    what is it?

    Oh. Ok. Thanks.

    what is it?

    You are corect in so many ways, however I doubt this is the case with said boat. The topmast running backstay control also goes down below along with the cascade, as well as being 2:1 and going to a winch. Shall we assume that this also goes to a ram???? maybe they dogbone below deck rather than above. Shall I show you examples of this rather than assume as you do?

    It has to do with the throw of the ram vs the amount of ease needed to not interfere with the leeward side of the main, mostly the top third or so with the square top.

    I’d love to see your main’s shape downwind with that going to a ram.

    Why isn`t it a code a negative 1

    If we got that route, what is a -2??? Or the zero is between the a’s and jibs. Name seemed to work fine.

    How do you ease the backstay with a fixed length cascade? Unless they did all that and added runner locks.

    not fine

    Bruce would be. Not sure what Caitlyn has done to qualify.
  8. Good for you on trying to save it, a true hero. I know for a fact you aren't the 'only' one. Come to Newport. It would be eye opening for your small world mind.

    Rio is not power assisted?? Without pedestals that is a lot of top handling....

    Weird. Comanche is man powered with a hydro keel. Rio is powered winches with a fixed keel. Maybe time to rethink things?

    Comanche was not built to rate.
