Musto Performance Skiff

Modified "boatbreaker" (Huud Ouwehand)

 

 

 

I use two Ronstan tripleblocks one with a cleat, an S-hook, a wide shackle and some rope to build the boatbreaker. I also replaced the standard chainplate with one used on the 49er. It has holes wide enough to attach the boatbreaker to.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This shot compares the shackle with the one used with the main halyard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You only have to pull the forestay one or two cm further down to apply the right tension to the rig because the chainplate will not be pushed forward due to the boatbreaker being attached to the chainplate.

Note: put the line trough the blocks as shown in the picture, because if you keep the blocks parallel to each other, the line will get lots of resistance due to crossing lines!

NOTE: It is recommended to use a shackel at the top not a hook as shown below as the hook can open up under tension leading to the mast coming crashing down :-(
