    Shroud/spreader attachment?

    The zip tie broke so I figured something stronger was needed. I will try the piano wire today as I have that. Appreciate the feedback.

    dimensions of line that holds the centerboard down?

    I got out on my new to me 14.2 mod 1 yesterday (finally!) and realized that something must hold the centerboard down as it kept kicking up. I found a shred of line attached to the transom and saw some pics - figured that was what is missing. There was barely any wind so it didn't make too much...

    Update. Mine did too. I was surprised but there is another hole in the main. I assume it's the reef point.

    I just got mine last week and need to attach. I have seen a lot of ways to do this. The easiest is moving the brackets out on the baby bob so it fits the mast. I just have issue with drilling holes in some thing that is to keep me upright! I guess if you sealed up the holes properly then this...

    I just bought an 85 in perfect condition. I have been after this boat for a while. I have read the short comings, ordering the baby's bob etc. How are you handing reefing the main? I have read getting the main to a sail maker to put in a reef point? Is that the solution? I am fairly new to...
