WHISKER POLE, HEADSAIL
Our Price: $179.00

Also known as a dousing sock or a spinnaker sock. Light grey in color.
Considered the best dousing sock on the market. High quality breathable material. Tangle resistant design. Kevlar funnel, slips easily over spinnaker. Works much better than less expensive designs with a wire hoop.

This compass can be hand held, or installed in any inclination or position, vertical, horizontal, lying flat or even upside down. The Iris is a race course compass which can also be used to take hand bearings. Easily moved around the boat, it is simply clipped onto its smooth-edged bracket, which is designed not to catch sails or hurt fingers. A soft rubber casing provides protection against shocks.• Conical 2-3/4" card with double reading (direct and horizontal) 5° graduations• Sophisticated construction with motion dampening and expansion diaphragm• Gimbaled magnetic set--- the card remains perfectly horizontal, whatever the angle of installation• 2 mobile lubber lines• Floats• Length: 8"; weight: 10.3 oz.

We recommend this telescoping pole (6'-12') for all Macgregor models. While Forespar says to use a larger size, we have found that the larger pole is too heavy to use in light wind without the complexity of a pole lift line. An added benefit is that if you completely lose control of things in a big blow, the plastic end fitting will break, acting as a sort of "fuse". These fittings are inexpensive and easy to replace. We stock these poles with latch fittings on both ends as we have found the "spike" style poles tend to come out of the sail grommet if the sail shakes a lot or goes slack. Instead latch securely onto the leeward sheet.

Everything is included in this kit for all boats except for 26M. If you have a 26M you must add the additional mast padeye bracket.

Because of the length this item ships oversize, and is subject to an additional $25 shipping charge. If we are able to get a cheaper shipping rate we will manually adjust your invoice accordingly.

This kit gives you all the blocks, line and hardware to install a Boom Vang on any Mac except the 26M (use kit 3301-1M0). Does not work with early boats equipped with the roller reefing boom when the sail is actually reefed. Most boats already have the holes drilled in the mast and boom for the attachment bolts. If yours does not, you will have to drill two 1/4" holes.

SPREADER, FIXED BASE, RETROFIT KIT SINGLE LINE REEFING KIT "ADD A HALYARD" SPINNAKER KIT
SINGLE LINE REEFING KIT
Our Price: $99.00

This is a great upgrade for any older boat with loose spreaders that can fold up against the mast. Greatly improves both the strength and stiffness of the rig, making it much easier to get good headstay tension. Improved headstay tension means improved upwind performance. Fits 3.5" X 4" teardrop style mast (1967 thru 2003). Most 26X models came with rigid spreaders standard, some early boats did not.

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.


Complete kit for adding a spinnaker halyard. Includes 66' 5/16" hayard line, mast cleat, and mast tangs with block. Mount mast tang 18"-24" above your headstay tang. Kit includes all stainless mounting hardware. If you have a Tattoo or 26M please use part #3810-1M4. This kit is made for anything older than 2003.
LAZY JACK KIT SPREADER BASE, FIXED, PAIR SPINNAKER HARDWARE KIT
LAZY JACK KIT
Our Price: $89.00
SPINNAKER HARDWARE KIT
Our Price: $45.00

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.
Replacement fixed spreader sockets only, THIS PART NUMBER DOES NOT COME WITH THE SCREWS AND BOLT TO ATTACH IT
Tack pennant, to help keep your spinnaker flying out in front of the bow rail, and two small turning blocks for the spinnaker sheets. The two small blocks attach to your stern rail cleats. Works best on stainless cleats, if you have the black plastic cleats you will need to add a small loop of line through the middle of the cleat to attach the turning blocks to. By sheeting all the way to the stern cleats on your boat you will insure proper sheeting angles for sailing performance.

SPINNAKER HALYARD RELOCATION KIT OUTHAUL KIT, CUSTOM WIND INDICATOR, WINDEX AV
OUTHAUL KIT, CUSTOM
Our Price: $39.00
WIND INDICATOR, WINDEX AV
Our Price: $35.00

Used to relocate the spinnaker halyard a recommended 18" to 24" above your headstay for flying an assymetrical spinnaker. Includes nuts and bolts. This is the tang set, bolts, and halyard block.
All boats, allows you to easlily and accurately adjust outhaul tension. Modifies the boom only.
This wind indicator fits over any standard Shakespeare or Metz antenna. This eliminates the need for a stand-off bracket. YOU MUST HAVE A MASTHEAD MOUNTED VHF ANTENNA FOR THIS TO WORK.

The included tacking angle arrows are not useful on the 26M or Tattoo boats because of their rotating mast.
SPREADER BASE, FIXED, RETROFIT TANGS, SET OF 4 CLEAT, CAM, HARKEN CARBO-CAM BALL BEARING WIND INDICATOR, SPAR-FLY
WIND INDICATOR, SPAR-FLY
Our Price: $28.00

Set of 4 tangs to allow reuse of stock lower shrouds when retrofitting to rigid spreader bases. No spreader bases or hardware.

Used for jib sheets or furling control line on most macgregors, not factory standard, will match factory mounting holes, but will not match cosmetically. Older boats used a variety of cleat styles, to match 1995 and newer boats exactly, use part # 4202-1V0. These cam cleats hold lines securely and release instantly for easy, precise trimming. Multiple rows of high-load ball bearings to reduce friction and V-shaped line entry allow cams to open easily for snap-down, rather than draw-through, cleating.

This little red wind vane sits at the top of your mast helping the skipper sail and look like a pro while sailing. This shows the direction the wind is coming from, helps you sail close to the wind and properly sheet your sails when off the wind.
REPLACEMENT VANE, WIND INDICATOR, SPAR-FLY STAND-OFF BRACKET, WIND INDICATOR, SPAR-FLY Gift Certificate

Replacement vane for the Spar-Fly wind indicator. This is the red plastic indicator only, no other hardware.

Stand-off bracket for the Spar-Fly wind indicator. First picture shows with the mast down the second picture shows the pop rivits and the flat stainless bracket. This is a flat stainless piece that bolts onto the backstay bolt and pop rivits onto the chicken head on boats that have the chicken head. Not for 26M. Does not include the wind indicator, the Spar-Fly wind indicator will include the small bracket to pop rivet onto this stand-off bracket. This is needed if you add a VHF antenna to the top of your mast, to hold the wind indicator off away from the antenna so it can turn!
