I've only owned the boat a couple weeks so far but if there is one thing i am dying to change already it's the daggerboard rigging. The guy i bought it from had pretty much everything else setup nicely. But my wooden daggerboard has a long bungie that goes through the bow handle and back then clips together with those "Sister Hooks". Except I can't get those friggin things to connect or disconnect in less than a minute. I really struggle to line the small gaps up, especially when the shock cord is under tension. I can probably lower or raise my sail completely and tie it off quicker than i can rig/derig the daggerboard. I see some people have the small shock cord that goes around the mast instead and has a plastic hook that looks much easier for quick install and release. Just wondering peoples preferences on this (not interested in the daggerboard material itself, that's a whole other discussion) : What is the advantage or rigging through the bow handle vs. around the mast? Does one stay out of the way more if you have a vang rigged? Why would someone want to use these Brummel Hooks as a connection method vs. something that might be quicker to connect/release?
