    Spreader Anarchy

    I cant tell in the other set of pictures, but is there a second piece that gets captured by the 'u' that the wire bears against, or does the wire bear against the end of the spreader anyway? If it just bears on the spreader then the shroud location isn't changing. If you are going to push the boat, I would find something that resembled the missing piece, but all that piece is doing is keeping the wire from leaving the spreader tip. you could try, Dwyer or Zephyr spars on the east coast. They might have something that could work. you could also fab it up out of delrin if you were bored at home some night.

    Physics of sail power.

    Did you just prove that you scientifically can’t sail to your rating?

    Depends on how nice you want it to look. It’s just capturing the wire. You could drill a hole in the spreader and seize it if you wanted.

  5. So you’ll stick around for a baseball game? That doesn’t make sense.

    Find a yacht broker in that red building you know so well and see what he says about the boat

    I think the designer/original owner was out on the west coast, with lofty hopes of the boat becoming a class

    If I didn’t know any better I’d say that’s the Spitfire French/Webb built a handful of years ago. you took that? The boat was sold recently supposedly...

    Shorten Lifelines

    Why does the lifeline need to be shortened by the way? Never fit right or did the stanchions move?
