OLD TRIAK SAILS

"These are great.  Trying to re-rig mine for the season.  It's a complicated rig.  I can see why they went with a roller furler!"

"No-- nothing from Triak. I don't think they have any old rigging diagrams. Mine is mostly rigged. I untied one sheet for transport, and am having trouble with it. I will make it my Columbus Day project to get the boat off its rack and work on…"

OLD TRIAK 002

"Excellent.  This should help with my rigging.  If I still have trouble, maybe I can get you my email and ask for the full hi-res so I can see how that "traveller" at the tack is laced up."

"John-- is there a resource to see how to rig the sail?  I know you switched it out for another sail, but maybe you have the original documentation? I think I untied something during transport and cannot now get the sail to go up and be stable…"

"Thanks for your input and personal experience with the paddles-- I tend to think you're right about individual preferences.  The cheap one I have probably does 95% of what a fancy cf paddle does. Carts-- I've seen one cart with…"

"Good info, thanks, John.  I actually managed to haul the triak by hand down (and back up!) our sizable hill by the water.  I think a larger cart made with 26" bicycle wheels (I'm a bike mechanic) might help it roll better. My…"

Joe, found it, thanks to Heather at Triak. Enter the web site www.triaking.com when it comes on there is a "column" on the right hand side, click on Mk 1 Triaks and the info should come up. If i were you i would make two paper copies of each page of the instructions like i did, but i can only find one set. Try your hardest to get the sails on as soon as possible, summer is short.Of course you know the problem with the weight of the sail on the top of the boat, thats why i put on a Kayaksailor rig on my first Triak, so i could put sails on fairly quickly at the water.

Joe. I have "paper copies" of the instructions to mount the sail on the previous Triak. Probably the easiest way for me to let you have copies is to photograph each page and post them on this site. Providing Triak say it,s ok. I will contact Triak.

Joe, I have been off the site for some time, now that the winter has set in i was wondering if you managed to sort out the sail on the Triak. I used the new design quite a lot last summer and found that a single blade paddle was best so there is no fouling on the sail.

Good day,
 
I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on(agyiripaul@zipmail.com.br) for the full details.

Have a nice day.

Paul

Joe, no doubt you will have a good day on Sunday, Birthdays i like to forget them i now never know when it,s my last. Yes the problem i found with the "old" Triak was the weight, (thats why i took the sail off and put on a Kayaksailor sail) and when you lift it at one end it tries to turn over, this is not only a Triak problem, anything with a weight on top will do the same. So the Kayaksailor sail is put on at the lake side which is what Triak do now with there new boat which i should try and aquire for next year. Now the Triak is in Toronto they might want the original sail on Which is one reason for chasing Triak to have the rigging instructions made available for the old boat. If you are not sure how to see the instructions go onto the Triak web site and at the botton in small print is the Triak blog, click on it and you will see all the 10 pages of instructions.

Joe, did you see that i have been able to get Triak to put the rigging details on their web site for the Triaks that we have, although mine is now in a boat house on the shore of Lake Ontario, a two day drive away. As i still have the sails my son in law will be able to put them on.
