Need to replace something on your Corsair? Save yourself time and call your Corsair Marine dealer who can provide you with any replacement part for all current Corsair trimarans.
Winter is a good time to carefully inspect your boat for broken, aged, or damaged equipment. One area of neglect that we often see on customer’s boats is the running rigging. Halyards and sheets don’t last forever. Sheets and halyards become stiff with embedded salt and degraded by UV. Your Corsair will be much more enjoyable to sail if you replace your running rigging over time. In many cases control lines and halyards can be downsized by using higher tech materials, thereby saving weight AND improving performance. Stock rigging systems can also be customized to achieve better control (see photo of 10:1 mainsheet on a Sprint created by adding two extra blocks--the standard system is 6:1).
A particularly important item of rigging that is often overlooked is the trailer winch line. This line typically does double duty and is called on for raising the mast. Risking your expensive mast with an old, worn, and sun damaged piece of line makes no sense when it costs less than $50 to replace the line but thousands of dollars to replace the mast. Your Corsair dealer can provide you with appropriate replacement rigging for your boat based on your type of usage (e.g. racing/cruising/daysailing) and your budget.
This is just one category of boat maintenance that your Corsair dealer can help you with. Don’t waste hours trying to reinvent the wheel, call someone who knows what you need.
