Need help from someone who has previously installed the rudder upline kit or homemade version thereof.
I received the kit to replace the upline rudder bungie on my Big A.
I looked as best I could at the situation with a mirror. At my age bifoculs don't work so good with a mirror system.
Tried feel. This is where I get confused.So I checked all the previous posts on KFS re:

Some help, but I need a bit more.
If your up to it open the following in a new window and see if you can help with my question.

I understand everything except paragraph 3 and the two photos with it. In the text:
3) There are two bungees
attached to the up/down control
arm, looped around eyelet posts (note plural)
on either side of the end of the control arm. The up-line bungee is
the one attached to a line running from the bungee to the stern of the
Detach the up-line bungee from the eyelet post.
I don't see TWO eyelet posts. Looking at the right hand photo it looks to me that there is only one (1) eyelet post with two different bungies looped over it. The index finger appears to be pushing the top bungie off the eyelet while the thumb holds the down cable out of the way.
The next photo on the right shows the one bungie cord removed. The up line.
As best I can feel there is only one eyelet post also.
Am I correct? There is only one eyelet post? If I push up on the top bungie cord I am removing the up line, the bungie I want to replace?
This is a difficult manuver working blind. Just want to be sure of this critical step and I don't get the up confused with the down.
IF for example there are TWO eyelet posts how do you determine the upline? With the downline also going to the rudder, the sentence The up-line bungee is the one attached to a line running from the bungee to the stern of the
didn't help me much.
The rest of the procedure seems straight forward enough.[/i]
