Mast Hoop Rigging

I received my boat with the sail removed.  The mast hoops look different than the ones I have seen as well.   As a result, I am not quite sure how things are supposed to go together.  I believe that I may be missing some shackles or lines.  It was my hope that some of you with the same type of boat could post a few photos of yours so that I can compare to mine. 

My boat is a 1985 Marshall Sanderling.

Please post your mast hoop photos if you have them.  Thanks in advance!

I will post some photos of my Sanderling the next time I'm on the boat but basically each hoop is attached to the U-shaped end of a small shackle with a seizing of sail twine. The clevis pin of the shackle is then attached to the appropriate grommet on the luff of the sail. Hope this helps.

Your description already helps quite a bit. Photos would still be appreciated if you have them. Thanks!

Mast Hoops

Attached is photo oof friends hoop. Older boats used a bronze bow shackle , newer ones use stainless steel. I used tarred synthetic  cod line for my lashing, other us heavy waxed serving thread.

About 8 turns through shackle  and hoop, then about 4 turns at 90 degrees to those between shackle and hoop, finish with square knot or surgions  knot.
