Aero's Mast and Rigging Pics

Here are some Pics of Aero's Mast and rigging. 

 I apologize in advance for the lack of photo quality.

Originally I wanted to lead the halyards to the cockpit. After less than six months, I'm  accustomed to the mast mounted winches so that is now a low piority.  The halyards are steel cable. 

I believe this is a fairly original setup with the exception of the boom that no longer rotates for reefing.

My slab reefing system is very simple. Two lines are secured aft on the boom, run up through the reef grommets and down to a pair of blocks, lead forward to a double block (barely viewable in the pic to right) at the mast, up through the forward reef points, and tied off on the mast mounted cleat.

You can see the inner shrouds attached to the mast at the spreader. 

The spreaders attach to the mast brackets with pins.  They make too much noise rattling in the wind while moored, so on my first trip up I'll tape them.

The swage terminated upper shrouds fit into keyed brackets on the mast.

Fortunately there is no work to do up there yet (knock on wood).  My Wind vane is off by a couple degrees.  The PO installed a tri colored light just before I purchased :)

If anyone needs pics of anything specific or better detail let me know.

Thanks for the post and pictures. They help after the mind becomes foggy after looking at thousands of boat parts spread over my shop for four years. Much appreciated.
