bracket maximum play (up and down) or shoudld they be set to hold the bracket stiffly into a single spot. c) this bracket was initially set up very low on the mast where there are 2 threaded screw holes that line up with the back of the bracket (inside the mast). That's the only place where this sliding bracket can really be secured in a stationary position. What's the purpose of this? Pictures of a proper rigging here might be all I need to confirm that I have set things up correctly (or woefully wrong). My step dad is very ill and in a wheelchair but tried his best to remember how it goes.... Thanks in advance for any help.
