DF95 B rig

Recommended Posts

I have a B rig to build. Is there a set of instructions I can download for B,C and D rig dimensions?

I am starting with the principle that the assembly is basically the same as for the A rig and putting in enough back stay tension to get parallel gaps between luff and mast and then winging it for the jib?

But is there anything in black and white?

i followed the guidance in the manual as for an A rig and then set up the forestay and backstay using the rig set up guide on Nigel Barrow's site.  rig seemed to work OK like that.  hope this helps.

Thank you for that - I’ll have a look. What’s his site called? Maybe Google will answer that one!!

Rig now built and help much appreciated. Of course it’s easier than you anticipate but it’s a pity that Joseway don’t do a guide. And now the fun will begin trying to tune it!! 
I must start looking at some of the literature and videos!
