I have a 78 Tequila Sunrise that I rescued last summer as my first Hobie, and can't quite remember how to put the main sheet lines back in through the blocks. The diagram in the on-line manual is for the style that's been in use for some time since. Any old diagrams out there to help me?

Thanks,

Don

Remember that the block with the becket goes on the rear bale. That is, the block that you tie the line to, should be on the rear bale.

The first picture is the better way to go. You can sheet tighter before things start binding up.

Here is a diagram I got somewhere. Probably here at this forum.

Since I have the newer style boom with one bale I just attach both pulleys to that and it works fine

Thanks everyone! Exactly what I was hoping for. As it turns out, I guessed on the rigging and it matches the first picture, except for the final tie. Now I just need some decent weather to get out there!
