Rigging Tayana 37 Cutter

The previous owner of my Tayana removed the rigging of the staysail to make it easier to sail singlehanded. I am considering going back to the cutter configuration, but can't find any info on how to do so. Could anyone with a 37 help me with where to find a resource? Lots of pictures would be helpful.
Or does anyone have pics of how their boat is rigged, and how lines lead to cockpit? As with many other aspects of the boat, I am clueless on the removed rigging.:face palm:
Thanks
Ken

If the mast and deck connection are still there any rigger can do it.

Contact Tayana directly for advice. They are still proud of the 37. Wilson Chang will be a great help and a valuable resource.

Re: Rigging Tayana 37 Cutter

If there is a rigger in your harbor/area that you feel comfortable with, I'd invite him/her to the boat for an hour of his/her time. This should be really, really simple, unless the previous owner tried to remove all traces of the staysail stay.

Briefly, you'll need:

A tang on the mast for the upper end.
A chainplate (or heavy padeye) on the deck for the lower end.
A halyard exiting below the mast tang that runs to the base of the mast, and perhaps back to the cockpit.
Tracks and sheet blocks on the cabin top (I think).
A pair of small winches to tension the sheets.

I think that you should be able to self-survey and see how many of these items are on the boat, but a rigger would figure it out in minutes.

Cheers,

Chuck

Re: Rigging Tayana 37 Cutter

Ken - seems were neighbors... id be happy to have a look with you and help you sort this out... a hyfield lever on the staysail stay will let you disconnect it temporarily if you are going to be doing lots of tacking to windward...

is jasmine rain the boat? im off the sailing club by 45th street too if that's the case

Re: Rigging Tayana 37 Cutter

Freelandken I assume you have the information you need. If you haven't I can tell you how our staysail is rigged. I'm at absolute fan of the staysail.
