C22 halyard rigging

Postby Reality » Fri Feb 12, 2016 9:16 am

The halyards on my C22 are very/too simple. The halyards are just terminated on cleats at the bottom of the mast. This can be tricky when solo sailing in decent winds. I'd like to run the lines though halyard turning lift blocks at the bottom of the mast, out to another block and then back to the winches, clutches, cam cleats.

Wondering if I need a mast plate to attach the turning blocks so pulling force is at bottom of mast or if the turning blocks can be mounted through cabin roof? If anyone has a well working line management scheme to bring halyards to the cockpit I'd like to hear what you did (and what you'd do different if starting over) Any pics greatly appreciated. thanks

My answer was a Mast plate with turning blocks under the mast hook or hinge and then cheek blocks on the coach top turning the lines aft. I also added cleats on the coach top to tie the halyard off!

THANKS Did you go with a purchased plate or make one? I see many sizes/types for sale. If purchased, which one worked?

Halyard organizer

This is a generic setup for running halyards aft. This is not my boat, but I have a similar setup using Harken swivel blocks and Spinlock organizer with Spinlock rope clutches. I'll try to post an image of mine soon.

thanks for replies & pics. Would it be best to route both main/jib halyards to same side for simplicity or to separate sides to avoid any tangles? thanks

Just FYI,

the main and JIb halyards can technically be rigged any way you want.

However the standard/common method is the main halyard to starboard and the jib halyard to port.

I would stick to standards only because it will be easier for you when you change boats and easier for experienced crew on your boat.

I'll be doing mine this spring as soon as it warms up a bit. I'll give you a complete breakdown of manufacturer and part numbers. I'm keeping my costs down and not going to use any rope clutches but if I had boat loads of cash to spend I'd be adding the rope clutches.

As Capt Scott says the standard is just that but I'll be adding a spinnaker halyard, downhaul and possibly the boomvang and reefing lines all leading aft to the cockpit.

thanks again for information. I look forward to info on mfg & part numbers. I think I'm going with clutches even though $$$.
