I would add to the VinceH info that if you use spectra or an old halyard that is good quality for the gin pole shrouds, it keeps the whole rig stable. It gets precarious and your first time you'll be nervous but it works well. Also, tie a line to the loop under the spreaders that you use to...
Hi Bill, I may have what you seek. Send me an email to bst surf (nospace between) at gmail and I'll send pictures. For Sea Scouts, I would donate. I am looking for a rudder in case you come across one as well.
