Rigging a Spinnaker

I have an 18ft Jolly Boat that I have just fitted with a spinnaker though I have yet to finish rigging it.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to the simplest and cleanest way ro rig the sail?

Thanks,

mast steping on a fiberglass jollyboat

I am looking for information on how to step the mast on a fiberglass boat that I was told is a Jollyboat.  The mast is aluminum and has a UK manufacturer.  Both hull and upper decks are molded fiberglass.  The foredeck has a “cutout” slot for the mast.  The sole of the boat has a small “slot” for the base of the mast which has a “screw with a phenolic disk”, I presume for tensioning the mast & stays.  Any advice is welcome; what should the mast base look like and the reciever?

Class Rules

Does anybody have any thoughts on the class rules? I ask from the perspective of considering a new rudder for JB9 and would consider a more modern profile than suggested in my copy of the rules. I aim to keep mine within the spirit of the class but wondered what other considerations people had?

Advice needed on rigging a kite

I have an 18ft Jolly boat in Portland, Oregon USA ( a picture on the site shows it as the “Canadian” jolly boat)  and I recently had a spinnaker made for it according to the original plans.  I dont think the boat has ever been rigged for a spinnaker and as I also a novice at using a kite I am looking for advice.   What is the accepted rigging method on the Jolly boat? Any advice (no matter how obvious) would be appreciated.

Association Gets Full set of Jollyboat plans from ebay

Andrew Richardson – the association’s ‘Keeper of Records’  has just had a great success on ebay.

A full set of Fairey Marine plans came up for auction and the owner emailed me to ask if I was interested.  I was, but it made far more sense for Andrew to bid and me to pray that he got them rather than try and compete.

Well he did and I was thrilled!  It is a fantastic bit of news for the asociation and a completely irreplaceable part of the history for our class.  Not quite sure how yet, but I hope that we will be able to digitise them and put them up on the site here some time in the future:

Here is what the full set of plans  includes:
