Looks to me like the line coming out the rear crossbar going aft is a chicken line and the line going forward is a bungy that just gets in the way? It doesn't look like a trip for the tack line. I zoomed in and see it forward (looks just like the assembly manual).
Nice looking set up! Any changes or upgrades?
What differences have you noticed between sailing the Tiger & WildCat?

The line to the rudders from the rear crossbar is the chickenline
And the other is a bungychord ,and is seamless spliced into the spi tackline
So the tackline is always tight

Other changes ? 2010 rudders (we have a 2009 Wildcat )

Mast rotation endlessrope under the tramp and a quickrelease for upwind/downwind

And an trapeze handle for releasing the tackline on the tramp
A cat long light joystick
extra bigger spi bloks
4 to 8 mm mainsheet

Wow, sweet looking boat; I'm definitely, officially, jealous.
