The C SPRIT® requires placement of two deck mounted brackets and a bobstay attachment point.
1. Locate the mounting brackets just aft of the bow and just inside the toe-rail. See table below for spacing:
3. Drill holes through hull for brackets one at a time. Re-check alignment
for centerline prior to drilling other side.
5. Apply caulking and bolt through backing plates.
2. Rotate the bracket while attached to sprit to the position that most closely aligns will hull. Mark where they touch topsites, this is where the brackets should be mounted.
1. With the mounting brackets attached to the sprit, spread to the prescribed separation per table above.
3. Install the U-bolt which will form the anchor point of the bobstay.
2. Shim mounting brackets level, align bracket with sprit axis. Drill holes through the deck one at a a time.
Re-check alignment before drilling second bracket. Apply caulking and install bolts.
6. Install a strap to hold sprit at horizontal position.
Occasionally existing hardware may prevent deck mounting. In such cases use the EM-1 or EM-2 external mounting brackets. Affix to the toe rail, or bolt through the topsides.
