This pennant is used on the at the top of the mast on a Capri 14.2 <-2012 or Capri 16.5 <-2010 centerboard model (not applicable to a keel model) It is used to attach the roller furler upper swivel to the mast tang.
Like all of our rigging, it is made using corrosion resistant type 316 stainless steel wire.
Fabricated using an aircraft fork at the top with a hole that accepts the 3/32" pin of the adjuster. The fork fits nicely inside the width of the OEM
shroud adjuster (see "May we also suggest" below for details). A marine eye sized for a 1/4" pin is swaged
on at the bottom. The 1/4" pin is the typical size needed for use with a Harken or Schaefer small boat furler. It may or may not be the exact dimensions required for your particular installation. Measure carefully before ordering.
Remember that when equipped with roller furling, the adjuster that is normally located at the bottom of the forestay is moved to the top of the forestay. The adjuster is attached directly to the mast and the pennant is pinned into the appropriate hole in the adjuster to achieve the desired mast rake.
1) In 2010 Catalina started supplying their boats with Seldén masts and standing rigging. Current production Capri 14.2 (hulls 5449 and up) and Capri 16.5 (hulls 1050 and up) are now equipped with Seldén rigs. These boats require different mast fittings. If your boat has a Seldén rig, call our Technical Support at 916/843-1971.
2) We will need to know the pin to pin length of your existing pennant.
3) This part number includes only the pennant with swaged on fork and eye. The Shroud Adjuster and Furler Swivel are for illustration purposes only and are not included with the pennant.
4)This is a custom made part. You provide the information we need to build this product for you. Once you order it we are going to build it just for you, just as you asked. We never want to see it again, and no one else wants it either. So be careful and order it correctly the first time because it can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into something different!
