 Rigging Your Banshee

"The stock Banshee, as delivered, can be adequately sailed in moderate to light winds. The addition of a cam cleat for the main, preferably with a ratchet block, is essential to managing the boat in a blow. A second minimum requirement is protective. You should affix a layer of sponge rubber or thick carpet to the rear of the daggerboard well to protect the board’s trailing edge from crushing when you touch bottom. Finally, you should install a rudder lock to keep the rudder on the hull in the event of a capsize. These are essential modifications. Most anything else that you add makes the boat infinitely easier to handle, especially when racing, but is not mandatory. However, if you you’d like to make some changes, the following is my list in order of importance."
