Re: rig a spinnaker f32/33

I believe there is a drawing of the rigging in the manual that is posted on the forum.
Also if you look around a bit you can find Rick Simmonds excellent write up on setting, using and dousing the spinnaker.
Good luck

Re: F 32 Toping Lift - replace line - how is it rigged?

I had a new jib made by Dave late last summer. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet because i didn’t launch this season. Can’t wait to see what a new sail feels like. He was certainly interesting to talk to when i went to pick it up. He told me the stories of how it came to be and how he came to wor...

Re: Port windows F32

I haven’t pulled mine yet but i believe on the 32’s at least the widows sit proud of the fibreglass. There would be no difference it the levels. It’s a nice clean look. What adhesive was used to attach the glass?

Re: F 32 Toping Lift - replace line - how is it rigged?

That looks like the topping lift would interfere with the angle of the camber spar. I have it rigged to the smaller loop and the sheet attached at the longer loop. The pull of the sheet forces the spar to roll to the best angle.

Re: F 32 Toping Lift - replace line - how is it rigged?

I’m doing this from memory so bear with me. The sheet goes from the top of the spring up to the block on the end of the camber spar then back down to the block at deck level through the deck organizer and back to the cockpit.
Hope that helps.

Re: Dinghy mounts

Unfortunately no. They look pretty slick though. Hopefully someone will know.

Scuppers. I have the same on my F32.

This is from overhead with the bow at bottom of pic. The two lines show where the bolt holes are located.

Re: F32: Looking for a picture of the “L” bracket on mast base

My boat does not have a “L” bracket. There are two bolt holes in the top hat and there are two matching holes through the base of the mast. Hope this helps. Sadly i don’t have a side view photo of the holes and currently we’re not allowed in the boat yard due to the quarantine.
