QUICK PIN, MAINSAIL TACK / BOOM ATTACHMENT
This all stainless steel locking pin allows for an easier solution than the 1/4" bolt that held the boom to the gooseneck, or the bolt that holds the mainsail into the tack bracket.
Depending on your mainsail tack configuration it can be used in two different ways:
If your mainsail tack attaches to a "U" shaped bracket on top of the bolt that holds the gooseneck tube to the mast bracket then you can use this as the tack pin that goes horizontally through the "U" bracket. In this configuration it will not work to replace the vertical bolt through the mast bracket as the sail pulls upward on that bolt.
If your mainsail tack attaches to the front end of the boom using a clevis pin through the sail track (the way most MacGregors should be if rigged they have had slides added to a factory mainsail) then you can use this pin to replace the vertical bolt that attaches the gooseneck tube to the mast bracket making it really quick and easy to remove the boom.
OUTHAUL KIT, CUSTOM
All boats, allows you to easlily and accurately adjust outhaul tension. Modifies the boom only.
MAINSAIL DOWNHAUL KIT
Together with a mainsail that has sail slides, a sail slide stop, halyards led aft, and single line reefing, a Downhaul kit will now allow for total control of the mainsail without going forward onto the cabin top. Especially useful in moderate to heavy winds.
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.
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.
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.
The kit normally comes with two rope clutches, if you want to add the third one you must select it from the drop-down.
It is highly recommended to only use this kit if you have plastic sail slides. If you have a factory bolt rope and no slides you will probably want to add a downhaul to get the sail to drop like it should.
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
Traveler, Mainsheet, 26C
This custom traveler was designed by Blue Water Yachts to provide optimum sailing performance on all models of the 26 Classic. 2:1 control lines provide easy adjustment even in windy conditions. The 26C was designed to have a traveler that was never provided by the factory, so installation is easy. The kit includes all installation hardware and standard control lines (not the custom eye spliced ones in the picture).
