Hi weltj and welcome to the forum. I owned a Siren while I was in University and they are a great little daysailor/occasional overnighter. As I recall
, the mainsheet system changed during production - the original ones had a bridle
arrangement (two fiddle blocks on each corner of the transom), while some later ones had a single
fiddle block on the cockpit
With respect to the rest of the rigging
- very simple, actually. There was a basic furler
on the forestay, two shrouds mounted well aft and, if I remember correctly, no backtstay. There are two (I believe external) halyards that cleat on the mast
(no winch), an outhaul
on the boom (again without a winch) and two pivoting cam cleats
for the genoa sheets
(some also had small tracks and fairleads). That's about it.
For raising and lowering the mast
, attach the foot of the mast to the mast base with a pin, attach the halyards losely, have someone on deck
to guide the mast side to side, attach a line to the end of the forestay and have someone pull it up into position and then insert a clevis pin in one of the slots (there is no turnbuckle on the forestay, as I recall
, but rather slotted plates).
