General National 12 chat / What rope for main halyard?
« on: September 24, 2020, 09:38:09 AM »
Looking for a little bit of advice.
The main halyard on our Crusader is a shade too thick for the clam cleat at the bottom of the mast and it's inclined to jump out of the jaws and slip a bit.

Can anyone suggest what thickness to use - is 3mm ok or should I go 4mm?
And in particular what type of rope to buy to replace it? Had a look at the range of rope on sale on the pinbax website and now I'm completely bewildered!

General National 12 chat / Tacking with Aft Mainsheet
« on: July 31, 2020, 09:43:47 AM »
Looking for some tips on how to tack with the aft mainsheet. I've sailed for several years in boats with a centre mainsheet where you tack facing forwards, pushing the tiller extension across in front of you as you go. I'm struggling a bit with tacking facing out the back. Whatever I do I seem to end up in a heap on the cockpit floor, with the mainsheet wrapped round the tiller extension!! I think the extension may be a bit too long which isn't helping matters. Is there a clever way of doing it better?

General National 12 chat / Cover Wanted for Crusader
« on: May 02, 2020, 11:14:47 AM »
Hi all,

I've now completed the pandemic restoration project which is Crusader N3307. It's looking great and ready to go when we're finally let out. But the cover which came with it is a trailing cover with no holes for the mast or shrouds.

Does anyone have an old cover resting at the back of the garage which they would be prepared to sell? 50 waiting (or whatever other price you think would be suitable).
