In planning out the rigging on my Tiki 21, I'm lacking detail on how to rig the traveller. I'd be interested in how others have arranged the control sheets, blocks and cleats on the aft beam. I'd love to see how Little Cat is set up?
A dingy racing friend is talking about two cheek blocks on the aft beam to bring the control sheets in toward the centre and then each through a cam cleat with a fairlead.
Thanks Kim, I've just seen your video of the double main sheet arrangement. Do you feel this is an improvement over the traveler, and would it work out well on a Tiki 21?
My set up is close to standard. You can see it in this blog post. The only difference from most folks is that I use an autoratchet block with cleat for the mainsheet, instead of a swivel cleat. This makes the sheet easier to hold and haul on the wind. It works for me but is more fiddly than a swivel cleat.
