    Mastcap Lube?

    I think I figured it out when I tried to follow one of the online rigging videos. My halyard is so thick that it can't loop thru the pullu twice. Upon discovering this I noticed that the end cap slot is narrower than the halyard. Since the boat came this way I didn't think anything about it.

    Mastcap Lube?

    Is there a trick for making sure the wind doesn't change direction too much

    Mastcap Lube?

    My challenge is "how do you do this while seated"? I was getting stuck with the last foot or so of line when the wind began to affect the sail

    Mastcap Lube?

    is it possible to lubricate the mast cap to make hoisting the sail easier? Thanks in advance Jeff

    Basic Repairs

    After looking at your pictures, I do have the bailer. How do I figure out if it works without sinking on my first outing :)

    I'm new to sailing and bought a 1972 Sunfish to learn on. I would appreciate advise on the plug at the bottom (its only a hole now) and recommended videos and resources of sailing, maintenance and repair. I'm lookig forward to this new adventure. Jeff
