Schock 35 Project Boat
We have started to re-rig a Schock 35! The Schock is a one design race boat and is a great boat to re-rig with synthetics as it is very tender. Most sail the Schock 35 with 8 or more sailors on the rail! Reefing sail is recommended at 12 knots! That being said, getting weight off the mast could help this boats performance greatly. The boat has an Aluminum mast with rod rigging, tuff luff headsail foil, undersized synthetic running backs, a boom vang, and lifelines, which are rigged incorrectly and even dangerously. A heavy and leaking hydraulic backstay adjuster and several other areas on the boat that are begging for improvements. We are going to outfit this boat with Colligo hardware from stem to stern, including our new Extra Light Headsail furling (ELHF) system and use this opportunity to show the proper method of using low stretch and high strength synthetics to make things simpler and safer. In addition we will document the changes in weight. Stay tuned!
We plan to replace the current rod rigging with Colligo Dux shrouds. After the re-rig, new backing plates will be installed with titanium thru-bolts with Cheeky Tang™ Fittings, and new turnbuckles. Spreader ends will be modified and overall weight of the rig will be documented. Upper and lower standing rigging will be 9 mm Colligo Dux whereas intermediate shrouds will be 7mm.

EHLF system and other new additions
The hydraulic backstay adjuster will be replaced with a 16/1 adjustable backstay. This will be done by using a triple cascade system with Stackers™ Stackable Static Lashing Blocks. Running backstays will be implemented with Cheeky Tang™ Fittings to a new purchase system showcase some really cool bearing blocks now in development..
