Parts & Accessories for I14 Sailboats
West Coast Sailing is your source for I14 sailboat parts and accessories. The I14 is one of the oldest active dinghy classes, evolving into its present form over the last century. Reaching speeds up to 25 knots, recent I14s feature an ultra-light hull, an asymmetrical spinnaker, and trapezes for both skipper and crew. Carbon gust-response rigs are less prone to damage and foiling rudders combine upwind performance with downwind stability.
Use the diagram below to reference Harken part numbers to appropriate application on your I14 sailboat. Parts recommendations are offered as a guide for common applications.
The strut allows the vang to be mounted further forward on the boom, giving the crew more room and reducing forward gooseneck compression. It also partially isolates the mast from vang loads so the mast can remain straight even at full power.
Mast rake and rig tension are fully adjustable from the trapeze. Two 3:1 cascades, led belowdeck from each shroud, are multiplied by an 8:1 purchase for a brawny 72:1 system.
The self-tacking jib track is W-shaped to curve around the mast, allowing a jib that is larger than the forward triangle. With more sail area and overlapping sails, this system is great for light air and for powering up. Similar to the 49er, the main and jib sheet use a single line for easy access.
