Some of my Upgrades
Rigging Upgrades to my boat Jet Lag
I am currently in the process of selling my boat and in doing this the people purchasing it asked for some pictures so I created a document with pictures and brief explainations of some of the upgrades that I have done to my boat. Since I had this done, and many of you have asked for the information on my old website, I figured that I would share this with you. It is not as in depth as my website was but it will give you a view of the upgrades and an idea of how I did it.
I have very mixed emotions about selling my boat. This boat is a 1981 TMI model that is in excellent shape and it is rigged primarily for racing. This boat deserves to be raced and due to my work I have not been able to rcae as much as I used to. The fact of the matter is that the last time this boat was on the water was at the nationals in Colorado last year, and before that the nationals in St. Louis. I do have another pile of pieces/parts but I just have not been able to get around to working on it. That pile is an early 70's model Chrysler, (the original design), and it obviously needs a lot of work. I hope to refurbish it and document the process, but until then I hope that the doument below will help you with some of your questions. I will try to add to the document as time allows, but for now, here it is.
Centerboard Gasket Replacement
This is a very common, and very simple repair. The one in this file was done on a 1976 Chrysler but the same holds true for all of the Mutineers that I have owned.
