I just bought a Warrior 35. (I've always wanted one since I worked for a charter
fleet that had one in Italy
in the late 70s and now they've finally got cheap
enough for me to buy one!)
Mine (Kahlua, currently in Ijmouden) has a number of things that need attention, and here's one of them.
The spreaders are pretty much horizontal. Now I know that the previous owners had a mast
disaster in 2007 ish whiich resulted in a new mast
, boom and standing rigging
being fitted, so my initial thought was that they'd been fitted wrong at that point.
But looking around the web, I find quite a few pics of other warriors which seem to be rigged the same way.
Eg this one

So, the obvious question - leave well alone or change for the 'correct' rig where the spreader angle 'bisects' the stay, i.e points slightly upwards? Any and all opinions welcome, but especially any warrior 35 owners.
And while we're at it, is there really no owners club//website for these classic boats?
