Hello there, my fellow Mozziphiles. I am wondering if my setup for jib sheeting is "normal". I understand the logic of it, but it leads to a "cluttered" tramp and it likes to get @#$%^&* tangled up as soon as I look away from it. It consists of a 40cm. long track running fore and aft on each hull beside the tramp boltrope. A wire (shroud diameter)is shackled to a sliding car (with stopper)on each track.(i.e across the tramp). The jib blocks are shackled to this wire, and can move in towards the center beam approx. 20cm. when sheeted in hard. There are loops of shock cord attached to the shackles at the base of the blocks to slide them outwards for downwind sailing. Does this setup sound familiar to anyone? I am going to try dispensing with the transverse wire, and having the jib sheet blocks attached to the track instead. I know this will widen the sheeting angle of the jib, and widen the slot between the sails but it may be worth it for the fact there will be less tangles, less "clutter", and quicker tacks hopefully.

Hi Glider,

Yes your setup does sound familiar and allows for heaps of adjustment. smile The alternative and an easy way to remove the clutter and fittings is to have a sailmaker re-inforce the trampoline (assuming it is pretty good condition) and put a series of eyelets that allow you to feed a mounting rope through the holes.

Put knots in the mounting rope on the underside of the trampoline and connect the jibsheet pulley/ratchet to the rope loop on the top side via shackles. You may want to try a few positions to get the ideal mounting point allowing for trampoline and rope deflection under jibsheet tension. grin

Naturally, the opposite side will be a mirror image of your marked location through the trampoline centreline. blush

You can then start to clutter the system up by putting a barber hauler system out to the side stays so that you can increase the jib slot angle as required for reaching. cool

This system will reduce allot of the clutter or at least have most of the clutter on the leeward hull away from where you are positioned. cool

Regards,

Peter

the problem using the hull track is that the sheeting angle is too wide
the wire that you have is the way it was done in the past now we just use the rope loops or I have a webbing tape about 10mm wide sawn onto the tramp to allow a number of loops big enough to connect the block via a snap shackle

simple and soft on the knees

i have the bridle rope system on my stingray. yes, i know its not a mozzie. however i have had super champion peter dunk sew two slots in my tramp where the bridle rope passes under the tramp in between the jib sheet blocks. it removes clutter quite well. on the mozzie, i had the jib sheet pulleys running on the tracks with a barber hauler system to pull them inwards and downwards same time.
either way works great, as long as you remove clutter, its all good.
