"Adriano, You have tension on the "throat" halyard, but not on the "peak" halyard, You need to "peak up" by pulling hard on the peak halyard. Roger"

Budget Boater replied to adriano meis's discussion Where am i wrong?
"This is not caused by an old sail. Step one is to lower the entire sail by about 12 inches (300 mm) by reducing the downhaul length by that amount. Raise the sail until the halyard is tight. Pull the topping lift (throat halyard) until the gaff is…"

Robert Hughes replied to adriano meis's discussion Where am i wrong?
"Maybe it is old but I think the main problem is the end of the gaff is too low.  I tried pulling the bottom of the luff sleeve tighter on mine and it didn't help much.  I needed to bring the top lower (like when reefed) or use a…"

Brad Ingram replied to adriano meis's discussion Where am i wrong?
"You need to crank the shit out of the peak halyard. It should be at about a 45 degree angle. I let the gaff hang down when hoisting so there is no resistance on the mast. Once the throat is where I want it I lock it down and then pull the peak up…"

"I thought the same. Nevertheless, even if I pull down the sail from the botton, nothing changes.  do you think the sail might be ....old?"

Robert Hughes replied to adriano meis's discussion Where am i wrong?
"I'm not an expert on these rigs but I suspect the peak halliard is not pulling the back of the sail up high enough.  The same thing happened with mine the first time I raised it.  The way I solved it was to tie a lashing between the…"

Yes Adriano.  That is a pole that is mainly used as a spinnaker/whisker pole, but we also use it to support our deck tent, and to catch the mast when it is coming down.

now I see. I'm still thinking a good way to make our deck tent. But I did not find it yet. I think the "ridge tent" sistem is not suitable in strong wind and annoyng in moderate breeze

Adriano, I have posted some pics with details of the mastfoot. It is the standard mastfoot for Tiki 30, built from 12mm plywood (or 9mm as in the plans), the 2 blocks and cleats are for main halyard, I must still add one cleat for spinnaker and one for main downhaul. The spliced line you see is for the main downhaul. The compass box is my idea and not in JWD plans. I hope this helps. Ralf
