Neil Pryde World Cup Mk IV plastic widgets

Post by Bruce Cotse » Thu, 01 Jun 1995 04:00:00


Hi,

I recently bought a 6.5 sq metre Neil Pryde World Cup Mk IV second hand
and with it cam a bag of bits (spare bat cam and that sort of thing).  
Also in this bag of bits were some white nylon/plastic eliptical loops
about an inch long.  Can anyone explain what they are for or are they
just some stray bits of junk?

regards,

Bruce C.

they might be for the bat cams
to keep them shut
they sometimes will fly open

Sorry, proper Haiku must be 5-7-5 and contain a seasonal reference:

storm fronts ride jet stream
waking bud pops open like
bat cam without clip

Hi too,

I have got a MK IV too, and it is your lucky day, I know what the white
nylon bits are.

If you don't use the recomended NP mast, you can adjust the size of your
cams. By putting these parts between batten and cam. You can only adjust
to a mast with a smaller diameter.

Hope this helps,

Ramon

They are plastic spacers to insert behind the cams to tension the luff pocket
if you have a mast that is not a Carbon 60. If your cams are too tight on the
mast and they are not rotating you might want to check behind the cams and
remove any spacers that may be there.
The bat cams have nothing to do with the tension of the roller cams that
rest against the mast. The bat cams should NOT be over tensioned. Usually
the sails are shipped with the correct batten tension. You should never have
to adjust the bat cams.

When there is space between the mast and the cam(s), remove the cam, put
in that nylon loop and then put back the cam, so that they fit.
