I have a 1985 Hobie 16 with what looks to me to be a setup with the short upper forstay, jib block assy and downhaul block, and lower forstay.
I have never rigged the boat. I purchased all new rigging. Does the Jib itself go outside (forward) of the Forstay.
I am not sure the way I have it setup is correct, and I am not sure the way I have the jib halyard wire fed through the Jib Block is correct either as the pulley one quarter of the of block (the upper right hand corner in the pic, hard to see in the image) is enclosed.
This is the last step before I raise the mast for the first time. thanks
Here is a picture of what I have come up with for sequence.
