So the saga continues. You may have read my posts about rehabbing a 1990 Capri I bought in July 2015. I've been focusing most of my effort on figuring out how to step the mast single handed. I'm slowly getting her ready to splash. I've found out I was missing a block on the Traveler and Boom Vang and Cunningham. Pieces and parts I didn't know I was missing. The latest in the saga has been the replacement of the old furling jib. The old jib was thread bare from so many years in the sun. Does anybody have an idea for a sock to put on the jib. More importantly, I've been trying to figure out how to attach the old furling hardware to the new jib. I understand how the swivel attaches at the top of the jib. My questions have been focusing on how the drum attaches at the foot. Greg (on this site) has been helping me... with pictures of his furling jib... and suggestions about how to rig it. My old jib doesn't quite reach from the Mast to the bracket on the bow, so I was thinking I'm missing something - maybe a shackle? I'm also confused by the rope that feeds the drum to allow the furling. I was thinking there must be some tension or spring in the drum that allows the drum to furl and unfurl. But I understand it's all mechanical and there is no tension on the drum. I found a tech doc on the Harken website with some information about rigging - but no pictures :>( just a sketchy diagram. I'm putting this out here, so if there is anyone near Charlotte NC, that can help piece this puzzle together, and get this neophyte out on the lake, it would be much appreciated. I had actually found a guy in Charleston SC that offered to help me rig her and see what else I might be missing, but we haven't been able to meet up.
