Bieker 4 rigging Schematic

Post by kryngle » Thu Aug 18, 2016 3:46 pm

I recently purchased a Bieker 4 with a CST mast. The previous owner(s) changed some of the rigging around ( in particular the main and lower shrouds ), and there are some holes in the deck for line to be run through without any line. I would like to understand what the original setup was, to that point does anyone know of a place to find a rigging schematic?

You're probably not going to like this answer. There is no standard way to rig an I-14. Even sequential boats built by the same builder will be rigged differently, as every owner has their own preferences. There are two Henderson B-6's here in San Diego, and they are rigged about as differently as you could imagine. The best think to do is look at boats at the dinghy park, or photos on line, and see what you like the best. In the meantime, sail the boat the way the previous owner rigged it; maybe you will see the method to his madness. If not, you will have a better idea of how you want to rig it.

Shu,

Thank you for your response, not a bad answer, if anything it means plenty of entertainment figuring it all out!

Thank you,
Kryngle
