    What size split rings for classic laser Boomvangs?

    i bought the entire boom kit. i made the mistake of riveting the block on via the strap. it would be really nice to be able to remove that block sometimes so if you do that, get a swiveler or a shackle or something. just my 02. ymmv. i picked up an entire bag of the stainless cotter rings from...

    Yeah. I figured out the twist shackle thing already and it should go right on. So not worried.. I'll setup the laser and shoot a line against the mast at some point if I can figure out a decent horizon.. The laser performance boom blocks and traveller block are the same..dropped right on and...

    That's very interesting about the mast rake..I guess the more important thing would be where is it when the jib is up. Because that can all be adjusted with jib Cunningham too..this damned boat tuning thing hurts my head. The fore stay is pretty loose when the jib is up. Don't distract me...

    hey...does that mean mines the oldest??? 953! :) and from the same shop!!! looking at his, hes got the jib tracks. it looks like the mast has been retrofitted for the bottle adjusters for the diamonds too. you can see the original holes machined just a little lower near the step. thats gotta be...

    And don't forget a stopper on your mainsheet after it goes through the ratchet. Trying to restring all of that after you flip it totally sucks.

    Hmmm....diamond shroud question

    So...quick update. I basically filled the bottom of the mast with wd40 through the main halyard block and let it soak for a few days. One of the adjusters now turns freely.. the other is still a little sticky so I re hosed it again. Fingers crossed.
