OUTHAUL KIT, CUSTOM

All boats, allows you to easlily and accurately adjust outhaul tension. Modifies the boom only.

Our Price: $34.00
MAINSAIL DOWNHAUL KIT

Our Price: $34.00
LAZY JACK KIT

Lazy Jack Lines are great for those who are looking for an easier way to contain the mainsail when it is lowered. This kit is good for all boats, and is a basic two leg system. While there are other multiple leg systems available we feel they become too difficult to raise the mainsail without tangling on battens. This two leg system will keep most of the mainsail on the boom when lowered, just finish containing the sail with a sail tie or two! Care must still be given when raising the mainsail so as not to catch the battens of the sail on the Lazy Jack lines.

Our Price: $79.00
SINGLE LINE REEFING KIT

This kit modifies the boom so you can reef the sail from the cockpit. Your mainsail must have slides and jacklines, or slides and a mast gate cover to work properly. With just slides and no jacklines or mast gate cover, you will need to remove 1 or 2 slides from the mast to reef. Works great with your halyards led aft to the cockpit. An easy way to update your old roller boom to a more modern system.

Our Price: $89.00
MAINSAIL CONVERSION, SLIDES ONLY

Mainsail slides allow you to quickly raise and lower your mainsail by relieving you from having to feed the bolt rope up the slot every time you raise it. The reduced friction also makes lowering a breeze, and makes it more convenient to store your mainsail on the boom. Picture shows the lower end of the mainsail with the slide on the jack line. This allows the slide to stack on top of the sail stop but allowing the sail to come all the way down to the boom for reefing. The rest of the slides are on the sail with a shackle to a grommet.


NOTE: This is not a kit that we can send to you. We will have you mail us your mainsail and a professional sailmaker will do the necessary modifications and install. Turnaround time is 1-2 weeks after we receive your sail.

Our Price: $99.00
MAINSAIL CONVERSION, INTERMEDIATE REEF ONLY

Intermediate reef point is for sails that come standard with only one reef point. The standard factory sail came with one reef point which was very high up the sail, meaning that you could reef but you would only have a very small portion of sail left to use. This high up reef point will become the second reef when you add the intermediate reef, or first reef. This means that you will now be able to reef sooner and still sail! As the wind picks up, you will want to reduce the heel of the boat but often won't want such a large reef, this option gives you the proper first choice. Shown are slides, jack line, and the big grommet is the first reef point, there will be a succession of these grouments in the sail.


NOTE: This is not a kit that we can send to you. We will have you mail us your mainsail and a professional sailmaker will do the necessary modifications and install. Turnaround time is 1-2 weeks after we receive your sail.

Our Price: $140.00
HALYARDS AFT KIT. 26C

This kit includes all of the hardware required to bring your main and headsail halyards back to the cockpit, just forward of the winch on the starboard side. This allows you to raise or lower two sails without going forward to the mast. Use one for the mainsail halyard, and if you have a roller furling jib you can use the second one for the spinnaker or jib sock. Unlike many kits, we use rope clutches to secure the tension on the halyards to assure a safe and positive lock that is easily adjustable.
The kit comes with Spinlock PXR rope clutches.

Our Price: $179.00
BOOMKICKER, W/NEW BOOM FITTING

A really convenient piece on the 26X as well as older boats.  Eliminates the need for a topping lift because it holds the boom up while raising, lowering, and reefing the sail.  Does not include the block and tackle part of the boom vang.  If you have no boom vang at all, order part # 3301-1V0 also.  Will need to be removed (very easy) to raise the pop top on 26C and older pop top boats.  THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY WITH ROTATING MASTS, DO NOT USE ON 26M.  3301-1v0

Our Price: $199.00
