Yes, mast tang... never can remember that thing.
I put pix of the SX stock sail vs the SX squaretop from Whirlwind over at the beachcats.com here:http://www.thebeachcats.com/pictures/?g2_itemId=83205
Now... I had that squaretop cut to fit a standard H18 mast...so sometime I'll take pix again comparing my shorter squaretop w/a standard H18 sail.
[quote="BrianCT"][quote="RobPatt"][quote="BrianCT"]Has anybody tried running the larger SX jib on a standard H18? Is this even possible without relocating the tang (maybe by shortening the upper forestay and lengthening the lower one)?[/quote]
Yes, a buddy and I do it all the time.
You need the SX forestay, and remove the short pigtail 16 inch or so mini-forestay, just connect the swivel and halyard pulley to the 'hound' or whatever you call that thing...
here's a pic of that, scroll down a bit...http://www.osyc.com/index.php?module=Co ... iew&pid=22
Thanks Rob. By "hound", are you referring to the mast tang that the mini forestay gets shackled to on a standard 18? If yes, I might seriously consider upgrading to an SX-size jib next time. I really enjoyed looking through the photos on your site. Looks like you have an excellent club there with more than a few H18s![/quote]
