John Gatewood asked us the following rigging question a few months ago, and now that the sailing season is winding down we finally have a chance to answer:

I have almost restored an old Snipe and am in process of rigging. I bought a split mainsheet from APS but am not sure they gave me instructions on how to rig it. I followed the Harken diagram but my boat has blocks under the deck which look like the ones in their reference photos on the APS website. There must be something more to do than tie the ends to a steel plate that is running to the double bullet block located in the middle of the aft cockpit coaming. Can someone tell me the proper way to rig the split mainsheet and how to rig the Augie Equalizer.
