Hunter Cherubini 33 Running Rigging

I know that running rigging can be very personally specific for each boat owner. Have had a hard time finding info or a diagram of the running rig for this boat. Mine is a 79 model but any help on a 33 would be appreciated. There is a harken roller furling for my boat but have not received it yet. Would like to set it up for single handed.

Its pretty straight forward.. Foresail uphaul to raise the sail and leave it tied off..
For the furling line you need to chose port or stbd to run it down then get 4 or 5 small single blocks sized to your line.. varies to taste.
The first block should be fitted as far fwd as possible and should be at a height/angle good enough to provide a smooth feed on and off the drum that does not have it rubbing on the bottom as it is operated.. get bunching of line at the bottom and unwanted friction when hauling in the sail.
Space more blocks along the side fixed either to the toerail or stanchion bases and the last I like placed toward the aft of the cockpit so it does not get in the way of the sheets and winches.. a real pain on some badly set up boats I have delivered..aits also a better position to haul in from.. You may need an appropriate sized cleat fitting to tie of on tho some prefer a jamming block for this.. not my favourite.
Genoa sheets as normal..
Hope this helps

Hard to say without knowing what you want.. lines leading back to the cockpit or standard.. what's your reefing system.. single line.. traditional drop slab..
Guess you know how to replace old running rigging.. sew one end of the new to the end of the old and pull it through..

Re: Hunter Cherubini 33 Running Rigging

Want to run all to the cockpit. Not sure of single or slab. Have to do some checking on that.

Re: Hunter Cherubini 33 Running Rigging

I have owned one of these boats since 1982, although mine has been dormant for quite awhile as I run a Leopard 45 in the charter trade in the BVI.

Anyway, I did live aboard my Hunter for 19 years, cruised it a lot, and know it very well. Your mainsheet is attached at the end of the boom. The traveler is about eight inches aft of the forward end of the cockpit, very good mechanically, but something you need to watch out for, safety-wise. The main sheet has a four part purchase and ends in a clam cleat on the bottom block. It is extremely easy to sheet in, regardless of conditions. The traveller has no control lines and only has stops, so it's more awkward to adjust. Still worth doing.

The reefing lines on most of the 33's emerge at the forward end of the boom. On some of the later boats, the reefing lines were led back to the cockpit, but it's not necessary.

This is a very easy boat to singlehand, and there are lots of little mods you can do to improve it. Great layout for it's era. PM me if you want to discuss.

Cheers,
Tim

Re: Hunter Cherubini 33 Running Rigging

Thank you very much. Have started a thread under monohull sailboats. My boat transom is badly damaged and haven't started repairs. Just got the boat. Traded a 75 model 15 horse Evinrude someone gave me for the boat. Owner paid liveaboard fee including electric for a month and gave me $20. Also got a hard dingy. So with not much invested I can make repairs. Running rigging will have to be replaced and I will go through all the blocks and winches etc. Just wasn't sure where all the lines were run.

Just wondered who built the Mast and boom on my 1979 h33?

Re: Hunter Cherubini 33 Running Rigging

Congrats on your new project. Those Cherubini's have a great reputation and are well built. We have owned a 1981 H27c since 1983. Their is a Cherubini owners group with a large data base and helpful folks. The 33's are supposed to be particularly quick and easy to sail. Have fun.

Thank you. It's sure is a project with the fiberglass repair on the transom.
