I ‘m the original owner of a 1999 Capri 14.2 which I purchased from the Sailboat Shop when they still had a store here in town. I’ve kept the sailboat at the Tempe Town Lake marina all of this time except for when they kicked us out so the city could build the asphalt boat storage lot. I haven’t been sailing very often the last couple of years and have had to re-learn most (if not all) of the terminology. After 9+ years I figured it’s time to replace all of the rigging but have not made much progress in getting everything back together. I’ve read through the owner’s manual and my copies of the “spec sheets” as well as the PDF manual I downloaded from this site, and my copy of “Sailing for Dummies.” I’ve also Googled the Internet and searched through the forum here. I’ve learned a lot but still need some help, suggestions, other references, etc. Specifically: I can’t figure out the best (and least expensive way) to rig the main halyard, the jib halyard, and the shock cord. Should I spend the $30.00 on West Marine’s hog ring pliers and make “eye splices” or is it okay to just use a bowline (or similar) knot? I’ve already purchased the shock cord. Will I have to make an eye splice to use this? The original jib halyard was two lines connected with a “block with becket.” I’ve read where I could have used a single line for the jib halyard but since I just took the “rigging lengths” specs sheet with me when I purchased the new lines at West Marine I’d like to stay with Catalina’s recommended rigging on this but, again, I’m not sure if I need to make an eye splice or not. Then there’s the matter of cutting the nylon lines and sealing the ends. I haven’t found the “flame” technique to be satisfactory. West Marine sells a “liquid rope whipping” for about 9 bucks for four ounces and I probably would only use 1/2 ounce of the stuff. Any other suggestions? There’s probably some other things I’m forgetting or missing but I hope you get the idea. I’d just need to figure out how to get this sailboat back in shape so I can put it in the water before it gets too hot here to sail! Having written curricula and training manuals, taught classes, and have done some computer programming I’d be happy to develop an illustrated step by step guide on rigging a 14.2 and post it here. Heck, I’d even be willing to produce a “training” video. But first I need help in figuring out how to get “Charlene” ready to go sailing again! Thanks in advance for any and all replies, suggestions, tips, etc.
