RS200 Continuous Kicker..A few months ago I bought an old RS200, sail number 489. It hadn't been modernised at all and still had the old square running system on it, anyway that's another story but i removed all that, along with a handful of spares from inside the bowsprit. But one of the important things that I wanted was a continuous kicker, as there's nothing worse than rounding the windward mark and needing to dump the kicker to find that all the spare rope is down to leeward!
The block is an A2026
I drilled a small 3 mm pilot hole in the grab rail and fitted them with a couple of 20 mm pan head stainless screws, ran the rope from the cleat up to the new blocks and then fitted a small bullseye fairlead on in front of the centre jammer to guide the sheet back over to the other side.
I took the boat out for its first sail with my 5 year old son yesterday and although there is a bit of slack rope knocking around when the kicker is pulled on, it worked perfectly.
Any questions please ask
