Hoyt 32 jib stay

Postby JohnReinagel » Mon Jun 11, 2018 4:04 pm

I have read that the jib stay should be very loose, which mine is. I am running into an issue where when I get the jib onto the camber-spar hooks after much work that I cannot get the bottom hank onto the stay. If I loosen the stay more it really rests on the bow pulpit a lot, and even then I cannot get the bottom hank on without first hoisting the sail most of the way, and even then I can barely get the tack on also. I have thoughts about the sail not being cut properly, no clue who made it, thoughts of the camber-spar being too long etc, or maybe that I'm missing something else. Has anyone else encountered a similar situation? I don't feel it is proper for the stay to be rubbing on the pulpit at all, which really makes the hank and tack impossible to connect.

Hi John,
My fore stay is attached to the deck and is nowhere near the pulpit.
Hope that helps.
How are you attaching the forward end of the camberspar to the stay??

Hey Alan,

Yes mine is the same, but there are many factors not at all similar to a typical Bermuda rig. As nice as the sail is under sail, it's not overly friendly when it comes time to use it. I have found that as long as I manually raise the camberspar up to it's natural sail-raised resting spot I am able to get the tack and first hank on properly. I would not like to mess with it if the seas were not in a calm state though.

At the bow end of you camberspar should be a sheave that will rest on the stay then a captive device wraps around the stay and the sheave and on mine I have a clevis pin with fender washers which hold the sail, captive device (sorry not certain what to call it) and the sheave together. I have seen detailed drawings in the forum. It is also detailed in the Hoyt 32 manual that is available somewhere here.

Hi John,
Would you be able to send a photo of that piece? I'm in the process of re-rigging mine and forgot to take a picture of that part.
Thanks,
Alan
