V12 Build In Texas - Sprit Rig Info

Post by davidyoungblood » Mon Mar 23, 2020 10:30 am

Ordered the kit today!

Does anyone have a link to video showing the rigging and usage of a Sprit Rig?
The pictures in the build packet are helpful, but I could really benefit from "moving pictures" :)

Jaysen built this boat with that rig. Here's one shot and I'm sure there's more and probably a video; plus you could contact him.

Just tell me what you want to know. It is super simple but you can be "like Jaysen" and make it complicated if you want.

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

I bought a copy of "The Sailmaker's Apprentice" which has a good explanation of the sprit rig on pages 49-53. It helped me a lot in understanding what I was looking at on the sail plan drawing for my D5.

Jacques rigging directions were all I used.

Things I think are critical:
1. Lace to the mast LOOSE. Like super loose.
2. Use a down haul on the mast not a halyard.
3. Once you know where the sprit goes, run the snotter through a block. Helps to douse sail on the water.
4. You do not need it but an adjustable bridle with a block and a long tiller make it easy to operate from the mid mid seat.

As far as sailing, the mid location for sailing really is key. Keeps nose down. Get your weight so you are on side of the hull as much as possible and she will move fast. Play with the dagger... you don’t need much and it WILL make the boat handle completely different. It handles bad with too much dagger.

Let me know if you have any questions not answered.

I think it needs rum in place of the dagger. :lol:
