Catalina 22 Mainsheet Block Support
Category: Catalina 22, mainsheet, mainsheet block
Problem: The way the Catalina 22 mainsheet is rigged, the mainsheet block and cam cleat will fall down on the tiller when there is no tension on the mainsheet.
Action: To keep the block supported and off the tiller, but yet having it being able to move back and forth as the angle of the mainsheet changed, required supporting it by a line through the block connected to some bungee cords attached to the backstay tensioner.
Result: It works great!
When idea was conceived: 3/11/2010
How much time it took to develop: 1 hour
How much money it took to develop: $4.00
Current status: In use.
Since it was originally done: I have modified the arrangement slightly and have incorporated a little stronger bungee cords replacing the weaker ones I used initially.
