Taipan Internal Downhaul

downhaul taipan f16

Someone’s just asked how you change the internal downhaul in the Taipan 4.9 mast. And, since one has asked for it, others will probably need it too. So the above is a diagram to help you with it.

It’s a bit fiddly but since you only have to do it once every few years. it’s not too bad. Mind you, they didn’t go internal on the Viper so that’s a whole lot easier to see and change when the time comes!

Any questions, fire away here…


About prosailing

In Southeast Asia a long time and all the while, sailing cats. But the cat love-affair began when I finished building my first catamaran at age 15... "never again". After building 2 more Formula 16 cats in Malaysia it's really 'never again'. Now we have a large fleet of high-tech speed machines including the Nacra 20 Carbon. Then we decided to spread our wings a little more and imported the Corsair Dash 750. Now we are well on the way to establishing a Coastal One Design Dash Class. As a test bed, we had 4 Dashes take part in the Neptune Regatta and now the plans are rolling out.
