Hi all,

In my excitement to get on the water I left my Aussie pigtail and bow shackle on the tramp and drove off and of course lost the works between home and the lake.

I don't want to wait for an order to get here to Canada so I thought I would get one crimped at our local chandlery. Thing is I don't know the dimensions for this pennant and was wondering if anyone out there knew what the dimensions should be. I think the shorter pigtail should be 6" but don't know for sure. I have no clue what the longer one is.

The boat is an '85 Hobie 16 and not modified to my knowledge other than a comp tip and aussie jib conversion.

The pigtail I lost is like this one Murrays p/n 02-3300 Image

Thanks so much for your help.

Cheers,

skydog

The one on my 2000 boat (seems to be original) is about 8.75" eye to eye. It is constructed slightly differently than the one that I bought as a kit for my '78 boat but I don't have that one here to measure.

Thanks Anton,

Can I assume correctly that the measurement you provide is the longer leg of the pigtail?

That would add up about right. The upper forestay is 6-1/2" and the jib block (not used now) between it and the lower forestay is about 2-1/2" for a total of 9" from lower forestay to mast tang.

I would risk a guess at the shorter (not as critical) leg to be about 6" as originally thought.

Anyone out there with both dimensions?

Cheers,

skydog

Gosh, anyone?? (thank you again AntonLargiader)

I thought this would be a real easy thing to nail down and get made.

Cheers all,
