Pacific Action Sails Assembly Slide Show: (Large file - loads slowly)

The tutorial provides a supplementary guide to the fitting instructions that are supplied with the Pacific Action sail system and is based on fitting the Pacific Action 1.5sqm sit-in kayak sail system, model PA_MI15. The installation principles are the same for all models, with only minor differences in layout of the trimming line for sit-in vs sit-on-top kayaks. Note for sit-in kayaks, the trimming line (sheet) runs from the left mast shackle to clip point(s) just forward of the cockpit coaming, crossing to the right side, then running forward to the right mast shackle. Sit-on-top kayaks: differ in that the trimming line comes back from the left mast shackle to a position halfway between the left knee and ankle (first clip point), then runs forward around the outside of the footwell (clips 2 & 3), returning to the opposite (right) side for clip 4, then up to the right mast shackle. Canoes: Fitted as for sit-on-top kayaks, with the mast step suspended between the gunwales via the webbing straps.
