Re: Haida 26

If the rigging is bundled together and still attached to the mast that's easy:
The aft side of the mast will have a track or a groove for the mainsail to go up. All the rigging will be attached at the top of the mast and will be in the proper position when raised.

If it is not still attached to the mast then you have a problem.

There will be 2,3 or 4 short wires that are the lower shrouds. From looking at photos I could find there are double lowers on the boat and they are symmetrically placed fore and aft of the mast so there should be 4 of them exactly the same length.

That should leave 4 longer wires.
Given that the rig is 15/16ths fractional and from inspecting a line drawing the back stay should be a bit longer than the other 4.

That leaves 3 wires. If 2 of them are exactly the same length and the 3rd is different, the different one is probably the forestay.

Often a forestay is one size larger (+1/32") than the other wires to compensate for anticipated wear by the jib hanks. Because of the small size difference you will not be able to see the difference. The swagings/terminals at each end may be marked with size. If not get a micrometer. If you don't have one or can't borrow one, then lay the 3 wires out next to each other on a flat concrete floor. Put the one you think is the forestay in the middle and lay a straight edge across them and see if they are the same diameter. IF you can rock the straight edge back and forth at all then the middle one is larger.

Also because of the wear of hanks on the forestay it may be shinier than the other 2.

If there is no difference in size or length then it really doesn't matter then it really doesn't matter which position each stay is installed in .

Re: Haida 26

Why not take a pic of what you have, it mite make it easyer to help. I have most of the spec's for this boat. There are 3 different sets of rigging spec's for this design. Also see if you can idenify the hull number. I know of two different builders of this design. Mayhew & Strut where the best hulls. ..Michael..

Re: Haida 26

Also you might join the Haida 26 Owners group. To find it, click community, then social groups, and find our group. I think there are about 20 members now, we all have information on these boats. Good Luck ..Michael..

Keet is alive and well. Recieved a brass ship's lantern this week to keep her dry while I'm away.

Re: Haida 26

Hello Gang,

I'm looking for the Haida Sail Insignia to put on a new mainsail. If anyone has a photo of one, could you please post it.

Thanks

Re: Haida 26

I am also interested in the sail logo as my main is fragile. Btw, any good source for the sail?

Re: Haida 26

I had North Sails in Portland, Or. Make my new main. Good sail, contact Kerry Poe there and he will come to your boat to measure the main. Great service from Kerry. I don't have his phone # handy. You can find him on face book. Michael S/V Ruby Jean hull #63
