    Karl,

    the simplest is to open this page (a JRA page but with public access).
    Up to the left you'll find those other chapters: https://junkrigassociation.org/arne/

    ..and then there is a bit more...

    Thanks Arne for a very good rigging writeup. Even that a lot of it is not needed for my very small Junk rigged sailboat I got  a lot of good ideas what I can make better on it like the webbing hoop for the mastlift. Just one question where can I find all previous chapters which are for sure also a good read for me ?

    Excellent Arne one of your best write-ups to date.

    Don't have any doubts about your English, it too is excellent. I will read it through very carefully anyway.

    (We need something like this for SJR too!)

    Thank you for your write-ups and I am sure this is on behalf of a lot of people.

    Chapter 7  (..of The Cambered Panel JR)
    Rigging the sail

    There!!!

    Finally, during a rainy weekend, I struggled my way through writing up that big and difficult chapter about rigging the junksail. It grew into a monster, as I feared, but still ‘only’ 17 (..er,18...) pages. Hopefully the diagrams and photos will explain details that my Stavanger-English fails to do.

    I hope to have someone do a proof-reading, eventually, so it becomes half-readable. Please let me know what I have forgotten or what I haven’t made clear enough.

    Here it is:  https://bit.ly/3kjEcgc

    Hi Arne

    I’m going to give the alternative sheeting system a try. Seems like a good way to clear the abundance of lines in the cockpit. 


    Good, Frederik.
    Just look for the line with lowest friction in it. The one I found at my boat equipment chandler, was called a ‘flag line’. In addition, go for rather large plastic thimbles, or even better, ‘Barton rings’, if they have it. This ensures that the sheetlets re-adjust themselves easily and thus distributes the forces evenly, as on my boat.

    Cheers, Arne

    Thanks for the clear demonstration of how you did it, Arne.  A simple and elegant approach that inspires me to do something similar.

    No high science was used  -  or divine patience, for that matter, Graham.
    I just found some scrap wood from the boat club’s workshop, and built up a sort of scaffolding for one endplate at the time. Only when I was happy with the position of the dry-fitted plate, did I mix some epoxy to peanut butter consistence. With epoxy smeared onto the edge of the endplate, I just pushed the plate onto the rudder  -  and then left the place. A few hours later, in the evening, I returned to find that the epoxy had set. Then I could just build up the same scaffolding on the other side and fit the other endplate. Next morning I could remove the scaffolding and add a string of epoxy to the underside. Job done.

    Most work went into making the endplates and giving them several coats of epoxy.

    Boat-fiddling during the 2020 season.

    The sailing season is approaching its end here in Norway, so while it was raining, yesterday, I produced a little write-up, summing up what I have done to my Ingeborg, this special season.

    Interesting notes, especially about the endplates, for me, as that is what I am considering for Blue Moon's rudder one of these days.  Enjoying just being lazy and drifting around Moreton Bay at the moment.  I am surprised at how efficient my small rudder is in the light airs I tend to sail in. I suspect running hard might test its limits.

    One question.  You said you just stuck the endplates on with epoxy, no bolts or glass.  How did you do that?  Sit there holding each one until the epoxy went off?  Even a saint might run out of patience!  I am sure you have a more clever answer.
