Re: Jib attachment question




David
I have sailed for years with my jib attached to a tee fitting on the tack.
One thing you need to do to keep the tack from coming off when the sail is
slack, is take a piece of shock cord and seize it around the bow pulpit, and
put an eye in the other end so it is short of the tee. Hook your sail to the
tee, and stretch the cord over the tee. This should solve your problem.
Shock cords do wear out, and you will have to replace it every five years or
so.
