Otca rigging and supplies


New Member
I have a recently restored 18 foot 1968 Otca sailing canoe with all of the equipment (tiller, leeboards and leeboard thwart and a lanteen sail) except for the mast.
Can someone tell me where I can find out how to set up the canoe for sailing? It does not have any blocks or lines other than one attached to the tiller.
I would also like to know where I can buy a mast for the lanteen sail.
Any help would be appreciated.
You can find lots of sailing canoe information at http://www.cedarislandcanoes.com/WCHA-Sailing/ and http://www.dragonflycanoe.com/aca1935/ if you want to build your own mast and rig. Many of the canoe builders and restorers listed at http://www.wcha.org/buildsupply/ and http://www.wcha.org/builders/ would be willing to build a mast or rig your canoe for you. Canoe sailing rigs also show up occasionally in the WCHA classifieds at http://classifieds.wcha.org/ and on http://www.ebay.com although you may need to buy a whole canoe to get one. Feel free to reply here if this information doesn't answer your questions.
